Savoir Faire is 200!

It is hard to believe that last year when I started this blog that I would be where I am today in blogging land. This is Savoir Faire’s 200th post, and I am so thankful for all the people that follow Savoir Faire.

So since it is Savoir Faire’s 200th anniversary lets all celebrate with some bubbly.

Douse yourself in Champagne, the YSL perfume that unfortunately had to change its name to the almost un-pronounceable Yvress, due to those damn champagne lobbyists objecting to the use of the name Champagne. Housed in distinctive bottle with a champagne styled stopper, this is a light airy summer fragrance that actually smells like champagne.

Molyneux and Schiaparelli had the endorsement of Mumm champagne in the 50’s to use their name on perfume bottles with their scents encased within. Molyneux chose “Le Numero Cinq” as below and Schiaparelli ‘eau de sport’, proving that it was a celebration to use both perfume and champagne.

Around the home we may like to celebrate sitting down on this fabulous stool made to look like the wire of a champagne cork.

At the dinner table these quirky little salt and pepper shakers in the shape of champagne corks are wonderful.

Dinner could be illuminated via the fabulous lighting fixture commissioned by Veuve.

Although not particularly me, I can see the fabulous design aesthetic behind this wonderfully designed champagne carrier and table. Definitely something to take us into the space age while sipping champagne.

While on the subject of sipping champagne, it was the ultimate in decadence to drink champagne out of a lady’s evening shoe. Christian Louboutin and Piper Heidsieck have been in collaboration to produce this fabulous glass slipper to drink out of with out the threat of any nasties.

Catching the Eurostar to France from St Pancras, I don’t think a little glass would go astray at the Champagne bar at St Pancras Station, just to get us in the mood for the journey.

Once in France a stay at the Hotel Du Marc in Champagne would get you in the celebratory mood.

Or if travelling to the other side of the world, no celebratory visit would be complete with out a visit to the Champagne Pool in Rotorua, New Zealand, a hot thermal spring with bubbles like champagne.

And for the serious, the ultimate in Champagne glasses the Hoffman Series B.

So Ladies and Gentleman, I raise my glass to you all, and say thank you!
