Hello everyone! Today is April 10th, and back in 1912 the Titanic set sail on its maiden voyage. Every year we set our table for what we call Titanic week. Well guess who came to set sail with us this year?
(we're holding our boarding passes)
As many of you know, she and her husband have moved here where I live and we have been worshiping together at Church every Sunday. So after Church today she and her husband came over for a Titanic dinner. (sorry about the blurry photos, hubby took them!)
I used my plates that I bought from a Titanic Exhibit several years ago.
The lamps are PartyLite and I bought them at a flea market several years ago just for my Titanic table. They are similar to the one's on the James Cameron movie.
I always use the same things each year, I know kind of boring, but this year I have something new (old) to share with you that is very exciting! At least to me it is!
Can you see what I added to this photo that wasn't in the above photos?
YES, this silverware! And it isn't just any silverware! It's White Star Line silverware!! I found it at our last sale and was very excited indeed! The sale was for a 90+ year old lady who had lots of her mother's and grandmother's things.
See the White Star Line flag emblem?
Aren't they neat? The fork has definitely been used a lot, it's a bit beat up.
They are silverplate and were made by Cunard Elkington and Sons of Birmingham, England. Not sure which White Star Line Ship these were used on. Titanic? Olympic? Britannic? I don't know. I do know that the White Star Line was in business from 1911 to 1935. Oh, if only silverware could talk!
Below is my teacup from a Titanic Exhibit, but the saucer got broken. :(
And my son's Titanic toy ship that he used to play with all the time.

Thank you so much for visiting today and have an eventful Titanic week.
Please let us take a moment and remember the many lives that were lost that fateful night when the Titanic sank to the bottom of the ocean.
