We cobbled together our air-mile points.
We collected our Citi-rewards and bought Marriott cards.
We got our party clothes together.
I took up needlepoint and made a gift!
And then we traveled to Chicago to celebrate with the Buxoms.
It was their 25th wedding anniversary and they hired a ballroom for their nearest (and farthest) and dearest.
K and I and their family and friends celebrated in the most stunning club in the city.
There was a 16-piece orchestra which played dance music from the 40's, 50's and 60's.
They were impeccable.
The conductor was a delight to watch and listen to.
(Look at his shoes!)
The flowers were breathtaking.
We danced, we ate wonderful food...it felt like it was everybody's anniversary.
We enjoyed ourselves immensely.
It was a beautiful party for a wonderful couple.
And what did I bring them?
A pillow I needlepointed of their pet-names.
Poppy loved it, which made me very happy.
It was a night to remember - romantic and chic, truly divine.
