Ladies and gents dressed to impress at the elegant sponsor party for the Junior League of Lafayette’s Tinsel and Treasures Holiday Market 2011 held at River Oaks. Tables were topped with stunning peacock feathers and hydrangea arrangements created by Swanky Productions, echoing this year’s T & T peacock theme. JLL member Amy Courville was decked out in bright green with a festive peacock feathered belt for the occasion. River Oaks Chef/Owner Brian Blanchard served up an elegant buffet with antipasto, hot hors d’oeuvres and fresh fruit and pastries for dessert. Guests mingled while sipping wine and sugar-rimmed strawberry martinis. Looking especially snazzy at the soirée were JLL President Christa Billeaud in a bright coral shift, Allison Howard in a dazzling orange, aqua and green wrap skirt, April Gaar looking cool in white accented with eye-catching turquoise earrings and Melanie Martin in an exquisite dress suit with a precious purse purchased at T & T, of course!
