Wine and Whist with La Bonne Compagnie

Last night I had a few 18th century friends over for our first "official" gathering in costume.  Only a few could attend but we  had a nice evening with yummy treats and wine.  We also learned the game of whist which I'm sure we will play often at future events.  Here are a few pics from the night.

Great photos! We had a wonderful time, and look forward to many more :D It was a great way to break in my new costume, and start having fun with 18th century. Best wishes and thanks again!

We are reenactors, and often have our friends, in costume, to our home for 'teas', 'frolicks', yard parties, etc., and to 'raise an elbow' in our period taproom! We even had an authentic 18thc. wedding which I have currently been posting about!
Isn't is all such fun?!
