The butler guides you into a hallway of gilded walls and a grand staircase that seems to elongate further back. But before reaching the landing of the stairs you are guided to the left towards a set of white double doors that open to a dining room. Instead of its usual one table set, you find two parallel of each other in front of the fireplace. The Boscawen family, Viscount Hugh Boscawen, Viscountess Diana Boscawen, Caroline and Sarah welcome you as you enter the room with smiles. You are guided to one of the tables:
Table 1: Headed by the Viscount Hugh Boscawen at one end and his daughter Sarah at the other.
Table 2: Headed by the Viscountess Diana Boscawen at one end and Caroline at the other.
Everyone settles at a table ((of your preference, next to anyone you prefer)) and the meal begins.
-First Course: Spring Soup-
-Second course: Roasted beef, potatoes and steamed vegetables-
Third course: Salad, and Charcuterie boards of cheese, meat slides, fruits and some cookies.
The Viscountess will announce that the greater dessert will be served later in the evening at an entertainment room before the meal is finished.
After the dinner the family members encourage you to join them in one of several after dinner activities they will do while Diana sets some desserts and punch for any late appetite.
Viscount Hugh Boscawen will state he is retiring for a moment to have cigar and brandy at his studio if anyone wishes to join him.
Viscountess Diana Boscawen also invites anyone to join her. She enters what can be described as a nice ball room that has been set up with a few comfortable seats, and a large table is being arranged with a cake, her famous rum cakes, a punch bowl that was made tropical style with fruit juice and rum and some pastries, along with silver ware, dessert plates and glasses. Anyone can serve themselves whatever they wish and take a seat, make conversation with the Lady as they wish. There is a pianoforte on the corner and there are two violin players that were invited to play – at the moment you enter they are resting but can take any request.
Sarah enters a drawing room near the front entrance of the home. It is a comfortable room of cream color, some comfortable seats, a fireplace, and some nice windows overlooking the front garden. A pianoforte awaits besides the windows. After making some conversation Sarah is persuaded to play the pianoforte and entertain but she is amicable to yield the instrument to whoever wishes. There is an extra chair and music stand for any other musician with any other instrument. Two love birds were already in the room within a cage that is kept by the fireplace for their warmth. A beautiful cocker spaniel of brown color rest in a pillow at the end of a long couch.
Caroline will leave the dining room and invite any friend who wishes to join her in a walk along the hall of Thregothnan house. Walls of pretty wall paper, chandeliers and paintings upon up where she can point to her favorite pieces. Besides some of the European style pieces, there are notable wood statues from the Westlands, stone figures of their Boriken home and even wall hangings of beautiful beading attached to macramé style strings. Caroline will eventually enter a room that appears as a game / billiard room where she will encourage people to relax before her mother calls them into the ball room.
The butler or a maid will announce to your room that the desserts are set up in the ballroom by the Viscountess and any of the family members who were with you will invite you to join them there for some final conversation until whenever people wish to retire. Sarah and the violin players will be opened to perform and entertain. There are enough seats for people to rest, take any last dessert or punch as they wish. The four family members will make sure to be spread wide enough to converse with all guests and continue any conversations that began during the intermediate time people waited right after dinner. At some point the Viscountess will be encouraging some of the young people to do a bit of dancing for fun since, they should all be in practice for when they all see themselves in London on the following days.
Whoever wished to express they rsvp and accepted an invitation to sleep over in Tregothnan House to avoid late night traveling can say so at the end as there was plenty of space and a few guest cottages.
