I feel like I’ve been hearing a lot of pop, pop, pop on TV, over the airwaves and on social media ever since late Tuesday night. Whether your guy (or gal) won or lost, I think we’re all happy that the elections are over and that our great country carried out democracy in fine fashion. (Perhaps except in Florida; although in a state populated with so many old people, you have to figure they’re going to move at a slower pace.)
Now it’s time to focus on fun, the holidays and the inevitable dilemmas of gift giving that this time of year often presents. (OK, we have a lot of work to do, too.) But there’s nothing like bubbly during this festive time of year, and I’ve found some of the best champagnes—largely from boutique purveyors—at Henri’s Reserve. Yes, I said champagne which means these divine wines have all been sourced from France in the Champagne region of this wonderful country.
And the packaging is superb. Henri’s Reserve offers just the sort of fun and elegant look you want to share with loved ones, business contacts and yes, even yourself this time of year. Bestsellers include tasting samplers such as Henri’s Tasting Soirée which features three bottles of “champ” from their favorite champagne houses. Or, if you really have someone to woo, send a case of Jacquesson 734, the standard-bearer of champagne.
You can read about all this and more at Henri’s Reserve, a classy and colorful online boutique that makes shopping a pleasure. Be sure also to check out Henri’s Journal, an informative and entertaining blog filled with all kinds of delicious nuggets. A recent post showcased terroir, one of the most interesting words of the French language. Their Facebook page furnishes lots of nice tidbits, too.

Hearts aren’t just for Valentine’s Day, especially when it comes to expressing love for mothers. Here’s my top pick for this year’s Mother’s Day: stunning Austrian choker pendants from Alpen Schatz, one of my favorite online boutiques located here in Telluride. These beauties come in an array of jewel-toned colors, presented on rich velvet ribbons. I see them as timeless treasures, perfect for moms of every age. They also make for lovely graduation, birthday and engagement gifts. Best of all, Alpen Schatz owner Mary Dawn DeBraie is offering a 15% discount to all Bonjour Colorado shoppers on orders placed through Sunday, May 13th. Just type in Bonjour upon check out to receive your special price.
