Energize and Organize: Downton Abbey Farewell Brunch with the "7th Earl of Grantham" and the "Countess of Grantham"
Yesterday afternoon Terri, Janey, Debbie and I gathered at the beautiful home of Debbie, "Countess of Grantham", and Jeff, "7th Earl of Grantham", for a lovely luncheon and Downton Abbey DVD viewing of the Season Six grande finale. Sisterhood "Gal Pals", Kathy, Laurie, Lee, Marcia, and Nancy were unable to attend but were with us in Downton Abbey spirit!
Debbie set a gorgeous dining room table with her ancestors' beautiful china and exquisite linens. She served a scrumptious British luncheon featuring fine finger sandwiches and delicious tea. It was a "most proper" gathering of dear friends who share a cherished friendship and love of all things Downton!

In addition to the basic table setting, the informative www.emilypost.com site details organizational information for informal and formal table settings and a fabulous Youtube video of a Downton Abbey Table Setting competition held at the Essex Resort and Spa in Essex, Vermont.
