Parisian Rendezvous

Last night I hosted my 6th house party! My theme was Paris.

Damask and hot pink set the theme.

The food consisted of a variety of quiche, tomatoes and goat cheese drizzled with olive oil & balsamic vinegar, cheese & crackers with grapes, cantaloupe wrapped in prosciutto, and cream puffs.

Pink roses and feathers were perfect for my table setting. I typed up Eiffel Tower and France "fun facts!" It was great for conversation.

I found these CUTE damask tin cans at Michaels for only $1! I bought all of them. Filled with candy they made the perfect party favor.

The fun continued at the bar. Wine and "Cham Chams" were served. The cham chams were DELICIOUS! It was 1TBS of Chambord, 2 fresh raspberries, and topped off with champagne. They paired perfectly with dark chocolate. Stealing Jonathan's line, "It was something special!" Boas and white feathers added flirty details.

Watch for next months party. "Chick Flick & Chocolate Night."
