high society

Lil Petunia attended the birthday/slumber party of one of her BFFs last night. Above is one of two mermaid mosaics that are at the outside entrance to her friend's home. They are so beautiful and, due to the fact that I love shells and I love mermaids, I tend to gaze at them every time I visit their home. Aren't they pretty? Now I want shell mermaid mosaics on the outside of my house, too, although it might look a teensy bit ridiculous. Perhaps on the back patio by the pool?? On this particular home right on the ocean they look splendid!
For dinner the girls were taken to The Breakers Hotel. While they were there, the birthday girl's mother called me to ask if it would be okay if the girls' watched "Hairspray" due to the fact that it is a PG movie. At the end of our conversation she asked me if I would like to speak with Lil Petunia. I said well, sure, if she wasn't in the middle of something, to which the Mom responded "Oh, no! She's right here--hold on!" So, Lil Petunia gets on the phone and the first words out of her mouth (much to my horror) are:
"Mommy! This place is SO GREAT! It is EVEN BETTER THAN CHUCK E. CHEESE'S!!!" .......

OMG. Did my daughter just scream that out loud in front of the birthday girl's mom in the middle of The Breakers?? Yes. She did. I am mortified. If you remember this post, then you know that I take my daughter to only the finest dining establishments in Palm Beach County.
(It turns out that what she meant is that The Breakers has a game room even better than CEC.)
When I went to pick her up today Lil Petunia and her two besties were still having so much fun being together that I took them out to lunch at Hamburger Heaven.  During the car ride there Lil Petunia suggested that we have lunch at The Breakers instead!  Ha!  Ummm...no.  We had to drive right in front of The Breakers on the ride to HH, so all three girls started squealing with delight when they saw the hotel.

I'll bet the Breakers is glad that they outrank CC!!!! I went to CC once with a girlfriend that had a young daughter and I SWORE I would not darken the doors again. Which I didn't. Until my son came along...

Thanks for the GREAT post!

Lil Petunia is a budding socialite.
She's outgrown CC. Good for her !!
Do you think a can help out if she's invited there again. Perhaps i can get a job as the "Breakers Granny"

I agree with Lil Petunia, I'll take The Breakers over that pizza slinging rat any day of the week!

Oh, gosh what a wonderful story! I must say I do agree with your little one, I would take The Breakers over just about anything, anyday! I love PB!!

Lil P is such a doll! Beautiful. What great taste she has! ha. I can do that with my tongue, but my boys and husband cannot. However, they can all wiggle their ears and I can't do it to save my life. Too funny.

Oh, I agree that The Breakers is better than most of my usual haunts! I can bet you'll be hearing about The Breakers until she is 18!

Happy Daily said...

Hello! Wow, birthday parties are getting so posh! Your daughter sounds delightful! I am glad she had fun!

Have a wonderful day!

I Love it! Actually, I try to limit my visits to CEC to once a year. My kids have been begging me to have a CEC bday party for years. I refuse to do it. I offer them the world not to! I do take them, but a whole party there, no way!!! My daughter loves salad bars and theirs really creeps me out.

Mrs.D said...

Wow, I am impressed by the birthday party. Fancy!! What a beautiful place!

Mrs. K said...

how funny...my daughter went to this hoity toity pre-school and the birthday parties? ridiculously expensive. My favorite one though was the one with the martini bar (for a 3pm 4 yr old birthday), sushi bar, ice cream bar, kid's buffet, and oh yeah I think my kid had a good time. Thank goodness my friend's hub didn't drink and was our designated driver.

ps- i did your tag! :)
