Last Sunday, my friends, Claire, a jewelry designer and Debbie, an interior designer and I attended the California Gift Show in downtown Los Angeles. A few of the days highlights:
Selecting ribbon for gift packaging and wedding events.
Checking out beautiful imported handstitched quilts
Furniture and antique linen pillows from Davenport Home.
Another oversized clock from Eloquence. Great ceramic bowl.
Accessories from Two's Company.
We will go back to spend more time with the regular vendors
at the Merchandise Mart next week after the show.
Grande Finale: We had a late lunch in downtown LA at:
Bottega Louie Restaurant here.
Wood fired pizzas made on an ornate antique counter. Delicious~
The music was blaring and you had to shout directly into the servers ear to order but
These macaroons were even better than Laduree's in Paris (yes, hard to believe)...
Loved the salted caramel and passion fruit flavors.
Crazy colors but the tastes are intense and such elegant packaging.
I purchased a "Louie" box of macaroons for my mom, Louise.
It was colorful day with sweet friends.
Have you had a fun and/or productive outing with a friend lately?
