Kit has been rather upset about the end of Downton Abbey earlier this year. She’s watched the DVD’s over and over again, but she hates the fact that there will be nothing new. I suggested that instead of being upset, perhaps she should throw a party with a Downton theme to it and have a good old fashioned day of pretend. She thought it sounded like a good idea and decided to give it a try.
She was busy making sure everything was ready. Lots of cookies, sandwiches and other goodies were set on the table to eat. And of course tea, and she decided to set out some lemonade as well just in case someone didn’t like tea. Doesn’t it look wonderful?
After everyone arrived, Kit said a few words to welcome everyone. “I’m so happy that all of you could join me for tea today, everyone looks so nice all dressed up. Enjoy your day!”
Alya, Louisa and Marie-Grace checked out the tables and chose where they wanted to sit.
Raynia was so happy that the trip she and Evil Twin made happened to coincide with the tea so she could come. She borrowed Felicity’s dress just for the occasion.
Louisa said she was happy to be invited because not only was it fun, but she got to wear her pretty summer dress one last time before it got too cold.
Alya was impressed with all of the different foods there were, especially the deviled eggs.
Before everyone left, Kit wanted to make sure I took pictures of everyone dressed up.
Later that night, Raynia and Shivan were hanging out in Alya and Shivan’s room, getting ready for bed.
“That was really fun!” said Raynia. “Now when I get home, I’m going to have to watch Downton Abbey again so I can see how we did with our etiquette.”
“Try living here with Kit, I swear she has it on a 24 hour loop!”
