Timote in tuscany

Almost a year ago we where in Tuscany!

After the south of France, Tuscany is our best place to spend our October vacation.

For Sebastien we chose Aix en Provence for his christening, a wonderful place where my mum grew up and where we spent our autumn vacations.

For Timote the decision was easy, Florence! Timote was baptised in the Greek Orthodox church of Saint Jacopo in the center of Florence. All our friends followed again our crazy plans and arrived one day before for the first event!

The first event took place at Maceleria Cecchini at Panzano, a small butcher store that offers premium cuts and good red wine. We all enjoyed the food and went back to Lucca where most of the guest stayed. Lucca is an unskippable artistic city that you should definitely visit if you are around. 

The second event took place in Cune where a local team cooked live wood oven italian pizza.

Next day after the religious/traditional part of the baptism vans where waiting to transfer all guest to Villa Vatureglio, an  outstanding estate where the dinner and party took place. A first welcome cocktail was organised with big tuscanian cheese and ham buffet. Prosecco and red wine from a local domaine. 

The doors opened and Pavlina Voulgaraki welcomed all the guests with her smooth and moving voice! A set up 4 courses dinner was prepared by il fattore party catering. A combination of local dishes and gourmet touches. Long tables with cross back chairs, linen tablecloth, dry flowers . Autumn colours was our main palette. I designed our roadtrip map which we used for the favor and tore bag.

The night finished in the barn of the Vila where our lovely Dj, George Veriopoulos and the open bar kept all guests until late on the dancefloor!

A weekend to remember! Even if the roadtrip was not very easy whenn you have two small kids and you are at the same time planning a 3 days event the memories are touching and we will never forget of that weekend!!
