Returning Heroes is an extra-special ball, because it is the only ball of the year at which period attire is required. It creates a really fantastic aesthetic for the evening, in addition to the friends old and new that were present. Enough rambling, to the pictures! I can't claim credit for any of these-they were taken by Antonia, and you can see more on her blog if you so desire.
