Giving Thanks

We at Sérendipité would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the continued support from our vendors and trade partners for sharing their expertise and knowledge with us each day and for always going the extra mile for us.  YOU know who you are, and we could not do what we do each day without you.

To our loyal clients who have become friends and family, we are thankful and inspired by you each day as you teach us so much and always inspire me to learn more and more each day.

And on a personal note, to my dearest friend and incredibly smart and detailed Silva, thank you for staying on top of everything we do and for all of your hard work and attention to detail (it is so good I had to add this twice), I am so thankful. To my fabulous Melissa, who is always so eager to learn and help me each day for nearly four years, to you I am so thankful for you (you have no idea).  Lastly but not least dear Kate, you have made me fall in love with interior design and your beautiful energy is infections and so good, thank you!

Included in our little bog post today we share a fun libation recipe (below)!

Cheers and Much Love,

Sérendipité

Champagne-ing in France

One of my favorite things is Champagne!  On my travels to France this past week, with my daughter Haley, we had a fantastic time sightseeing, tasting the lovely foods of Paris and we took a super fun cooking class at La Cuisine Paris

Being a champagne lover, I have to say experiencing champagne tasting in a small town outside of Reims was the highlight of my trip.  We stayed at Le Château de Rilly, “a privileged location, between Reims and Epernay, in the heart of the Champagne vineyard created in an old 18th century Champagne house.”

The experience at Le Château de Rilly was so special.  I loved the authentic décor, wonderful hospitality of the staff and the delicious five-course dinner. It felt as if we were eating in a private dining room. It was so very special for Haley and I.

We tasted champagne in the local’s homes (seriously we tasted champagne in the wine makers living rooms!). My favorite experience was at Didier Herbert Champagne, the champagne was so delicious. One of my favorite selections from Didier Herbert was La Grande Reserve Premier Cru, which had notes of caramel and vanilla. I will never forget the taste of this particular champagne and this wonderful, once in a lifetime travel experience with my daughter.

Happy Designing & Happy Travels!
