Bon Anniversaire cher Marquis!

Happy Birthday to the Marquis de Lafayette!!!

How old is the great benefactor of the American Revolution?  He was born at Chateau Chavaniac in South Central France on 6 Septembre 1757.  This year he would have fretted his 259th!

Marquis de Lafayette's theme table setting
We are celebrating his natal day this week on our porch. I set the table with the beautiful plates I bought in France at the time of the Bicentennial of the French Revolution.  My friends Mary Conseur and David Beglan, both great followers of history, especially French and American history, brought me these gorgeous red, white and blue flowers to use as a centerpiece.

If you are so inclined, you might want to scroll down, way down, in my Blog list to find the explanation of how we decorated our master bed chamber at our home after Lafayette’s natal bedroom at Chavaniac. John and I visited Chavaniac at the time of a complete renovation of their 100 rooms. Do check us out.


Come celebrate with us. Roll out the red carpet and remember how Lafayette helped America!

Huzzah!    Huzzah!     Huzzah!   Hooray for the red, white and blue and the bleu, blanc et rouge!
