Thank you to all of our guests that made “this years” Medieval Feast such a success!


Lord Daniel and Lady Sharon Brassard

Dan and I would like to thank all of our guests that attended our Medieval Feast held Saturday.  Although the day was hot we managed to find a little wind that kept us cool during dinner.  Even our dogs got a little special attention .

With one of the hottest temperatures forecast for the day we decided to put the dinner tent under the carport. The breezeway was wonderful!

Everyone loved the each and every course with special “likes” on the MEAD WINE.

Surprisingly, after the meal the Gardens had a nice breeze blowing through and our guest enjoyed relaxing after their meal.

Powertex Workshop –  THE MERMAID

The forecast on Saturday was for “hot and muggy” weather but not in the air condition studios of Romantic Designs it was comfortable and productive. . Students in the Sculpting a Mermaid in Powertex Class were busy building and painting their outdoor sculptures.

ROBIN IN THE HOOD FESTIVAL – Great way to start off the summer Festivals

This was Romantic Designs first year participating in the Robin in the Hood Festival in Elmira and it was a wonderful weekend. We had beautiful weather and great crowds but the best part of this Festival has to be the venue. Gibson Park is a perfect fit for this themed Festival and the grounds are spectacular.  Can’t wait for next year.
