What to expect at a Masquerade BallAugust 3, 2022
The best-masked balls are a thing of beauty, invoking opulence, indulgence and an air of mystery which is irresistible to everyone attending.
It’s a time to cast off your inhibitions, kick back and enjoy good food, the best wine and delightful company – all of which goes hand in hand with Christmas. Traditionally the season of good cheer, what better way to get together with old friends, and new, to celebrate in splendid fashion?
Christmas is also synonymous with the office party – but with stereotypes of cheesy dance moves and embarrassing photos with the boss, they are traditionally a far cry from the glitz and glamour of a masquerade ball. Until now.
Savvy event organisers and office social secretaries are cottoning on to the widespread appeal of holding a masked ball for staff at Christmas. It’s a great way to get together as a team and enjoy a taste of the high life, minus the cringe factor that normally comes with a half-hearted meal at the local pub. If you join a pre-organised event then all the hard work is done for you, meaning you can really relax and get into the Christmas spirit.
Masked balls have been around for centuries, with the lavish Venetian parties being the epitome of masquerade. In 18th century Britain, the masquerade ball traditionally took place in the winter months, bringing together royalty, aristocrats, the rich and famous in an excuse to flirt, dance and most importantly have fun – the gossip columnists of the time loved the party season for this very reason!
Of course a masquerade ball is incomplete without one very important accessory – the mask! Designed to camouflage the face, we hold an extensive range which serves to add that sophisticated element of mystery to the whole affair.
At Just Posh Masks we love the Christmas party season as much as anyone. It’s a special time of year when you can really go all out and dress in your finest, feeling a million dollars when you step out the door.
Picture the scene…
Christmas is fast approaching and you step out of your car at the entrance of a grand country mansion, where you and your office team are greeted with a glass of Champagne. Each dressed in your finest, you can feel the excitement brewing as everyone arrives wearing their stunning mask – a sign of what’s to come! You’re ushered into the dining room to take your seats for a lavish 3 course banquet, before the band pipes up and everyone steps onto the dance floor, adorning their beautiful masks once again.
A party like this is a far cry from the sorry works Christmas parties of years gone by, and is sure to go down in history as the best yet. It’s a great way to bring your team together and to celebrate the triumphs of the year – invoking a sense of comradery and loyalty like no other.
And when the night is over, you’ll be left with a beautiful decoration from Just Posh Masks, and memories to cherish for years to come
