French Country Birthday party and the Country Living Vintage collection from Kmart !


For Hubby's Birthday, i planed a French Country Birthday party.
The linens are from the Country living Vintage classic collection  at Kmart. I fell in love with the French red toile inspiration and the roosters.
I want the whole collection....it is that pretty !


Here is the dining room before and then After.


I used my black and beige Gingham classic French Country cloth in the middle.
Love the ruffle on the red Country living table cloth !


The Glasses and the carafe also from the same collection. 




I made a roti de pork en croute



Steamed potatoes and veggies.


A crepes cake
Gateau de crepes


Happy Birthday Love !!


The clothes i got for hubby are from Kmart and i have to say....I love them !!








I was wearing this outfit ...Nautical style for spring







Happy Valentine's day !

Oh, my what a wonderful celebration. Thanks ahead of time for the recipes to come...it is like you knew I was going to ask for them. Happy Birthday to your hubby....He is very well cared for, that is obvious. Too bad we do not have a Kmart in Waco...I will just have to enjoy their goodies through you. Happy Valentine's Day dear Frenchy!

I love toile and that tablecloth is so pretty. Sadly, there is no K-mart close to me anymore, so if I do go, it's in another town. However, they always have such pretty home decorating things.

Happy belated birthday to your husband. Looks like you had a great celebration!

Frenchy said...

If you don't have a Kmart. Check online. I have seen great deal son their site. You can't go wrong also with a tablecloth...It will fit LOL.
And yes, i approve of any French diner Lisa LOL

Such a lovely table for hubby's special day. The tablecloth is beautiful. I am going to check that out. Do they have rooster dishes. I need roosters. I am probably the one person in blogland without roosters. LOL
The crepe cake looks so delicious. The little ones are beautiful just like their mama. Hugs, Ginger

How did I miss this??? I love it!!! Happy Belated Birthday, too!! My Birthday is in a few weeks. I must ask for a gâteau de crêpes for my cake! Did you use Nutella filling? That is my favorite! Maybe with some sliced banana! MMMMM.....

Little Miss Maggie said...

I am on my way to Kmart. Fabulous. I love red toile and this is incredible. Thanks for the source of these beautiful things.

Very nice!

My daughter loves these, and she can eat them because they have no gluten. I will have to try your recipe.

I've made my own oat flour and almond flour by just grinding it up in the food processor.

But not too much time in the food processor for almonds.
