The B-Day Celebrations Begin!

The former Beverly Carlton Hotel, now The Avalon

Yesterday, Larry hosted a small pre-birthday brunch for me at Viviane, The Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills.  It was SO lovely! Just a few of my besties were there: Joan, Darcy, Natalie, Brit, Mary Jo, Rhoda and Roz. 
I love this hotel so much! I used to walk by it every day on my way to and from elementary school. During those years it was called the Beverly Carlton Hotel. I remember a few scenes from Lucy's and Desi's trip to Hollywood on the "I Love Lucy" show filmed at this hotel too. To me, this place is the perfect combination of 1950s Palm Springs swanky and current hipster-chic. I'm so happy that the Avalon group turned this place into what it should have been all along, including Kelly Wearstler's fab interior decor!
