What To Wear To A Cheese Ball

Monsieur Fromage

With Cheese Ball II just days away, the dairy set on social media has been chatting outfits. Since so many people have emailed about appropriate attire, I thought I’d pull together a quick post with some choice fashion selections from the last Cheese Ball, back in January 2012. Of course, you’re welcome to wear a tux or gown, but jeans and barn boots are welcome, too. So are berets, body glitter, antlers, and anything that puts you in a cheese-loving mood.

Below, you’ll also find the schedule for the night of Cheese Ball II this Saturday, January 18. In addition to building a giant cheese board, we’ll be celebrating with door prizes, a roving ice cream cart, a cheese auction full of fabulous donations, and a midnight coronation of the King and Queen of Curd.

All proceeds from the ball and auction will go to Sue Miller of Birchrun Hills Farm to seed her upcoming Kickstarter campaign to build a cheese cave. That’s why we’re calling this year’s ball a “Cave Raising.” The outpouring of magnificent auction donations has been overwhelming, from cheese baskets to gift certificates from cheese retailers, local farms, and restaurants around Philadelphia.

Look for a full list of auction items later this week!
