Willow's Manor Ball

[1]



It's been such a hectic day finding just the perfect dress for Willow's Annual Ball. Finally I decided on a dress from the 1950s in navy blue with gold trim, similar to the green below.

As a dance partner I tend to stick to the tried and true, and asked Prince Charming if he would give me a couple of spins around the floor like last year. The champagne tends to make me a little dizzy and with all that whirling around, well what better arms to fall into.

Barbara, your dress is so very elegant in a Grace Kelly way. Navy is always so regal.

Lovely to see you at the ball! ~xx

Hello Barbara, Thank you for your visit. I absolutely love the dress and the video was great. Richard Chamberlain. I have never seen that.
Yes, this was an exciting fun thing to do. I don't think I will ever get around to everyone though.

It was such a pleasure to meet you at the Ball, and I must say, you and Prince Charming can dance like there's no tommorow!

I feel five years old watching the adults prepare for a special evening.

What a wonderful evening! Poor Willow has that awful chore of cleaning up after her guests left. The chocolate mousse with strawberries was divine dessert. Sigh, but good thing it was cyber dessert...no calories.
