Ralph Lauren hand tooled leather placemat vintage Audrey
My dining room chairs are from Anthropoligie and I had them shipped from Dallas to France. They make quite a statement.
Arrangement made of purple artichokes, red cabbage, little purple flowers, eggplant and red amaryllis.
Table is set with Ralph Lauren placemats, dishes from Provence, France, silverware is Grand Baroque by Wallace and the napkins are Colin Cowie for Lenox vintage Audrey.
There were 8 of us for dinner and I tried as hard as I could to make it an authentic Moroccan meal. The main course was chicken and the side dishes were tomato/cucumber salad, carrot salad and lentil salad. The cous-cous was brought by my friend Wendy.
We started with samosas and gougeres (little french cheese puffs). These were accompanied by pink champagne, two bottles of which was polished off very quickly.
All recipes will be published on my sidebar if you are interested.
We proceeded into the dining room and the last guests stayed into the wee hours of the morning.
Since David and Katie left on the 7:30 train to Paris next morning and then onto their flight to Los Angeles, we didn't get much sleep that night.
A great time was had by all.
