Parisian Dinner Party Decor (Amazon Prime It!)

Parisian Dinner Party Decor (Amazon Prime It!)

This recipe is part of a series about throwing a dinner party like a Parisian

By the time I decided to throw a French dinner party for Mother's Day, I had about 5 days to prepare everything. I didn't want to spend an exorbitant amount of money, and I was tight on time to run around. Enter: Amazon Prime. I ordered a few items that really added a Parisian pizazz to my party, simply, affordably and efficiently. 

For the flowers, I used a vintage blue Ball jar, a french mini-bucket, and some other small vases I had around the house. My main colors were purple, blue and yellow. I also purchased some lavender and placed it in a cheap silver bucket for a rustic feel! 

My kitchen table is beautiful wood, so I didn't want to completely mask it with a tablecloth. Instead, I chose a rustic striped table runner.

My plates are from Canvas Home, and the cutlery is Villeroy & Boch. I didn't have any chamapgne coupes (only very tall flutes), so I ordered these:

I also bought simple linen napkins, which I felt really complemented the linen runner. Even if you have cloth napkins, be sure to have paper napkins around. Somehow, people always ask for them! 

And there you have it! The special, last-minute purchases that made my dinner party feel tres Francais! Do you have recommendations for other items that would enhance the evening? Share your thoughts below!
