 Use your imagination in decorating a dinning room table like those at the time of Monet in Giverny. Use this book as a guide to your presentation. There are many photos of Monet’s table. Blue and white china, salt sellers, low blue and white flowers and a white tablecloth would present a table at the time of Monet.  Use copper pots and put on a CD of music by Debussy. Arrange Monet paintings on the wall and be sure to toss in  some French phrases in your conversation.
