New Year’s Eve in Sanctuary means square dancing!

The ladies of Sanctuary are getting out their petticoats and dancing dresses for the annual New Year’s Eve Square Dance and Ball.  Everyone turns out to welcome the new year by kicking up their heels, and partaking of apple cider (both hard and soft) and homebaked goodies.

As you can imagine, there’s much discussion of what to wear (and afterward, of who wore what).  Here are just a few of the possibilities:

Add a touch of elegance with a velvet vest.

The gents have it easier: a new pair of jeans and a clean flannel shirt will do for them.  Although many fellows accessorize with fancy bolo ties, leather vests, and belt buckles, as well as snappy cowboy boots.

The best things happen while you’re dancing…

    I love both of the square dance dresses displayed here. Could you let me know where they were purchased or how I could get either one of these dresses? Thanks so much for your help.

    • Marlys, I’m sorry but I just borrowed the photos of the dresses from the internet. I wish I could help you out with purchasing them, but I don’t have a resource for that. Thanks for visiting the blog!
