where will you watch the royal wedding?

royal-wedding-cookiesUnion Jack bunting? Check. Sparkly tiaras? Check. Tea and Crumpets? Check and check! Everything is pretty much set chez nous to watch the Royal Wedding tomorrow afternoon. To tell you the truth, I had pretty much shrugged off all of the Kate-n-William hoopla over these past months. But then my parents came to visit - and if there’s one thing my mama loves it’s a Royal Wedding. I  remember waking up early in the morning to watch “Lady Di’s” wedding with her when I was small, and then I realized how fun it would be to watch it with her AND Mini Me this time around- and almost in the same time-zone to boot!   So, off I went to the High Street to pop into the shops for some tea and crumpets (see? I’m sounding British already, right?). I *think* what I bought were crumpets- but I picked up some other yummy pastries just in case- they’re French, but I think they’ll work in a bind.  Along with the snacks I got the aforementioned sparkly tiaras and a few bits and bobs to give our salon that oh-so-British feel.  And there you’ll find us tomorrow at noon, three generations of wedding-loving goofballs, dressed to the nines and getting tipsy off of teacakes.

And where will you watch Kate and Williams’ Royal Wedding ?

spring cleaning at parisian party

housewife_happyNotice anything different? Yup, parisian party has had “a little work done”. I’ve been working with the fabulous Astrid Mueller from Astrid Mueller Boutique Branding and Emily June from June Lily Studio on the redesign of my company website and after it was all finished, parisian party felt, well, kind of old-n-dusty, SOOO…. Voila!

I’m going to formally canonize these designing diva’s during the official redesign relaunch (although, please feel free to take a sneak peak over there now, if you’d like!), but until then, take my word for it- your life will just be better with @astrid_mueller and @junelilystudio in it!
