Mansion Ball

I received this invitation, which sounded intriguing:

The three remaining Crawford brothers request your presence in an evening of hors d’oeuvres, dancing, and cocktails. Renovations to the mansion are nearly complete for this night of fun celebration. Formal attire is required.

What was more intriguing is that I don’t know any Crawfords. Three friends of mine went all out for their second annual joint birthday bash, this time with an old-school black-tie event. We called each other sir and madam, we did the waltz, and we made classy toasts to the birthday boys. All around a great night.


Here is my first try at a funbooth with make shift everything (bed sheets, stools stacked on chairs, shop lights, bedstand lights, etc). They even had an Instagram slideshow playing throughout the evening displaying photos the guests tagged with #mansionball. Really cool effect!
