Paris for Valentines Day!

 Doesn't the idea of being in Paris sound so romantic for Valentine's Day?

Indulge yourself with me and lets pretend we're there!
 Entrer Cafe Chez Liz

 First you will notice la pâte exquise!

 La tour Eiffel dressed with a bed of roses

Snow flakes et amour

Time for le dîner

Evening has arrivé ...
La Tour Eiffel is lighted

 Dining for deux!

Wishing you a loving Valentine's Day

  Je te aime

Notes: I used a battery operated puck light placed in the top of a 
glass candle votive for the light (I covered the top with a circle of wax paper because it was a bit bright).  
I dressed the Eiffel Tower with vines of ivy (which is actually a jewelry tree). 
Satin hearts from Michael's with satin ribbon tacked on.
I used a translator from Google- hopefully I didn't make any big mistakes!

  7. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I can hear the music from "Something's Gotta Give" playing in my head as I peek at the pictures! I have never been to Paris, but I can imagine the level of romance would be greatly heightened over Valentine's Day in Lee's Summit, MO!!! :-)

    I love the lighted Eiffel Tower! That is really, really cool! This is a wonderfully romantic setting for Valentine's Day or any time you want to woo your other half!

  8. Super cute table liz, love the French theme, and the silverware is so so so cute, I must have item for us tablescapers. Have a great week my friend.
