500: It’s a Celebration

July 3, 2012

It’s a celebration at Deux Maisons today! This is our 500th post, and we’re hosting a virtual soirée since we sadly can’t celebrate with you all. (Or each other, which is a double tragedy.) If you were coming over to our maison, you would be greeted with a cool cucumber cocktail. Then we would nosh on our favorite meal of all time, a decadent and seasonal cheese board. We’d finish with blackberry tarts to keep things light and refreshing!

Even though it’s scorching outside, at our dream party a nice breeze would keep things pleasant so we could jour in this lovely outdoor setting. The menu inspired the table decor – cucumber green and berry are slightly unexpected but still tres chic for summer. Ikat plates and the punchy fabric (for pillows or a table runner) add just the right amount of oomph to an otherwise natural table. Plus, we like to be on trend without being trendy.

See you at the soirée! Cheers!
