Inspiration Baord: Parisian Grammar School

Joyeux 14 juillet! (They don't actually call it 'Bastille Day' in La Belle France... that's a US thing). In honor of the day, I thought it was fitting to share another one of the inspiration boards I collaborated with Cambria Evans of J.Bartyn Design for Minted, this one is based around her fabulous 'Parisian Grammar School' invitation that was inspired by "grammar school badges, grid notebooks and caf├ęs of Paris." And fittingly, it's in an all blue, white and red scheme.
Tres chic, non? Do you lovelies have any French inspired plans for the day? I made fresh macarons aux framboises last night and am going to make a souper ala Julia Child or from my new fave cooking show, French Food at Home. This will inspire me for this coming Saturday when I am taking an all day cooking class at Le Cordon Bleu in Portland called "Celebration of French Cuisine" - so excited.
