A Party Fit For Marie Antoinette
The table is dressed with a matelasse cloth covered in roses, candy, confetti and images of the queen. Crystal candlesticks are dripping with jewels. At each setting is a collection of antique silver and China topped with a vintage handkerchief to be used as a napkin. In the center of the napkin is a ring fit for such regal guests.
You can’t have a party without cupcakes. I made the toppers from images of the queen printed on card stock. A toothpick was glued between two back to back circles.
Our ladies in waiting are The Fashionista and Hannah. They shall be serving a dinner of french onion soup, salad with french dressing, cordon bleu, green bean almondine and scalloped potatoes.
Although the invitation instructed that “Men, children, and beasts are most unwelcome…” perhaps we can make an exception for my darling court jester, Rudi.
Of course, Marie Antoinette is playing on the big screen tv. The movie is muted though while music from various French artists is piped through the surround sound for total ambiance.
