Who: Juleanna Glover, Elizabeth Glover, Kristin Glover, Christopher Reiter, Pepper Watkins
What: The “night before the night before Christmas” cocktail party
Where: Juleanna Glover’s Kalorama townhouse
When: Friday, December 23, from 8 PM on
Why: With Christmas Eve falling on Saturday, Friday was left for travel, last-minute shopping, and one more holiday party. That’s why the Glover sisters and their men pulled together for this chance to be with friends—that, and they love to give parties. Few people entertain with as much enthusiasm for the act of socializing, especially Juleanna. She was a relaxed hostess, even though in 48 hours she would be off to Spain with Christopher and their children.
The menu: Lemon meringue vodka martinis, sparkling wine, sushi, cheese, fruit, cookies, cakes, and candy
