Over the weekend I went to my yacht club’s summer ball- it was absolutely gorgeous! The theme was Hollywood movies and it was all glamorous and filled with props from old films, it looked amazing!
We had a beautiful 3 course meal and each family’s table was named after a different film- Singing in the Rain was ours- and there was champagne and glitter everywhere! I know I keep repeating the word, but I really did feel so glamorous!
Apart from my high school prom (or 3 in my case, we had so many), I’ve never been to a fancy ball before. I moved back home before my university one this year and so did my boyfriend, so this definitely made up for it.
Everyone looked so beautiful (my parents pictured above looked particularly smart), there were a couple of ladies who had gone all out with elbow length gloves, fake cigarettes in long holders and fur mufflers. I loved all of the sequins and the bow ties and the vintage glamour that the place had, we all felt like we were at some kind of Oscars award show in the 40s or something!
I had a wonderful time and can’t wait to see what the theme is for next year’s ball; I’ll definitely be attending again! Now it really feels like summer and the beginning of all of the long awaited plans and social events that I’ve been looking forward to for months and months of slogging through exams and driving tests etc- woohoo!!
Have a lovely Monday!
