A Presidents Day Soiree at the Dean Street Embassy

Yesterday's post gave you the inside scoop on how I channeled Jackie Kennedy for our White House State Dinner party. But me oh my I was nowhere near the most creative for the evening! Take a look at some of the "guests" & how creative people got with who they came as, as well all their outfit details from head pieces to campaign stickers to period neckties & hemlines. Also, if you know your historical portraits, you'd know some of these people even nailed their alter egos famous poses!

In a word, these people make me giddy. People who fully commit are my favorite.

Most Elaborate Costume: Mike as the Dollar Bill President

Most Fully Committed: Margaret & Ardis as Barbara & Jenna Bush who stayed in character & southern accents the whole entire night

Most Cheaply Creative: Matt & Blair as 5th Grade Class Pres Candidates, who need nothing more than stickers & markers
