Table for Fifi and Guests...

TODAY... I hand my blog over to French speaking Kelly of DesignTies...
There is a translation feature in my sidebar for non-French speaking visitors... if you wish to know exactly what is said in this post... or just simply ENJOY the party...

Bonjour, et bienvenue!! Aujourd’hui, j’avais l’honneur de créer une table pour la belle Mademoiselle Fifi Flowers. Suivez-nous à la France…
Nous avons trouvé un maison à la campagne en Provence
…auprès des champs de lavande. Pouvez-vous scentir l’arôme des fleurs mauves??
Et voici, la table dans le jardinPour commencer, je mis une nappe St. Jean De Luz en jaune, orange, rouge, et blanche sur la table... Puis les vaisselles dans les mêmes couleurs que la nappe… avec les fleurs pour Fifi, bien sûr!!

Et un plat avec les rubans
Les services de couverts (fourchettes, cuillères, et couteaux) en argent et lucite…
Voulez-vous un Perrier avec un tranche du citron vert?
Et nous avons besoins les verres cristals pour la champagne!!
Il faut avoir les fleurs pour créer l’ambiance… aimez-vous les soucis francais en jaune brillante??
N’oublions-pas les bracelets “Champs Eysées”… peut-etre comme les ronds de serviettes
Fifi, il y a une place ici pour toi… Pour le petit repas, nous mangeons des baguettes
…et les croissants chauds avec beaucoup du beurre!! Les fromages Françaises…
…et une mousse de betterave et radis. La rose est très jolie, n’est-ce-pas??
Et enfin, nous irons a la crêperie pour le dessert

…les crêpes avec les bleuets, framboises, et fraisesJ’espère que vous avez aimé notre voyage à la Provence et notre petit repas Français dans le jardin avec Fifi :-)
Merci et au revoir!!

Good Morning,

What a lovely photo-journey. Loved the lavender.

It's been a very challenging week here at MaidenShade. Working through blog issues, thinking of possible posts - and rueing the fact I'm not visiting everyone. Please, don't forget about me; )

Today's post is on some basics of HTML just in case that is something you're interested in. It does come in handy for working in blog posts, webpages, and listings if you have a store.

DesignTies said...

Fifi, thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to be a guest poster for you :-) I hadn't written in French for ages, so that was a bit of a challenge!! But I had a lot of fun putting the pictures and the text together :-)

We'd love to have you write a guest post for our blog -- let us know if you're up for that :-)

What a lovely post, and how fun to see Kelly here. Beautiful job, Kelly!

I wish I remembered enough of the language (I took 2 yrs in college) to leave a comment in French, but I'm afraid I might accidentally say something I didn't quite intend. ;-)

Renae Moore said...

ooh la la....all so bea-ti=ful. Of course you know chocolate and champagne go so well together!
Lovely post.
