Junior leage

Get a jump start on getting into the Christmas mood and get over to the Palmer Events Center for the annual Junior League extravaganza "The Christmas Affair"! This year the theme is "The Magic of Christmas".  It's running from November 17th-20th.  Click here for more information: www.jlaustin.org.

I make it a priority to go every year to kick off the holiday season! There are over 200 vendors from across the country and their tea room is open for lunch.  Alfred's Catering is the best...you won't want to miss his presentation or yummy food!  The decorations are spectacular...go with family or friends and enjoy all the Christmas Affair has to offer!

As always, community events are provided as a courtesy by Dorie Dillard, your NW Austin Real Estate Consultant.

Hi Joan,

This event is more about going to be with friends or family and kicking off the holiday season! The shopping is a side benefit but as John so astutely noticed ..it's almost all women:).

"The Magic of Christmas"  Junior League Affair in Austin is a reminder that Christmas will be here before you know it. A great time to pick up some unique gifts and support the Junior League.

Good morning, Dorie. It seems as if they are rushing Christmas. It really seems as if Christmas has turned into a money making holiday and has lost its real meaning...

Good morning Michael,

For 36 years the Christmas Affair has been scheduled for the Thursday before Thanksgiving. It's the biggest fun raiser the Junior League so they can fund all the charities in time for Christmas. It's an event everyone looks forward to with great expectation because they out do themselves each year with a different theme. It's a fun day to spend with special friends and family and to get yourself in the mood for the Holiday season! It is primarily a "girls" event and like a fun ritual that the holidays would not be the same if it wasn't attended. It's always marked on every female's calendar....I'm just saying.....

Dorie - I love decorating for Christmas inside and out! The more white lights, the better. While my husband is Jewish(hence the name Ginsberg), I am Christian and when we moved to the neighborhood 4 years ago, some were pretty surprised when they saw all the wreaths, bows, window swags and lights - I thought it was funny. Moreover, no one loves Christmas more than my husband -lol!

The Christmas Affair is just in time to help with decorating and shopping.. not too soon and not after everyone has already purchased.  The Tea Room sounds like a great place to meet friends while there too.
