Oops Lunch becomes Dinner Party...

Let me start this post with an apology... I know we were all supposed to get together for a late luncheon... soooo I am sorry that you are all in your daytime gowns... but truly... all of you are dressed AMAZING for a luncheon (6.5" x 8.25" painting is available)...
and are perfectly dressed for an outside Cannes party...

Everyone seems to be loving your look as you walk down the red carpet... does everyone like my red dress there in the middle... J'adore RED!!!Look at these tables... FAB!!! Love the use of screens and projected images... keep watching... I think some photos of YOU will flash on the screen too...Merci Wolfgang for making all the food... he loves to cater for Petunia...FUN mini hamburgers...
is that guacamole? gotta LOVE a variety of desserts... yummmmmmmmm...Oooh I almost forgot... Petunia receive an award earlier in the day...While wearing this dress... no that is not Petunia... that model was trying to capture a peek into the award ceremony... Petunia LOVED her dress better than her own and agreed to not have her arrest if she would give here that dress... I believe she was arrested anyway for being nude in public... and the dress was stunning on Petunia and was perfect for the evening event as well!

And I would like to personally thank Petunia for helping clear Fifi's name... she was kind enough to contact her friends of PAGE SIX...

PRESS RELEASE: Not only have I have known Fifi Flowers for years but she is my BFF. To the best of my knowledge, Fifi has never, I repeat never, stolen a painting let alone entertained the thought of stealing anything. Well, let me rephrase that. She MAY or MAY not have stolen a picture or two to paint but to steal an old dead man's work when hers is obviously so much better? I am sure the insanity of that is clear to all. Until this unfortunate event is resolved, she and I will be doing a Polanski, that is enjoying a bit of rest and relaxation somewhere fabulous in France. It would be a terrible shame for America to lose one of its finest artists to France but be that as it may, these thoughtless accusations have brought us to this. Please feel free to send Fifi all your letters of apologizes to my representatives. They have been instructed to forward all relevant correspondence. I do send my best and condolences to Matisse's family if anything I have said here is upsetting to them. I am sure they are still feeling his loss after all these years.I would like to thank all those who, on a daily basis, want to know about me and my life. Your support during our time in exile will make it all the more lovely for both Fifi and I.

Sincerely, Petunia

Dearest Fifi:

What a mess with that dress! What a rat of a girl!

I was enjoying a long relaxing soak in the lovely tub in my wing of the villa as I prepared for my long day of people seeing me when I heard odd sounds of “ooos and ahhs” coming from the dressing room just off my bath. I, quietly as a cat, slipped from the tub and into a robe and went to investigate. As I peered around the corner, there she was! Her unmanicured little hands were caressing my clothes! She even had one of my many crowns on her head! Oh, Fifi! I was horrified one moment then mad enough to kick a cat the next then quite afraid for my very life! As I ran to find my Bling Berry, to call the police, she realized she had been discovered and fled with my gown! Of course I had other lovely pieces to wear to my award ceremony and to your party and of course I could not disappoint all who wanted and expected to see me so I carried on like a trouper and set out to make my appearances. As my stretch approached the sidewalk at the end of your red carpet, I saw that horrid little woman running down the sidewalk in MY dress! All senses left my mind as I leaped from the car and a fabulously movie'-like chase ensued! I felt so alive and dangerous and damn determined! That little rat sure can run! But of course it was going to end badly for her. I pulled her down off the wall she stopped to peak over and took back my dress. Then I called the police and told them a crazy naked woman was stalking your lovely event and it would be best for all of Cannes that she be locked up. The officers were all so kind and helpful and almost spell bound when they realized I was the victim. They begged me not to leave their fair city and to continue my escape in their midst. Of course, I told them I would not be leaving because I was there to protect you although I did not tell them the exact circumstances of our arrival! I believe we will have a bit of extra protection provided by some wildly attractive Frenchmen while we are here. I have also received a missive informing me that the girl was sent to Elba for a bit of a vacation. The French are very good at sending their rats into exile!

Once I was dressed and that little inconvenience addressed, I rushed back to your lovely party. Oh, Fifi! The evening was perfect and my dear Wolfgang prepared all my favorites! He was so trilled to see me and to meet you! Of course he knows all about you and of your work. He has even offered to make a few calls on your behalf. He is such a love! I may or may not have told him not to rush to the phone as we need some quality BFF time together and that we hadn't even begun to shop! When we are set to leave, he will ring up all the necessary people and provide character witness type information. Oh, dear, I meant references! You are not on trial so, no witnesses are needed yet. I told him to make sure he was talking about you! My character references can be a bit dicey at times.

Fifi, did your see that award I was given? Oh, what a hoot! What great fun!

Sincerely,
Petunia who had to choke back a few giggles as she was handed The Proper Lady of the Year award.

Love the picture at the top. It reminds me of the promotional piece that Juicy-Coutour??? put out when they launched their fragrance a few years back. I tore the page out of a magazine because I adored the colors of all the dresses.
Great post Fifi, love it all.
Hugs,
Sue

Laura in Paris said...

Oh, I cannot make up my mind for the painting I asked you to do! Both sketches are great!
But it seems the rest of the family finds the first one (with more decor and less Tao) their favorite! So we'll go for that one!

Jacqueline said...

Oh Fifi, didn't we all have such fun...and, when Petunia finally got her dress back and normal sevice was resumed, she has never looked lovlier.
What a spead that Wolfgang prepared...how wonderful to have a friend like him...an absolute necessary asset, methinks !!!!
Petunia must have been preening when she received her award.....there will not be a chateau or 5 star Hotel that won't be all over you both, after this.Enjoy your shopping with your BFF and make the most of your time there.... Au revoir,mon ami Fifi. XXX
