A Marie Antoinette inspired tea party

A recent historical discussion/debate on Marie Antoinette's infamous 'let them eat cake' quote got me thinking about one of my favourite Marie-inspired editorials.


I love the dramatic dark wall and gorgeous harvest table laden with all of autumn's finest. (I do not, however, love that rooster - I have a phobia of these vicious, evil creatures.)

A glamourous tea party al fresco - I love how perfectly the elegant, black
Great Dane blends with the ensemble.

The perfect end to every tea party - nothing could be more heavenly than a little harp music!
