Table for a Snow Day


Bonjour

 It has been a wonderful week for me with many nice happenings. Sunday the 20th was my birthday and I received wishes from my near & dear ones. This is my 50th post for my blog Crystal Grandeur. Another pleasant surprise included seeing my 'Horse Drawn Memories' post getting featured in Marty's (A Stroll Thru Life) 150th  party features. Being in a happy mood & with Valentines Day around the corner, I present this tablescape about a winter love story.

 The name Paris conjures up images of Beauty, Love, Romance, Perfume, Wine, Cheese, Fashion, Art, Movies, Architecture, A teeming night life, Sidewalk Coffee Cafes, Tree lined boulevards, French Cuisine, A boat ride on the river Seine (There exists a a belief that a kiss under an old bridge makes your wish come true.), the Eiffel Tower, Moulin Rouge & so  many to mention. For many, Paris is a dream destination, and for those that have visited this wonderful place, there is a yearning to go back 

The crisp air of incredible Paris is filled with Romance and Love. We have read stories and seen movies where young men and women, express words from their heart, for a life time commitment, in gay parie :) Though we don't experience snow here at the city of Chennai (Madras), a city so close to the equator, my heart always desired to do a snow tablescape. I'm glad I got an opportunity to do one for Cuisine Kathleen's Snow Winter Table Challenge. This scape is about a young man with a bouquet of flowers waiting near the Eiffel tower on a snow filled day to meet & propose to his beloved. 

It is a romantic table for two on a snow and love filled day in Paris. Hope you all like it....

  15. How did I miss this post??!?!?!? I missed your birthday!!! :-( :-( :-( I feel terrible!!! Happy Belated Birthday to you, dear Sujatha! And this post....so romantic!!!!!!! I have never been to Paris (or anywhere in Europe!), but I think about the romance of it. All the places you named would be so neat to see, and I would LOVE for my husband to kiss me under an old bridge so our wishes could come true! Your tablescape fits right in with the magic and romance of Paris! And the photo of you and your beloved.....SO SWEET!!!!!!! I hope you enjoy a wonderfully romantic and exciting Valentine's Day...and that you get kissed whether you're under a bridge or not! :-)
