Costume Party!!!


WELCOME!!!





Come one, Come all!

The time has arrived.
My Birthday is here
let's all have a ball!

Gather your gowns, your fripperies too,
it's time to get going , I'm waiting for you.





A stroll in the morning
through the gardens so fair,
before I head off for make-up and hair.






I'll squeeze myself into my gown so tight,

I won't be able to breathe, but beauty is pain.
As long as I'm looking good, right?!







As you pull up to the castle,






an antique coach awaits,

it will carry you through the large castle gates.






Down past the Guards, you smoothly will glide,
but pay them no mind,
never you fear,
your name's on the list.
Leave your worries behind.






Upon the front lawn

I'll be here to greet you.
I'm so pleased you're here
my old friends and new.





Come, through the doors...







make your way up the stairs...






let the party begin,
toss out your cares!






We'll have chit chat and gossip,

but let's keep it light.
After all it's a party,
we want no cat fights!






Are you ready to dine,

let's all have a feast...
the table's been set
please take your seats.






You're welcome to eat

as much as you like.
There's plenty of food
there's no end in sight.






If I disappear for a bit,

don't be alarmed.
I've just dashed upstairs
for a quick costume change.






Now it's time for the Ball,
my sweet Prince is near.
Gather your partners,
get your dancing shoes in gear!





We'll whirl and we'll twirl

all through the night.
I'm so happy you're here,
it's such a delight!





I'm thrilled that you've joined me
for this party of mine.
You made my Birthday so special
It's been such a grand time.
I hope you had fun
on this magical day,
I wouldn't have spend it
any other way!






If you hadn't guessed by now, my costume(s) for this virtual party

we're from the movie "The Young Victoria"! Trust me when I tell you I
had a hard time narrowing it down to a few. The clothes in the movie
were amazing.

"The Young Victoria" is a lighthearted drama surrounding the

beginning of the romance between Victoria and her Albert. I quite
enjoyed watching it and there was lots of eye candy too.


GIVEAWAY

So, to one of YOU, I am offering your own copy of "The
Young Victoria". It doesn't matter where you live, I'll ship
it anywhere, except possible Siberia!

The only stipulation is that you must participate in the
Costume Party. For those of you that placed my party
banner on your blogs or posted about the party, you
have earned an additional chance to win already.
Good luck to you all!

You have until 12:00 PM Friday night to post a party post
then the Linky shuts down. I will announce the winner
on Sunday June 20th!









Thank you again, so so much for joining me. It is always so much fun
to play with you ladies in the land of make believe and fairy tales!

Until next year...
