2. Does Mom still regret not buying that beautiful tablecloth she saw in the outdoor market in Provence? Surprise her with this Clos des Oliviers 71-Inc Round French Cotton Tablecloth.

Simple and elegant French cotton tablecloth. Beautiful for outdoor dining in spring and summer.

  • Hi Wini!

    What a wonderful collection of French Mother’s Day brunch recipes and gift ideas. Everything looks so yummy. Thanks for including my photo of your delicious spinach quiche. Next, I want to try baked eggs, something I’ve never made. Discovering that I could cook from your wonderful Bonne Femme Cookbook while living as a lifetime Weight Watcher has been a revelation 🙂

      So nice to hear from you, Martha. I just love that photo! The baked eggs will be a revelation! They’re so easy, but so incredibly good. They’re a weekend lunch standby at my house.

      Thanks again for your nice note.
