Happy 2011!

Dearest Friends of The Tearoom,

(Fauchon offers you its most precious smile for 2011.)

This came in my e-mail a few days ago from the lovely people at Fauchon. I love this image and although you may have already seen it, I am happy to share it with you...

And don't we all wish we were in Paris this New Year's Eve so we could all go have one of these objects of swooning? This is their "Eclair Paris", filled with dark chocolate cream, covered in dark chocolate icing and then topped with a gold-leaf decoration reminding us that it comes from the one city in the world that could elevate pastry to this highest level of art!

And here is the catering menu, complete with luscious photos, if you would like to see what else can be found at Fauchon for A Beautiful Parisian New Year's Soirée!

My final treat of the night, and of the year, is a fun video I found showing New Year's Eve in Paris!

Bonne Année to all the Dear Friends of The Tearoom!
May we all have beautiful, productive, creative New Years full of love, health and happiness.

Hugs to you all,



  1. Special note to my friends who live in Paris, this éclair is a very limited edition and will only be available through Friday:

    Gros bisous,


  2. Paris would be magical right now...or Tokyo. The boy thinks I should go to Tokyo since I am so enchanted by Japanese tea ceremonies, sencha, matcha, Japanese cuisine and ingredients, and so long...
    I hope that you have a wonderful and magically enchanting New Year!

  5. Dear Betty, I hope 2011 had a fantastic start for you. I am looking forward to another year of friendship with you and another year of visiting your beautiful Blog!I wore your fabulous pin the other day with my scarf and got so many complements on it! I think your beautiful pin is one of my favorites in my collection of brooches. I look at it and it makes my mind travel million miles away to the land of beauty and fantasy. THANK YOU million times for this!

  6. I just discovered your blog & loved it. I'm an interior designer from Melbourne, Australia & I found it very inspiring. Blogging is all new to me but I have just set up my own blog
    You may like to check it out because I had so much fun doing it. It's got a bit of everything fashion, interiors, food, travel spots - hopefully you will find something in there that interests you. Please stop by if you have a spare minute.
    Thanks for providing me with such great entertainment!


I am so very happy to read your comments!
