Did You Know?
Queen Victoria was known for putting jackets and dresses on her pups, causing clothing for dogs to become so popular that fashion houses for just dog clothes started popping up all over Paris. — Fox
It would be easy to assume that Evangeline came to the Lady Morgana only to pick fights. That wasn't true at all. They also had very good biscuits.

What: The Botanical Ball
Who: An NPC couple is hosting this ball for members of the Middle Class of good repute!
Where: Hogsmeade Memorial Assembly Rooms
Why: MCs just wanna have fun?
When: May 18th

The ball is botanical themed, with arrangements/decor purchased from The Florist Potts and some fancy charmwork so that even the vines on the tablecloths are growing! One of the sitting rooms has been magically enlarged to fit a small indoor hedge maze. The maze might try to absorb you into hidden nooks & crannies. Guests are strongly encouraged to dress to theme.

What: Potts Annual Flower Show
Who: Hosted by Laurel Potts & daughters for anyone, including muggles, though they can only access the left portion of the zoo itself where the muggle animals (and plants!) are. This includes the butterflies, topiaries, picnic space, and lawn games.
Cost: Entrance fee to the zoo to be paid, pay per activity beyond that.
Where: Podmore Zoological Gardens in Irvingly
Why: Flora, Fauna & Fun!
When: May 4th, 1894 (This is the Hogsmeade visit and students may be signed out by a family member to attend!)

The Podmore Zoological Gardens have been transformed into a floral oasis! In both the muggle section on the left and the magical section on the right, the animals have had their exhibits decorated at the front with large arches of flowers from their native habitats. Informative plaques with details about the flowers are attached to each arch.

A large tent with secure nets has been erected in an empty enclosure of the muggle portion of the zoo with a double entrance for a butterfly exhibit, complete with flowers and butterflies from around the world.

Another piece of the same enclosure has been transformed into a lush green lawn and a huge exhibit of colorful topiaries of many of the animals. Lawn games and picnic blankets will also be available.

Between the two sections, behind the ticket booths are the traditional activities the Potts ladies have offered; bouquet arrangements, flower crowns, sweets and refreshments from Honeydukes.

As evening draws near, the zoo’s small outdoor pavilion will be transformed into a sweeping floral presentation where the entire ceiling has been turned into the garden. Flowers will hang down among lights akin to fireflies to set the mood for what is more like a barn dance than a ball.

More information on the zoo setup can be found here!

What: The Annual Hogwarts CoB
Who: Hosted by Hogwarts. All students in years 5-7 are welcome. All adults who completed 7+ years of Hogwarts/their spouses/parents of seventh year girls of middling/good rep are invited.
Where: Hogwarts' Great Hall
Why: #It's Tradition
When: Sunday, May 26th

The party formally begins with the procession of debutantes, beginning with Head Girl Sisse Thompsett, followed by prefects [NPC Hufflepuff], Matilda Farris, and Iphigenia Adebayo, then all the other seventh year girls in alphabetical order. Dancing and refreshments will be available throughout the evening.

At midnight, dressed in their finery, the 7th years will leave Hogwarts the same way they arrived, taking the rowboats back across the Black Lake.

UCAB* | REP 7+ | TEA

What: The Rose Tea
Who: Hosted by PSYR, invited are:

Current students and their female [mother, elder sister, great-aunt, whatever]
PSYR Graduates
All unmarried UC ladies, 15-18, and their female [mother, elder sister, great-aunt, whatever]
Female Hogwarts prefects, regardless of class*, and their female [mother, elder sister, great-aunt, whatever]
Any female 15+ who earns you access to the Lestrange chat on Discord xD

Cost: None
Where: The Pendergast School for Young Roses in Wellingtonshire
Why: Self-Promotion
When: Saturday, May 4th
Come one, come all, to a tea party in one of the PSYR ballrooms. It's an opportunity to check out the school, have some tea and snacks, and rub elbows with Women of Note (probably). There will be croquet on the lawn for anyone who tires of talking and simply must do something more competitive active. For the younger set, it's also a chance to take a gander at the marital competition.

The event will last for about two and a half hours, at which time flying carriages will arrive in front of the school to transport guests to the Potts flower show.

What: Annual Hogwarts Study Week
Who: Hosted by the House Matrons in connection with the student charms club, all students are invited to study for exams together in this annual end of term event.
Cost: None
Where: Spare Hogwarts classroom in the corridor leading to the library
Why: For students to study and to foster house relationships
When: May 12-16 & 19-23

Hogwarts House matrons annually set up evening study sessions at the end of the year with clubs rotating each year in who helps them. This year it is the Hogwarts Book club. Tea and treats have been provided for the students as well as a stack of novels for a study break. There are comfortable study areas for individual study and a parlor set up for students who would like to study in a group. Matrons will be rotating through to assist students. Study each night will focus on the subject of the O.W.L. and N.E.W.T exam the following day, but help will be available for all students in any subject.

Of course with this many students in one area something is bound to happen.

Sunday, May 13: Charms and D.A.D.A.
A seventh year practicing a nonverbal Bombarda Maxima hit a pile of pillows intended to be used for the OWL charms students. Now it looks like it is snowing in the classroom with feathers absolutely everywhere - even in your tea.

Monday, May 14: Astronomy and Charms
A seventh year has been trying to make water into wine, except they've somehow managed to turn all the tea into the room into firewhiskey. (Was this actually an accident?)

Tuesday, May 15: D.A.D.A and Herbology
A fifth year was working on a concealment charm and managed to conceal all the books in the room. Certainly not helpful when one was mid studying about devil's snare.

Wednesday, May 16: Herbology and History of Magic
Someone accidently angered a Mimbulus Mimbletonia and stinksap has managed to spray everyone nearby.

Thursday, May 17: History of Magic and Potions
You'd think these NEWT students would know how to brew a simple Wiggenweld potion by now, perhaps going back to the basics isn't always a good thing? The potion has started to smoke, fogging the entire room with something very similar to the smell of amortia.

Sunday, May 19: Potions and Transfiguration
Cauldron cakes to cabbages was the goal. Instead a potion spilled on the cauldron cakes and the room is full of brussel sprouts with wings that have a pedant for diving into tea.

Monday, May 20: Transfiguration and Astronomy
The conjuring spells that the OWL students are working on for some reason keep summoning the star charts the NEWT students are looking over.

The remaining nights are available for chaos at the digression of the elective courses that are being studied for.
