Cafe Chez Lizzie

Come on in!
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Welcome to my Bistro inspired 
dining table!
 A morning breakfast table has been set 
and is ready to go! 

A new set of dishes inspired me...they are called
Bistro de Paris 

 After exploring pictures on the internet I noticed a common thread with Bistro tables.  They are simple, have a tablecloth and always have a floral arrangement.

I made a trip to my garden to create a casual bouquet for my table

The hydrangeas are perfect right now and the Stella d'Oro  Lilies are displaying a 2nd round of flowers, I also included Black Eyed Susans, Russian Sage, Yarrow and a Cone Flower...

I used these black dinner plates like a charger to separate the checkered pattern on the table from the dishes. 

My Pottery Barn napkin rings were used to casually gather the napkins.

 For effect, I used the manual setting on my camera, changed the F stop and created an early evening look...

And there you have it...my morning bistro
 setting for two!

P.S.
I have to show you how these dishes came too...
 I love the box and plan to keep it!
It's oval in shape and I can store the dishes in it
when not in use.  

 My Stemware which I didn't seem to capture very well in my pictures.   They are made by LaRochere

Thanks for visiting!

  8. Welcome back to the wonderful world of tablescaping, Miss Liz! You've come back with a barn burner!!! Wow...I love, love, love the dishes!!! They really do look like something you'd see in a fine bistro! I really like the tablecloth, too. That wide swath of darker checks really makes it stand out! This would make eating croissants and sipping cafe au lait even more special!!! Beautiful!

  11. OOh you took me all the way back to any charming bistro along the rue st. Germain in Paris.. I love the dishes! Totally liking those napkin rings too. It's just a wonderful setting. I do the same on my camera.. I even take it to the P (aperture priority) and lower the light that comes in.. works too. Your shot with the candle and the glass from the door is fabulous. Love the flowers too.. xo marlis
