Event Details

Please join us for our exciting 2015 event, A Roaring Twenties Affaire at The Belamar Hotel in Manhattan Beach, CA. Let's raise our skirt hems and leave the Victorian Era behind as we flout traditional conventions and redefine modern womanhood from days gone by!
The frivolity begins on Thursday evening as we board our own private motor coach to attend an exclusive Roaring Twenties Welcome Night & Soiree at Kaari Meng's French General! Join us for this lovely evening and enjoy appetizers and Prosecco, a stunning earring project and shopping during this soiree only for 20's attendees! This is the evening to raise your skirt hem and wear a feather in your hair or dress casually! It's up to you but plan to do the Charleston and dance along with friends, old and new, as we enjoy basking in everything French General!  Our buggy leaves directly from the hotel at 4:00 PM and returns by 9:00 PM.
Our creative time takes place on Friday and Saturday, as we sit down as a group to take four 1920's styled workshops with Danielle Donaldson, Lori Oles, Kaari Meng, Elaine Marcell and Karen France. Learn four different mediums of art in our stunning workshops which include a watercolor portrait, a mixed media collage, a beaded jewelry headpiece and a porcelain half-doll pin cushion. Lovely luncheons will be served both days.
After a dinner break on your own, Friday evening we will all gather once again to celebrate yet another festive evening together ~ our Vendor Marketplace & Dessert Soiree including a Mini-Project with Hope Wallace and our exciting creative exchanges. Spend the evening shopping from our favorite local artist's beautiful creations and treasures, join in an art exchange if you choose, create a darling flapper dance card with Hope Wallace of Paper Relics and nibble on desserts.  We will also be joined by event photographer, Cynthia Shaffer, who will capture all the special moments!
Sunday morning, bright and early, brings us to our last time together before saying goodbye. Join us for an optional flea market tour to some of our favorite Southern California antique shopping spots or lounge by the hotel pool for a last minute bit of relaxation before your journey home.
