Simply over the top – that’s the only way to describe the Winter Ball Saturday, Dec. 1 at the Clubhouse at Lake Sconti.

There were 180 people who arrived for valet parking on a rainy night and were greeted by Clubhouse Manager Jasmin Ilazovic. They brought Christmas gifts for children and placed them under one of the many decorated trees in the clubhouse. Dressed in sparkles and tuxedos for some, football fans headed to the bar to watch the Georgia Alabama SEC championship before an elegant four-course dinner was served by white gloved special event servers. This being the first day of Special Events and Weddings Director Gerard Monte, the table settings and décor had his distinct signature on them. Gold and silver chargers, silky table covers, tall vases of flowers and wine glasses for each course with soft lighting gave the rooms a holiday ambience.

For the die-hard football fans, between courses there were sneak peeks at phones held low in laps for the final seconds of the game.

General Manager Jill Philmon welcomed guests and for those who never made it beyond a waiting list this year told the group next year the Winter Ball would be held two nights—a Friday and Saturday—next year to accommodate more property owners.

Executive Chef Hector Rosano pulled out all the stops in his holiday repertoire as Ilazovic helped pour the four wines selected to pair with each course.

With music for dining and dancing afterwards, people were sent home with memories galore for their beginning of the holiday season.
