Any excuse for a party, right? Especially in summer when you can set everthing up in the garden or the park. I am partial to the paper pompoms floating above the table (and would keep them for further use indoors). Have you ever had a party in a public park? We've had our fair share of them. One year we went out to Parc de Sceaux with all our goodies in tow (including champagne, of course!) to eat under the cherry blossoms.
