It was another magical afternoon at
Laguna Beach home
French Food Camp!
Which has turned into such highly anticipated events!
If you ever get an opportunity to attend
these afternoons are on the top of my
So Cal must do lists!
Visiting the French Basketeer in Laguna Beach
of course always calls for a fabulous ensemble!
So it was the perfect opportunity
to take my vintage kimono out for the afternoon!
I paired it with my vintage Yves Saint Laurent lace blouse
over two layered ball skirts
tied with my tasseled belt.
I finished the outfit with a brand new succulent crown.
The table at Andrea's French Food Camp
was set once again by the fabulous
I was fan grilling all over her tabletop once again!
Mary had organic heirloom roses flown in from Northern California
intermixed with dogwood branches and grapevines.
Which were the perfect accompaniment for
the drool worthy
Astierdevillatte dishes and glassware
which can be bought though Q Strret.
I am definitely making my starter list of pieces to collect!
I sat there for the longest time
just taking in here masterful tabletop composition.
Everything Mary does is pure artistry!
Including this utterly chic wrapped gift she had for me!
Every detail was done so perfectly
right down to the silver wax stamp on the back of the envelope!
It was almost too gorgeous to open!
But I did open it
to find these absolutely stunning linens inside!
They will most definitely be making into the decor
of my daughter's upcoming wedding in May!
Thank you ever so much dearest Mary!
Besides the most perfectly adorned table
the French Baskeer
once again brought her always A+ hostess game!
This time there was champagne tasting all afternoon!
And just look at this cheese spread!
The coffee station with
the spring sunshine streaming in!
After lunch there were birthdays to be celebrated in
French Basketeer fashion!
Which means not only cakes with the most amazing candles …
But a violin serenade as well!
Isn't Andrea an off the charts hostess!
Not only that
she is able to gather the most Amazing Guests!
So as I said before …
If you ever get a chance to attend
You will be so glad you did!
If you want to see more of Andrea's
fabulous gatherings you can go
I have been recording each one of the magical events!
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
