the french garden party and a giveaway

Who doesn’t love a garden party?! Here at MFCH we are celebrating! Can you believe that this next box is the 30th edition of My French Country Home Box? I’m not sure how those years have gone past so quickly!!

I know that some of our clients have subscribed to the box from the very first edition – which is totally wonderful for us, and the greatest compliment we could wish for

The fun of curating these collections has never faded. Sometimes it is more challenging than others, if one of the items is held up in production. Or if at the last minute we realise we can’t fit everything into the box (true story! it happened once, but not twice!). More than anything it is our privilege to curate these collections with you our clients in mind, and introduce you to our favorite French brands.

The giveaway!

To celebrate this special anniversary, we have curated a box for you around the theme The Garden Party. I absolutley love a Garden Party?! Summer vibes, roses blooming, easy entertaining, pretty tables, champagne and wine, and a wonderful moment with friends.

So because I can’t actually invite you all to a French Garden Party, we are doing the next best thing and giving away two of our Boxes! Two people will have the chance to receive our Garden Party Box as a gift.

Hello Sharon, here in the Australian capital city, Canberra, we are in the early throes of Autumn, the temperatures have dipped and the deciduous trees are about to show us their Autumn colours. So not a time for any Spring Garden Parties, but a nevertheless a change in the light and colour to celebrate after a long Summer. I would feel privileged to be selected for your wonderful MCFH Box giveaway.

Hi Sharon, writing from Australia, it has long been a dream to travel to France and I’m sure I’ll get there one day in the meantime your magazine keeps the dream alive!

Rob March 24, 2024 - 7:48 am

I’ve never been to a garden party – although I’ve had the perfect hat ready for years…!

Rita March 24, 2024 - 11:35 am

Beautiful photos of the garden party. What a delight it would be to host a garden party in autumn here in Melbourne with French items. My daughter has mastered making madeleines and they would definitely be on the menu.

Adrienne Gemmill March 24, 2024 - 1:17 pm

I have not been able to find a MFCH in New Zealand so my glimpse on line is all I have. Nothing can beat a cup of coffee with a beautiful magazine on your knee. A gift box has me salivating. What a treat that would be

Becky Robertson March 24, 2024 - 1:44 pm

What a beautiful garden party! I would love to win the box to transform my patio and garden into a beautiful garden setting.

Sally Bainbridge March 24, 2024 - 5:13 pm

Bonjour and merci for the fun chance to play along! Love a garden party and who doesn’t?!? Your MFCH boxes are exceptional and this last one was especially gorgeous. It arrived while I was hosting Bridge and my friends were in awe and couldn’t get over the wonderful items!
Bon journée ⚜️

Love all of your posts and everything French Country! Our son asks “How are you going to live French Country in a Florida home?”
I said “ I already do…. In my heart ❤️ “

sandi March 24, 2024 - 6:09 pm

My DD gave me a subscription to your magazine for Christmas & I hope to find time for a leisurely read when the weather is hazy & I can’t pull weeds! I love the flowers in the tiny aperitif glasses. I actually have some of these & am going to try it. I bought them in France on my 70th b-day almost 10 yrs. ago now! Happy Spring to you & yours & let’s meet again here soon.

Bev March 24, 2024 - 6:10 pm

A garden party box would be lovely to win. Thank you for doing this!

Stephanie M Guillory March 24, 2024 - 6:49 pm

A Spring Garden Party is a delight for the senses and balm for the winter soul. Our favorite French food, flowing Spring dresses, strappy sandals, and good champagne would be nice but the best of all at a garden party are our friends. I’d love to celebrateSpring with you!

Cindy Molder March 24, 2024 - 6:52 pm

Oh if I could only win the giveaway. I don’t usually enter such things but this one, what a beautiful offering to those who follow you. Kind Regards, Cindy Molder

Annamaria Jalili March 24, 2024 - 7:14 pm

I ordered three boxes in the past and they gave pleasure to the recipients, so if I would win one for myself it would be delightful!

Chele K March 24, 2024 - 7:19 pm

French garden party is something I’ll never be party to, but to have the chance to have one In Minnesota US, is just wonderful!

Liz March 24, 2024 - 7:22 pm

I feel like I am there at the garden party with the brilliant photos and wonderful stories and articles of the event. It truly draws you into the scene. Love, love, love the magazine and become engaged into the French elegance with each page. Would welcome a chance to experience the Spring garden party, even though I am in the snowy Colorado Spring days.
Thank you for this opportunity.

Athina March 24, 2024 - 7:23 pm

How lovely! I love garden parties! I recently planted two new roses in my garden and I can’t wait for them to bloom already… The petals of one of them are edible, so maybe some recipes with rose petals would be perfect for the next garden party! – Athina

Vicky from Athens March 24, 2024 - 7:53 pm

Sharon, how I’d love to come to a garden party at your house!!! I’ll bet you are “the hostess with the mostest” and it would be unforgettable! But winning a box might be the next best thing. As we are getting a taste of Spring here in N. Georgia the thought of hosting a garden party has my creative juices flowing . Thank you for the opportunity to win a box of French garden party treats!

Karen March 24, 2024 - 7:56 pm

Hello Sharon, I absolutely love your posts and would love to be considered for a garden party box please! Here in Canada I am patiently awaiting signs of spring. Winning one of these beautiful boxes would be such a treat.

Erica Stark March 24, 2024 - 7:58 pm

As spring sneaks up on Texas, I’m enchanted by the wildflowers blanketing every paddock. I’d love a chance to win a taste of France as spring days bring all their beauty and warmth to that beautiful country.

Bonjour Sharon,

Thank you as always for the opportunity to win a MFCH box. The garden party one is lovely. My mother passed away on 12-21-22. I miss her every day. If the box becomes a gift to me, I will have a wonderful little celebration in honor of her with the beautifully crafted items within. My garden is in full bloom and your magazines and inspiring words about all things France are always a welcome refreshment in my world. The very best of everything to you and may your business flourish with all things new and beautiful~ Juliana

Erika Carter March 25, 2024 - 1:29 am

Would be lovely to win the garden party box. Spring has arrived and would be a wonderful celebration.

Linda Hovgaard March 25, 2024 - 1:55 am

A garden party box would be a dream come true! I would be so excited to open it but I think the funnest way to see what’s inside would be to have a garden party and then reveal what is inside! How fun would that be! I so enjoy following your posts and discovering the hidden treasures in one of your boxes would be such a magical moment…thank you for the opportunity!

Christy March 25, 2024 - 2:47 am

The photos are beautiful! There’s a certain magic to the idea of a garden party. Would love to win a box to create that feeling at home

It would be so fabulous to win this incredible gift. Thanks for the chance.

Candie March 25, 2024 - 6:15 am

Elizabeth Betty ann Campbell March 25, 2024 - 7:49 am

I would love to have a garden party. What a great idea

Elizabeth Betty ann Campbell March 25, 2024 - 7:50 am

Wonderful idea

Laurie Sawyer March 25, 2024 - 12:58 pm

Love the idea above of opening your beautiful box at my own garden party. Since my azaleas, bulbs and fruit trees are in full bloom now I had better schedule a party soon. The weather just needs to warm up a little! Have loved the boxes I have received (especially the Advent) and would love to win this one.

Maureen E McCroskey March 25, 2024 - 2:05 pm

What a lovely giveaway!

Erin March 25, 2024 - 2:46 pm

Looking at all the beautiful photos of flowers posted in your magazine for Easter I am
reminded to get my new dahlia bulbs into my garden!
Au revoir, a la prochaine!

noreen alexander March 25, 2024 - 10:22 pm

A French Garden Party! What a wonderful and clever idea! I would love to win the giveaway, as here at the bottom of Afrique du Sud, we have just started to feel the nip in the air as autumn comes on – we may have to move the party inside to an undercover verandah!

NANCY BRADLEY WIARD March 26, 2024 - 2:55 am

What a wonderful opportunity to receive a box. I enjoy the magazine very much!

Maxine Lynton March 26, 2024 - 3:03 am

How joyous it would be to receive your Garden Party Box. We adore France and it’s many facets of gardening.
We have had a wretched hot summer here in Australia and a lot of my garden pretties have shrivelled up. Spring is my favourite time in the garden. Thank you kindly for this opportunity, my heart will sing with glee should I be so fortunate!

Diane March 26, 2024 - 10:23 am

As always, your photos are beautiful and inspiring. Every time I go into my garden I think of you & the wonderful gardens I’ve seen & read about in your magazine and online.
We are just starting to enjoy autumn here in Australia with cool mornings and watching the leaves on the trees change colour.

Lorrie Orr March 27, 2024 - 5:50 am

Another lovely giveaway opportunity. The idea of a French Garden Party is so appealing. Love the magazine that I pick up at our local bookstore, and I so enjoy the gardens you feature.

Darla c March 27, 2024 - 11:53 am

I don’t have social media so just commenting. Thanks for the giveaway.

Elizabeth L March 30, 2024 - 1:22 am

Thank you, Sharon, for the chance to win your generous give away! The weather here in Ontario, Canada would require garden party guests to wear fashionable parkas, wool berets and have access to a hot toddy.
My brother just gave me your March/April MFCH magazine as a birthday gift and the layer cake with spring flowers would be the icing on the cake! I have the full collection of your gorgeous magazines. Thank you for enriching our lives with your informative and lusciously beautiful publications.

Christine Scotnicki April 3, 2024 - 7:29 pm

Spring is my absolutely favourite time of year, and it would truly be sublime to win a box! I subscribed for 2 years and continue to enjoy the many lovely things I received in my boxes over that time. Miss the anticipation of knowing many special things were in store for me each time a box was on its way.
