6th Annual Winter Ball II

This past Saturday, December 13th was the 6th Annual Winter Ball hosted by Michael Arenella and the Jazz Age Lawn Party. After attending the summer lawn party, the perfect relaxing afternoon for jazz, tea and gin, I knew that this night would be an evening filled with glamour, and the excitement of cocktails fashioned by Julie Reiner and dancing fit for the prohibition. 

A ball with no dress, I was feeling distressed... but was really excited to get to wear this stunning art deco inspired dress from Bariano and am all too sad that it shall disappear at the stroke of midnight. Flower headpiece gifted by Fairytale Flower with pearls gifted from Halcyon Fair.

Not to be alone at the ball, especially on my birthday, my charming husband joined to collaborate taking pictures with me. You will spot him as the handsome guy later in the photos ;)

If you were not able to join us this past weekend, pencil in February 14th on your calendar for ththe 6th Annual Sweetheart Soirée at Norwood.

The Winter Ball

Swinging jazz got the party going by The Michael Arenella Band, joined by Gregory Moore and The Dreamland Follies, The Minsky Sisters and Nicole Renaud. 

What would the holiday party of the season be without Kris Kringle? I got my very own dance! I guess I have been good this year.

A fantastic evening, sure to put you in the holiday mood. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 


  1. Beautiful photographs. Your hair is immaculate & I love the lip treatment. Looks like you two had a wonderful time! :-*

  2. I love the whole world you captured here. Beautiful work, and I'm envious of the soiree.


  3. How does one organize something like this in their city?

    1. I believe that these are organized originally by Michael Arenella and his band. I think a good place to start would be through a band and securing a venue. xoxo

  4. It looks like an amazing event with beautiful costumes and outfits. Wonderful atmospheric photographs.

  5. Absolutely stunning! These photos really took me back to that era, just gorgeous. Your dress, just stunning and so are you.
