“My Fantasy Dinner Party”

FullSizeRender

I would invite Elsie de Wolfe, Lady Mendl with her little doggie Blu.

her talented protege Tony Duquette and his beautiful wife Beegle Duquette.

His talented protege Hutton Wilkinson and his lovely wife, Ruth

The legendary decorator Billy Haines.

The delightful author and friend of Elsie’s, Ludwig  Bemelmans.

The Duke and Duchess of Windsor!

It will be at the Villa Trianon Elsie’s divine house in Versailles!

Now google all these people and see who they are  (or were!)

      I HAD TO GIVE ELSIE THE FIRST CRACK AT THE DOGS! SHE NAMED ALL OF HER LITTLE POODLES THE SAME NAME….AND THEIR LITTLE GRAVESTONES SAID THE SAME THING! “THE ONE I LOVED THE BEST”! I LOVE IT!

    Oh goodness, you have an elegant group gathered, my love !!
    Of course, you do. I would love to be there, but it would take me a week to decide what to wear amongst this group. So arty, so interesting and so creative.

    What a splendid array of guests ….. and perhaps the dogs could have their own special table and food !!
    It’s always good to have an eclectic mix of people at one’s table isn’t it ….. if only it could really happen !!
    Have a lovely week. XXXX
