Inauguration Dinner Party

On January 20, 2017, we will celebrate a new day in America as Donald J. Trump and Michael R. Pence are sworn in as President and Vice President of the United States of America at the 58th Presidential Inauguration, once again establishing a government of, by and for the people, as we, the people.   My table this week celebrates the inauguration day and events. 







I chose my fine china for the table. The pattern is Randolph by Noritake.  My crystal is by Fostoria.  




I found these plates while home in North Carolina this Summer.  I used them on my RNC/DNC tablescape and at the election night party.   I purchased the White House ornament many years ago. The glitter elephant was purchased at Hobby Lobby this season. 


The centerpiece is a cookie house I purchased at Trader Joe's months ago.  I used it on election day then stored it away for Inauguration Day.   The Presidents are made of metal and seem to be rather old.  I found them on E bay earlier this year. 




The salt cellars are antique.  I purchased the salt cellar spoons while on a flight layover in Springfield, Mass. years ago.  They are from Peru.   There is a tiny Alpaca on top of the spoon and the scoop is a Peruvian coin.

    1. Hi Joy! Thank you! I haven't brought out my fine china in a long time. I thought this table deserved the finest this week. The poor cookie house is on it's last leg and was beginning to crumble. It's served it's time well this political season.
