Tablescape Thursday: Paris Themed

I am joining Susan for Tablescape Thursday at her site Between Naps on the Porch.  I have often heard that spring is the time to visit Paris.  I will probably never visit France but it is fun to go there for Tablescape Thursday.  

So, I packed my luggage and I set up my little table for two in France. 
You can't go to Paris and not visit the Eiffel Tower.  My children picked this souvenir up in France at Epcot in Walt Disney World.

The French take time to enjoy their meals.  So we will stay awhile and have an appetizer, small salad, and then the main course.  Sherbets from thrift store.
Salad Plate from TJMaxx.

French map plate made by 3-G Imports purchased at TJMaxx.

I have had these trunks awhile. Purchased at a discount retailer to decorate my living room.

The urn is used a lot in French and shabby decor.  I lined this with sheet moss and placed a silk fern in it.
Thanks for playing along for my travel themed table.  Please join Susan at her site to view all of the tablescape fun.

Such a lovely and clever table setting! I MUST find those France map plates for my son. He was a French major, and he and his bride-to-be are going to Paris for their honeymoon. He would adore those plates!

What a clever and pretty table! I especially like the map plates because they are the whimsical surprise element on your table. Thanks for sharing such a creative table.

Lovely and creative tablescape. I love love love those salad plates and they make my heart sing everytime I see them. But the blue are especially gorgeous. I have some Eifel towes too. We lived in Germany about 38 years ago
and we got to go to Paris, it was the thrill of a lifetime. You never expect to see what you saw in a Geography book, so I shall never forget it! Am glad you have such fun traveling in your imagination, that is a better choice these days!! lol
Again a lovely idea and tablescape, thanks for sharing it.
Blessings, Nellie

So funny that we both chose to do a French theme for TT - great minds... I love those map plates! The "trunks" are such a clever touch. I think you went to a much classier French restaurant than we did! laurie

Very cute! I love your French-themed "travel" table! I love those blue plates so much...I've looked at them many times at TJMaxx!
The map plates are very unique! I've never seen those before.
