A recent flight of fancy got me wondering  -  Is the  Garden Party Event a Steampunk celebration

  [ and should we let  garden variety folk  (non SP )   do it ]

With possibly a intrepid Colonial twist

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Absolutely -
in my case I might tend towards an "safari" or "alpineering" flavor which would allow me to wear either my safari sport coat or alpine climbing knickers ...

Refreshments should be light, perhaps fish or fowl, or light sandwiches ; fruit, cheese, and ice cream.

As events, I would definitely include croquet, but due to my outdoorsy bent I would have two separated areas, one for cards, and the other for archery or gallery-shooting. Squib loads only, easier on the ears. Unless we were able to include Prof Maxim in which case he could demonstrate his new fire-arm suppressor. :-)

Excellent suggestions . Yes it would be wisest  to keep the  various target sports  separated from the sitting sports.

 A safari location appeals with the wide open spaces and wild  surroundings.  I do have a peculiar penchant for  land rovers  and jeeps.

 Though and alpine location does lend itself to  mulled beverages  and nogs

 either way  cucumber sandwiches , fruited cakes,  wild game meats and light dairy desserts  would be the menu du jour

I suppose it is time for garden parties in your hemisphere; for us it's a bit too wet and windy at the moment! But yes, I think a garden party would be an excellent Steampunk event, with lashings of cake and tea-duelling in the late afternoon sun. And to add a mad-scientist twist, tables driven by clockwork so they could walk themselves onto the lawn.

Yours,
Miranda.

Wadayamean, meh, Chicar?! Does none of that look splendid to you?!

I, too, feel that these events should come back in fashion.
Suddenly, I have been overwhelmed with calm.... Smiley

It certainly seems like a good candidate for an idea for a steam punk event.

 Yes. Here in the antipodes we  are entering the summer holiday season.  We don't have White Christmases,  though it does always rain on Christmas day.  And we do all stuff ourselves to bursting with  hot roasted food  and rich desserts .   Our colonial  party food  remains the old  standard favorites from the old countries.  Sausage rolls , club sandwiches,  bacon & egg pie,  small cakes, other assorted savouries and dainties.

 some  robust tea duelling  and teapot racing  might help  work that off.

I think Mistress Sophie Parrot, from the Marvelous Vintage Tea Party in Austin (also one of our customers). might have something to say about this. Basically she organizes garden parties and similar gatherings....

I think I had shared her website before:

We don't have White Christmases,  though it does always rain on Christmas day.

Much the same here...  Sad

Garden parties/ punknics have been a Summer calender fixture for the West Midlands Steampunk Assembly for the last... five or six years (possibly longer).  So much so in fact that a Summer without one just doesn't feel right!

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

A garden party would seem ideal for a steampunk event.
