A flock of witty French pigeons discuss the menu.
Olive Tapanade for an appetizer
plump green and dark olives
fragrant rosemary, sage and thyme.
pork roasted crusty brown with fennel and garlic.
The pure alchemy of crème brûlée’
witty pigeon place cards.
Place cards for fun.
To amuse especially the youngest guest at dinner.
I down-loaded this charming idea from countryliving.com/pigeoncards. Printed them on coloured cardstock to compliment my French plates.
I thought these birds are so sweet I’ll trace them onto patterned cardstock (found at a craft store) to match these plates.
For an all white theme I traced the sweet birds onto pages from an old book then distressed the edges a little.
How easy is this. Your pattern and a bone folder (or soup spoon) and one can create their own flock of pigeon place cards.
