On Monday I had a dinner party with the staff from Bolts in the Bathtub. The occasion? Peggy had been to Paris earlier in the year and was going to give us a slide show of the trip.
The candles are lit and the guests are about to arrive.
Three layers of Eiffel Tower plates and pink & brown towers on cream napkins.
There was a sneak peek at the napkins in my Napkins - Part 1 post last month. The silverware is set à la française.
A special dinner plate for the guest of honor. I only have six place settings of the tower, so this worked out well.
My friend Nancy B purchased it for me as a gift the first year she taught at Bolts. We love to look for Frenchie stuff together.
Of course there was a cheese plate.
Various desserts were laid out on the sideboard. Along with my pink Eiffel Tower. You can just barely see it on the left. I think I might be time to paint it black or white.
Coconut macaroons in an antique covered crystal, it had belonged to Stephanie Slater, a sweet and loving woman who passed away years ago. The salt & pepper shakers on the table were also hers.
A trio of sweet bites from the freezer section of Trader Joe’s. Vanilla meringues under glass and Ferrero Rocher chocolates await the dessert hour.
Macarons à la parisienne in the shadow of the pink Eiffel.
One of Peggy’s slide show pictures. A beautiful day in Paris.
