Guest Blogger

Today I'm turning my blog over to Bronwyn, our youngest daughter and resident wood elf. She'll be sharing with you highlights from a delightful day with like-minded fair maidens.

1. Last Saturday was the best time ever. You see, I was invited to a French Medieval dinner, hosted by Meg, the one wearing the red vested gown. I might add she made that gown herself, out of a pair of Ikea curtains! How clever! Scarlet O'Hara would be so proud!

2. What really amazed me was how the girls really went all out with their costumes and hair! Not everyone wore Medieval clothes, but all were in period dress and looked absolutely beautiful.

3. Meg's mom, Mrs. L, set a beautiful table where we would sit and eat a yummy 7 course meal. Haha, one girl was joking that pretty soon we'd probably be holding all the food for this photo!

4. A few of us were meeting each other for the first time; being shy, I was slightly nervous. But because everyone was so friendly I felt immediately at ease. Our common interests resulted in some great conversations. Notice the gown worn by the girl sitting on the foot stool. That was sewn by my friend Fiona. It was gorgeous! You are going to help me finish my Narnia gown, right Fiona?

5. Two younger sisters were supposed to play the part of servants, but I think they had more fun playing imstead ;)

6. The youngest among us volunteered to be jesters. They told us some very funny jokes during dinner; one even played the guitar!

7. Mrs. L showed us how to make tussy-mussies and she also taught us the language of flowers. For instance, white roses meant "Enternal love" while scented geraniums meant "Preference". It's a very memorable keepsake for such a nice evening. Thanks, Meg!

I love that everyone entered into the spirit of the occasion. Full heartedly by the looks of it. I hope you had a lovely evening.

Bron, I am perfectly enchanted! What beautiful ladies all of you are, and what a memorable evening that was. Thank you so much for sharing it with us...I pored over every single picture and thanked God in my heart that there are still maidens in the world occupied in such gentle pleasures. (And you've made me feel that it's about time I hosted a party, hehe...)
And my interest is piqued regarding the Narnia gown. Is this a Queen Susan affair? :)
God bless you and I hope we'll see more Bronwyn on Curious Acorn!! :)

Jodi said...

Lanier, how did you guess?!?! It is Queen Susan's coronation gown from the first film. Thanks for checking out the post!

Love, Bronwyn

That looks like sooo much fun! I love that all of you have found one another. Having time period parties sounds like an absolute blast, totally you too! And those dresses are so gorgeous, all of those girls look wonderful. My favorite picture is where all of you are sitting or standing around the library fireplace - I could totally believe that you were in a different time. Great post, one of my favorites!
