French country inspired events always hold that little bit of something special that I can never quite put my finger on. Perhaps it’s the worn linens, the casual approach to fabulous food or the sweet yet simple details, but this is one luncheon that I’m sad to have missed. It turns out, when you pair Valley & Co. with Dennis Wise great things are bound to ensue. And there’s lots more pretty right here in the gallery for you to peruse at will.


From Valley & CoInspiration comes from so many places. For us it can be journeys to bistros in our favorite French cities: namely Paris and Nice, a stroll in the park or a memorable visit to a quaint little shop or museum. We are constantly on the lookout for beautiful ideas that come from everyday activities or sights that can spark thoughts that in turn become creations for our client events or weddings, designs or magazine work.

We recently teamed up with a few of our favorite industry people to bring to life an effortless French countryside caf setting complete with chicken wire detailing, wooden cheese wheel accents, gorgeous whimsical thistle and textured Canadian scabiosa blooms, and an overall ambiance that screams lovely and easy. Easy like a Sunday afternoon perched at a bistro sipping a delicious cocktails and enjoying the sounds, scents and sights of France…
