Games

Let the (Regency) Games Begin!

Try your hand at some traditional Regency-era holiday games like Snapdragon—a daring activity that involves snatching raisins out of a bowl of burning brandy—or Hot Cockles, which is the perfect game for parties with both dames and dukes in attendance. Or, if you prefer something a bit milder, set up a craft station for your partygoers complete with white paper, scissors, glue and glitter for making homemade sparkling snowflakes. The paper snowflakes also make lovely holiday decorations!
