The Queen's Sapphire Jubilee

Queen Elizabeth II became the first British monarch to 
reign 65 years on Monday, February 6.  The jewelry she is wearing in this photo,
a 1947 wedding gift from her father, King George VI
is perfect for celebrating the Sapphire Jubilee.
There will be a variety of celebrations around Britain. 

Austin, Glenn and I were in England during the queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002.
Austin celebrated his third birthday during that trip, his first to England. 
I purchased a commemorative Golden Jubilee teapot to remember that special trip. 
I used the teapot as a centerpiece for a decorated table at the 2008 
Berea Health Ministry afternoon tea fundraiser.  
My table was titled The Queen's Golden Jubilee. 
A few photos below: 
I used my Royal Worcester china purchased in 1998 at the factory. 

This was the most fun themed tea table I've ever decorated!  
I wonder what commemorative Sapphire Jubilee items might be available?
