Thanksgiving with a French Touch

Thanksgiving With A French Touch

With all our blessings this year - special  thanks is to my girlfriend Sue and the phenomenal trip she recently hosted to Paris. Here are a few highlights to I wanted to share:

This is a table setting for Kings and Queens literally! Baccarat has an amazing exhibit at the Petit Palais celebrating its 250 year heritage through January 4, 2015. It is a joy to see and if you are wanting a special gift there are many things on sale in the USA through their website. 

Here are some champagne flute sin the oldest Baccarat pattern. Harcout, which was created in 1841, which comes in black glass giving it a modern twist.

Thanks to the generous women in my office I am loving- My Paris Kitchen . The mustard chicken on the cover is to die for and easy to follow. It is great gift and the author, David Lebovitz, has a blog worth perusing before a trip to France.

Another great girlfriend and I had a memorable meal at Spring Restaurant in Paris. It was an amazing dinner and we both wanted this wine carafe, which is great for both wine and water.

If you want a slice of Paris for your walls, please see Sue Dumke’s fantastic larger than life Barbie photos. It is an Audrey Hepburn at the Paris Opera. This photograph was being auctioned for Unicef in Paris and is quite large and dramatic. To see more of her work go to or contact her for more on the Barbie series. I often use them in our interior projects and customize the size.

PDG wishes you, your family and friends a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!
-Bon Souiree
