Vous allez a Paris? A trip planning lunch outside

I love to help friends plan their trips especially trips to Paris!
La Tour Eiffel she is beautiful, non? Display piece from Target

Some great guides and books to peruse before visiting

Can-Can plate by Phillippe Deshoulieres one of 6 in a set

Green square from Sweet Olive from Home Goods- Fuchsia charger Lynn Chase

Napkin rings from blog Style Sisters
Le Jacquard Francaise napkins

Each Phillippe Deshoulieres plate has a different scene of Paris

Bon voyage!

A friend just found out she is going to Paris!! It will be her first visit. I've invited her to lunch to help her plan her trip a bit and answer some of her questions. It can be a bit overwhelming the first visit to Europe especially to a country with a different language
It is a mild Spring-like day here about 65 outside and partly sunny. So I got out some of my Paris books, Paris photos and my Paris themed plates for a lunch outside!
Two books I always recommend are Suzy Gershwin's Born to Shop Paris and Patricia Wells Food Lovers Guide to Paris. It is about so much more than food!

Please join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch
for more tablescapes . Merci to Susan for doing this fun blog party every week.

Have a Pink day!


  1. I love this table and all of the vibrant PINK! I saw those green square dishes at HG but passed as I was trying to be good. They look magnificent. Ithink I'm regreeting my decision.

    What a fabulously happy tablescape!! Love the square plates, your friend is a lucky girl to have been treated to such a lovely lunch, and an amazing trip to come!! and oh I am so jealous of 65 degrees!!

  3. Ooh la la! C'est tres jolie!

    How sweet of you to help your friend plan her trip. It's been years since I was in Paris, but I remember that it truly is the most romantic city that I have ever visited.

    I love the pinks and greens. So pretty, so romantic...just like Paris.

    Thanks for visiting my new little blog and leaving such a kind comment! I'm following you now!
