Scarlett pinned her favorite signature-color brooch to the waist of her new party outfit. She’d seen it in a Variety story on the recent awards ceremony and bought it for her party.
Velma had come. Thank God, Velma had come. And with her usual exquisite attention to detail had planned a delicious menu, had it printed to tie in with the party invitations, and hired up-and-coming caterers for a fraction of what Scarlett had planned to spend. The first guests were arriving, happy to see their favorite hosts back in action.
