Sunday Regency Picnic

Went to Riversdale Mansion Museum on Sunday for our regency picnic and tour. It was definitely the best day to be out and about. I got the opportunity to meet a lot of new people and reunite with friends I've met at a previous event The outside temperature was perfect (not too hot, but sunny); overall, it was fun and pleasant experience.

The tour began in the foyer of the mansion and led into the salon. I have been there twice before, last year so I knew what to expect. However, I was still in awe about the beauty of the room and a few new surprises that popped up this spring. 

The green paint is a reproduction of the original. I love the color and want to find fabric that matches.

The items on the table were children's doll clothes, knitted wool socks, and a book. 

Actual teacups from Mrs. Calvert. If i could find china like that in that exact color, that would be awesome. 

All of the foods were hand-grown and handmade right there in the kitchen. 

This gentleman proposed to his beloved, the day before. But for photography purposes, I requested that he'd do it again. 

She said "yes" :) 

Congrats to the new couple

That's all for now. Next event, is Battle of St. Leonard's Creek.
