Ladies Bring A Plate II

Having decided to decorate the old plates, the second task was to decide what to put on them. We had gathered some old photos of events in the Hall when we produced a history book for the Hall’s Centenary celebration in 2014, and I had one of those in mind – it was taken in the old supper room.

I made the party image slightly transparent, so that the outside wall is just visible behind the party goers. The occasion was a 21st birthday party – look at that cake! The plate held by the lady in the foreground (the birthday boy’s grandmother, I think) is similar to the  bread and butter plates I have plans for…

  1. Hi, I don’t know how many coming of age parties look like the one depicted in the photograph – how times have changed! Before I read that it was a 21st birthday celebration, I was guessing it was a wedding because of the formal attire of the woman in the pale clothing and the man sitting beside her.
