There are few better things than an early rise on a Parisian Sunday morning and, after putting on a casual yet utterly romantic grey sweatshirt with a wool skirt and picking up your wicker basket, stopping by your favourite café for a morning croissant, café au lait and maybe even an éclair au chocolat on your way to your favourite street market . . .

Perhaps, for tonight's dinner, the best organic fromage, freshly baked baguettes, a bottle of red wine, and of course flowers, presented to you in the most impossibly enchanting of ways, from simple newspaper wraps to pastel-coloured pails . . .

MARCHÉ RASPAIL : A lovely organic open-air market in the 6th arrondissement with a particularly laid-back atmosphere and enchanting sights of Parisians exchanging pleasantries and comparing prices, as well as flower stalls overflowing with peonies in every hue of pink you could wish for.

MARCHÉ MAUBERT : Situated on the left bank, and a short walk away from charming Île de la Cité, the oldest street market in Paris has, amongst an array of artichokes, carrots and leeks and food pour manger sur le pouce / to eat on the go, the most beautiful sea of scents and colours, selling billowy hydrangeas, sunflowers and gardenias -- ideal for a bouquet in the living room or the kitchen.

MARCHÉ AUX FLEURS ET AUX OISEAUX : Right in the centre of Île de la Cité and open every day for fresh delicacies, on Sundays the market becomes an exotic, trés Parisienne fusion of blooming flowers and birds from all over the world, where one can amble endlessly and lose oneself amongst the sweet trills and scents.

These photographs are fantastic, inspires me to head straight to the market and fill the whole house with beautiful fresh flowers. Peonies are my absolute fave, they smell divine!
