Karen and Family and the Crocker Ball


Cal and Karen at home after the ball. i-phone photos from the ball itself. Very low light conditions but there were professional photographers there taking photos so we are looking forward to seeing those. Lovely art deco era theme. Greeted by red carpet lined with Santa clad young Rockette-like girls. Memorial auditorium is a delightful Byzantine Deco styled building and guys in trench coats and girls dressed in cigarette girl costumes dispensing candy not the deadlier epynonymous paraphernalia.
Loved the hors d'oevres. Mini Ruebens a fave. Champagne cocktails and Marilyn Monroes - yum!
Wonderful lounge decor and divine food and wine. The music was danceable but too loud at the end of the evening. One always hopes for a slightly more toned down atmosphere at the end of the affaire. We did leave before our coach turned into a pumpkin at midnight. Though Cal suggested I was wearing the pumpkin. I love orange and got a lot of compliments on that gown! My fellow Fiskateers would be proud. I decided the silver with rhinestone clutch was too prom matchy-matchy and went for a green silk bag.
The best part of the evening was spending time with family. A wonderful start to the holiday season!Posted by Picasa

Awww - see now Im use to the loud music doing banquets....thats the fun part of the night when everyone is fired up on the booze and out dancing on the dance floor - thats the part of the night where it starts to wind down slowly for us....and we are just purely clearing and cleaning off the tables.....
