Lawn Games

By washingtonpost.com

This Saturday in a historic garden, the game is croquet. I'm not talking about spectating in Annapolis; here's an Alexandria garden party where you can aim for the wicket yourself. The afternoon is equal parts fantasy for kids and adults: tea party and hat-making for the little ones, croquet and spirits for grownups, but fancy attire (think seersucker suits and springy dresses) for all. There's a hat contest with prizes for design, most beautiful and funniest. Sounds like your cleverest friend throwing a party or a scene from an Edith Wharton novel. But at $15 ($5 for kids), it's a mini-fundraiser for the circa 1785 Lee-Fendall House Museum and its glorious gardens. Why wait for muddy Gold Cup to dress up? This is the perfect party for the season.

Now THIS sounds like fun! :-) Finally a little fun in Old Town... we're sorely in need.
