In A French Frenzy Part 3

As I have written before, I am in a French frenzy organizing everything for our French dinner on Friday.

We are going to put crepe paper on the table as a table cloth. We are laying it out so that it looks like a French flag - blue, white and red.

We made a big model Eiffel Tower for the centre of the table. Nancy is going put some flowers around it for decoration.

We made some little French flags to stick in little pieces of Nougat, which comes from France. We just cut them about two centimeters thick and stuck a toothpick flag in it and used it as a table setting ! That was my Mom's clever idea!

The Eiffel Tower we were making was a real challenge! It just wouldn't stick! I eventually used sticky tape to stick in the inside!

We gave Gabrielle some blue paint and paper and let her paint to keep her quiet and to make her feel like she is part of the whole thing.
