‘Tis the Season For Pumpkin Spice!

Sound of crunching leaves beneath your feet, the feeling of a cool breeze, seeing colors of red, brown and yellow, and the smell of Pumpkin Spice are officially in the air! Hello Autumn! img_0685


I’m sure we have seen the store shelves filled with pumpkin spice treats ranging from cookies, mixers, beers, desserts, etc., the list is endless! And guess what, we are joining in on the madness! That’s right you will be finding Pumpkin Spice Macarons and Pumpkin Spice Lattes at the shop in downtown!

So, for all you Pumpkin Spice lovers out there, we have your Pumpkin Spice fix coming to you!

Make-Your-Own-Pumpkin-Pie-Spice


But, let’s take a step back and see where this Pumpkin Spice craze started. It is said that the first reference to Pumpkin Spice was in “American Cookery” by Amelia Simmons, in 1794. With this, as urbanization started to grow and develop with the Industrial Revolution, there was a need to keep connection with agrarian lifestyle, which is how pumpkin, and more specifically pumpkin spice became an essential  American tradition.diy-pumpkin-pie-spice


With that being said, everyone can use a little more SPICE in their life! Feel free to come in and indulge in Pumpkin Spice Macarons and a Pumpkin Spice Latte!

“Spice up your life” with us this Fall Season!

Merci!

Dogs of Le Parfait Paris

In case you didn’t know, Le Parfait Paris is one of the many places in downtown that is dog friendly. Your furry friends are always welcome to come sit along with you and your friends for your morning breakfast, lunch time break, and your evening drink!

We at Le Parfait think that man’s best friend always has a place in our hearts and are just as important as you wonderful customers!

Just thought I’d take a moment and not only introduce the newest Le Parfait Paris furry member, but to feature some of our staffs furry  friends as well.


IMG_6249First off, let’s meet the newest member, Leya; she’s a rescue dog and we were told she is a breed of Boxer and possibly Pitbull. She’s been with the Le Parfait Family not too long, therefore she is still adjusting to the many faces of the shop. She’s a little skittish at first, but once you get her comfortable enough she will delightfully let you pet her. She’s only 4 months old and learning really quickly; her mom and dad got her pretty well potty trained as well! She loves playing with her chew toys and sleeping  most of the day just like most puppies do. Welcome to the Family Leah!

2015-08-21 15.04.18-1Next we have Laura’s critters, Cleveland and Dallas. The golden one is Cleveland and the black one is Dallas. They’re both two years old and best friends; they won’t do anything without each other.  Dallas loves playing fetch,  but all Cleveland likes to do is chase birds and butterflies. They make awesome hiking dogs and are always entertaining Laura and her husband. Crazy rascals!

FullSizeRender-4Lastly we have my two rascals, Nanook and Luna. Nanook is my old man, at almost 12 years old. He’s a Husky Shepard mix and loves to go swimming on hot days. He’s all bark no bite, he will lick you before he bites you. FullSizeRender-3

As for Luna, she’s my little spazoid. She’s a Terrier Poodle mix and loves to play. She especially loves to play with her big brother Nanook; I think she keeps him young.


There are others that are part of the Le Parfait Family, but are too shy to be mentioned and put in the spotlight. But, they are all happy members as well!

So, if you have furry friends of your own, they are always welcome at Le Parfait Paris.  If you’d like to share your story about your furry friends you can always tag them @leparfaitparis or #LeParfaitParis, whenever at the shop!

Come on in to the shop this weekend and make it a doggy date with you and your furry family members!

Happy Furry Friday everyone!

Merci!
