    I don’t even have to taste anything…your table is an indulgence in and of itself! I love those Paris plates, and the napkins are splendid! Does your friend share her silhouette patterns? Those scrolly utensils are so YOU! (But, I would love them, too. 😉 ) Your plate stack ribbon detail is so pretty.

    • thanks Kim, Michelle does a lot of crafts for friends and home shows, not sure what you meant by does she share? She would be happy to make anything you’d like~ just shoot me a private email if you’re interested in communicating with her~ thanks so much for the kind words!
