The world’s largest Christmas tree made of Ladurée macarons can now be found at Paris’ InterContinental. The brightly colored tree consists of 8,000 macarons, piled nearly 14 feet high. Colors include green, yellow, black, blue, and red with a touch of silver, along with a pompous Elizabethan ruffle collar - inspired by Paris Carnival. 27 smaller macaron trees is spread out throughout the hallways of InterContinental — Le Grand, and are built with macarons in tones of rose, lavender, orange, and melon. Ladurée’s team of 50 spent two weeks creating the macarons used, plus one night of setting it all up at the hotel. The partnership between the hotel and bakery has a deeper meaning as well: This Christmas tree display marks 150 years of shared history between the hotel and Ladurée, as they both began in 1862.
