You are invited to the Duchess of Devonshire’s Diamond Jubilee tea in honor of Queen Victoria, attired in fancy dress costumes.

Fancy Dress (costumed) balls and parties were all the rage during the Victorian era. Some had specific themes, such as those featuring costumes inspired by the reigns of Louis XV and XVI or Russian Royalty, and one creative event in 1898 was a plant party, where the guests came attired as various vegetables, flowers houseplants and fruits (mostly in the form of elaborate headdresses).
