Every year the group that I organize in Historic Annapolis has a small garden party to socialize with each other in a more relaxed environment, and interpret at the Paca House & Gardens.
We have been interpreting the year 1772 as we are leading up to the 250th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence of 1776. We will see that 250th in 2026!
The day started off cold as I woke up to ice on my windshield! It gradually warmed up to a beautiful 72 degrees, and walking in the gardens was pleasant. The site was so pleased with our presence, and we filled the gardens with 18th century life!
As usual, we have photos! The above photo is of our food table before more was added. It was a wonderful balance of savory and sweet, and included lots to drink.

For those who want to know about what I am wearing - the saqueback gown was made using IKEA fabric sheets/comforter cover that I sent to Verdanta on Etsy. The cap was made by Fashion's Revisited also on Etsy. The umbrella was by Barrington Brolly. My shoes were handmade by Kevin Garlick in an avocado green leather. All jewelry made by me.
