Red & Gold Palace-- like the medallions for the set -- The State Dining Room, Buckingham Palace. When visiting the formal rooms of Buckingham Palace, always look up. The magnificent ceilings by Nash are probably the best features of the Palace.
On the afternoon of the banquet, bottles of port and claret are poured into glass decanters that date back to Edward VII, using Edwardian silver funnels and muslin squares. The decanters are carried up from the cellars in wicker baskets.
