Between the actual skis on the Ski Chalet display, the bright red glittering Ugg boots, the s'mores and the introduction of several new hot toddies, guests were transported to a wintry lodge complete with bright snowy branches, reindeer antlers-and skis.
The fete, put on by Gilt City, was preceded by a media preview of wonderful warm winter cocktails:
Hot Apple Butter Rum
Rum, Apple Butter, Spices
|Four drinks photos by Geoff Chessman for W. Washington D.C.|
Vodka, Pumpkin Cider, Spices
Scotch, lemon peel, sugar, hot water
Jameson, brown sugar, cream
Guests who knocked themselves out on the Kinect winter sports games appreciated the Bliss massages--all guests scored a swag bag full of Bliss products and a brownie bite. The best touch was that the festivities took place high above the city. We were all treated to amazing views of the White House, the Washington Monument and even the blazing spires of the Air Force Memorial off in the distance. Let it snow!
