Engagement Party Of Taneth and Tormay
hosted by Tara and Topaz
The Great Hall had been decorated, part by hard work, part by the use of magic, in pink and yellow. Pink and Yellow garlands were stung under the ceiling, Pink and yellow standards were placed between tapestries that for the evening had their colors adjusted to reflect the decorating theme. The tables were covered with yellow damask, pink runners and napkins, pink and yellow candle and flower center pieces and small platters of tiny cakes decorated with yellow and pink colored chocolate and icing. Even the upholstered seats and backs of the chairs were covered with pink and yellow patterned brocade.
Guests were greeted by men garbed in yellow tuxedos, handing each a velvet jewelry box, pink to the females, yellow to the males. The inside of the lids of party favor boxes read in gold lettering, ?Engagement Party of Taneth Mercer & Tormay Eludes 20 March 09?. The pink boxes held gold filigree brooches made to sparkle in the light with little pink diamonds. The yellow boxes held gold filigree tie pins decorated with a slightly larger pink diamond each.
An orchestra, the male members wearing yellow suits, the female members wearing pink evening gowns, was set up behind the dance floor. The buffet was laden with delicacies not only from Rhydin but from all over various realms. Waiters and waitresses moved around to keep the buffet stocked with food and drink, to assist the guests with filling plates and glasses, and to remove empties from the tables.
