A Downton soiree!

As I mentioned in a post earlier today, I had a little party with friends while we enjoyed the premiere last night. I don’t know about other photographers but usually when I’m entertaining myself, the last thing I want to do is drag out my camera. I wish I’d snapped a few photos of my guests in their Downton accessories (some great fascinators, handbags and broaches), but I did get a handful of images. I’ve included a few along with some recipes. Enjoy!



Thanks to Paula Deen for the recipe for Apple Charlotte.



When I asked my twitter friends for advice on what to serve, someone suggested Dowager Humble Pie. That got me to thinking and I found this recipe for Blueberry, basil & goat cheese hand pies on Pinterest.


I even wore a fascinator.

Sophisticated photos that stand the test of time.
