The party of the year?

December 10 is the day when the Nobel prize winners get their prize from the Swedish king in Stockholm. It's a long, pretty boring ceremony, except for the winners I guess.

It's more fun to see the live TV from the Nobel party, that takes place in one of the most beautiful buildings in Stockholm, Stadshuset (the City Hall). All night Swedish Television will have live reports from the party (well, just like they do from the formal ceremony earlier during the day).

The Swedish King, the Queen and the Crown Princess, the Princess and the Prince are there, celebrating with all the winners and their families. The big talk is about the dresses the women are wearing and the food they will get served.

If you would like to have a little mini Nobel party dinner, you can always make reservations at the restaurant in the basement of the Stadshuset, Stadshuskällaren (actually "basement" might be a bit of an understatement - check out this picture). Here they serve food from the Nobel menus all year long.

And you don't have to wear your ball gown.

Unless you want of course.

Today I'll have to check out all the photos in all the big news papers online. It is so much fun checking out the dresses. Even more fun to read what the fashion experts have to say , like Sofi Farman and Ebba von Sydow.
