Summer Ball

I love any chance to dress up. The getting ready is always as much fun as the event and Saturday night was no exception. Naturally there was the last minute scramble for tights with no ladders in them, the right earrings and finding that elusive bobby pin. 

Our Summer ball was held at a beautiful rambling country house just outside Durham. There were drinks in a beautiful wood panelled room and we ate in a hall with ivy wrapped around the pillars. There was dancing to a live band, a casino, a fairground ride and dressing up for a photo booth. 


It was the best way to celebrate the end of the year with college and good friends. I feel so blessed to have found such a community at university and to have had such a good year. 


Who doesn't love a good ball?!

It looks like everyone was having a great time and you ladies all looked lovely. My daughter has her Prom on Friday so there'll be some dressing up going on around here then. :)

Oh you looked so pretty, Abi! And "tights without ladders"...hm...I'm guessing that's our equivalent of "hose without runs." Glad you had a great time, and I'm really glad you took photos to share with us! :o)
