Edwardian Tea Party: August 2015

IMAG0454IMAG0459IMAG0460Over 60 ladies (and a few brave men!) attended a lovely afternoon in the elegant surroundings of the house, enjoying a tasty selection of sweets and savouries reminiscent of the tea parties of yesteryear.

Guests entered into the spirit of the occasion, wearing a colourful array of hats and fascinators. There were prizes for the three hats judged to be the best, and a number of guests went away happy with a superb selection of raffle prizes.

The guests were entertained by Jessica Stoja on piano in the drawing room of the house, which was open for the guests to wander through the beautiful interiors of the rooms.

Rolls Royce Bentley Concours d’Elegance

The Rolls Royce Bentley Concours d’Elegance was held at Ormiston House recently. A variety of cars from the last 90 years were on display. Two of the oldest were built in 1926 and it was clear to see that the owners had put many painstaking hours of hard work and love into their restorations. The weather was fantastic and many of the entrants took advantage of this warm winter day and had beautiful picnics set out. One picnic setting stood out (see the photos). Set up at the back of their car, it looked so pretty and inviting with a table cloth and napkins embroidered with the car registration number! Visitors enjoyed the Devonshire teas and being able to inspect the cars on display in the sunshine. Congratulations to the prize winners!

Vintage Car Club day

Ormiston House recently hosted the Vintage Car Club day. The house was treated to a wonderful array of old cars. The sun turned to rain but that didn’t deter the many visitors who came to enjoy a walk around the cars and a Devonshire tea under the verandah. The atmosphere was enhanced by wonderful nostalgic singing. Everyone enjoyed viewing the old cars on display and the owners still managed to have their picnics despite the weather!

Autumn Garden Concert

Last Sunday Ormiston House celebrated autumn with it’s first Garden Concert. The concert took place amongst the trees which provided plenty of shade for everyone. We were entertained by bagpipes and Scottish country dancing followed by solo performances by the very talented group Collusion Music. Everyone was so impressed with the vocals and musical talent of this group. It was a resounding success and a wonderful way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon in the Redlands.

If you missed this concert, Ormiston House will be presenting a second Garden Concert later in the year.
