The second Titanic event that I attended was a full fledged 10 course dinner. Hosted by one of my wonderful friends - she put in so much work! The menu came from the original menu of the last dinner served on the Titanic, the music was the music played at that last meal, and everyone was dressed up in their Titanic finery. There were 16 in of use to sit down to dinner. We had another good friend of mine volunteer to act as our kitchen maid who was plating up all the food, and then the sons of two of our ACG members to act as our servers.
We started off the evening by gathering around for photos and socialising as well as a toast to the Titanic in honour of those who lost their lives on that fateful night 100 years ago. Our gentlemen were dressed up in full evening attire, and all the women looked wonderful in their 1912 evening gowns. Before moving into sit down for dinner, we were given a crash course in etiquette of the time. The hardest part had to be not saying thank you to our servers every time they gave us something. I guess that is one of those things that is just ingrained now, whereas in 1912, you didn't thank them, they were just doing their job.
