    Entertaining at Biltmore and Downton Abbey®

    Tuesday, February 11, 2020 | 10:00 a.m. reception | 10:30 a.m. lecture

    Tickets: $35 members & co-sponsors* | $45 non-members

    Location: Atlanta Decorative Arts Center, 351 Peachtree Hills Avenue, NE

    The entertainments at Biltmore House, Asheville N.C., built by George W. Vanderbilt, were a source of much intrigue for Gilded Age society. A New York columnist speculated, “There were house parties and private theatricals, and heaven knows what all.” Indeed, entertaining in a grand fashion was always central to the Vanderbilts and life at Biltmore. This winter, the historic estate continues the tradition by hosting Downton Abbey: The Exhibitionin celebration of the release of the long-awaited film. Biltmore Curator Leslie Klingner will describe the many parallels between life at America’s largest home and Downton’s beloved Highclere. Biltmore even had a British housekeeper, gardener, and butler—not Carson, but Harvey. From the breakfast tray delivered to your room, to a scrumptious afternoon tea in the Tapestry Gallery; and from an eight-course dinner for 38 guests, to retiring to the Billiard Room for cocktails, American and English country houses parties were sublime! Drawing from photos, letters, and journals held in the estate’s private archives, Leslie will share stories about the 20th-century country house fêtes. She will discuss the staff and family’s preparations, the fashionable set who attended, their attire, and the amusements they enjoyed. She will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the interactive exhibition while comparing entertaining in real life versus on screen.

    New Format!

    We're adding some extra *business* to our BBBs this year!

    There will be an opportunity for a member to sponsor each month's BBB.
    For $70, you will provide some light snacks for the group and when the food is delivered, you will have 5 minutes to speak to the group about yourself. This is a great opportunity to talk about what type of work you do, and who your ideal client would be. BBB Sponsors will be given plugs on social media, emails, and the website; as well as with signage at the event.

    In addition, please bring a business card. We will put all business cards in a bowl and each attendee will draw a name out of the bowl and will be responsible for making an effort during the upcoming month to connect with that person over coffee, lunch, a pint, or something else. Our goal is to help our members and non-members make meaningful connections! 

    There will now be a nominal fee of $10 for non-members to attend.

    This month's BBB will be held at Taco Mac at the Prado:
    5600 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs
    There is ample deck parking and a wide variety of restaurants for dinner after our event, if you're interested! 

    Note: BBBs in 2020 will be held on Wednesdays
    5:30 - 8:30 p.m.

    We encourage registration in advance so that we may adequately prepare!
