Hello my friends,
Today I have a confession to make. . .I love French Pastries!
In the famous words of Dorkus Lane, (from the BBC series, Larkrise to Candleford)…It’s my one weakness! If you’ve seen the show you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. If not, I suggest you watch it. It truly is a charming little series.
It’s not the decadent chocolate ones that tempt me so. . .but the white flaky & caramel ones.
Good thing I don’t have one very often.
I decided that I would give in to my temptation and decorate my family room mantle like a French Patisserie. I found this cute tray at T.J. Maxx for $5.99.
I’m happy to say-It’s now open for business!
This is the culprit that started the whole idea of a French Boulangerie (bakery). I bought it last summer on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $7.99. It was originally marked $39.99.
I had plenty of faux sweets to add to the display. They are the best kind. Pretty, but non fattening.
I placed a little metal heart pick to dance in front of it.
Plates have been gathered and are ready to be filled.
I love my found vintage spice jars. The perfect shade of pink!
I made the cupcake & doily garland last year after seeing one in a local shop.
A mini crystal chandelier adds to the French charm.
The sweet treats are priced right. I bought the French display frame from Décor Steals.
When I told my sister, Jeanne that I was going to make little signs she said, “Well, then you had better have some of them”(meaning the goodies). I think she may have been born with the same weakness. Hee-hee!
Looks like I am going to have to make a ‘SOLD OUT” sign to put up whenever she comes to visit. lol!
More sweets on the hearth. I bought the cute jar at target for half price, $12.00. It’s filled with white, milk, and dark chocolate.
Some of my vintage tagged items were placed in a new vignette.
How about you, do you have a weakness for French Pastries? If so, come on by. We’re open for business. Let’s just hope they won’t all be sold out!
