Upcoming Tea Party - Early Valentine's Soiree!!!


Shirley Plantation

No Tea Party in January here on Colonial Quills but in February we'd like to cordially invite our Followers, and other guests, to attend our:


Valentine Soiree
on 
February 7th
on 
the 
Colonial Quills 
website
(Virtual site is Shirley Plantation 
in Charles City, Virginia!)

Did you know?  AMC filmed many scenes from their upcoming television series "Turn" at Shirley Plantation?  And Shirley is celebrating its 400th anniversary!

Attire:  Formalwear, come in character. Servants will need to report to the ancillary buildings for instructions.

RVSP:  Right here!

Special: Several lovely giveaways including gifts from Lady Cessalye's gift shop, an antique reproduction blue and white china sugar bowl from Yorktown Victory Center, and a copy of Roseanna White's novel, which shares similar elements as Alexander Rose's "Turn" but is a Christian fiction.

  2. I am eager to include my RSVP for February 7, dear ladies. The ice has abated and it will fortunately be a lovely sunny day for sure, inside as without we will find. I have noted it on my calendar. half-Irish Kathleen ~ Lane Hill House

    1. Pretty sure I'll be using my Noritake but I saw that Mrs. Carter has the same lovely Cluny Lace china that I once owned (wish I still did but I gifted it to a good friend!) Wearing my new gown, too!

    1. What about a lovely teal, that you so favor, Kathy? And dress to the nines--this is virtual (no telling if we are actually in our jammies, though, okay?)

    1. I think so, too, Maxie, even though some of my friends make fun of me! I used to love throwing real live parties before my RA got the better of me! But we'll have a super time here!!!
