Our December 1st event is coming up soon, so dust off your top hats and Regency bonnets, and get ready to have some fun! The official invitation will be forthcoming, but I wanted to give you a "heads up" about a few things. Most of all, I would like you to save the date! Our budget is based on at least 40 people attending. It should be a lot of fun and put you in the holiday spirit. We will have a delicious lunch, live music and an English Country Dance workshop. I have even heard a rumor that Jane, herself, is expected to make an appearance! Everyone attending will be entered to win a gorgeous Regency basket, and there will be a few available items at our silent auction. Of course, it takes a village to put on such an event, so if you would like to help, please keep reading for entertaining opportunities!
****I am in need of a host/hostess for each of 8 tables. These host/hostesses should come dressed as a character from one of Jane Austen's novels. Please contact me if you would like to host, and let me know which character you would like to be, as well!
****I will need volunteers for table decorations and set-up. Hosts may take it upon themselves to decorate their tables.
I will also need volunteers for clean up. If you would like to help with any of these things, please let me know.
Kelly and Alexandra, I will need 64 tea cups to put on the tables. Can you help with this? I can also contribute tea cups.
