18th Century (Indoor) Picnic

Earlier this summer, Maggie and I wanted to host a picnic on the grounds of a local house museum, Montpelier Mansion. However, much like the Victoria Day Party a couple weeks previous, we were rained out. So instead, we switched to having a party in the function room of Janine’s apartment building. (Thank you so much, Janine!) Despite the weather and the last minute location change, we had a great turnout. It was a lovely afternoon of snacking and socializing. I especially appreciated the opportunity to hang out with several people I had not seen in quite a while. Thank you to everyone who came!

Before it started raining, we were able to get a group photo on the outdoor patio. The top row from left to right is Marianne, Mike, me, Britney, and Britney’s husband. The middle row is Terry, Janine, Kristen, Carolyn, and Glynnis. The front row is Nastassia, Kenna, Maggie, and Chelsea (with her daughter).

Janine with Maggie’s daughter. (I’m making an effort to hold more events where folks can bring their children. I thought that would be a nice change, since several of our group have recently had babies.)

Mike found a nook where he could take a nice series of portrait photos. I posted some information on how we got these effects here.

We finished the day with this fun set of photos of the ladies who were wearing chemise gowns. (No alcohol was involved–only sparkling cider! We were just having that much fun!)
