My mother and I had a festive Easter Sunday this year enjoying tea sandwiches, strawberries, and champagne. But the best part was spending most of the afternoon sifting through my closet assembling the perfect outfit for the upcoming Art Deco Preservation Ball on May 5th, 2012 at Bimbo’s in San Francisco.
This year’s Ball is extra special because we’re all celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of the Golden Gate Bridge. In honor of the bridge’s opening in 1937 attendees are encouraged to dress 1930s, which is one of my favorite eras. I’m keeping my outfit a secret but I will say that it has Mom’s approval.
My beau and I are looking forward to dancing to Don Neely’s Royal Society Jazz Orchestra with Carla Normand and Frederick Hodges. Vocalist Sara Klotz de Aguilar will perform and The Dimestore Dandy Ricky Quisol will be playin’ his old-time tunes. Plus local businesses and individuals who work to preserve and promote the Art Deco period will be recognized.
