French Kiss Cafe

I just wanted to take a moment to highlight one of the best French Caterers I have ever experienced. This past Sunday, at my Vintage Swap party, Sammy was the hit of the party. He owns French Kiss Cafe, it is not about kissing but if you want to touch your lips to one of his savoring crepes, Oooooh LA LA - you could say that you end up french kissing one of the Salmon, Ham or Chicken crepes which he adds your choice of avocado, mushrooms spinach, tomatoes, onions and mozzarella,  mixed with  cream sauce or pesto sauce. The dessert MMMMM!! is Chocolate Nutella, bananas, all kinds of berries & whipped cream.  
I enjoyed talking about the French music we had playing in the background and of course the yummy crepes he prepared for all the girls. He sets up at the Malibu farmers market every Sunday to make his crepes.   I will say, if I wasn't hosting, besides swapping for new fab vintage clothing, I would have sat there tasting each tasty crepe he had on the menu or just asking him to prepare a custom-made one, just for me. Don't forget to visit his Website and book him for your next event.

Vintage Swap Garden Party

I had a great time with my first vintage swap on Sunday; the turnout of some fashionistas and vintage lovers was just perfect and intimate. Just set in my back yard, which still is in the process of being transformed into a little French garden oasis, was perfect. We had a great time playing dress-up and scoring some amazing vintage frocks, I got an amazing leather coat with what I believe is a fox collar, 

a 1920’s flapper micro beaded purse 

a romantic, a la Ralph Lauren or Laura Ashley which ever you prefer (no label on it) long summer dress

not to mention a gorgeous sterling silver flapper cameo pin.

Bernie scored this amazing 1950’s beaded dress in the most scrumptious cream color (which I had my eye on but did not fit into)

  a 1970’s stringy sweater

and a sequined beaded tunic, lucky girl, 

Janet got this gorgeous 1950’s turquoise beaded top. 

 a few summer hippie dresses, 
and a 1950’s doctors leather bag.
I can’t recall all the items the other ladies got but Licia, my #1 flapper lady,
who I got the beaded flapper purse and sterling pin from, went home with a beautiful 1950’s faux Persian lamb fur coat, 

Sharon scored a gorgeous micro beaded flower purse, I wish I have a picture of it and her niece, a leather 70’s coat 

Oesolya, a mod 60’s wool pea-coat and a 1940’s hat.

Janet also brought all the girls gift bags, what a gal she is, thank you Janet.

The gorgeous hydrangeas, thank you Sharon they are beautiful against the ugly back ground.

 These are just few of the goodies before the table got full.

Two full racks for the girls to keep swapping

Girls just want to have fun.

 Charley got in the mix of things

Now for the best part, thank you Janet Simon for getting us the most amazing caterer Samy Bazine who owns French Kiss. He is the friendliest French man I have met and with his French inviting accent he created crepes to your liking right there, while the girls couldn’t wait to savor them. He also provided a menu which you can choose from. I ordered my Paris Crepe – Chicken with cream sauce, onions and mushrooms OOOH LA LA it was to die for. The crepes were nice and big. I also got to taste a couple of mini crepes he made which included a Monaco - Smoked Salmon, spinach, mushrooms and mozzarella and a Veggie Crepe - avocado, spinach, tomatoes, onions, cheese and pesto sauce. Accompany with a nice tossed salad. To end the evening off with the dessert we had a I Chiterou - Nutella, bananas & whipped cream. Hope for our next event we’ll have him again. 
For your next event if you live in Los Angeles or Malibu don’t hesitate to call him (310) 779-2656 and visit his website
