We're opening the velvet rope & inviting you in for a glamourous evening at the legendary
As I mentioned in my last post, Mom and I volunteered to decorate a room at the Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport for Christmas. As with any design project, we had our challenges. The biggest was the sheer lack of well, anything, in the room. No furniture whatsoever with no budget for decorating whatsoever. Not $1. What we did have, was a sprawling waterview of Northport Harbor, some wonderful old iron sconces and light fixtures and a great theme of the El Morocco nightclub.
|Garlands with dried palm fronds, blue poinsettia and silver ornaments.|
|We made tree ornaments with old black & white photos of celebs at El Morocco.|
|The blue and white lanterns were in this room and worked|
so well with the theme.
If you get a chance, stop by the Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport and take a tour. The museum is a wonderful piece of Long Island's history and they're in need of financial support. If you have friends or family visiting for the holidays its a great idea to take them for a visit.
