A Valentine’s Series, the love of home, family and friends
It is a dark rainy day so I have been reminiscing of most enjoyable days of lunching with friends and family while in France. Having found two of my favorite dolls on sale recently, I decided to set them up to lunch! I would love for you to play along with me.
The cafe, tucked away in the heart of old town Paris is know for it’s Brittany crepes and relaxed atmosphere. This is the scene for two good friends on vacation from the states to meet up and enjoy a leisurely lunch while in Paris.
The Paris Cafe
Annabelle and Skylar are seated. The waiters at this very popular Paris Cafe bring out and set up another table near the outdoor terrace beside a wall of windows. The pretty cafe curtains speak the language of Brittany, France with the traditional Breton costume.
Making room for Annabelle and Skylar
These two friends love to dress in their favorite dresses and sit for hours and chat. The sun’s rays shine through the open weave of the curtain fabric and warms the room on this cold day in February.
The table is set with a lovely Quimper tea service. The colors in the pottery compliment the lace tablecloth and and floral napkins.
Soon the table is set for tea. Delicious pastries, sandwiches and shortbread filled with clotted cream and jam.
Fine ceramic flatware with lots of glitter lets the table sparkle.
The serving plate
Is filled with treats
After a wonderful tea with delicate cakes and delicious sandwiches the table is cleared.
And, these two friends sit on into the late afternoon planning their next destination lunch!
I will always remember the Paris Cafe!
If you are still here I hope you enjoyed the fun. I always love getting together for lunch with friends and family. Whether it’s close to home or a destination it will always and forever be special memories. Thanks for stopping in and I hope you will leave a comment, it’s the only way I know you were here.
