WOW at the Matthew's House

On Monday, the ladies of my former neighborhood  (the WOW'S) went to Cary, NC,  for lunch at The Matthew's House; a wedding and event site. There were nine of us for lunch; a buffet which is set up in their event building - a lovely venue - behind the old home. We had caprese salad, stewed carrots, a Caribbean rice dish and coconut shrimp. Dessert was peach shortcake with peaches and fresh whipped cream on top. I didn't take photos of the food, but I did of our group, below,
and of the adjoining old home, which is nicely furnished.

The entrance doors are stained glass panes, although I don't know if they are the originals, since 
the colors are so bright. The parlor is well appointed; though small.
I didn't get photos of the dining room because some people were in it. The foyer is wide and runs the entire length of the home
. The bedrooms upstairs are large and set up so that a wedding party can stay there - at least the bride and groom can. The master bedroom
is lovely and the tub beckons one and all. Once, when I did a wedding here, I had to provide rose petals that were going to be floated in the tub on the wedding night.

This is the east side of the house, from the yard where outdoor weddings are held.

What a great thing to do Judy---It must have been fun to see your old neighbors once again. That is a very interesting place, too. Very pretty, too---Inside and Outside.

What a lovely outing. Is it your Readers group?

All but one, Pat. The lady on the left in the wheelchair is not in the book club. There were two people missing from this outing who are also in the book club - we have 12 in all.
