Table Setting: Dessert With Friends-Paris Inspired


The dishes are a new purchase from TJMaxx's clearance ($2 each!) - reminiscent of a trip to Paris a couple of years ago. The napkins and placemats, goblets and  vase are from TJMaxx/Homegoods as well as the chef holding the chalkboard.  All purchased on clearance.  The votive candle holder is from Crate and Barrel, the river rock table runner is from Coldwater Creek (and I was thrilled to score IT on clearance) and the napkin holders, which are mini vases, are from Lillian Vernon.  The placecard "photo" holders 
are also from Crate and Barrel.
