This is what I've been up to this past week and part of the weekend. I've been a little busy sewing and decorating for this Hanukkah Masquerade Ball that took place last night. We turned a very plain sanctuary into an elegant ballroom on a very low budget. I think every party needs a little drama, something big to set the scene, so we created these columns by hanging white fabric from the chandeliers and dropping strings of white Christmas lights down the middle of each column to light them up. I think it turned out beautifully, don't you?
