Bon Voyage Fete!


A Bon Voyage party is easy and about nothing but fun!

Just a few snacks, or wine and cheese is enough of a send-off to be memorable.


A theme could be centered around the travel destination.


French bistro glasses, and Noritake china, Adagio.



A few savories in a vintage ironstone platter.


The travel themed centerpiece is a vintage globe set on a pedestal for interest.






A blank book for travel notes. Or for guests to write well wishes. Or both!



I've draped some interesting player piano music along my table for drama.

Travel themed cards to decorate the table, seat guests, offer as favors, or to wish the guests of honor a Bon Voyage!



Thank you so much for joining in!
Ciao! for now!

Jacqueline


I'm linking up with Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday!
