See You In Paris Tablescape


Yes, we are off today, but I wanted to post a table for
the week before I left.  Obvioiusly no restaurant tables
are going to look like this, but it has been fun playing
with photos and food while preparing for our trip.





Chartreuse, black and white make up this pretty
table celebrating our upcoming trip to Paris and Italy.




The table was inspired by these lovely lilies placed
in a purse shaped vase.  


Of course the purse is perfect
to showcase shopping in Paris.  You
can see the handles of the green glass
purse peeking through here.

I have also added a little mannequin to
represent shopping!


































 A little fleur de lys on the table is
also perfect.


































Square shaped plates were layered over a 
chartreuse woven placemat and a square black
charger.  The green evokes feelings of spring.



































The green bubble glasses fit perfectly.



Lilies are so lovely and last so long.


























































We need a small Eiffel Tower to add to the table.


































And how about a beautiful artichoke placed
in a square ramekin to top everything off.



































We even have a chartreuse candle in this beautiful
metal candleholder with a little fleur de lys on top.


































Now I think it is perfect! 

I hope to be able to connect to the internet
and have power to my computer without
frying it!  

Wish me luck!  I will post all I can and if
not, I will see you when I return.

I will be posting this with
