In anticipation of the Royal Wedding, my daughter and I created a tablescape which I will be linking to Tea Time Tuesday and Tablescape Thursday.
Since we couldn't find a sapphire blue tablecloth, we started with a white tablecloth and used blue fabric to make a runner. Then we added red and white ribbons to form a Union Jack design. For the centerpiece, we pulled out the "crown jewels" and put them in an apothecary jar which we topped with a tiara.
Then we surrounded the jar with various British and Royal Wedding symbols.
For each place setting, we used a red place mat with a golden charger topped with a Spode Blue Italian (which is really very British) dinner plate. I used Oneida Wordsworth flatware and three different types of stemware.
On each white napkin with a gold napkin ring, I put a Royal Wedding pin. There are several different styles.
Here is the whole table.
I will be going to a brunch at a friend's house to see the wedding. My husband will be sleeping in as he doesn't care and can't figure out why I have turned our dining room in to a tribute to the British Royals! To each their own!!!
