I jumped at the chance to see not only the outside of Forest Park’s beautiful Jewel Box, but to also party inside it when my school hosted a formal at this venue. The Jewel Box is a greenhouse located in Forest Park. It was built in 1936 but was recently renovated & cleaned so that it could be rented out for receptions and parties. I was sure it looked beautiful during the day, but at night? Absolutely spectacular!
First thing I saw upon entering:
What’s a formal without playing a little dress-up?
I had a hella good time being a silly senior in a predominately freshman dance! I never went to these formals as a underclassman, so why not YOLO in my last year here? Honestly, I had a better time there as a senior than I would have had as a self-conscious little freshman. Because old people get away with everything, including busting out embarrassingly mad dance moves, right? No shame.
Thanks for reading!
