I am looking beyond the holidays today, off to a magical event that was the highlight of last winter. That would be the upcoming Masterpiece Ball in Celebration of Downton Abbey, to be held on Friday January 3 at the Log Cabin.

What a wonderful night it was last year!  With fascinators flowing above the womens’ elegant gowns, and men in crisp white shirts and tuxedoes, there were also people dressed as Downton characters, like a nurse and a doughboy.

The food was exquisite and the music perfect–1920s songs played by a full orchestra.  Monte Bellmonte did a light-hearted quiz to see how much the audience knew about the show, and there were silent auction doorprizes and more.

There are still tickets left but it sold out last year.  Get tickets!

The Masterpiece Ballroom Orchestra directed by Jeffrey Holmes played 1920s music and was the perfect accompaniment to this trip back in time.
