Whether a Brit or not, by now you’ve surely heard the coronation for King Charles is set to occur May 6—and, naturally, that inspired our team to dream up a dinner party tablescape fit for royalty! If you’re planning a watch party for the grand event or your own jubilee to mark a special occasion, here’s how to set a table that’s nothing short of majestic. For those that love to host, this one’s going to be a crowning achievement.
Opt For Elegance
To set a table befitting a queen and her court, pull out all the stops with the traditional glory of fine heirloom dinnerware. No pattern in our collection reads regal quite like Vintage Jewel, introduced in 1998 and back in production due to popular demand. Painstakingly crafted in white bone china with lustrous 24K gold and platinum accents, this renaissance of tabletop artistry features magnificent scrollwork and heraldry-inspired floral motifs that appear pulled from a coat of arms. We complemented the rich details with gold chargers and Vintage Jewel Flatware that perfectly mirrors the beaded jewels of the dinnerware.
Toast To The Occasion
Whether it’s to say cheers to the new king (or the host who truly does the most), your guests are going to want to raise a glass. Make it memorable with a champagne fountain! Simply stack a few coupe glasses in a pyramid and pour the champagne from the top. Partygoers will love the showmanship, plus it makes it easy for them to grab a glass and enjoy. If champagne isn’t on the menu, coupe glasses are perfect for all kinds of cocktails, too. Consider the former monarch’s favorite: Dubonnet and gin.
Keep Calm And Party On
We adore a theme, and in keeping with the modern British monarchy, this one detail to keep in mind is key: restraint. Channel your inner royal set the scene with on-theme, classic elements that stand the test of time—just like a great monarch. For our table’s finishing touches, we incorporated candlelight, crisp white linens, and bouquets of roses as a nod to the Tudor rose, the floral heraldic emblem of England. Congruous with the late queen’s penchant for tonal dressing, we kept the blooms in a single color—one that matches the dinnerware perfectly.
