A Royal Dinner Party
































Yesterday, Romancing the Home hosted an event for The Lake Forest Women's Club to review our new book "Romancing the Home Entertains. We set up several tablescapes to illustrate our book's content. This table was for a formal dinner party, but really showed the mixing and matching of china. We used vintage china , mixed with a new line of accent dinnerware that we have in the store. Taffeta was used under a gold bridal lace as the tablecloth. Vintage sherbet and champagne glasses served as votives and floral containers. We made the menu card from scrap booking supplies. The white and gold over sized napkins in the tiger print really updated the overall table, and are also available at the store. Be sure to visit www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com to see other tablescapes on Tablescape Tuesday.

Did the king and queen make it to your very elegant dinner party? Interested in your club's publication. Is it on entertaining in general or tablescapes?

This is elegantly exquisite! I adore the use of fresh grapes under the florals. I wasn't sure by the photo. . .appears to be a blue tablecloth with a gold lace overlay. . .whichever, it is gorgeous! The soft blue dishes make this a breathtaking sight to behold. Thank you for such an inspiring post to Susan's meme Tablescape Thursday!
Fondly,

The jeweling on the bowls and the chargers raises the design quotient up a number of notches. Beautiful and so well conceived. Thank you for sharing your lovely design. Cherry Kay
