NBDCC 2012 Day Three….A Couture Paris Experience

Friday dawned and we all attended a breakfast in Paris.  The tables had the most adorable centerpieces


I was so excited when  my friend Deanna had her number chosen to take this lovely piece home.   It will be so appreciated and perfect in her collection. 

We were also greeted with another amazing table setting my our table host Jim .  We had another Christmas in July experience.  We even had champagne for our orange juice…mimosa anyone?  Jim you are the host with the most!


The table dolls were by our host Jim.  When we arrived at breakfast we also noticed that two new dioramas had been added to the Grand Ballroom.  The city of Paris….






And….The Atelier shop!!!!!










Ahhhhhhh!  I DIE.  Words cannot express how grateful I am to the convention committee and Mattel for bringing us this opportunity to see these amazing dioramas and having the opportunity to photograph them.  Unreal!

Aside from all the amazing table gifts from my table mates, we also received a Dressmaker Details exclusive convention fashion.


After breakfast, we sat back and enjoyed the convention fashion show.  I will share photos of that later when I get home and process the photos from my other camera.  I needed the serious camera, flash and monopod for that one.
