A Lone Star Shines in Paris

Your dream dinner party setting is the Provençal countryside or an apartment in the 16th arrondissement.

But since you have to make do with your 1980s duplex, you need to call on Madame de la Maison. The brand new concept from Austin-reared Ajiri Aki was just covered by Vogue. Shop new and antique linens, tableware and one-of-a-kind oddities the Paris-based blogger and event stylist sources from European flea markets and rummage sales in her neighborhood - prices start at eight euros. Want to plan an event or wedding around one of her decor or tablescape ideas? She'll rent you an entire look you ship back when you're done. Ajiri has a serious fashion background - she worked at Women's Wear Daily, W and The Costume Institute at the Met, to name a few, and co-wrote the wildly popular Where's Karl? book that sends readers on a Waldo-style hunt for Mr. Lagerfeld. 

You've got this entertaining thing down ex-pat.
