As you know, the Christmas fat quarters will be making their way to France tomorrow. I was really the one who was supposed to go this summer but I'll have to be happy with that for now. Tonight our book club discussed A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle. We all agreed that reading the book made us very hungry and Connie, our hostess, certainly took care of that. And her decorations more than set the mood for our discussion.
|Isn't this table just gorgeous. The sunflowers and tablecloth were perfect.|
|Connie carried the decor into the kitchen too. Just love the Eiffel Tower on the island.|
Connie did her usual special food preparations and they were all in keeping with the theme. We enjoyed the food and also our book discussion, which lasted almost 3 hours.
|No French repast is complete without Brie. Yummm.|
You can see the wonderful shrimp that she prepared and the pretty sunflower napkin. Forgot to wait until she put the delicious onion, goat cheese pizza on the table. (Look at the next picture.)
|Okay, the remainders of the pizza are on the blue plate. Obviously, we all loved it.|
This table reminded me of the after dinner tables described in the book.
