Friend Of The Week – The Storyteller’s Cottage

Fairy Forest

Hello, dear friends, this week I discovered a fabulous blogger who I can’t wait to introduce you to! Her name is Lisa Natcharian and she’s the founder of The Storyteller’s Cottage, the place where literature comes to life! 

Lisa is the owner of a circa 1891 Victorian house in Connecticut that she converted into a unique venue for in-person literary events back in 2017. Imagine hanging out with your besties and exploring literary-themed escape rooms, hosting bookish tea parties, and attending fun events such as fictional feasts, midnight dinners and more? Of course, all of that came to a crashing halt when the pandemic began, so Lisa created The Storyteller’s Cottage, where she shares her secrets for creating fictional worlds in real life so that you re-create the magic yourself!

Menus Inspired By Books

Foodies – want to plan your next party or immersive event around a book or a story? Lisa says that serving food from that world goes a long way toward making your space feel real! Check out her secrets for delighting your guests with Fictional Feasts inspired by Fantasy Menus Inspired By Books!

Armoire Turned Portal

DIYers – looking for a unique way to upcycle an armoire? Why not Create A Secret Wardrobe Door and turn it into a fantasy portal? If you’ve ever read The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, you know how exciting a project this is!

How To Host A Murder Mystery Party

Game Lovers – looking for some dastardly fun? Check out the low cost, downloadable mysteries Lisa’s created on her Etsy shop or (spoiler alert) – if you’re really bad at solving mysteries and need some insight into how it’s done, check out her clues on How To Find The Killer At A Murder Mystery Party!

Making new friends and deepening existing relationships is a joy. Be sure to visit Lisa this week, leave her some comment love, and congratulate her for being our Friend Of The Week at Friendship Friday at Create With Joy!
