NEWSFLASH UPDATE - APRIL 8, 2013
 

SOUTHERN COMFORTS - Atlanta 2013

The HK House of Peers, in conjunction with Harmony Kingdom UK and Harmony Ball Company,
featured SOUTHERN COMFORTS – April 4-7, 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Peter Calvesbert and his family joined us for a successful event!

We took you back in time to the genteel South, just prior to the War Between the States
as shown in Gone With The Wind, celebrating eight years of the House of Peers conventions,
where we have support by the local clubs, enjoy seeing old friends, and making new ones.

Peter Calvesbert and his family were featured at
SOUTHERN COMFORTS!

 

SOUTHERN COMFORTS was chosen as the name of the event to reflect many of the things Georgia is best known for. Besides Southern hospitality, there's the well-known Civil War movie Gone With The Wind, and there's agricultural products Georgia is know for; including peaches, pecans, and peanuts. And now we were able to add Pete to the list of P's!

Peaches, Pecans, Peanuts, Peter
 

Registration at the Collector level was $225 and the Associate level was $140.
 

Peter Calvesbert, acting as Artistic Director for the event, chose the Old South/Antebellum period as his inspiration for the event figurines. The Early Bird offering, Paws for the Belle, takes us back to before the Civil War and was inspired by the most famous movie made about that period, Gone With The Wind. This is Peter's cat-like version of how Rhett and Scarlett might be dressed for a day of fun! This piece was available only to those who registered at the Collector level (restrictions apply) before October 15, 2012.

Peter is pulling out all the stops for our final "big" convention and carved an incredible box for us, reminiscent of the Ed's Safari boxes, as the event figurine. Tugaloo Hullabaloo, the main event piece, is a two-lid box representing the steamboat that moved people and cotton on the Savannah River. All Collector level attendees received this steamboat carrying many of the animals we've come to love from Pete's work. Peter created a second version of the event figurine, Tugaloo Hulabaloo II, as an event fundraiser. In Version 2 the weight of the manatee pilot caused the tower to collapse. The manatee has squashed the snake and other unlucky animals that were on top. Any Collector or Associate had the right-to-purchase any number of Version 2's desired.

As a note: The HK House of Peers has now held conventions all around the country – from Newport to Seattle and from Chicago to Phoenix. In the future, we may have one-day events in places like Las Vegas or other "fun" locations. Atlanta was our final "multi-day" convention, celebrating all the fun we've experienced over the past 9 years!

This may have been the BEST ever HOP event! In a celebration for your support of us and Harmony Kingdom over the years, thank you!
