Christmas ceception with the Mary Foundation

Wednesday, November 25th

Crown Princess Mary hosted a christmas reception at Amalienborg palace in Copenhagen for the Mary Foundations working partners and collaborators.

At the beginning of this week the Crown Princess hosted a Christmas reception with the Mary Foundation and their partners, which has become a really nice tradition. This event gives the opportunity to thank everybody who have been involved or have supported the foundation's work the past year and to wish everybody a merry Christmas. Representative were all invited to glögg and æbleskiver. Probably you have heard about both these thing, if you haven't don't worry I will tell you more about it. Glögg or glühwein (German) goes back to Germany. It's a very traditional hot drink made of among others red wine, snaps, brown rom, madeira, oranges, lemon, cinnamon, star anise etc. Æbleskiver is from Denmark and I'm not sure it gives an English translation. Translated it's 'apples in slices'. Danes love them and is the epitome of Christmas. Primarily they are made of pancake batter. Back in time it was slices of apples, which were then fried. Today 'Æbleskriver' are pan fried in a round shape and them they are eaten with either/or both jam or icing sugar.

The Crown Princess welcomed her invited guests at Frederik VIII's Palace around 3:00 pm. From the beginning the atmosphere was great. Everyone were in a good mood in the room. I'm sure they had all had a great time. One of the guests, who had traveled all the way from Chicago to attend the reception, was Professor and Ph.D. John T. Cacioppo. He is a member of the the Mary Foundation's expert panel working with loneliness. At the reception, representatives as the Lauritzen Betina Ipsen who support the Netwerk project, Marketing Manager of DHL Express Susanne Kristensen works with the Free of Bullying's Children relay project and project manager in TrygFonden Christoffer Elbrønd and communications officer in DBU Mikkel Minor Jensen important project partners in Klubfidusen attended.

First, I thought she was wearing a black dress, which was the only thing I did not expect. Suddenly I flipped my computer screen by an accident and I realized that it wasn't black but green -her dark green suede dress from Prada. It is differently not the first time we see this dress, but I took my quite a while to identify it even though it's from one of her favourite designers. Very appropriate of her to wear a dress in this colour. Perfect to celebrate Christmas and her co-workers. She even matched the wallpapers. Maybe I'm the only one who noticed this little detail about the wallpapers. I remember at least three times she was worn the dress. All three with great success. In 2013 when she and Frederik ,along with the rest of the family, attended a dinner at Hotel Admiral with the President and his wife of Slovakia, here, then again at Prince Nicolai's confirmation in the evening, here, and then last in 2014 when she attended the Ultra Gala show, here. With that one picture published where we see her feet, I think I know what pair of shoes she was wearing. A pair of beige Prada pumps, last seen on October 8th 2015 when Mary attended the Free of Bullying seminar, here. What do you think? Am I right about the shoes? Beige pumps would be a great choice. Of course you all noticed her new silver bracelet featuring green stones. Mary has several times worn bracelets like this, but I have never been able to identify the designer -if it's even the same one. I also see a pair of earrings, though I can't decide which pair she's wearing. And then that red/burgundy nail polish.
