Sometimes a wreath makes the entrance.

“You can’t always get what you want” as the song goes. You can create if you take the time.

I needed a spring wreath for the front door of the Manor. I have a fall wreath. Sized appropriately using the fall wreath for scale, I am pleased with the results. My mother would have knocked it out of the park. Getting ready for British Mother’s Day this Sunday, March 10, 2024. Love you, Mom! Miss you!

Happy early Spring!

Ticket sales end tomorrow for the tea on Sunday, March 10th. Here is the link– Book now!

Cheshire Cake– Not Always Wanting Sweet

Quintessentially British, cheese wheel wedding/celebration cakes–usually with white roses involved– are the only cakes we make here at the White Rose Manor and only by special request (I am a baker, but not a talented piping decorator, so I do not claim it). Most often, we serve as the Bed & Breakfast lodging for guests or families and their small events up for up to 20 attendees. If you desire a small event like an intimate wedding, bridal shower, memorial service, etc., the White Rose Manor may be just right for you. If you need a cheese wheel cake, we can do that, too. Come to Lincolnton. You will love it!

Pictured here is one of our Cheshire Cakes. Produced here on a larger scale for approximately 120 people, this cheese wheel cake was featured at our 2023 Christmas High Tea as the table centerpiece and then portioned as gifts to our guests. While we can create several styles of scalable cheese wheel cakes for weddings, charcuteries, etc., many cheeses work well for this lovely, edible addition to your table.

Fun fact: “Cheshire is one of Britain’s oldest and finest cheeses.”

White Rose Manor is something special, just like you.

Waking Up with “Miss Peggy”

When you have beautiful roses like “Miss Peggy” (named for Peg Mauney who lived here), it is wonderful to find someone else who was in just the right place at just the right time for the show.

Waking up in my majestic bed in the Grandstaff Room, the daylight seeping through the blindings, beautiful roses catching my eye and the smell of good coffee seeping through from the kitchen below– I’m gonna miss all this so very much!

Thank you for making our stay so wonderful, Allison. I hope to come back again someday.
