So. It turns out I'd been waiting my whole life for someone to ask me how I'd ideally decorate the Embassy of France, and I can't thank Brightest Young Things and St~Germain for allowing me to not only answer that question with LACE TEEPEES, but for affording me to opportunity to make them a reality at Saturday night's Zou Bisou Bisou party.
While the day was long - three, twelve foot teepees do not raise themselves, my friends - the night was as DREAMY and as MAGICAL as my fingers were crossed that it would be, and the St~Germain cocktails tasted especially delicious inside a vintage lace tent (and under a chandelier of paper flowers). It is at this point I will tell you that Saturday was ALSO my husband's 31st birthday, and I assure you that many glasses were raised to him having spent the entirety of his Very Special Day helping create ENCHANTMENT on French soil. I truly cannot count the ways in which I have lucked out.
Please - head over to Brightest Young Things for a huge photo set (and lots of teepee pics) of the evening, and thank you again to BYT, St~Germain, and La Maison Française for their generosity, to Andrew Herndon and Mitchell West for their indispensable help day of, to the Flower-Fluffing Committee for helping make it all happen, and to Kat Bangs and Svetlana Legetic for lending legitimacy to my glitter + glue goings on. And hey, you - call me if you want one of these things for your backyard, k?
