A land of magical, wonderful characters, a yellow brick road, and one evil witch set the stage for the night! Local members of the Nine O’clock Cotillion were invited to retreat from Georgia and spend an Evening in the Emerald City, hosted at Coosa Country Club.
The night started in Munchkin land, where Aunti Em’s house had just fallen on the Wicked Witch of the East. Dorothy, Glinda and the Wicked Witch of the West welcomed guests before they embarked down the yellow brick road toward Emerald City. The road was lined with large paper poppies, complete with snow, before turning toward the ballroom, where the Emerald City awaited. Here, guests were greeted by the Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and Tin Man while drinks and hors d’oeuvre were served and local band Broad and Third set the celebration in motion.
The party went on into the night, new members were welcomed, and the characters even played out a scene for guests before the midnight breakfast was served.
For us, the Nine O’clock Cotillion parties are the ones we look forward to most each year. They provide us an opportunity to showcase the creative and collaborative talents of our team and of the local community. An Evening in the Emerald City was certainly a blast, and we cannot wait to start work for the next theme party!
