Thousands of people are coming to Santa Rosa, CA, this weekend to taste wines from this famed region. My Parisian friend Francine and I have been at the annual Harvest Festival, showing our wares. The visitors come from everywhere in the USA and for many people it is the first time they have seen Provencal linens. It is a pleasure to share our love of these colorful tablecloths with so many new clients.
One of the things I love about the designs for these linens is that they integrate the flora and even some of the insect life that one finds in Provence. For instance our Menton green round tablecloth features a design motif with a bee motif, yes bees, as well as the iconic Mediterranean lemons. Of course at this time of year many people appreciate the olive motif, olives in all their glory. What a great way to set a table, with one of our linens, and a bottle of Sonoma County wine. Try the red zinfindels for instance, with a bowl of thymed olives and a wood plank of rosemary chevre cheese. Yum.
