Our lovely friend SJ had a very special birthday recently, so we celebrated in style with a ‘Springtime in Paris’ themed dinner party.
Our table setting was adorned with a fresh spring table runner of ivy, blossom and florals. Small vases and silver candlesticks added height across the table, and sage coloured cloth napkins and cute mismatched vintage side plates completed the look. All of this complemented with romantic candlelight, because after all, this is Paris!
For our main food table, along with a big French flag, a Paris ‘Metro’ lamp post and the obligatory photo of the Eiffel Tower, French foods were utilised as part of our décor. There were French cheeses and baguette, and our tiered cake plates were piled high with macarons and profiteroles. Dinner included French classics Coq Au Vin and Ratatouille, and of course this was all accompanied by plenty of French wine. Our favourite of the night was a lovely Beaujolais.
French music helped to set the scene, plenty of Edith Piaf, Françoise Hardy and Serge Gainsbourg. Plus passing the berets around provided a few laughs!
Bon anniversaire, SJ!
