The Silver Star

Novel Gathering

 

The Silver Star is a fun book club gathering to host.  Have a look at The Boutique ideas below.

 

Invitation

There are a few ideas here.  Uncle Tinsley had monogrammed clothes so you could send out invites with your monogram on the top.  You could send your invite out as a letter similar to the one Liz wrote to her mother (Refer to page 22)  Dear Queen of Hearts....

We at the Boutique chose to send out an invitation that resembled family and the genealogy charts Uncle Tinsley was working on.

 

Setting

We loved Aunt Al, so would try to recreate her welcoming home.  Here are a few ideas to include or borrow from friends and neighbors.

- A Car Seat and doll
-  Toaster Oven (to cook all those chicken pot pies in)
-  Cover your door in Tangerine or Turquoise blue (remember Charlotte wanted to be different)
-  Guitars
-  Confederate Decorations? 
-  Images of Emu's
-  Tea Service on a Silver Tray
-  monogrammed napkins
-  have as many of Liz's books scattered around or in a pile


Through the Looking Glass(Lewis Carroll books)
Edgar Allen Poe (The Raven)
Hermann Hesse
ee Cummings
Gurdjieff

-  a basket of cleaning supplies like the one Bean had to do chores at the Maddoxx house
-  stacked newspaper and magazines
-  maps and genealogy charts
-  spools of thread
