Selina van de Geest referenced her British heritage with her table, The Crown, celebrating the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. I always admire her clever and layered tabletops at these events.

With the buzz around the Netflix series and the Queen’s recent birthday, it seemed particular appropriate. Influenced by the understated glamour of the Royal Family, van der Geest added gold rope on the chairs from Samuel & Sons and offered guest gifts of Coronation Tea and Biscuits from Buckingham Palace.
