      We have had some great parties and events this year! Start off the new year in that same spirit by partying with hundreds of other LDS singles at the beautiful Castle in Layton Utah. This is a masquerade ball with two dance floors, group activity areas and places to mingle eat, drink and make merry! Lets toast the new year together and dance like we don\'t care!

      Come in costume, formal, or Sunday best. But however you come, come in a mask! We have made arrangements for special pricing at several costume rental places so get yours reserved early for the best selection. There will be a contest for the best costume in several categories. LDS standards in dress and conduct of course apply.

      Cost is $30 at the door or $25 paid in advance via PayPal. You can pay online up to the the 24th, after that please pay at the door. We are capping it at about 500 people so grab your peeps and start planning! (Details on where to pay online are forthcoming.)

      Masquerade masks should cover the top part of your face only. ~NO FULL MASKS PLEASE!~ They should leave the lower half of your face exposed. Masks can be made to match your attire for the evening or they can be purchased locally or on line. eBay and Amazon have a wide selection at very reasonable prices.

      A masquerade ball is one of intrigue and mystery. The night air is cool, and the dark nighttime sky is speckled with what seems like billions of diamond stars. As your carriage draws near to the castle, you can see the glow of light from lanterns in the drive and begin to hear the
      giddiness of the guests. It\'s exciting, you have butterflies in your stomach, and there\'s no telling what handsome masked stranger you might meet this night.

      The masquerade ball must have been so much fun! Formal costumes and intricate, dramatic masks were worn by all. I don\'t know if anyone has given it much thought, but for a lady to dress for an event such as this, it was very involved. Colored stockings of crocheted lace, patterned and delicate, had to be decided on. Then came the garters, beribboned or embroidered with sequins or beads. Others were adorned with large flowers or bright birds. Corsets were worn underneath those extravagant dresses. These were delicate garments with fine whalebone and fancy lace. The silk corsets were cinched with laces, which could be an awful experience for a fuller figured woman. Gowns usually had low necks and were often made with satin brocade or delicate white tulle. With short sleeves, a tight waist, and a full skirt that opened down the front to show the stiff petticoat underneath, it\'s a wonder these women could move or breathe at all! But they looked like masked goddesses. Satin slippers often completed the look. Men looked equally spectacular in their satin suits, often decorated with lace collar and cuff.

      Masks could be made to look mystical, magical, religious, or even humorous. Women\'s masks could be an expression of feminine beauty. Made with highly arched brows, almond-shaped eyes, and narrow chin, the mask was exquisite. Whether feathered, beaded, sequined, or a lot of each, these masks were colorful and expressive. Sometimes a wig of black, thick, shiny curls sat atop a feminine mask, offsetting the alabaster face.
