A Castle Happily Ever After: Entry 1 – We’re Expecting!

Hi there! Remember me? My name is Peggy, and I’m Tour Director at Castle Farms. My daughter Kelly married her fiancé James on June 30th, 2012 here at the Castle. Since Kelly and James both lived in Seattle, I helped with some of the wedding planning, and shared some of our experiences with you in what came to be known as the “Peggy Blog”. The big day finally arrived, and Kelly and James were married in the Knight’s Courtyard, with reception following in the Knight’s Castle. It was a memorable event for all who attended. I thought I’d written the final chapter in the Peggy Blog. Kelly and James are living their happily-ever-after. But it’s about to get even better. Kelly and James are having a baby!

I’m no longer Mother-of-the-Bride. Now I’m preparing for a new role as a grandmother. Meanwhile, Kelly’s coming ‘home to Charlevoix’ for a baby shower, which I’ll be hosting here at Castle Farms on April 27th. Did you know that the Castle has all sizes and styles of rooms available? I’ve chosen the Queen’s Tavern for the baby shower. It’s a cozy intimate spot, perfect for a small celebration like a baby shower. The Tavern has original stone walls, hand-hewn wooden beamed ceilings, and antique herringbone-fashioned tiled flooring. It’s just the right atmosphere to relax with friends, and share lots of laughter and memories from when Kelly herself was a baby. She’ll always be my baby… and soon she’ll have a baby of her own.

Meanwhile, I’ll be checking in again to share thoughts on floral centerpieces, catering, and the like. Stay tuned!
