THE WORLD OF CLARIS: THE CHICEST MOUSE IN PARIS
 When Megan Hess released her first children's book earlier this year, fans and fashionista's across the globe went crazy. The celebrated Fashion illustrator has sketched for Chanel, Dior, Cartier, Louboutin, Louis Vuitton + more ... It was time this Melbourne gal created a story about a chic little mouse who dreamed of the haute couture of Paris - especially for children. Visit with us as we take the beautiful story book and create The World of Claris, complete with frills, macarons, and hot air balloons that look like soufflé's. 
 

LE PETIT GOÛTER (French high tea for children)

Why do adults get all the fun? Register your child for a one hour French high tea with unlimited juice, mini pastries, macarons and baguettes. 
Best part - you get to drop them off for an hour , wander the rest of the festival and maybe sneak in some Champagne. 

L'HEURE DU GOÛTER (All ages French High Tea + a glass of champagne)
We couldn't start planning a fabulous frilly high tea for little people, without creating one for the big kids too. Join us in a VIP guest lounge for a very Chic, very French Haute tea! Champagne is essential for adults - and your entourage will delight in all the French classics. P
âté , a little terrine, definitely the cornichons, fromage bien sur, washed down with madeleines and Champagne. C'est magnifique!
