Welcome

A Royal Tea Party for Shondrea Sillie

A royal decree was sent out to invite all the female royalty to the high tea in honor of Shondrea.  Several months prior, Ray had promised her that he would host a tea party for her and some of her friends.  We wanted to be sure to make it authentic, and to add a few extra touches to make it even more special for the girls.  Fifteen girls attended and it was a magical day. Lord William Ray Fuller and Lady Joan Marie Fuller of Chaol Ghleann hosted the Royal high tea party for Lord William’s goddaughter Shondrea. Lady Joan made cookies for the special event. Lord William made the smoke for the tea pots to add a little touch for the young ladies.

High tea is a must for every young lady. To invite ladies across the land to join her and be hosted by a real Lord and Lady just adds to the event.

A list of the ladies that attended

Duchess Shondrea Scille of Coventry Marchioness Alexis Navarro of Regensburg Duchess Hadynn Mester of Bergen Baroness Carmella Almodovar of Collings Coountess Alinah Dominguez of Walsall Duchess Aurora Fish of Seville Duchess Ava Grace Fish of La Rochelle Viscountess Ivey Kalfs of Vichy Countess Makayla Sowards of Paisley Baroness Selah Lobinske of Bergamo Viscountess Eliana Dewlen of Karlsted Viscountess Laney Culver of Parma Countess Kayleigh Winstel of Kokkola Countess Kelsey Winstel of Dover Countess Cora Sowards of Montrose

Lord and Lady Fuller dressed in their royal garments for the event, and posed for photos in the royal dining room.
Each of the royal subjects and their mothers had opportunities for photos in the royal dining room, and even had the chance to have a photo with Lord Fuller.
Because it was a very special day based on fantasy, we had to add extra touches to make it even more special.  Ray made place cards for each of the girls with their official titles.  We used steaming teapots as part of the table decorations.  The girls couldn’t figure out how we made the teapots steam, and they wondered why the steam was cool instead of being hot like they expected.
All the young ladies wore their party best dresses.  We invited them to bring along their favorite doll or stuffed animal, too.  We had them tell a little bit about who they had brought with them.
Some of the attendees were Shondrea’s friends from school, some were from her dance class and some were friends of the family.  They were all so well behaved and acted like the royalty they truly are.
Joanie took time to explain the ceremony involved with high tea, including proper table etiquette.  Ray explained some of the royal titles that had been bestowed on the girls for the day. The girls went home with an extra bit of knowledge they hadn’t had before.
Petite scones were served on the layered castle in the background.
Lady Joan made petite scones, dainty sandwiches and cookies as the fare for the tea.  Some of the young ladies had never had hot tea prior to this day, so it was a new experience for them. The photo is from a high tea in England.
Lady Joan and the kitchen staff (well, maybe just Lady Joan) prepared the dainties for the day.  Everything was prepared in the royal kitchen on the premises, and all the details were done by hand by Lady Joan.
The Lord and Lady of the castle set and decorated the tables for the guests.  Lord Ray was in charge of most of the decorations.  Lady Joan served tea in china passed down from her royal family. 
Each girl in attendance was given a hand- made card thanking them for attending the tea party.  They needed a little momento of the day.
It took a little time to assemble the cards, but it was fun for us to know that they would be taking home something to remind them  of the tea party.  We have heard often since from mothers that their daughters were still talking about that day many weeks later.
The Lord and Lady of the castle were happy to host this grand tea party for all of the attendees.
