By Ben Wood

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Nov 29, 2013

~~<p>Wo, ho ho! C.S. Wo &amp; Sons' huge furniture emporium kicked off the Christmas season Saturday night with its annual &quot;Home for the Holidays&quot; party that featured dazzling displays. The store was packed with kama&shy;aina mingling and chatting together in good cheer. Christmas caroling by <strong>John Rampage</strong>'s young Diamond Head Shooting Stars was a treat. Neiman Marcus' Visual Merchandising Team created holiday table settings that were displayed on both floors of the store. Neiman models in glamorous fashions glided through the crowd. Many of the women attending were also decked out in snazzy attire and heels. Food-tasting stations were by Superb Sushi. A martini bar augmented beverage stations. Diamond Head Theatre and the Typhoon Hai&shy;yan Relief Fund shared a portion of proceeds from the evening's store sales &hellip;</p>
<p>A PARTY to begin Immigration Judge <strong>Dayna Dias Beamer</strong>'s 59th-birthday celebrations was held Nov. 17 at a Tantalus home. Her birthday was Monday, but the party was held early when the <strong>Vladi&shy;mir Ossipoff</strong>-designed home, on the National and State Registers of Historic Places, was available. It was built for <strong>Howard</strong> and <strong>Betty Liljestrand</strong>. Attending Dayna's &quot;Sunday Sweet Soiree,&quot; thrown by her husband, <strong>Kapono Beamer</strong>, were U.S. District Court Judge <strong>Helen Gillmor</strong> and her husband, attorney <strong>John Gillmor</strong>, and Intermediate Court of Appeals Judge <strong>Alexa Fujise. Kanoe Miller</strong>, who danced hula for the Beamer Brothers (Kapono and <strong>Keola</strong>) decades ago in Waikiki before moving on to the Halekulani, was among the 40 guests with her husband, <strong>John Miller. Frank B. Shaner</strong>, who has spent many years in radio and is also an artist, attended. Chef <strong>Peter Foster</strong> catered. Kapono is now with Prudential Locations &hellip;</p>
