Fall and all …

It does not sound real but it is October already and our hydrangeas have turned from blue to rusty reds !

We’ve been busy transforming the shop with all the new things we have been buying all summer long !

We were inspired by our last trip to the Pyrenees and the Basque region of France and Spain ….We loved the food in San Sebastian but we enjoyed the scenery in France much more ….this will have to a post on its own sometimes soon !

Bougies “La Francaise” tapper candles are drip less and come in rich colors perfect for the fall entertaining season ( also in oranges , reds , green , greys , gold ….)

Trendy eggplant and grey table setting ! Amethyst glasses from La Rochere and melamine plates that look so real you can use them indoor anytime !

A myriad of new woven kitchen towels to brighten your kitchen or bring as a hostess gift !

French people BBQ too ! The perfect book for a man who loves meat ….do it French style !

Garnier Thiebaut damask linens trunk show was a success ! We have been using these tablecloths ourselves for over 15 years and they all still look perfect ! Soon we’ll be delivering people’s special orders …being able to order anything out of the catalog is a wonderful thing and our clients took advantage of this opportunity …we ordered even some 144″ long tablecloths that will make a stunning table during the Holidays !

Just a little taste of what’s coming for Christmas ….
