Season


Hello

Today we are going to Muse about the social season in the Palm  Beaches.  If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.

It’s Season

Here in the Palm Beaches there is a strong social season.  It basically runs from Thanksgiving through Easter.  For seasonal visitors, it is a time to mix with friends, a time of cocktail parties and soirees  Those of us who live here year round get swept up in the whirlwind.  After Easter the out-of-towners, most of them, return to their other home, fleeing the heat and humidity.

March is in the thick of it.  Last week started with a party and ended with a dinner.

Oscar Party

Arriving at the Oscars

Sunday was Oscar Night and we attended a Black-Tie Oscar party.  It was a fun event. Food stations around the house and televisions going in three places, if I remember.  Some guests came well decked out.  Others were more casual.   But I think everyone enjoyed themselves.  The Oscars, being the production they are, ran long and most of us headed home to catch the tail-end in our own easy chairs and pajamas.

That was the start of the week.

Last night we closed out the week with our own dinner party, a Moroccan Lamb tagine affair.

Jeanette set a beautiful table

I poured the wine and did a bit of the cooking.

As guests arrived we gathered for conversation and drinks.

Of course, we were visited by Teddy.

He is very friendly and despite my efforts to keep him off people, everyone conspired against me.  I don’t think there was a lap he was not in at some part of the evening.

During the dinner he occupied himself with a toy someone brought for him.  But he had not forgotten.  After dessert, he showed up again to claim his place in everyone’s heart.

HMMMM!

So now ,we are focused on the weeks to come. This coming week it looks like two art receptions and two dinners.  The following week,  four dinners.  It is Season!
