Mansfield Park: Dining Room

Lady Marjorie of Cecilia deLisle Manor and others of you are famished from your journey and head straight into the Dining Room for some appetizers and ginger peach punch.

Miss Kallie of Paisley Hill Manor reaches for a canape at the buffet table. She notices Lady Bertram across the table with pug underfoot, of course. They exchange pleasantries. We wonder what they speak of ???

The Duchess Throuthehaze of Arborn Abbey is seated with Mr Henry Crawford. He looks like he is being his charming self with smiles and flirtations. Maria looks upon the couple with an annoyed look behind her fan.

Out of the corner of your eye you spy: beautiful candlesticks on the mantelpiece


Dinner will be served shortly. Lady Charlotte has catered the event and we are in for a treat!

Will you know where to sit? Which utensil to start with? If you need to brush up on Regency etiquette you may want to consider reading this...
