How often are you fortunate enough to have dinner at someone's home in Paris?
Our daughter's good friends graciously invited us to their
elegant apartment in the 16th arrondissement.
The interior courtyard
It's difficult not to appear rude while snapping away photos for your blog...
OK, I might not ever be invited back, but...
John, above in the foreground, served us a Champagne aperitif, while his wife, Sue (can you see her hiding in the gilded mirror below?) prepared a delicious dinner.
Their home is filled with beautiful, French antiques.
Notice the Baccarat chandelier with white and red crystals.
According to their daughter, Jane, this was once a gas fixture.
Charming powder room.
Large formal dining room.
Our son surrounded by the mademoiselles: his aunt and sister and friends.
The dinner menu included a spinach salad, salmon en croute with tarragon sauce,
a cheese course and an apple tart with creme fraiche....AMAZING!
The kitchen window view.
Merci, Sue, John and Jane
for an unforgettable evening!
