Dream Party

Clicking through photos and reading a recap from Hamish Bowles about a recent black tie affair that capped off the Couture shows in Paris sent me dreaming. What better venue to throw a party than Versailles?

The fête celebrated the opening of the Musée Galliera's exhibition “Le XVIII au Goût du Jour," at the Grand Trianon through October 9, which explores the legacy of 18th century style by juxtaposing it against the fashion of today. (Sounds fabulous right?)

I can't help but daydream about the bash I would plan at the Grand Trianon--the guest list, the the entertainment, the flowers. What fun! In a recent interview on The Enchanted Home, Elizabeth Moyer from Pretty Pink Tulips said that her dream party guests would be Oprah and Bono. Certainly they would be on my list -- along with Anna Wintour, Prince William and The Dutchess of Cambridge, Roger Federer, Lee Radziwell, Ann Patchett and Jon Stewart... just for starters. And you all, of course!

 Do tell -- who, what, where for your dream party?


  1. What a treat to see me mentioned here today! :)

    I love all the guests that you've included - especially Will & Kate, as they seem so down to earth and yet they are....royals! Anna Wintour of course, The September Issue is another favorite movie of mine. And, since she's the girl for all seasons, Gwyneth Paltrow. Is there anything she can't do?

  2. I would love to have a big party in the Champs Mars so that I can have the Eiffel Tower in the background! And since this is a dream party, I would love to invite Karl Lagerfeld, Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp and why not, Rafael Nadal!

  3. My dream party....hmmm. In a museum!
    Love the MOMA - I would invite lots of artists to attend.

  4. The reason I found your blog is because I would like a 'Let them eat cake'/Versailles party of my 30th birthday in a few months. I want flowers and cakes EVERYWHERE!! A girl can dream right?
