Happily I got him one but apparently still not the right one. But he pulls off the butler look quite well…
The pretty tulips are from my godmother–I invited her over for a little champers and to take some pretty pics. What’s the point of getting dressed up and then not documenting with photographic evidence?!
Tottering Hall could really do with a fireplace or a mantle, or at least a nice place to snap some pics.
So we’re dressed and we are ready, let’s go! Arrival, below.
This is the Washington Hilton International Ballroom. At 35,000 sqft, this is the largest ballroom on the East Coast. At the opposite side of the room, Senator Landrieu and also this year’s Washington Mardi Gras Chairperson.
Three dinner courses, two dances and after all the court had been introduced (favourite festival queen title: shrimp and petroleum festival and favourite princess name: Jene Chante Clayton of Port Allen, LA) it was time to go home.
Again, after the introductions of all princesses, festival queens, the krewe members, the PARADE begins! Must have gone on for a half hour and multiple multiple trips around the ballroom. The king and his queen.
The band in the parade.
A bull (?) in the parade.
The king tossing beads to his loyal subjects.
I caught only TWO strands of beads. ONLY TWO!?! How to fix? Attend the real deal.
Thank you T for a lovely time at the ball this weekend!
