Christmas Decorating: Day 10: Martinis at the Jazz Club

Put on your tap shoes because tonight we are going to celebrate.
It's the 10th day of Christmas Decorating,
so there are lots of lords needing to leap about.
They may as well do it in style, at the Jazz Club.

Those little gnomes will create mischief, I suspect.
Do you think they could tell us where the club is?
It's the Lords' Martini Jazz Club that we are searching for.
Ah, here we go.
The wreath is certainly a clue to the entrance,
this has to be it.
And here it is.
They have poured us a couple of red cocktails
to get into the Christmas spirit.
Looks like the lords are already getting into the swing of things.
They'll be leaping about in no time.
Just like this fellow.
Let's have a look around the club to see
how they have decorated
for Christmas.
You can take your St Germain martini with you as you wander.
Why, it's a minimalist kind of a Christmas tree,
and it's hung with stags, rams, keys to the lord's manor
& a very slinky Barbie or two in skin tight black leather.
The fairy has just popped off the red carpet,
ready to sing Santa Baby before she takes her place at the top of the tree.
All that dancing has made me hungry for dinner.
The polished Christmas table setting is so elegant,
set with high white candles, copper cutlery
& silver ice buckets.
And don't the lords look dashing in their black tie suits?
After dinner, there should be a game or two of chess going on,
being a tradition to play games at Christmas time.
Almost time to go,
but first we are each given a little present,
all wrapped in masculine colours of black, white & red.
No frilly ribbons!
{Instructions to wrap the black tie packaging here.}
And as we disappear into the evening,
already lit with silver stars,
we can bid farewell to the lords at the bar,
who are just settling in for the night.
Certainly a handsome lot,
these well dressed lords, aren't they?
In case you missed the earlier decorating themes, 
you can catch up here.
