The 2017-2018 Parties for the Necklace are coming – Each Wednesday, from now until the official Parties Kick-off Event, we’re posting a sampling of the parties offered. Each week we’ll highlight 2-3 different parties, so be sure to check back. Here’s our second week’s sampling (if you missed our Week 1 Preview, click here) –
June 3, 10am – It Happened in Peter Rabbit’s Garden! Mother-Daughter Tea
Peter Rabbit has a special garden right in Redlands, and mothers and daughters and grandmothers and granddaughters are invited to be the special guests for tea and posy planting. The little girls will wind their way to the delightful greenhouse to plant their very own flower to take home while the big girls get to discover the secrets of how to create a spectacular dinner table. All this is followed by a delicious luncheon in the garden. Enchanting, civilized, wondrous – this special event will make you the absolute favorite with your daughter, granddaughter or niece – or all of them!
Location: 815 Robin Hood Lane, Redlands
Limit: 24 guests
Cost: $55 adult, $45 member; $20 child (5-10 years)
Hosts: Anneli Pendley, LaVonne Newmann, Gail Smith
July 4 – Sizzlin’ Fourth of July – Gour-micnic and Fireworks on a private deck over Redlands Country Club.
Historic Redlands Country Club offers its own fireworks show every Fourth of July. What better place to enjoy it than on a deck overlooking the club! This is your opportunity to be wowed and awed by the beautiful display and feted with an un-equaled “Gour-micnic” before the show, all at the perfect location – the deck at the home of Dennis and Carol Shearer on Rossmont Drive. This won’t be your average burger and chips picnic, either!
Location: Rossmont Drive
Limit: 25 guests
Cost: $120, $110 members
Hosts: Dennis and Carol Shearer, RC Party Crew
Eyeballs in your cocktail, spooky-looking guests (or are they really guests???), creepy-crawly things on small plates for dinner, and a good old-fashioned horror movie, if you can stand it. Todd and Judy Elder invite you into their home to celebrate Halloween, of course. Wear a costume, join in the games, enjoy a small-plate dinner, wine, the outdoor movie, and for sure, the signature eyeball juice cocktail. With your reservation, you’ll be able to get in – but, will you be able to get out?!
Location: 17 W Hilton Avenue
Limit: 35-40 people
Cost:$120, $110 member – OR, BUY THE WHOLE PARTY NOW FOR $4,000.
