A Tea at Old Fort Niagara 1812 Style


Recently we enjoyed a Tea
with friends at
Old Fort Niagara

It was ever so lovely and delightful!


Ruth our Hostess
organized a marvelous
afternoon!!


She had to go to the Cook House to boil the water for Tea!




















All came together elegantly and perfect!!










And then the guests arrived








We all quickly became friends!!




and we enjoyed grand music









Soon the Gentlemen arrived














And we gave a clothing demonstration




It was great fun!!












After rest and leisure games.....



.....the men set off to war!















These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
 In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
 I have overcome the world.
                                       John 16:33

Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.

    What a lovely and elegant tea you had in this amazing place.
    The dresses and hats are so beautiful!
    I am curious about the two ladies at the window - what could've been so interesting that they had to climb up to see it!lol?
    Love the pretty lace parasols too :-)
    It looks like a wonderful day was had by everyone.

  10. Like-minded people getting together...I want to come!
    By the way I especially was delighted with the 2nd photo of the two girls looking out the window (one on a chair). It looked like something straight out of a movie promo.

  11. Hi my dear Linne,
    Adam and I just perused the photos together wishing we could be there! He would love to get us one Regency ensemble each and go to a Jane Austen ball, tea, etc.! Hopefully someday we will!
    Praying for your little doggie~
