Celebrate cherry blossom season with a French touch! Fauchon, the purveyor of all things gourmet, has put together a delectable assortment of morsels that will add a little Continental flair to any hanami party. The “Fauchon Cube Hanami” features three varieties of their bread cubes – croissant, brioche, and baniya (preserved cherry blossoms) – along with three flavored spreads: fines herbes, cream cheese and paprika, and whipped butter and mustard. Also included are four glass markers, a set of utensils, and what may be the kit’s pièce de résistance: a pink picnic mat. Bid au revoir to that blue tarp…

The Fauchon Cube is on sale at Takashimaya stores in Nihonbashi, Shinjuku, and Yokohama, but eight lucky Insider Club members will receive a Fauchon Cube Hanami for free, which they can pick up at either Shinjuku Takashimaya or Nihonbashi Takashimaya Not a member yet?
