Comptoir de Famille's Brasserie du Square dinnerware is a great basic set of dishes. Simple but very french we keep it continually stocked at the store. Coupled with Comptoir's elegant silverware and coordinating placemats and napkins you have a complete bistro place setting!
If I were to give a french themed dinner party I would incorporate vintage french postcards. Little notes or memories about each guest could be penned on the back making a personal keepsake .
Centerpieces don't always need to be floral. It can be a good way to
showcase additional pieces of your dishware.
