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?
