Reality Shot Thursday - Parisien Tablescape

I couldn't resist sharing these photographs of the table
after our lunch on Tuesday at La Boheme in Monmartre.

John and I both chose an omelette with a side dish of French fries
 and Susan had her favourite salad
buffalo mozzarella, tomato and basil.

Not the most elegant of tablescapes I know but the people watching was fantastic!

Linking to Claudia's Reality Shot Thursday #3

and to Tablescape Thursday @ Between Naps On The Porch.


  1. I love it and think it must have been so much fun. xo Jenny

  2. Maggie, thank you for taking us along! People watching is the best part!

  3. I think the 'mess' after a great meal is the best kind of reality shot! Thanks so much for sharing it with us, Maggie. Oh, what I would give to be sitting in Paris people watching!


  4. The lunch sounded and looked lovely and the people watching fascinating, I'm sure. Have fun, I wish I were there! Ann

  5. A restaurant with tables outside, a delicious meal, and then the treat of fabulous people-watching - that's a great sort of reality!

  6. Wonderful shot...the food looks like it was SO good!!


  7. Maggie, Love your header. Your lunch sounds delicious and its always better when shared with special friends. People watching doesn't get any better than a table in Monmartre....
    Enjoy your fall.

  8. You must have enjoyed your time in Paris. Eating while people watching is a great way to enjoy the day.

  9. Now....there is a reality shot I can live with!

    Food messes don't count as clutter and 'life-run-a-muk' in my world! I love this setting!

  10. What a treat it must have been and I loved how people were watching.

  11. l would take any table, elegant of not, if I could be eating an omelette in Paris again!

    Love the realism here. The people enjoying the street life, so perfect in Paris, the little restaurant tables, and I bet every mouthful was delicious because the reality is there is nothing in France that tastes bad!

    Happy Reality Thursday Maggie dear.
