Historic Garden Party Bridal Shower

teapartyJune has long been known as the month for brides, and every bride knows that a wonderful gown is the key to her special day.  Also, vital, but not often mentioned, are those special supporting undergarments which make everything look just right on her wedding day and her wedding night!

Ladies, join the Mount Prospect Historical Society from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 11, and step back in time for a “bridal shower” for Bessie Friedrichs, the woman who grew up in Mount Prospect’s historic home.  But, remember that no gifts are expected since Bessie only lives on in our memories!

Tour Bessie’s historic home, which is now the Mount Prospect Historical Society museum, located at 101 S. Maple St., Mount Prospect.  Guests can indulge in light refreshments of finger sandwiches, sweet desserts, lemonade, iced tea and champagne in the beautiful and historical garden.

underwearThe novel and sometimes naughty presentation for the afternoon will be “The Rise and Fall of Ladies’ Undergarments,” by Ellie of Ellie Presents.  This talk will unveil facts and expose myths about women’s unmentionables.  It includes stories from real women – past and present – and their amusing and sometimes uncomfortable relationship with their foundations.  Participants will also view actual examples of historic underwear.

Space is limited, so make your reservations quickly for this unique event.  Advance reservations can be made online in our store using PayPal, or by cash or credit card at the museum.  The cost is $10 in advance or $12 at the door, if there are spaces still available.

For more information, please contact the Society at 847/392-9006.
