Wine & Whist March 2012 Event

Our private 18th century costuming group hasn’t been able to get together very much since we’re all so busy, but we managed to throw a little gathering together at the last minute.

On March 15, 2012, we attended an evening of wine, dinner, a game of whist, and strolling through the neighborhood for photos at a little pond.

It was a great time — two new members joined us, and although not everyone in the group could attend, we enjoyed ourselves.

Our hostess gave us some sweet party favors and provided delicious refreshments. After dining and chatting, we played whist and laughed. The evening went way too quickly, but we are hoping for more fun gatherings in the near future!

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them -- paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again. My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company. My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I'm up to with friends and family.

    I checked out the pictures. The beauty of the the table and the meal was exceeded only by the ladies who were present. What a fun time!

  2. It was a fun evening. One of the best moments: when you were all walking to the pond for photos and you passed that house with the two kids out front, and the one kid said to the other–in almost an adult voice–“I have no idea…”

    Not a bad way to spend a work night!

    The event looks wonderful and so much fun! You were a gorgeous group and your make-up is perfect!

  4. Thanks, everyone!

    @Merja: I’ve been considering some posts about the makeup I wear. I’m still trying some things out, and discovered a down side to it at this last event when I tried something new. I’ve had a lot of compliments on it, so I’m glad I’ve been testing it out and using it. I almost skipped it this last time, but at the last minute decided as long as I’m dressing up and people are taking photographs anyway…. might as well! 🙂
