Victorian Christmas Tea 2016

Earlier this month Carolyn held a lovely tea at the beautiful row house she and her husband rent in downtown Washington, DC. The theme of the event was Victorian Christmas. People wore a variety of costumes–1840s, 1870s, 1880s, and 1890s. They all looked perfect amongst the décor of the house. Carolyn outdid herself with the food. The number of delicious dishes and baked goods was amazing. Thank you Carolyn for a wonderful afternoon!

I love all the decorations in Carolyn’s house.

I re-wore my red silk early 1880s natural form gown that I made back in 2010. Still fits!
