An Engagement Party fit for a queen

      Every Christmas Season, my girlfriends Petra and Petra come to has become a traditional thing and I look forward to it every year! After a few visits filled with just Christmas Markets(do not get me wrong the markets are great), but afterwhile...well a girl needs more than just glühwein!!!! Plus Berlin is a city filled with history, why not enjoy it? So, this visit we decided to go to the Charlottenburg Palace. According to Wikepedia, it is the largest palace in Berlin. For more history info just go to Wikepdia!

Okay, so as any castle, this one had a gazillion rooms(bedrooms, sitting rooms, libraries etc) Funny, you never get to see the kitchen(for that matter the bathroom)! I wonder what kind of take away you got back in the 18th century!??

One may not get to see the kitchen, but in this palace you got to see ALL the dishes! There even was one room where the walls were covered.(Will post about that room later). The pictures I would like to share with you today, show you a tablescape that was done for an engagement party! The last pictures are just my favorite dishes....I asked a museum person if I could borrow them for a dinner party I was having, can you guess her answer?!

Still trying to figure out why one needs sooo much silverware!

Happy Thursday Everyone. Be sure to stop by other great blogs for more tablescape inspiration!

Tablescape Thursday
The Tablescaper


  1. Can you imagine the parties?! I love the second floor gilded ball room! The Christmas market out front is one of the better ones in Berlin. Thanks for jogging my memories!

  2. Oh, I love this post. I have never been to Berlin, but my daughter took two of her children there a couple of years ago and they loved the city. I am pretty sure that I "need" that much silver - it is one of my main obsessions!! Those pink plates are gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

  3. Wow, that is a SPECTACULAR table! Thank you for sharing your photos with us!

  4. I have never been to Berlin either and would sure love to visit sometime, wow your pictures are just wonderful, those dishes in the window are sooo beautiful it was hard for me to focus on anything else...thanks for sharing these wonderful shots.

  5. Ooooooh, I love all of the sparkle in this post! That's an amazing engagement party table. Thanks for sharing it.
