Thanks to the lovely Shenanigans for recommending I go with this Shrug to complete my ensemble =) I think it compliments my Clutch quite nicely =) I can't wait to see everything all put together!!!! ♥ LOVE ♥ my accessories =) =)
What better way to show a lil 40's flair, than in your hair =) Here's my Hair Inspiration coupled with my 40's inspired Teardrop Fascinator Hat & Triangular Birdcage Veil =)
I'm soooooooooooooooo excited!!!!! Thank you to the lovely Shenanigans for keeping her lil miracle toes crossed for me!!! Aaaaaaand to the most amazing FI a girl could ask for =) We got the most amazing deal!!! We will be staying at the GORGEOUS Mon Hotel in the Executive Suite =) I can't wait till September!!!!! Check it out!!!
Mon Hotel is one of Paris's most innovative boutique hotels, and its location is just a stroll away from the infamous landmarks everyone loves, namely the Arc de Triomphe and Champs Élysées. Sleek and contemporary, Mon Hotel proves that luxury status can at times be whimsical in its approach to hospitality. Part of Preferred Boutique collection of properties, the hotel hosts just 37 comfortable chambers, concealed behind a townhouse façade. With the turn of a knob, discover a glamorous motif with striking black-and-white prints paying homage to Hollywood's Golden Era and tributes to Marilyn Monroe at every turn. En-suite baths are like petite spas, featuring luxuries such as freestanding tubs and showers that double as steam rooms. In the morning, roll out of bed and assume the role of barista with your very own in-room espresso machine.
The bistro at Mon Hotel is on the sassy side, with aubergine-colored walls, ebony tables and violet fabrics. The food is simple yet satisfying, and is sure to please gourmands. You will also find a spa and fitness center with an equally enticing color palette of purples and chocolates, as well as a legendary steam room that gives the illusion of stepping into van Gogh's Starry Night masterpiece. Best of all, the City of Lights beckons from beyond the lobby - from the iconic Eiffel Tower to the more obscure Père Lachaise Cemetery, the final resting place for such legends as Edith Piaf and Oscar Wilde.
Check out our Room! =)
Here's a video as well:

The FI & I were messing around with different Table Settings & I think we may have them figured out =) We have special chargers for the Bridal Party versus our Guests. Check 'em out below! There will also be a lil black ornate frame that will have each person's names at their setting to tell them where they're sitting.
Here are the Bridal Party's Place Settings:
Here are the Guests' Places Settings:
(The napkin placement was actually FI's idea) =) He's so creative =)
Here are the Ornate Frame Placecards. There are 3 Different shapes to indicate the Meal Choice Selection which will all be painted black like this one:
Soooo, what do you think?!
Sooooo last Saturday the FI, Kristeen & I headed out for our Tasting at the Mediterraneo Restaurant & mmm mmm mmm it was DELISH!!! Don't mind the lighting. The lights were off and only skylights were letting the sun shine in so it's a lil funky. =) We tried 2 salads, 3 entrees & bread with spread =)
Sourdough Bread with Olive Tapenade Absolutely delicious!!! LOVE their Tapenade =) A great start to an amazing meal =)
As a surprise we're also going to have Chilean Bread "Pan Amasado". My Mom is going to trip when she sees it =)
Mediterraneo Caesar Salad Hearts of Romaine Topped with Pecorino Dressing, Crostini, and Parmagiano Shavings
This was also delicious. They make the dressing fresh on site and it was a lil too "anchovy-ie" for my taste, but it was still good =)
Panzanella Marinated Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Olives, Red Onions, Fresh Burrata with Rustic Croutons in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Fresh Basil, and White Balsamic Vinegar
This salad was awesome and soooooo pretty! It was like a fuschia explosion on the plate! The pix def do not do it justice =) I wasn't crazy about the Burrata Cheese...but then again I'm not a big cheese person. Other than that it was AMAZING!!! =)
Salmon Organico Pan Roasted New Zealand Salmon Filet with Swiss Chard, Bacon, Israeli Couscous and Roasted Tomatoes
Kristeen & the FI thought it was delicious!!!! I on the other hand am not a fan of fish so I wasn't feeling this dish. (hehe it rhymed) =P But the Israeli Couscous was unbelieveably delicious! =)
Pollo Arrosto Free Range Chicken Slow Roasted in our Wood Fire Oven with Herbs de Provence served with Sautéed Baby Spinach, Fingerling Potatoes and Natural Jus
