An Elegant Afternoon on the Lawn


Savor the warmth of friendship with a flavorful luncheon served during a day of croquet. The summer social unfolds blissfully on verdant carpets of grass dappled in golden sunlight.

Beneath a canopy of trees, a graciously appointed table bids challengers to pause from their play and sample an array of delectable treats. Lush floral bouquets, loosely arranged in antique-silver trophy cups echo the lively hues of rose-strewn linens and succulent fruits.

  1. Your magazine is heavenly. Bucks me up a treat in Noosa Heads, Queensland, Australia. Must say it is very difficult to purchase. Have been purchasing since 1980’s. Love Cheryl

  2. Couldn’t agree more — discovered Victoria providentially in 1989 and have loved it ever since. “Heavenly” is exactly the word for this beautiful publication. It both lifts and soothes the soul.

  3. Ah, the memories of a perfect Summer day – woodland shaded lawns, a spirited game of croquet, and the refreshing teapots full of fruity infusions complete with tasty sweet and savory delectables to share with friends!

    Such a wonderful way to relax on a sunny day while listening to the birds singing and buzzing bumblebees nearby as puffy white clouds drift by….

    Thanks Victoria for reminding us of what a good and proper English Summer should be like !

    God bless !
