SPLASH OF GOLD

July 15, 2018

Just 6 days to go until the big Mustique 50th celebration party.  'A Splash of Gold' is the dress code, and we have yet to finish making our costumes! 

Embellishing a Pink House Mustique collarless shirt with gold braid.Looking for inspiration I came across Colin Tennant's 50th birthday party celebrated here on Mustique.  Gold was the theme and wow did they dress up! Amazing costumes, head-dresses and decorations.  I remember Colin telling me he had all the seamstresses in St. Vincent making costumes for the big event.

And more recently, costumes from Mustique's New Year's Eve party in 2016 - "Carnival"

 I wonder what costumes will be in store for us on Saturday 21st July 2018 ?
