Wait, your wife did what?!
"I'll bleed wherever I damn well please!" She shouted, scowling at him. As if to prove it, she uncovered her nose and shook her head back and forth like a dog attempting to dry its fur of water. Little droplets of blood rained on the sidewalk all willy-nilly. Billie Farrow in A Good Dusting

Who: Guardian Peter Salvage shall be hosting in honor of his ward.

UCAB 7+ are invited.
MCAB 8+ are invited.
WCAB are not invited, but shall be invited to a quiet, less grand after party that he prefers to host for his household staff as a thank you for putting up with his lavish tastes.

Cost: N/A
Where: His London home, which is enchanted to be larger on the inside.
Why: His ward has finally had all the education she is going to get from India, and it is time for her to enter into English society. Perfect opportunity to start working on the master plan.
When: May 3rd, 1890
Décor has been brought in from the finer parts of India, and their house chef has prepared Indian dishes that Miss Dantés's staff has sworn up and down to be authentic. A professional animal specialist has even been brought in, to accompany an occamy. It is highly discouraged to approach too closely, any guests who try will be directed elsewhere. Flying carpets have even been supplied in order to get a nice look at the temporarily charmed ceiling that looks like the night sky. The floor has been charmed to look like a clear pond with water lilies 'floating around'.

What: Trading Faces Masquerade
Who: Emrys is hosting for, basically, UC people he thinks are interesting. This is a small, exclusive event; please ask me if you want your character to attend so I can make sure they fit the profile. ^^
Cost: N/A
Where: Emrys' House, Bristol
Why: Mischief & Fun.
When: May 8th

On arrival, guests are asked to give one hair. Once all the guests have arrived, these are added to individual cups of polyjuice and dispersed more or less randomly. They will be sorted by gender, but it's possible for one to get misgendered or for a random pet hair to sneak in if you like. The first hour of the proper ball they'll be disguised as other guests, and the second hour will return to their normal faces. If they're around for hour three, there will be a second round of randomized polyjuice. By hour four he's kicking everyone out.

What: Wedding of Reginald Hoggle and Daphne Thomas
Who: Friends/family/etc of the above, general society types.
Cost: N/A
Where: Wales [the Thomas home]
Why: Lynn wanted an interesting open thread. >>
When: 2 May

Reginald Hoggle is set to take his third wife on Saturday afternoon, however the soon-to-be Mrs. Hoggle is incredibly superstitious and absolutely refuses to walk down the aisle due to several ill omens. After about thirty minutes of awkward waiting the father of the bride will usher the guests into the reception in the hopes of staving off rumors with copious amounts of free booze. Guests can loiter on the lawn garden-party style for as long as they want to keep drinking, basically.

At one point, the bride may be seen trying to escape through a second-story window, which won't go well in her wedding dress. At another point the mother of the bride will go into hysterics. The adult daughter of Mr. Hoggle and his first wife is going to be catty as hell about this and will only get more vocal the longer she drinks.

Reginald Hoggle will decide to postpone the wedding after a few hours and announce this to whatever guests are remaining. The wedding may or may not ever actually take place.

What: Wizarding Horticultural Society Annual Flower Show -also known as The Great Spring Show

Why: It's an annual show - https://youtu.be/VAVuckzokz4
When: 28th of May

Miss Agatha Aghern, a wealthy, and slightly mad, spinster who has dedicated her whole life to the WHS has seen her status within the organisation drop in recent years! She is determined to claw it back this year by taking home the top prize! She attempted to create enchanted topiary of animals to be placed in her competition garden for this years event.  She couldn't manage it, and instead of trying something else, she bought 2 old elephants, a chimp, and a giraffe from a rather shadey zoo and applied a topical concotion to make them to look like bushes.  She then stunned them.  However, her spell work isn't what is used to be, so the stunning spell will be wearing off sometime around mid day! AND!  Whatever potion she rubbed onto them is highly transferable and its getting everywhere!

magical set by mj!

Lilypie Maternity tickers

What: The Golden Hour Ball
Who: Any respectable member of Society has been invited. Martha Abbott is a strict blood purist, so unless the UCMB has direct ties to the Abbott family they're not invited. MCMB are not invited.

UCPB/UCHB - Rep 7+
MCPB/HB - Rep 8+

Cost: No cost! The Abbott's are happy for a chance to flaunt their wealth.
Where: The Abbott's manor in Glenridding.
Why: Because Will wants a romantic scene to propose to Diana and Mama Abbott is happy to have an excuse to throw a party Because it's spring and the flowers are blooming!
When: May 22nd, 1890

Guests will arrive by floo, where they will come out and be presented with the manor's main foyer. There they will be led by a path of glowing lanterns to the manor's grounds; a sprawling cobblestone courtyard where tables are set up for evening tea. The courtyard overlooks a large lake. Atmospheric charms around the courtyard prevent guests from getting too cold, though a nice breeze will occasionally pass through the hillside.

A quartet will be playing light music throughout the evening.

There is a maze just beyond the courtyard (but within the courtyard's atmospheric charm) overflowing with greenery and flowers. Though most of the flowers are charmed to not affect those with seasonal allergies, one or two might have been unaffected as the staff were casting their spells ;) In the maze, the flowers glow, though that is not a guarantee they're telling the guest the way out! It isn't a hard maze to navigate, though if a guest wishes to leave and not complete the maze, all they need to do is pluck one of the flowers, crush it between their palm and scatter the remains on the maze floor. The maze hedge will fold back and allow the guest to walk back without a hitch.

Unbeknownst to most of the guests (though rumor may have gotten around), William Abbott plans on proposing to Diana Fawley this evening just as the sun goes down.

After the proposal, the evening tea setting will disappear and the evening will transition into a nighttime ball complete with a larger band and dancing. Glasses of champagne and beverages will be brought around by servants and house elves for guests to refresh themselves. There will still be seating and light refreshments throughout the night.
