When Kathleen gave us our Let's Dish challenge for July, it made me very happy!
Our theme is A Destination Tablescape
So come join me as we prepare for our trip to
If your a follower of A La Carte you know that Paris has been a dream of mine since I was a teenager. This past Mother's Day my daughter Ashleigh gifted me with a trip to Paris, France which I will take sometime in 2013
This table is a fun way to prepare for my trip!
These Paris dessert plates were found at two different thrift stores.
I love them of course!
I used the colors from the dessert plate to make this black, white and red table
All of these plates were thrifted. Red charger plate, black Fiesta plate, red salad plate and the fun desert plates!
I bought the black and white placemats at Dollar Tree
A black stemmed wineglass to toast with
The centerpiece is my collection of items from or about Paris, France
The postcard is from a friends trip to Paris. The small Eiffel Tower souvenir was brought back from Paris by my daughter Sara when she went with her High School Choir! She had an amazing time and her choir was able to sing in Notre Dame!
My Paris travel guide and a 'French for Travellers' book are topped by a larger Eiffel Tower that was a gift to Mr ALC!
Anytime I receive a card with a Paris theme it joins my collection!
This Eiffel Tower tealight holder was also thrifted
A simple black napkin and a red napkin ring along with my red handled flatware complete this setting
I want to try a crockpot Coq Au Vin recipe
Guess I better start studying! It's been many years since High School French!
Thanks Kathleen for hosting
