Royal Albert Hall in London...
Royal Albert China
(hmmmmmm...I think you might already know without any explanation ;-)
I've set the table for a nice tea with different patterns of Royal Albert China...there are so many wonderful patterns and these are my favorites! Each place is set with a different pattern and the ever-versatile Val D'Or is used at each place. Here we go!
Choose the pattern you like best and take a seat
Here is an overview of each place setting...
This pattern is called "Celebration" with beautiful white and maroon flowers
This one is called "Victoriana Rose". It was originally a Paragon pattern, but I believe that Royal Albert bought them. It is just delicate pink roses (sorry the picture isn't very good)
And here is the famous "Old Country Roses"...what else is there to say about this one!
This is "Moonlight Rose" which is the pattern of "Old Country Roses" in blues and lavender. You know how moonlight gives things a blue-ish cast. This is exactly what this pattern does.
(I don't have a salad plate in this pattern, so I used the "Val D'Or)
For the center of the table, there are beautiful real roses in an OCR teapot. Don't worry...there are more tea pots in the china cabinet so we can still have tea

Now for the dish on everything else!!
- The lace tablecloth I have had for years
- The maroon placemats are from ebay just this past year (not the best fit for a round table!!)
- The silverplate is Oneida Vanessa/Francesca
- The fresh roses are making their second appearance. They were a grocery store buy
- The pink damask napkins are from ebay
- Napkin rings are Royal Albert Old Country Roses from TJ Maxx
