Gala in Venice...

I arrived in Venice... Petunia suggested we arrive seperately to shake the FBI...to find that Petunia had found us a PALAZZO to stay in... she is truly AMAZING... look at this place... it is PERFECT for a Masquerade Ball...and she made sure there was a private back entrance(painting available in My Etsy Shop)... I quickly slipped in to find...this table filled with delights... love the view...
The caterer delivered all these yummies for the party tonight... of course I had to taste them... I wanted all of you to be happy with the food...and last dessert... and time to check on the party decor and settings... BEAUTIFUL... Cocktails and appetizers in the foyer...Dining tables for a lovely feast...Here come the guests... ooooh my... they are really into this masked ball...

A little entertainment...

Ooooh that was soooo much work... but oooooh soooo much FUN...

I hope you had a WONDERFUL time at the party!!! I see a lovely place to lay my head... ooh I'm not sure if I could possibly have one more drop of champagne...

Now off you go... see what PETUNIA was doing today... of course you all know she was at the ball... her dress was marvelous wasn't it... ooooh I know she has a story to tell about this FAB day... so you must visit her and then on to all the other FANTASTIC Tablescape Thursday participants over at Between Naps on the Porch... ENJOY!

Anddddddddddddd tomorrow we are in for a FASHIONABLE TREAT... Mr. Lagerfeld has put together something you will NOT want to miss... Ciao mon amis!

Dearest Fifi:

What fun it is fleeing with you! And Venice...they are so fortunate that we thought to come here, aren't they Fifi? Your party was just divine! Marzio and I had a simply lovely time. Did he not look simply edible in his carnaval costume?

Sincerely,
Petunia who thinks she heard some of the Venicians soeaking French!

Great you're having a fantastic virtual time in Italy! Venice is my favourite place of all and I think you should transform your virtual trip into a real one! You would find so many inspirations for your beautiful paintings!!! Ciao. Antonella

You and Petunia make me long for a return trip to Italy. Hope the economy improves before Hubby and I are too old and infirm! Venice is an absolute favorite. Think I would love to rent a place and just stay awhile.

OOOH, Venice looks so exciting! I've always been a little afraid of those full face masks, but I love the ones that just cover the eyes...so intriguing! Can't wait to see where else you will go.

Beverly said...

Between all of the champagne and wearing my mask, I'm afraid I have a bit of a headache. I might need a nap, too. ;-)

niartist said...

LOL! I need a nap! What a whirlwind tour - oh, so gorgeous. Call me next time you go, eh?!

Oh Fifi; you created the most perfect scenario. Only wish it were true!
I adore Venice & have not visited (gulp) since 1975. Thanks for the memorable journey my dear.

I've been to Venice once, and only for a day. And it was a COLD damp day. I think I need to go back. JUST to see what it looks like in the sun. I mean, that's only fair, right?
