Some Enchanted Evening !

Dear friends, this is the first time I join the ‘By Invitation Only’ series of our blogger colleague Marsha Harris of the blog Splenderosa.

Each of us participating in the ‘By Invitation Only’ group, has received an invitation to a fabulous virtual Christmas party in Tina’s new home.

The lovely Tina is the author of the gorgeous blog ‘The Enchanted Home’.  Tina is building her dream house, a gorgeous new home, and weekly she shares with us the house updates!

I am so thrilled to be invited to this party and can’t wait to see her gorgeous home finished!

Here is the link to all Tina’s house updates : http://theenchantedhome.blogspot.com/search/label/house%20updates.

The party date is December 23rd.

Congratulations Tina on your new home!!


Let’s party!!!


A lot of bloggers will meet at this Christmas party!  There will be live music, carolers, a lavish buffet and champagne passed around by waiters in tuxedos!!!

I am sure it will be a great and not to forget Christmas party!!


Teddy Tina's dogI am sure that Tina’s dog Teddy will join us and enjoy this party as well!


But question is:  What should I wear to go to Tina’s party???

Here is my outfit choice.

I would love to ask our Belgian fashion designer Edouard Vermeulen of the fashion house NATAN to design for me a coat as this one.


And a little black dress as this one.


I love the simplicity and elegance of the Chanel styled coat and dress.


I have chosen for a handbag of the Belgian fine leather luxury goods company DELVAUX.

I would love to wear these gorgeous GUCCI black satin with paillettes embroidery sandales.

To me Gucci has the most gorgeous shoes in the world.

And I will take a second pair of shoes with me in case my feet hurt from dancing! Again a pair of black suede Gucci pumps.

I have chosen for black WOLFORD panties.

And here is the jewelry I had in mind.

This CHANEL watch has stolen my heart.

As you do know I love pearls, so I have chosen for a pearl necklace and bracelet.

And very simple pearl earrings.


I would wear my hair the way Rene Russo did here.


And for my make up, I would go for the smokey eyes look.

Eye shadow Chanel Les 4 Ombres, n°93 Smokey Eyes

And I have chosen for the :

Lipstick Chanel Rouge Coco,n°18 Rouge Noir

Nail polish Chanel Le Vernis, n°18 Rouge Noir



My perfume ! Chanel Coco Mademoiselle.


So far my outfit!


I would love to bring my friend Tina lots of hostess gifts all the way from Belgium.

Here are my choices :

A key ring of the Belgian fine leather luxury goods company Delvaux for her new home keys, scented candles of the Belgian company Scapa Home, Belgian choclats, to share with her family, of the house Pierre Marcolini, a beautiful Belgian Beta Plus book about gardens to inspire Tina to do the landscaping of her new home, Belgian table linen of the famous Belgian linen company Libeco and my very personal gift : an oak serving plate made in our company Lefèvre Interiors.

Mosaic 2

And not to forget some gifts for our sweet Teddy!Mosaic Teddy 

And I have asked my friend Sande of the blog A Gift Wrapped Life to wrap them up with one of her most beautiful wrappings!
