St. Barth Properties Hosts Seaside Soirée for its 30th Anniversary

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

I finally made it back to St. Barth in early November. The island was on its final push to be prepared for The Season. Many roads were under construction, so we had to be creative as to how to get from here to there. Installing underground wiring is a huge undertaking, but the result will be well worth it. The roads have reopened, so Come on Down.

I have been busy with villa and hotel inspections ever since. On December 7th, 2018, we hosted a very special “Launch The Season” Soirée at Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa in celebration of the 30th (Pearl) anniversary of when I founded St. Barth Properties and trademarked Live Your Dream®. Guests were greeted with a signature Pearl cocktail made just for the occasion, or a Coupe de Champagne and then escorted to a portrait corner that was beautifully decorated by the famous florist Djordje Varda for a keepsake photo.

The entrance to the Soirée displayed my trademarked mantra Live Your Dream®.

My St. Barth team checked in the guests and gave each woman strings of pearls to celebrate the occasion.

We welcomed our guests to our Soirée at Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa with a Coupe de Champagne or a Pearl Signature Cocktail created just for the 30th anniversary event.

Son, partner and VP, Tom Smyth and I toasted the start of the new season.

The guest list included villa owners, hotel partners, service partners, friends as well as all our clients who were vacationing here at the time. DJ Philippe Paris and singer Don Soley entertained us while everyone enjoyed food and drink and chatted throughout the evening. Some of the team from our US office were there to welcome people, too.

Soley is a tradition and always entertains our guests with his songs.

Guests mingled well thoughout the night.

I enjoyed chatting with our guests.

Caribbean Breeze villa owners presented these flowers to me. They were the first people to whom I sold a villa many, many years ago.

St. Barth office Directrice Pascale Minarro-Baudouin chats with a guest.

Pascale and I had as much fun as everyone else.

I attempted to start my speech and introduce our new Live Your Dream® catalogue a few times, but was interrupted by a couple of power outages, reminding us all that we were on an island, after all, and to just go with the flow. I finally accomplished the feat in English, and made a stab at giving it in French, too and it seemed to be well-received If you would like us to mail you a catalogue, please click here.

Hot off the presses, I introduced our latest Live Your Dream catalogue. If you would like a copy, please click here.

The team, to whom I am forever grateful for their support, stood by me as I delivered my speech.

My son and VP Tom Smyth gave me a nice post-speech kiss while my husband Steve looked on.

I wish you the happiest of holidays and I hope you enjoy the photos that were taken by our very talented photographer Laurent Benoit.

See you in St. Barth!

It was a beautiful beachfront setting.

The incredibly beautiful hanging chandelier at Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa survived Hurricane Irma- A true miracle.

My husband Steve allowed me to Live My Dream by supporting me all the way.

A mixture of the St. Barth and USA St. Barth Properties teams wishing you well.
