Table cloth by Beauvillé, plates and angels in Barbotine, water jugs from Vallauris, glasses by Jean Luce and Norman turned glass carafe

Fabienne de Seze is the good friend without whom you cannot live. Her profession is to organise weddings and balls but she used to work for Musée des Arts Décoratifs for many years, and created their wonderful shop which is still the best place to find presents in Paris. You can ask her any question, she will solve your problem. The best printer for invitations, the best light designer, the greatest caterers and butlers, florist, cushion maker, vintage car renter, she knows it all.  She has kindly made this Christmas table for Parisdiary and dares mixing orange and green, which is very festive.

In her 9 th arrondissement flat, she mixes contemporary art and classical furniture

The decorative trick is to use clementines as you would flowers and to find vintage glasses and fun carafes at the flea market. The table cloth comes from Beauvillé in Alsace, a famous manufacturer who have a vast choice of Christmas linen inspired by Hansel and Gretel, etc. and also a summer collection. Jugs are from Vallauris, the capital of ceramics near Cannes where Picasso used to work from 1948 onwards. He created 4 000 works there with the Madoura workshop. If you visit this little town you can see some of his works in the museum. Plates are in barbotine, ceramic slip, a special way of treating clay. Glasses are vintage mouth blown by Jean Luce (1895-1964), a glass designer who was most famous in the 1930’s.
