You are invited to a costume tea and dancing….

I, Sarah Wentworth Macpheadris extend an invitation to you and your friends for a special afternoon at
the MacPheadris-Warner House, Portsmouth, NH.
Saturday 13 June, from 11-3:00.
Period costume encouraged.
In your finest 18th, 19th or early 20th century attire, do come and celebrate my forthcoming wedding with an afternoon of tea and entertainment. My dear Mr. Jaffrey will not be on hand to greet you and sends his regrets. In lieu of his delightful repartee,
from 2 PM to 3 PM, the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) Boston Chapter, quite well-known in these parts, will demonstrate the latest in fashionable Scottish dance. All will be welcome to join in the gaiety.
If you do not partake in dance, please feel free to join in a spirited croquet match on our lawn.

I live in one of the finest early-Georgian brick houses in New England, c. 1716. I would not be too bold as to add that we are also among the best appointed in these northerly climes - our gardens are delightful, our murals powerful and our smalt chamber the envy of many. Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1960, we are well situated in downtown Portsmouth, near the mighty Piscataqua (and rather close to Maine).

Light refreshments will be served. The party is on our annual free admission day, but donations are always most welcomed. RSVP to Jeffrey Hopper, Warner House Steward at by 10 June. For additional information find us on Facebook or 

Our friends Master and Mistress Spencer have lovely images at
