G&B Christmas Party 2011

Postby ValiantArcher » Dec 01, 2011 2:00 pm

On behalf of your hosts, the G&B Moderators, welcome to the G&B Christmas Party! :D This gathering is an occasion to show off your fanciest outfits, eat scrumptious dishes, and socialise with all your friends and acquaintances. In short, you're here to have fun, whether fun is playing a game of sardines inside the manor, having a snowball fight out in the garden, baking cookies in the kitchen, going on an exploratory mission through the grounds and house, or merely camping out in front of the drawing room fire with a large mug of something warm.

Providing pictures and/or descriptions of outfits, food, etc. is not only allowed, but strongly encouraged---it's so much fun to see everything. :)

Since this is just for you all to have fun, there are only a few rules that need to be remembered.
1. Please come as yourself, and not as a Role-Playing Character.
2. If a picture is larger than 800x600 pixels, please just link to it instead of posting it directly in the thread.
3. General Forum Rules Apply.


Here's the site we're invading to start off the party:
Image

Come inside and let the festivities begin! :D

Woo hoo! How nice to come into this glorious estate. By gum it's cold outside. Looks like this blizzard could go on for quite some time, but as this lovely manor house is now ours, "Let it snow," I say!

*Takes off shoes and socks and sits by the enormous fireplace*

Image

Ahhhhhh, that's better. Perhaps once I'm warmed up, I'll get into the kitchen and make some hot cocoa. . . although, it would probably be better if there were some more guests.

Yay!! I've been waiting for our Christmas party to start! Although, I was almost blinded by the lights outside this beautiful house because I just couldn't stop staring at them all!!! So beautiful!!!!
Digs, is that cocoa ready yet? I so cold from being outside in that snow!
I brought gifts for everyone!
Image

And, I'm wearing this beautiful dress! So Christmasy! :)

*Takes some of Libby's yummy candy*

Should we play a game? Sardines in this house would be so fun!

Good grief! I haven't even started on the cocoa yet, perhaps we could turn that into a game killing two birds with one stone. (Probably two turtledoves. . . . but I digress).

*Walks into the kitchen*

Image

Ah yes, this will do nicely! Look, it even has a fire place. Perhaps not as festive as the rest of the house, but tinsel mingled with cocoa rarely tastes as good.

Now, for my recipe, I need dutch baking cocoa, water, sugar and milk. First one to gather all of the ingredients gets the first hot, steaming cup! Just make sure not to trip over my wizard robes (hey, if you gotta wear something it might as well be warm, loose fitting, and awesome ;)) )

Image

Ready, set, go!!!!

And while you guys are rummaging for cooking ingredients, I'll just take this present with my name on it. *shakes it a few times* Hmm. . . I wonder what's inside. May I open it now, Ram?

*walks up the steps of this impressive house, then steps inside and shakes the snow off her boots* My goodness! It's cold out there. And those lights are nearly blinding.

How convenient - DiGs, I just happened to have dutch baking cocoa in my purse! (What did you say? Oh, no... I'm not related to Mary Poppins.) So here you go! Now we just need the rest of the ingredients. I can't wait to taste the delicious goodness.

This is the dress I'll be wearing - complete with the pearls. Oh, and don't forget the shoes.

And before you ask - no, I'm not related to Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, either. ;))

You may observe all the presents under the tree... but no peeking! [-x
Image

Playing sardines sounds like so much fun, ram! I'm in! 1, 2, 3... not it! ;)

*scurries into mansion and slams door behind him before winter can get in*
Anybody mind if we have the snowball fight inside? I absolutely refuse to set foot outside under any circumstances until the thermometer gets back above zero degrees farenheit!
*grabs some hot chocolate and passes out fudge*

I'm so glad that you found milk and sugar in the kitchen digs! :)
This cocoa is wonderful!

Digs, you can't open your gift until everyone gets here! :P

And Sparky, the fudge is delicious! :)

I didn't realise that I had found the rest of the ingredients. We must be living in a magic house that found them for me.

*Makes another batch and places it on a tray for consumption*

Image

Now for a real treat, take one of Liberty's peppermint sticks and stir your cocoa with it. Then you'll have peppermint cocoa! (A personal favourite of mine!)

*sits down with a large tumbler full of cocoa and starts sipping it*

*As he is sipping a large snowball whizzes past his head just narrowly missing him*

Where on earth did all this snow come from?

*follows the trail of snowballs down to the basement where he discovers. . . . *

BY JOVE! This mansion has an indoor snow park?!?!?!

Image

*joins in the snowball fight having been well warmed by the cocoa!*

*brings an armload of gifts*

Oh, I can't wait for Christmas Eve!!!! A whole month left though.

*turns on Christmas music on our Christmas radio and sits down next to the fire* :D

An indoor snow park! Awesome! I'm so glad that I brought a snow suit just in case; I just have to change then I can enjoy that snow park! I can't wait! *Quickly finishes digs' cocoa (minus the peppermint, thank you) so I'm nice and warm then goes upstairs to one of the lovely and gynormous bedrooms to change. Runs downstairs*

I tagged you right in the face with a snowball digs! *Starts running from digs who is now out for revenge!*

*Bolts in covered in snow*

Am I late?! No? Good. #:-s I don't want to miss out on the party! I remember the last one... it was fun. :D

*stops a second to warm up by the fire and snag some of Libby's candy and hot chocolate*

I love hot chocolate! And Libby, you aren't the only one who's been decorating since October. I have too. :p ;) Oh, and I brought gifts for everyone!

Image

Goodness, an indoor snow park?! :-o Well, it's a good thing I haven't changed into my good dress yet. May I join in the snowball fight? :)

*dumps down some holiday treats she made and trots off while pulling her coat on*

*dances into the mansion, arms loaded with gayly-wrapped parcels and a platter of mint chocolate fudge* Oh, hurrah! The Christmas party is already in full swing! I've been anticipating this for several months now.

*samples one of Liberty's peppermint sticks, some of Sparky's fudge, and one of Gen's deliiiiiiicious-looking treats*

I'm in love with this house..... and especially the staircase. So elegant, and beautifully decorated! I'm all for Ramagut's idea of playing sardines.

*sets out with her cup of hot chocolate to explore the house*
