There is something about the British Royalty that is fascinating to watch- such an archaic system, yet so enchanting and fairytale like. Afterall, everyone loves a great fairytale. I couldn't help but want a little piece of the celebration- 60 years as Queen Elizabeth- a little piece of this history lesson to have as my own. So I ordered the dessert plates designed for the celebration from The Royal Collection (www.royalcollectionshop.co.uk). They are beautifully made with a gold band and the royal crest - God Save The Queen! Setting the table with my crown embellished china from the old Helmsley Hotel in New York and hotel silver from Pottery Barn, I felt quite royal myself! An assortment of crowns from my daughter's collection were used to embellish the table, along with just three single white roses placed in a crystal compote. Vintage crystal from France added the necessary sparkle to the setting. A blue taffeta tablecloth russels softly as one sits at the table and leans back against the beaded and crested pillows. Time for tea anyone? We will be joining www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com for Tablescape Thursday. Please visit.
