WOW! It is hard to believe that it is already December 15th. The time certainly goes by fast when you are having lots of fun, and this weekend was no exception.
Friday started off with an after-school faculty party at the home of our head of school. I then hurried home to get to an adult dinner with friends from my home town. We love to share stories and some holiday cheer at the holidays.
This year, we dined at Apolline. It is near the house and always warm and inviting. The food is always prepared beautifully and tastes so delicious.
Cheers to Apolline.
On Saturday, J & I headed out to the Preservation Resource Center’s Annual Garden District Holiday Home Tour. Though it was not my favorite this year, the houses were nice. I could only imagine living in some of that size. You are not allowed to snap photos inside the residences, so I snapped the facades of most.
We stopped by Commander’s Palace for a cocktail. It was such a glorious weather day that we sipped in the lush courtyard.
Cheers to Commander’s Palace.
We then beelined it to The Roosevelt Hotel which was again decorated to the nines. What gorgeous displays await you there. We could not miss the opportunity for a cocktail in the Sazerac Bar.
On Sunday, we took a long walk to the park stopping here and there along our Uptown route for some photos. You may recognize several of these homes from my past posts.
Have I told you how much I love the Christmas season?
Cheers to a great weekend, y’all!
