Dreaming of a Paris Luncheon

I have the dining table set with a fun Paris theme for a ladies luncheon.  
For the table cloth,  I used a cream and black Paris themed fabric....the table runner is a sheer pink fabric with little satin bows tied on it.
 The place setting at the "head" of the table is a cute ladies high heel shoe plate,  a vintage thumb print pale pink goblet,  an Eifel tower cologne bottle,  an Eifel tower coffee cup,  and I used a small hand painted tray as a "rest" for the silver fork. 

I have an assortment of "lady' things scattered around the table for my guests amusement.....
Try a little spray of cologne???

There's a perfume bottle on each side of the table....
I have a display of  bracelets for my guests to have fun trying them on......
I have rings scattered around the table for the ladies to "play" with.....
The center piece is very simple.....round French boxes with an assortment of cologne on the top.....feel free to try on as much as you would like ladies!

Here is the setting at the other "head" of the has a leaning tower coffee cup and a small bouquet of roses.... 
The other four setting are pretty much alike......a large white ironstone plate as the shoe plate.... an aqua "Lite Bite" chandy plate for the salads....the silver fork is resting on a vintage glove.... a large crocheted piece is the place mat...and by the pink tea glass is a small ring holder with some fun rings to try on.

Lunch will be an assortment of finger foods, vegetable and fruit trays,  and a large dessert plate.....I will need to serve it buffet style on the kitchen island,  as the luncheon table is too full of fun stuff to serve food!
I hope the ladies will enjoy my "Dreaming of Paris" luncheon!
