April in PARIS apartment prep~

We're having a big party here tomorrow! Would you like to see some final touches in the apartment today? View from the entree' to the living room Purple tulip bunches here and there~ We are 'dancing' about April in PARIS here tomorrow~
Some of my favorite things are under the entree' bench. They don't have a prominent display space for tomorrow, but they're pretty enough that I don't have to stash them out of sight~
In the kitchen, a stack of heavy linen/European towels is ready. Chef Adam is prepping the menu today, I can't wait to see him (and Malia) tomorrow morning~
Plates hang in a basket under the wall cabinet~
More purple tulips - in the kitchen~
The French ribbons, rhinestone buckles, more - wait for company in one of the living room cabinets For the first time, the second bedroom and laundry will be open this year, too~

Today, we set up bistro-style vignettes for our guests, in the Atelier. We're opening The PORCH (lower level) for shopping all day Saturday 4/16, stop by if you're around. If you won't be at the event tomorrow, watch for photos of everything next week. A bientot~ TERESA
