Last Saturday I was invited to a Purple Party by illustrious belly dancer Aurelia. “What is a Purple Party?” You ask. Well, its a party dedicated to the color purple. Everything was purple from the decorations and food down to our required dress.
Upon arrival, I was transported to the back yard via magical fairy tunnel with balloons and streamers that pointed the way. I was guided by Aurelia’s four legged greeting party/familiar, Dirt
I was quickly enlisted to provide henna designs, which included peacocks, angler fish, dragons, and hummingbirds.
And even had my picture taken!
Then a fire was lit and magic began to take over the night as we talked, sang, ate, and hula hooped.
After everyone got situated and had a few drinks, a real life fire spinner summoned fire dragons and magic spirals to entertain us.
The night was ended with back to back plays of "Start Wearing Purple" by Gogol Bordello and we all danced around the fire and sang. Overall, it was the best party I’ve been to in a long time. If you would like to check out more photos from the party, please stop by my Facebook and give it a Like.
