RIENDS of Rena Kirdar Sindi gathered at a soirée at Christofle on Madison Avenue in New York to celebrate the release of her new book, Be My Guest: Theme Party Savoir Faire.
Among the many guests were Alex and Alex Von Furstenburg, Serena and Samantha Boardman, Cornelia Guest, Tomas and Marean Pompidou, Frederic Fekkai, Michael and Ginny Donahue, Sally and Rufus Albemarle, Muffy Potter Aston, Rachel Peters, Amanda Cutter Brooks, Tory Burch, and Narcisco Rodriquez.
While guests sipped Champagne Perrier Jouët, Dale N. Dewey, president of Christofle Americas, named Sindi the first "Ambassadrice Christofle" and presented her with a "Privilege Service" of Christofle Silver flatware.
Christofle created the award to honor the tradition of arts de la table.

Missing from the table, however, was Champagne Perrier Jouët CEO Jean-Marie Barillère who met Dewey earlier in the year at PJ's 100th anniversary bash.
The famed Fleur de Champagne, or "Flower Bottle," was subsequently sent to Sindi to congratulate her on both accounts.
Barillère said he wanted to send a subtle message to Sindi, in hopes that future parties would be Christofle- and Fleur-filled.
