I was catching up on the international news last weekend for Model UN, especially on the Nuclear Summit in The Hague when this picture caught my attention:
Apparently all the government leaders had a dinner hosted by the Dutch King and Queen. But that was not what first caught my eye. All the paintings, even on the ceilings. It seems they are some kind of memorial to a very early Dutch politician if I read it correctly and the hall is very rarely opened.
And not only the paintings are stunning. What we can see from the event itself as well. The uniforms of the staff, the French style of table setting and the seating plan of the guests...
I wish I could organize such an event someday though. I was taught hostessing, but this is something totally different. A dinner party for a small group I can easily handle, but this is on such a large scale.
