Tuesday Tablescape - A La Française

Last spring? summer? we had some friends over for dinner. I decided to cook a French meal and decorated the table accordingly. This heavy iron Eiffel Tower was in the middle, with a menu board just like we saw on the sidewalks in France (mine is seriously scaled down). and some fat white candles tied with perky polka-dotted ribbon.

The tablecloth is pale pink and I used black napkins. For place cards I used dollar store miniature frames. I like things that I can use for more than one party. This one was so much fun!

For more beautiful tablescapes, check out the links at Between Naps on the Porch. Susan hosts this event every week. It will soon be moving to Thursday instead of Tuesday.

  1. Thank you for visiting and for your sweet comment. The table setting is lovely, great color combo. I love the reusable frame idea too.

  3. Oooops, sorry, I meant "looking"..Christine

  4. What a simple, chic table...I love it!

    Love the ribbon detail around the candles...I tend to forget about little accents like that.

  5. Love it! I've been thinking about doing something similar. Thanks for the motivation! I love black/white/pink. It's so hard to find a light pink tablecloth, though. I was looking for V-Day but never found one. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Love your tablescape! I think I just might need to join this one!
