Victorian Garden Party Preparations!

Last week was a busy week here at work. On Sunday we hosted a Victorian Garden Party to raise money for the Milford Hospice. The party was held in the French formal gardens in front of the manor. Guests entered into the gardens and had the chance to watch a falconry show and try their hand at some archery. After walking through the gardens they could take a seat for champagne and afternoon tea. Most of the guests and all of the employees dressed up in period costume to go along with the theme. Below are pictures from a photo shoot I helped with two weeks ago to help promote the party. These pictures ended up in two county newspapers and one national newspaper! The party was a success for all and there are plans to make it even bigger next year!
