Congratualtions! The Masquerade Ball last night was a great success. My husband, John, and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We met many wonderful people. Some from Germantown and Anapolis, MD and others were all the way from Sacramento, CA. The guests' costumes and masks were so colorful. The music was very enjoyable. Plenty of delicious foods and wine; and an exquisite display of delicious deserts. It's the best Masquerade Ball in Washington, D.C!
