Welcome to the La Fratta Midsummer Party!
Unfamiliar with how site-wide events are run? Then jump right down to the rules!

Who are the La Frattas?
The La Fratta family are an upper-class family residing in Italy. They are well known for their high influence, fashion, and opinions on many marketing opportunities. The party is to be hosted by Michelle La Fratta.

Some recommended contacts and guests for the event are: Aristocrats, Journalists, Ministry officials.

What's the dress code?
"Black tie" is often appropriate, however this year's dress theme for the party is A Midsummer's Night. Fairies, nymphs, dryads, and other magical creatures are highly anticipated outfit ideas.

So what does this place look like?
The party takes place at the La Fratta Summer Villa in Lake Como, Italy.


Courtyard:
Spacious area, stone-flooring, surrounded by Romanesque pillars that hold up a large capital that runs the length and width of the courtyard. These open to the other areas of the villa.

Garden:
Tall shrubs and winding like the gardens at Versailles. There are many magical plants here and somewhere deep inside there is a sphinx that Emilie denies is there. The pride of Emilie La Fratta.

Beach:
From the courtyard or the gardens, this is a private shoreline for the La Frattas along Lake Como. Accessible via multiple stone staircases down to a dock.

Games Tables:
Close to the pool area (west from the courtyard; magicked so no one falls in). Dealers from Paris and Monaco, 5 total

Bar:
Along the northern end of the courtyard, mahogany counters, open bar, and champagne flutes being refilled every few minutes to be served on floating trays.

How long is the party?
Festivities promptly start at 7 PM and ends at 2AM.
