Eighty Juniper Ridge women were transported to Paris today and yet they never left the mountain.
I know this happened because when I entered the door I, along with everyone else was greeted with, “Bon jour madame”.
We saw the Eiffel Tower!
We enjoyed the offerings of a Patisserie too.
Ok, eighty women from Juniper Ridge didn’t actually get on a jumbo jet and fly to Paris for lunch at a Bistro but it sure did feel like it.
Nine year resident, Connie Myer and a group of wonderful ladies put on this luncheon.
I have to be honest here, I have all the names of the ladies below but I don’t know which name goes to what lady with the exception of a few. I can tell you that the leader of the group is Connie Myer and she’s fourth from left.
Her helpers are, in no particular order, Sam Zillion, Cindy Labiak, Bev Connelly, Mary Ball, Linda White, Barb Whiteman, Jane Davidson and Mary England.
This event was one year in the planning and Connie made all the decorations and they were fabulous!
Connie made every one of these cupcakes out of foam. Before I got up close I thought they were real.
There was such attention to detail in every single decoration.
Lunch included crepes,,,,
Of course the crepes were made on the spot!
Marmalade Suzette, fresh strawberries and whipped cream for filling, how does one say YUM in French?
Oh, and croissants! Chicken salad or egg salad filled croissants and fresh fruit.
This event was also a fundraiser.
You had the opportunity to bid on a purse of your choice.
