Room Description
The Mercury room is taking up the VonHelson's private indoor pool, decorated in a tasteful tropical setting. The VonHelson twins truly spared no expense when it came to location decoration [aka, working Narumi like a mule until everything was perfect whee ]. So if anything's broken or doesn't match, blame her! >D Beach balls litter the pool, there's even a section of sand with a beach blanket and umbrella set up! For music, there's a small stage set up for a live band to play, and in front of it, an area's been cleared to serve as a dance floor. Across the pool, a bar has been set up with delicious treats and drinks, free for attendees. [Mercury] will be attending the bar for today and tomorrow. Tables and chairs have also been set up for chatting and general lounging about. Our hostess, Nenya, is sitting on a life guard's chair, making sure that our most esteemed guests are behaving. Don't make her get off that chair!
