My Best Friend Lisa's Paris Birthday

My best friend Lisa is celebrating her birthday this month. She lives in San Diego I live in Seattle. I couldn't buy her anything that would mean enough to her for my value in her friendship so I decided to give her Paris for her birthday.

We aren't really going to Paris who could afford that but I wanted to give her something she could visualize and just for a few moments pretend we are there.My goal is to take her shopping for some bling like fancy shoes.

We'll stop and have cake and icecream at a little Bistro

Or maybe she might like some Bon Bons and little desserts instead

Chocolate oolala

We'll go site seeing all over the city and giggle like young girls at all we see.

then off to a fine dinner where crystal and linens will set the table 

We'll have a nice cup of tea as we reminence about our busy day

Our own tea service will be sitting at our table to use

We'll splurge on fancy cake it is her birthday and we aren't counting calories today

Because this is her day she will be honored with Birthday napkin rings to help her make her feel like Queen for a day.

Ooh what a fine table this restaurant pulled together for her.
We even have crystal sugar and creamer and water glasses.Oh yes we're styling now my Lisa and I.

We have views of the Eifflel Tower while we eat ohh such Loveliness as we dine

Lisa bought these shiny blingy shoes she does love to shop me I wanted the dishes instead.

we are going to have candlelight pretty soon.Oh waiter would you please light our candles. Paris by candlelight every girls dream night.

And please refill our teapot we have run dry

Well our day must come to a close

But we will treasure our time together while in Paris even if was only a day.

A little treasure to take home for our day a cookie cutter would probably be the only thing either of us could ever afford in Paris.

Well Happy Birthday my Dear friend .I hope you have a wonderful day. I know its not the real thing but my heart is in it for you. thank you for all you do in my life.Celebrate Lisa she is a true gem on this earth.See I even remembered to buy you flowers. Have a great day my friend .Love Susie

  4. What a treat you created for her! Love the linens - they set the mood. I bought those plates for my daughter when she got married, and I think they are some of the prettiest Paris plates I have ever seen! Looks like it was a wonderful birthday gift - so thoughtful!

    1. Jacqueline thank you for commenting compared to your tables mine is nothing. she is my dearest friend and I wish I could have really done something for her.I love these Paris plates but my Home Goods had only two and I grabbed them up.The good thing is she really enjoyed this.Susie
