We began last night by planning for our party. We were born about a year apart in the beginning of May so a joint rezday party created a perfect excuse to get our friends together. I had previously arranged for a choreographer so I would not have to work at my party and this week I located the perfect place to hold the party - a beautiful pavilion deep in the woods at Vanity Fayre, one of the most beautiful sims in SL. So all that was left was invitations, delivery, refreshments, and all that other fun stuff! Tori created so many wonderful things last night: invitations, donuts, platters and salmon sandwiches (must be a Brit thing). In the meantime, I was having a terrible problem with SL, so I cleared cache and rebooted my PC. Naturally, I then had to "warm up" all the dances in my HUD. Tori managed to not only make the donuts and sandwiches for the party but also to deliver all his invitations in the time it took me to finish dancing!
Then we dressed and went dancing at Avilion Grove Ballroom. Tori was wearing a very elegant silver and black brocade vest with his tux and I wore the cream colored gown and a gold tiara. This dress is one of my least favorites; a freebie that has been lurking in my inventory for at least a year if not longer. It is very old fashioned, with a lace jacket over a modest top and a lace overskirt. Tori calls it a wedding dress, but it isn't. He loves it and I will wear it for him.
This morning I sent out the invitations to my friends and my dancing group. I was surprised that it took me nearly an hour! Right now I am listening to Tori test songs for the party playlist and chuckling at some of the music he has in his library. I know the short list I sent him was pretty eclectic and included Mozart, Joe Cocker, Simon & Garfunkel, and Jethro Tull. (I am feeling sorry for the choreographer already.)
Tonight I will try to turn Tori's creations into "givers." He is an excellent cook and I want everyone to try the donuts and sandwiches - they look delicious! I will post pictures of them when I get them finished.
