You are Cordially Invited
The Annual Lace and Sabers Magnolia Ball
March 17, 2012
I will be hosting my annual dance on March 17th in Waco, Texas at the historic Earle-Harrison House. The setting will be in the garden under a tent overlooking the beautifyl views. Dancing will be held from 7 to 11 PM and music will be provided by "The Sweet Song String Band". You will walk into a setting right out of a magazine with crystal, candles, and beautiful tables. A light buffet will be served along with cake, punch, coffee, and water. We will eat and dance and have a merry time waltzing, reeling and such.
During the day ladies will watch a demonstration of cooking in the old kitchen using all the tools of the day to prepare sweet dough cobbler, cucumber sandwiches, and fresh veggies, for you to snack on during our ladies tea in the old house itself. We will visit and chat about the times at hand, and if anyone would offer a demonstration of the period etiquette, dress, or customs they may do so. It will be a leisurely time until 3 PM when you will retire to prepare for the dance.
Since the buffet will be a light fare you may want to have a small dinner prior to the dance at 7 PM, it is your choice, but if you know me I usually have plenty to eat. Accommodations in the area are varied. You may choose to stay at the Clarion which is just down the street on 4th Street, The Fairfield Inn on Lakeshore is also another nice hotel and not far. Once you send in your reservations I will forward information on hotels to you so you may choose.
In Waco you can visit many attractions during the day. Gentlemen may want to do these while we cook and chat. The Texas Ranger Museum is in Waco, There is a Mennonite settlement with furniture making demonstratins, crafts and a lot more. Several old homes are available for tours and The Ben Mc Coullogh home is right next door to our event. I have arranged for small guided groups to tour the Earle-Harrison home also at no cost to you. I will again forward information on all these places with your reservation confirmation.
Cost is $45.00 per person
