Free!  Lady Victoria is making an appearance.  Friends of Lady Victoria are welcome to attend the picnic, take photos, enjoy a relaxing summertime afternoon with friends!

What to Wear:

Ideally, everyone attending will be wearing Victorian/Edwardian Summer Whites, day attire.
If you are new to historical costuming and do not yet own “Summer White” attire, we encourage you to wear all white of any era as a dress, so that you will be comfortable with the group and can “fit in” better.

Ladies: Fine fabrics and costumes are always admired, it may be too hot for this type of garment, or you may not wish to subject your gowns to potential grass or dirt stains if you are walking about  Be advised…

Remember to bring a parasol in case you choose a location where there is sun.

Gents:  White shirt, dark pants (not jeans), perhaps a vest and a straw hat are totally appropriate.  Vest and straw hat are not required if you have not yet expanded your wardrobe to include some of these items; do your best to be “evocative of the era.”

What to Bring:

“Friends of Lady Victoria” should seek parking nearby either at the small lot near the lavatories, or over by the dog park.  Be prepared that what you plan to haul into the park might require you to use a small wagon or other device.

Items to consider bringing:
– Chair & small table, or blanket
– Picnic hamper with your own supplies, including food, drink, and appropriate china/silverware
– Hand fan to cool oneself
– Playing cards or table game
–  Parasol or table umbrella if your table is thus suited.

If you have interest in participating in the picnic and day’s activities, please RSVP in advance, along with your cell phone number, to:
LadyVictoria “at” SITUSeattle “dot” com OR IDEALLY,

This picnic is a Lady Victoria Presents Happening, NOT a SITU Event.

Lady V would like to know in advance a head count of how many will be attending.  She would also like to know you are coming so that she can look for you!!!

“Thank you for your interest and participation!

I look forward to receiving your RSVP and seeing you in person!”
