The grands had such a good time! They were very respectful of their great, great grandmother's Limoges china, and nothing was broken! The plastic glasses and pedestal aperitif were perfect, as was the decision not to include utensils. There's plenty of time for that!
I love this Limoges china, but as I have told you before, I am just the foster mom. It really belongs to my daughter Jackie, and her husband Matt. It is his great grandmother's china. I think it will be time very soon for the china to find its forever home.
I was so pleased to start my granddaughters on the path to learning about fine things, and elegant dining. I think everyone needs a little of that! (Although if you gave my husband the choice he would select paper plates every time!)
Both of the grands wore fascinators -- it was too cute for words, but I have to be careful about pictures of the littles on social media, and I didn't take anything from the back -- so you'll just have to picture it in your mind! Darling!
Using fine plates and dining accessories honors the women who came before us, and I am always honored, and delighted, to be able to remember the place that they have had in our lives.
