As I shared in my last post
, we were able to actually celebrate Valentine’s Day together for the first time in forever. While dinner was a delightful affair at Musso and Frank, the pièce de résistance was the event that took place at The Ebell. The In the Mood, Love in the 30s Dinner Dance was cohosted with the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles.
The Ebell of Los Angeles is a sprawling, gorgeous women’s club. It includes, among its salons and ballrooms, the Wilshire Ebell Theatre, site of Amelia Earhart’s last public appearance and where Judy Garland was discovered. If only I could afford the membership, I would love to support this organization more.
The evening was a stunning gathering, featuring dinner (which we didn’t go to) and dancing to Dean Mora and his orchestra. Of course, we had to pose on the moon again. My guy holds my heart (blech, I don’t usually do that kind of sickly-sweet sentiment.)
The Ebell showcased part of its gorgeous collection of period garments.
It was a wonderful and romantic evening spent with friends and my handsome Valentine. We really need to dance a bit more, but other than that, it was a magical evening. I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day with all of your loved ones, romantic or otherwise.
