Ladurée Christmas trees showcased at Intercontinental Paris Le Grand Hotel

The exclusive hotel, located near the Paris Opera, gave carte blanche to the famous pastry house, which celebrates its 150th birthday this year.

Ladurée chose its iconic macarons to design the original trees. Each luxurious biscuit is covered with a "Gold and Cashmere" icing for a dazzling finish.

From December on, tourists and Intercontinental guests will be able to take a peek at these creations in the hotel lobby: the seasonal exhibition runs from December 1 to January 12, 2013.
