Join us as we travel back in time to the turn of the century, to an elegant country resort a short carriage ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city (which at that time extended only as far north as 14th Street).
We will begin the night with an informal reception, where banquet guests can enjoy delightful spiced punch (sponsored by Boukman Rhum) and a guided tour through the garden and beautifully preserved mansion. At 8pm, we open the doors to the secret candlelit ballroom and invite you to a lavish and historically accurate banquet, featuring multiple courses and wine. The meal will be accompanied by a short lecture on Victorian dining and the featured dishes from our chef and historical cooking expert Rebecca Leigh Silverman.
Ball-only guests can arrive at 9pm for their own reception, house and grounds tours. At 10pm, Retro Remix Orchestra kicks off the ball, and we all twirl in candlelight until 2am.
Entertainment and activities:
- Retro Remix Orchestra - classic songs and current pop hits performed in orchestral and hot jazz arrangements, plus waltzes, quadrilles, and other period music - At 8:30 and 9:30pm: Edwardian fashion presentations with historical costumer John W. Richardson of As They Sew in France. Topics: Morning to evening in Edwardian dress / The rise & fall of the bustle - Hand-drawn fashion illustrations of guests by Anastasios Taso Megaris - Victorian parlor and card games played with authentic decks from mid-1800s through early 1900s - DIY amusements from turn-of-century books
1800s through 1919 ballroom, formal or military--or as close as you can get with modern formal. Men: tuxes or tails. Ladies: corsets and long gowns. Costume inspiration Pinterest board (not ours): http://bit.ly/1WvlVyB - and ours for banquet/ball/tea research: http://bit.ly/29n5fZm
About our chef:
Culinary historian Rebecca Leigh Silverman has over 20 years experience working in living history museums as an historic culinary expert. She specializes in period hearthside cooking and libations. When not cooking in the past, she's a Brooklyn based bartender, trying odd old recipes out on her modern day customers and talking about the perfect sazerac.
About our venue:
Constructed in 1799 as a carriage house for a 23-acre estate, and converted into the Mount Vernon Hotel in 1826, this stone building sits on land originally owned by Colonel William Stephens Smith, and his wife Abigail Adams Smith, daughter of John Adams. The hotel operated until 1833, at which point the house became the home for three generations of a New York City family.
