Valentine Tea and Cosmos...

I'm backkkkkkkkkk... on Tablescape Thursday... I'm thrilled I was accepted by all the FAB "TT girls" last week... so I just had to play along today! Soooooo... I thought I would put together a little tea for everyone still in my Paris apartment and those of you just popping over to Paris today...

As you can see I have tea and cosmos ( I'm not a tea drinker... but I love tea parties) and littles heart-shaped finger sandwiches... along with two incredible heart-shaped desserts...Now... here are some MORE inspiring TABLESCAPES around Paris that I would love to paint... what shall I paint... hmmmm... which one is your favorite...

La Rotonde...
Montmartre Doodles...
Parisian Kissing...
Cafe Creme...
Latin Quarter Dining...Now that you have sampled sweet treats and warm tea or a delightful cosmo (that would be my choice) and toured my collection of Paris Cafe Tables... time to visit all the Tablescape Thursday contributors... and see all the WONDERFUL tables they've put together!
My painting is available via My Etsy Store and it is available as a set of frameable notecards!

Wrapping Up the Week: Friday I will be making a confession... and on PINK Saturday... a romantic getaway... it will be the perfect place to ENJOY a little romance!
Photos are via Google Image search for Paris Cafe Tables and French desserts

Hi FiFi!!! Luv your post, make mine a cosmo too! That would be so sweet to paint La Rotonde!!! CHEERS! Michele

Frau said...

FiFi I love Cosmos, my pick is the french kissing I like that would make a lovely painting!

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

Love your painting. Makes me want to come to tea. :))
I like all the photos you have up to pick from, but I like the one with the blue bottle on the table. My first thought was the pink umbrellas but the blue bottle calls to me. :)
Looking forward to Friday and Saturday.

A heart shaped Napoleon and a cosmo? Consider me at your party! I do hope my crown doesn't make me look over dressed. I hate when that happens. Paint La Rotonde! I can just see your tea party taking place there under those lovely pink umbrellas.

I love a little confession and I love Fridays so it will be another fun day around here! Can't wait!

Joyce said...

Oh I am so there with you on the high cosmo time! Great pictures, I like the one of the kissing couple and the dog looking up at them!

Have a cosmo of a day and make it a golden one! xoxo

Loved Sheila's post dear Fifi - what a great gal she is! That blue water bottle on the small table is captivating. I so wish the Saeco gods would smile on me & send one of their stupendous coffee machines my way - it would make me a better person, promise!

LdyDy Loves Cake said...

Hi Fifi! My first time to your blog. I like your paintings and what caught my eye was the day spa in Old town Monrovia! I practically lived on that street visiting all the shops and dropping in to eat somewhere along the way! I am several miles east of there now...but now and again I visit. I love many things French..I even am attempting to learn the language...keyword attempting!! You are very talented...I'll be back to visit more often!

Callie Grayson said...

love that painting of the tea! I am always up for tea:)

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

I think the French Quarter is my favorite, but I also like the first one, and that dog looking up at the French kissers is just too cute!! Do 'em all!!

You are really good!

Katherine
