The Massachusetts Horticultural Society has opened up invites for a Downton Abbey-inspired garden party at Elm Bank Reservation on Rte. 16 on the Wellesley/South Natick/Dover line from 3:30-7pm on Sunday, Sept. 15. This event will support Mass Hort’s Garden to Table program.
Elm Bank’s gardens, plus vintage cars, professional cricket at tea time, hors d’ouevres and Pimm’s, beer and wine will be among the attractions.
Post-Edwardian era attire is encouraged, and contests for best costume and best hat will be held, with winners receiving luxury prizes.
Tickets are $125. More info here.
Whatever you do, though, don’t approach the party via Turtle Lane. The royalty living there will get very angry.
