Joyeux Noel Dinner Party

The table is set for a very French Holiday Dinner Party. My angels from Pierre Deux were the inspiration for the tablescape, along with dishes I bought in France years ago.

The dishes are from Genevieve Lethu in the "Manon" pattern. They have the traditional French Proven├žal pattern around the rim in a lovely red, gold and French blue. Unfortunately, they are no longer available.

The napkins compliment the dish pattern nicely. I love the angel napkin rings too that echo the two centerpiece angels. They are all playing a musical instrument!

The angel in her traditional provencal fabric dress playing the harp.

I love this one playing the guitar. I think she compliments the dishes and red stemware nicely.

The paperwhites add a nice touch to the natural tablescape of burlap, pinecones and reed chargers.

Bon appetit mon ami! Joyeux Noel!

Lovely, rich and french! So beautiful. I love the burlap runner with the rich color of the plates, napkins and stemware. The natural elements fit so well with the whole french feel.
What a prize- those "french" angels makes an inspirational statement for your wonderful table.

I loved spending the day with you and experiencing the world of design and decorating through your eyes (chicken skin) Fun day and as always great shopping. The table looks fantastic, warm and just says "sit down, feast, enjoy and be at peace."
