lovely little painting, and the periwinkle blue chairs look so inviting.

Dearest Fifi:

I simply do not understand raw food. Shouldn't fish be cooked a bit more than just burned on the outside? Obviously I could not live one single day on that raw diet everyone is talking about but, Fifi, the crab and shrimp were both divine as was the little tart so I was able to find something to counteract all the delicious bubbly!

And another thought, Fifi. How does one gracefully get out of those pretty porch chairs without flashing their Naughty Janets? I did master the hammock, however. One good wing of it and Violet went flying. I was able to have a dreamy rejunvenating nap swinging softly in the breeze! So lovely, indeed.

I had a truly delightful and relaxing day. Did I mention how perfect your table was set? Oh, Fifi, the table is the heart of every party and yours, as always, was the picture of perfection!

Sincerely,

Petunia who will never forget the look of surprise on Violet's face as she flew through the air with the greatest of ease.

Oh Fifi...your painting is c'est jolie! Luv it! I wish I can have you paint my tablescape today because your art is truly just my style.

Violet said...

Fifi this is another great day with all the great "fifiness" you provide. Although, everything you had to offer, even the raw fish, I must tell you that Petunia does not know how to wait for her turn.

She literraly swung me off the hammock and mocked me the whole time she spent on it. Not a good play mate at all!

Petunia should be banned from all future events!

Paris Atelier said...

Renae said...

Fifi,
I have been so busy working these past days that I missed your delightful party today....you know how I love love love champagne and I would have eaten Petunia's Ahi Tuna, it is my very fave. The crab and shrimp looked scrumptious as well and that avacado tuna tini...I must try sometime. Since I am watching my girlish figure I am happy that I didn't have to feel bad admiring the chocolate from afar...drooling now...as always, you have the most magnificent parties. I simply cannot wait until the next one.

On a more "serious" note, you must paint in your sleep, there is always just the perfect illustration for your work!

Blessings...

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...
