La Joie de Vivre Shopping in Paris

by Weekend In Paris

DSC_0736For me, living well must include travel, and thus incorporating elements from my trips into everyday life. Souvenirs can be edible, artistic or useful. Walking around near Saint Sulpician, I stumbled upon la Joie de Vivre shop on rue de Seine in the 6th arrondissement. Here’s what I found of interest…

Fabrics and Linens

Traditional flower patterns and contemporary Ikat dye designs are their specialty. Cotton table clothes with matching napkins are at reasonable prices.

Hostess gifts and personal indulgences

100% vegetable candles in typical French fragrances like rose and orange blossom are accompanied by interesting options like winter evening and green tea.

Bordeaux or Burgundy, wine accessories for all

Wine enthusiasts will love the clever faux mini Merlot bottle that opens in half to reveal a bar set including a bottle opener, a bottle collar, and a pourer.

Accents for every table

French pottery in earth tones is perfect for fall table décor. In addition, add a red and taupe wine themed table runner or napkins for a pop of color.
