The Feast of Twelfth Night

We had an absolutely amazing time at our Twelfth Night Celebration. It was definitely an event of gastronomic delights and good company. There were three amazing courses, dancing, and a Whist. The event officially ended at ten o’clock. However, we were having so much fun that we wanted to continue the evening. One of our party, Connie, invited us to her historic home where we danced and played parlor games for another hour. It was a great night, and i think one of the best events the ORS has had thus far. Here are the pics and video.

My (insert colorful adjective of choice) computer alas will not allow me to view the clips of your songs. :( :( However, the photos are beautiful. What a gorgeous evening! And your dress! I think it is my favorite so far of all the ones you have shared. The color is beautiful and the style so flattering. You look so beautiful, as always!

Your gown is beautiful, and I love your hair. The height is perfect and the feather compliment the style really well. It gives me inspiration for some upcoming hair styles.

You look beautiful Lauren, that gown is so perfect for you! You make that era look far more flattering than it even seemed to me in illustrations. Your entertainment was very sweet, I had to smile at the pictures. :-)

My dear what a wonderful event your celebration turned out to be! Was this at your home? You have great surroundings for a period event. And yes, your dress and hair are absolutely perfect. Everyone looked fabulous! It seems were able to get friends to play the servants at dinner? Wow that was a nice thing to have. Cheers!

Angela,

I wish it were at our home. I wish our home was that lovely :-) It was at a historic home in West Linn that parties can rent out. :-) Thanks for your comments.

Just a question: what is the name of the dance? Do you have notes for it? (I'm collecting dances for an upcoming regency-event I am organizing with a friend and my husband.)
I would so much like to become aquainted with you in person! Please, please let me know if you ever plan to visit Gemany!
