Sentimental Reasons… A 1920’s Evening to Remember

Sentimental reasons… Just a couple of weekends ago I had the pleasure of hosting a dinner for Rebekahs and Odd Fellow members attending a two-day workshop. On Saturday evening we had dinner catered-in and a live jazz band. This really was an enchanted evening…

Hurricane winds  in Houston kept several people home but those who were able to attend the weekend enjoyed a wonderful evening of 1920’s and 1930’s jazz music by The Jazzy Gents. Gary Caplan on the upright bass is the band’s leader. 

Special guest Hannah Kirby whose family is good friends with Gary came to perform for us, too. Such a treat! Hannah was on The Voice during season 2015. She was coached by Pharrell Williams and Blake Shelton and her singing this night really showed her beautiful voice!
Dinner had a decidedly English theme to it with beef bourguignon and baked chicken…

Cherry cobbler featured for dessert and it was delicious!

Several people dressed up as well which was fun!

An original drawing I did copying Highclere Castle off the computer for our invitation. A photo of the castle was used instead (better anyway!).

Mr. Ethereal and myself dressed for the occasion. After sewing in the hem just as the dinner was beginning, I was happy to be done with this project. Just a few finishing touches are left on it and I’ll share how I made this dress in another post.

I am sooo looking forward to going to see Downton Abbey the movie as I get some time on the weekend…

Really a lovely evening and the jazz was wonderful! Wish you could have been there.
