Summer may not officially have started yet,



but here at FrenchGardenHouse our summer entertaining season has begun.




Entertaining outdoors is easy, carefree




and should be beautiful!






On our last buying trip, one of the things I was searching for



were new, traditional Provencal French linens that are actually made in France.




I’m excited about the gorgeous line of traditional French linens




I found for all of us – made by a family mill in Nice, France.





You love French Country colors and the ease of washable cotton tablecloths.



These provencal cotton tablecloths are just right



for summer, but really any time of year.







I can’t choose a favorite, this one with the citrus design is



such a fresh look for summer.



Named after the town of Menton in France, where they have a citrus festival each summer.





Blue and white is a perennial favorite too.




{Bentley likes this one!}






Golden Yellow with Blue and flowers – takes you right into the flower fields of Provence.







These are heavier jacquard woven table throws,



thick enough to use as a throw on your bed, or to snuggle under on a starlit evening.







 There are a few more designs that I just couldn’t leave out



of this summer collection.



Visit our FrenchGardenHouse shop to see all of our gorgeous linens



that are the perfect addition to any dinner party.










While I was primarily looking for tablecloths,



I gathered up a selection of French drying towels too.




You can never have too many of those, non?









Shop like the French do.



It’s okay if everyone thinks you picked up these linens



in a shop in Cote d’Azur.  I won’t tell.

  1. Lidy these are beautiful linens. You gather such gorgeous pieces for your shop. Must be fun on the buying trips. Sure exhausting too


    1. Cindy, it IS fun!! Sometimes a little crazy and tiring, but always a joy to find pieces of history, and to re-connect with friends {dealers} who love them. Wishing you a beautiful day!

  2. So beautiful! These are perfect for outside in the summer, but also inside later in the year. Thank you for sharing them with us.

  3. I’ve always loved the Provencal signature colors and in these linens, they are gorgeous!!


  4. Those are all so beautiful. I am more lowcountry and coastal, but that doesn’t mean any of those wouldn’t mix with my style. What a lovely addition to my linens these would make!

  5. Lidy, the linens are lovely. And, I try and try to pull Bentley through my screen and he will not fit. I love him, and I think he should have a scarf that matches the linens.

    1. Sandra, you are so sweet. I think Bentley should have a scarf that matches the linens too…but silly him, he’s not at all interested in being fashionable and wiggles around and tries to remove any kind of “decoration” around his neck!

    Hi Lidy, I saw the Avignon Lavender throw and waited too long to order. I’m wondering if there is any chance you will have this is stock again as I would like to have one.
    Thank You,
