The Event of the Winter

Daisy recalled the build-up to the ball in her book, Life's Ebb and Flow, which she wrote in 1929.

"The fashion and beauty of London and the county gathered for pleasure. Neighbours had house parties, and the whole district was filled with the bustle of preparation. The ball was spoken of as 'the event of the winter.'"
