Downton Abbey Virtual Tea Party – #DotheDownton

December 23, 2013

Hello, friends!  If you are Downton Abbey fans and fans of Cost Plus World Market, then you might have joined in on the fun during the virtual tea party December 8th.  Basically, World Market hosted a HUGE online social media event inviting followers to participate in trivia contests, talk about the show and submit pictures of themselves drinking tea while they “do the Downton” – pinkies out!  I convinced my mom to join in with me; here is our photo:


I had so much fun answering trivia questions and connecting with so many other fans of the show!  I didn’t win any of the prizes being given away that day (and there were A LOT of awesome prizes), but World Market liked my photo so much that they sent me (and my mom) TWO Downton Abbey mugs and a Downton Abbey tote bag!

#DotheDownton_01In one of the questions asked during the party, I mentioned that Anna was one of my favorite characters (her and Mr. Bates are the sweetest!), so I was blown away when they actually sent me the tote bag with Anna and Mr. Bates!  So incredibly cool and the bag is adorable!!


The virtual tea party spanned three different social media platforms starting on Twitter, facebook, Google + and then ending back on Twitter.  It was a lot of fun and I am so grateful to World Market for the mugs and tote bag!  I can’t wait to drink a big mug of tea in my fancy Downton Abbey mug while watching the premiere of the new season – January 5th, woo hoo!!!


Do you watch Downton Abbey??

Since I won’t be posting again until after Christmas, I just want to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to each of you!  I hope you have a wonderful holiday and enjoy the spirit of the season!!  And, as always, thanks for reading :), Kristi


**I was not asked to share this post by Cost Plus World Market, I am simply a fan and wanted to share my appreciation!  :)

    I have been obsessively watching Downton Abbey recently – so good! Anna is my favorite character too! Not only is she beautiful but I think she is actually the most truly lady-like character. I am just starting the third season now! Great post.
