April in Paris...

Is there anything more romantic than April in Paris? I've always wanted to find out! Recently I made a trip to Denver. I found a tablescaper's dream! Sur La Table, a darling shop in Cherry Creek mall, found me and I could not resist. These darling dessert plates were in the window and I knew they must come home with me.
 I'm starting with a white table cloth-again. It reminded me of the sidewalk cafes in Paris. I layered my black chargers from Hobby Lobby with Dusty Rose Fiesta and my cute Eiffel Tower plates.
 I pulled out the polka dot napkins from again, Hobby Lobby and used the fleur-de-lis napkin rings from Sur La Table. I wanted everybody to see the design on the plates, so I did change the placement of the napkin to the water goblet. I like the napkin on the plate or at the side for a more formal look. Having the napkin in the glass seems casual and I guess that napkin placement really depends on the mood you want to set!
 Here's an upclose look at the plates. Paris-Je l'aime!
I have been absent for a few weeks due to vacations, work and the death of a close friend. But I have not forgotten you, you have all set such lovely tables over the past few weeks, Susan, you're incredible! I love coming to your party. Thank You so much for letting me come each week. Now, let's get back to the party, click the "Tablescape Thursday" button to get back to the fun!!!



  2. I am a real fan of pink and black. Yours is wonderful. I love the eiffel tower plates you found. especially with the polka dot napkins.. they are fabulous.. thanks for dropping in and good luck in the giveaway.

  3. This color combination does seem very French to me! Those plates are so cute. Sur la Table used to be a catalog company and I always enjoyed browsing through their collection of goodies! Linda

  4. This is gorgeous. Hope to see you at My Dream Canvas!

  5. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    You table looks lovely. I'm afraid I'll never know about April in Paris...I won't fly! I love the plates and the color combination you used.

  6. I am a huge fan of Sur la Table, too, and always try to visit whenever I'm in a city that has one. I was in one last weekend in Tyson's Corner and found some discounted napkins that would fit in my suitcase. Your table is so pretty -- love the pink with the black and white. I'm sorry you've lost a dear friend -- hugs!
