Strolling through Paris ~ A Paris Themed Tablescape
Love to take a stroll through Paris, the City of Lights? You can with our Paris themed tablescape, tidbit information and lovely French inspired menu. Bon Appétit!
We found some cute Paris themed decor at Hobby Lobby and built the table around it. The Eiffel Tower was originally hot pink, so we spray painted it tan, so it would match the canister, floral container and tins.
We wanted to keep a soft pastel look, so we found the placemats and napkins at Stein Mart. The cream plates were purchased from Home Goods. We also purchased the napkin rings from Stein Mart and they go perfectly with our table. The canvas bags we found in the dollar section at Michael’s.
There were a few options for the canvas bags, so we choose ones with a Paris theme. Don’t you just love it when everything comes together?
