Mille Fleurs Holiday Luncheon à la Denise Hug


A very coveted invite for the holidays was Denise Hug's Holiday Luncheon at Mille Fleurs on December 17th, 2007.

Denise's guests first gathered for Mimosa's in the sunny courtyard. Among the buzz, Valerie Cooper's return the night before from a birthday week in Costa Rica, a lot of talk about who's going to St. Barts for the holidays, mega-yachts, Kimberly Hunt's return to Channel 10, where to get the best take away for Christmas holiday entertaining, Diane Bell's new family addition, and of course Julien Hug, Denise's son and host for the luncheon.

Among the pretty mix there were Dianne Bashor, Nancy Browar, Tanya Brandes, Leanne Shapery, Kathy Connor, Laura Bradley, Conny McNally, Linda Swortwood, Joanie Wafer, Karen Hoehn, Barbara Enberg, Linda Swortwood, Jinda Schatz, Diana Cook, Patty Cooke, and the aforementioned.

.....And about fifty more guests. It was a big luncheon!

Of course the pretty hostest with the mostest with a slim size 0-2 figure, Denise Hug, made sure that everyone knew everyone else, and everyone had a terrific time..... And we did!

Guests sat down to a Chef Martin Woesle lunch of perfection. Butternut squash soup with cinnamon croutons was the starter. Followed by a salad of Maine Lobster, just picked garden greens, avocado, papaya and lemon dressing. The apple strudel dessert with currants, almonds, caramel sauce and ice cream was sinful and lovely.

Guests were admonished not to bring gifts for Denise on the invite. No one listened.
