A Parisian Tale is a boutique event planning company focusing exclusively on fine French cuisine and wine, fashion, music, and all of the intricate elements that can be woven together to create experiences that spark all of the senses. Clients are accepted on a limited basis to ensure that each client receives a level of care and customization that makes their guests feel as if they have truly traveled to the French countryside. As an all-inclusive company, A Parisian Tale caters to the every need of their clients, which include event planning, catering, entertainment, decor, and all other details
How it works: the host (you) works with us to create a bespoke experience, perfectly tailored to your event. We also offer two customizable packages with add-on options. Once the host has decided upon the experience, we take care of everything from décor, food preparation, wine, entertainment and serving staff. Enjoy a homemade menu in the comfortable environment of your own home or office while enjoying the service, entertainment and décor of a five-star restaurant.
For example: our trained Chef will prepare French family favourites in your kitchen while our Sommelier and Fromager walk you through the specifics of French wine and cheese. After dinner, our talented Singer, Mélyssa Rose, entertains guests with classic songs from the Golden Age of Parisian music. Every experience is designed to transport you to Paris and awaken all of your senses.
Meet the Team
Born in Strasbourg, France, Roxane is a dual citizenship holder (French and Canadian) who grew up in the multicultural city of Luxembourg. As a child, she developed an interest for exotic and diverse cuisine as her family owned multiple restaurants, bars and nightclubs in the city.

She is the owner of RDK Events & Communications, an event planning agency based in Toronto which specializes in weddings and fashion event planning.

She is constantly on the look-out for new challenges and describes her style as “minimalist chic”.
SINGER AND STORY TELLER
Born and raised in France, Mélyssa moved to New York City at the age of thirty years old to pursue her dream of becoming a jazz singer. With absolutely no musical background or contacts, she realized her childhood dream: singing jazz in the Big Apple.
After one year in New York City performing in bars, French restaurants and jazz clubs, Mélyssa moved to Toronto – a move which allowed her to balance music and a more peaceful way of life. Specializing in French music from the 1950s, Mélyssa interprets and tells stories, uncovering the secrets of the songs in her repertoire. The singer also lends herself to American jazz standards, but always with a Parisian esthetic. Mélyssa is a born natural with a certain “je ne sais quoi”.
