Celebration at Versailles...

Bonjour everyone! I am just filling in for Fifi for the moment for she is on route to Versailles via carriage. Shhh….we must be very quite before she gets here…A BIG surprise awaits…In the mean time I am here also…in LOVELY Versailles presenting this mural to someone special… A big party surrounds it…lol

Versailles is getting set up for the BIGGEST party of the YEAR! The Fountains are being turned on.
Everyone starts to arrive wearing their BEST FROCK…

The crowds are enormous! We are all waiting with anticipation…Where is she?...Can you see her yet?

Then the toast of honor arrives in the most beautiful carriage all dressed up. The doors open and she steps out…Everyone is waiting to yell… “CONGRATULATIONS FIFI!!!”

All these people came from vast distances, across HUGE ponds, via boats, planes and YES, even stolen cars (hehe) to Versailles to celebrate Fifi’s Blogging Birthday. We are all holding up our champagne glasses to toast Fifi on a MARVELOUS job done so BEAUTIFULLY!!! Petunia steps up to Fifi. Champagne flute in hand and begins her TOAST. She says”

Dearest Fifi:

It is hard to believe it has been a whole year that you have been sharing your FABulous self and paintings with the entire world! Of course, I have known you for so many years and it does please me to pieces that the rest of the world loves you and your ability to channel Matisse in the way you do just as much as I do. I'm sure Henri is pleased as well. You have shared lovely parties in your pink Paris apartment with us, amazing jaunts off to FUN places, crème cafe and croissants in cozy cafes and at the end of each one, you have blessed us with a painting of our getaways! You are truly an angel other than that thieving thing you are driven to do. OH and speaking of driving, the best theft yet is, of course, the little pink Fifi car! You have made me laugh and smile and your lovely art work which hangs in my sun room where I do confess to looking my best, beautifies my life and world every single day. Is it not just incredible that we are BFFs, Fifi? Of course it is! And so, on this very historic event, one that will be marked on calendars of great events for many years to come, I wish you a very special Happy Blogging Birthday from the bottom of my heart!

Petunia who thinks that doing the blogging thing almost every day of the year for a year is an exhausting, if not remarkable feat and will now go take a nap as she is worn out just thinking about it. California Flower Girls

Then the Circus animals begin to come to Versailles to help in celebrating Fifi’s birthday. What a bash we are all having!!!

Instead of fireworks we all ran outside with RED balloons in our hands to say AU REVOIR to Fifi before she leaves for other Tablescape Thursday parties. I left her a little note in her carriage that personal Thanked Fifi for allowing me to stop on by this week and I had the most fun getting into trouble with her!!!
THANK YOU FIFI…enjoy the rest of your time in FRANCE…
Au revoir!
~Miss Kris

Dearest Fifi:

I must say your party was more fun than any I have attended before! It was a rush to get to Versailles but oh so worth it. You looked just lovely and the carriage? To DIE for! Everything I have taught you over the years all came together in one event. So very nicely done. I am so proud of you...

Happy Blogging Birthday!

Petunia who thinks Kris is a lovely hostess!

Amy @ Living Locurto said...

Happy blog birthday FiFi!! I've really enjoyed your paintings and fun blog:-)

heidi said...

Happy blogiversary!!!!!! xxooh

Kathleen Ellis said...

Oh, Fifi! I'm wishing you the Happiest of Happy Blogging Birthdays!
Of course you are amazing in all that you do...you make all this look sooo effortless...and in addition, you are all about France with parties and adventures...a schedule that would exhaust most, and yet you keep on and look FABulous all teh while!
You are an inspiration to us all!

I can't believe Petunia is taking credit for "teaching" you all these skills...really! We both know it is I who have taught you and you who have taught her...but, if she feels better in her little bubble thinking she is the one who has taught you...well, then, I guess there is no harm! I certainly don't mind not receiving the credit as I know the truth!

Happy Happy Blogging Birthday...thank you for such a FABulous year!

To All of Madam Fifi's Guests:

I am afraid my head was swimming with too much bubbly and I committed a "faux pas" by confusing MY 100th post with Fifi's one year anniversary. Scusa, scusa and now I must go lay down to allow my head to clear.
