Entertaining: A Touch of French Antiques


Last spring, I had the pleasure of meeting Laurie of Elsie Green House & Home when she was selling her beautiful French wares at the Remodelista market. I immediately felt at home with the items she collected from markets throughout France – stunning monogrammed napkins, restaurant silver, bed linens of natural linen, and incredible rustic cutting boards. We decided for the holidays to have a gathering using her treasures. Nothing says December like having a table with delicious homemade desserts and greenery from the forest. I took a small wreath and placed it on the candlestick for an easy centerpiece. Lately, I’ve been loving a moody table and this one takes me back to my childhood during the holidays.


If you have a chance to visit Laurie of Elsie Green at her shop, I promise it won’t disappoint. I left with a huge basket filled with priceless goodies for my home as well as the homes of my clients. Stop by and see the jaw-dropping collection of French antiques and accessories. It’s definitely worth a journey – you’ll find things for yourself and gifts for friends and family. I would be thrilled to have anything in the store and I’m sure you would too.
