de Gournay

This gorgeous wallcovering by de Gournay features a fig tree in a blue and white cachepot. I love figs and have a favorite recipe with figs to share that is great for entertaining. It is wonderful with Champagne. 

Crostini with Goat Cheese & Fig Preserves

Cut a baguette on the bias into about 20 1/2 inch slices. 

Brush with olive oil and bake at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes.

Let cool and spread with goat cheese and then top with fig jam/preserves.

How that's for easy?

I often use Bonne Maman Fig Preserves easily found at most grocery stores.

Saturday is the first day of fall and it is feeling like autumn here - the highs will just be in the eighties!


  1. Love this wallpaper, love figs & I confess to even loving Fig Newtons!😊

    1. Love Fig Newtons! And thanks for the crostini recipe, Beth. I’m putting it in my Holiday planning book. Cheers!

  2. great with Brie or camembert ... also with foie gras!

  3. We have a fig tree, and I do lots of things with the figs, if I can keep my husband from eating them all right off the tree! A great appetizer is a ripe fig, stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in a little piece of mostly cooked bacon. Run it under the broiler till the bacon is brown and sizzling, and served immediately on little plates with a cocktail fork. You can also put this on a little bit of toasted baguette like a crostini if you prefer.
