Ringing in 2012 in Charleston

I hope you all had the most magical Christmas. I cannot wait to share all the details of ours with you and to share all the goodies Husband spoiled me with! 

Today, we are jetting to Charleston, South Carolina to ring in 2012 in Southern style. Any must sees, my Southern Belles? 

I cannot wait to take in all the gorgeous architecture,

enjoy sailing on the ocean and strolls on the beach,

cozy up in our quaint home for the week,

and swoon over lots of PINK! Ooh la la!

We are attending a New Year's Eve Ball on the waterfront, and I will be decked out in Lilly! Cheers to 2012, y'all! XX

Joyeux Noel!

Merry, merry Christmas from the Champagne Chateau!

(I couldn't make up my mind, so I did two Christmas cards this year... tee hee)

Santa baby, slip a present under the tree...

May your Christmas be filled with pink and green pretties! Wishing you a blessed
Christmas filled with love. 

Mistletoe kisses,

Champagne Christmas Soiree

Do you remember this invitation that I shared with you a few weeks ago? Husband and I have been busy floating from one party to the next, and this past Saturday was the long-awaited day of our soiree - such fun! We had about 50 guests, went through many bottles of bubbly, and our home was just bursting with Christmas cheer and love! 

Here is a photo I snapped as Husband and I anxiously awaited the arrival of our guests... red tights and red Christmas tree embroidered pants were a must!

just a few bottles on ice

lined up and ready to go - cheers! 

Tis the season to celebrate - merry Christmas to each of you! XOXO

Bright Lights, Long Nights

3 more days until Christmas - I am just bursting with excitement! 

NYC is so festive and beautiful when it is aglow at Christmastime - I'm so happy to share photos with you today from Husband's and my long weekend in the big city. 

As you know, we stopped into Bendel's for a few baubles for me - I adore those brown and white boxes! 

The Tiffany's carousel window displays were absolutely stunning, and the surprises inside the windows were magical. 

We stopped into Louis Vuitton to give Louis a little Christmas treat - a new monogram! 

We popped into the Plaza for some champagne cocktails and hors d'oeuvres... the pink tree made me positively giddy!   

The tree at Rockefeller Center was a must, of course. 

Dinner at the Carlyle was divine. 

The window displays of Christian Louboutin and Oscar de la Renta were too precious not to snap a photo! 

We had a Gossip Girl moment and brunched at the Palace Hotel. 

... and found Chuck Bass's Hotel Empire. 

I slipped into a few LBD's at Milly on Madison. 

We reminisced about Paris at Ladurée. 

And took a stroll near Wall Street to take in more landmarks.  

We ended the weekend with an emotional visit to the 9/11 Memorial. 

Merry, merry Christmas from Mr. & Mrs. Champagne in the Big City! XO
