In this 1951 film Fred Astaire and Jane Powell play a dancing duo who end up in London at the time of Princess Elizabeth's wedding.  Our whole family was just delighted by this movie.  

It's been years since I had a reason to drag out any of my wedding-themed decor so I was thrilled to see it again!

Did you know you can buy rose petals from your grocer's floral department?  This was an inexpensive, easy way to make a big impact on our table.  You instantly think of a crowd of well wishers showering the bride and groom with petals as they dash off to their honeymoon.

Crown dinner plates paired with wedding dessert plates were the perfect combo for this one.

Drink charms added an extra touch.

This vintage cake topper was a wedding gift of ours.  I loved using it as part of the centerpiece.

I picked up dinner from a local specialty market which made things both simple and elegant.  These little strawberry cakes were a delicious end to our meal.

This movie offers amazing dancing (Fred Astaire dances on the walls and ceiling!) and plenty of comedy as well.  As with many classic movies, the clothes are divine.
