A Gatsby Christmas Party


The Christmas season is always a wonderful reason to get friends together for an evening to enjoy some good food, laughter and each other's company (and maybe a fun gift or two!). Each year's party is always eagerly awaited, as we've accumulated stories to share, and reminisce over sparkling raspberry cider. This year's theme was inspired by my halloween costume of Daisy Buchanan from F. Scott Fitzgerald's, The Great Gatsby, and yes, with the recent film adaptation of the book, it only seemed fitting to host a glittery, Gatsby-inspired Christmas party. Everyone donned a glittery frock, headbands (I played with a faux-bob hairstyle), pearls, and even a feather boa to emulate the styles of the 1920's, and we were lucky enough to enjoy an evening under the cafe lights outdoors. White and glittering gold pieces were accented with black, and loose gems sparkled among the decorations as golden lions, elephants, and zebras danced with mini disco balls among the tulips arranged on the table. As we caught up on each other's recent endeavors, and exchanged gifts, we also toasted to the cheerful season, the upcoming new year, and the friendships we're blessed to have. CHEERS!
