Victorian Tea Garden wins the prize at the Picnic in the Park

On Sunday, October 6, the City of Savannah hosted “Picnic in the Park”.   This is an annual event in Forsyth Park (just across from our B&B) and this year’s theme was “Celebrating the Arts”.  Of course, the Victorian Neighborhoods Association (VNA) had an amazing presentation and their display for the event was titled “Mary Telfair…Celebrating the Arts in her Tea Garden”.  The display was designed around an 1872 Victorian Tea Garden.   The judges were blown away and the VNA won first prize!  Park Avenue Manor innkeepers Maurice Norman (VNA President) and Glenn Gaylord (VNA Treasurer) were not in costume, but did assist in the production.  In addition, the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra performed well into the evening.  Residents and Visiting Guests alike enjoyed the free outdoor experience.  Here are some pictures of the event.
