        ♥  Remember to design your table setting as artfully as they would in France. Complete the style with table linens, cloth napkins and an array of cutlery and glassware suitable for each course you will serve. Integrate a tasteful centerpiece and the soft glow of candlelight to highlight your creativity. (Shop our complete Valentine’s Day Gift Shop here.)

        ♥  For your tablecloth, we suggest our hand-printed Jardin Tablecloth in Red/Grey inspired by the lush, loosely-tended gardens of Southern France.

Reminiscent of old-world France and evoke a true sense of nostalgia for leisure and luxury. Chunky Red Linen Napkins
