Christmas in Newport

The Breakers - the largest and grandest of Newport's Gilded Age summer "cottages" was dressed to the nines this past weekend for the Preservation Society of Newport County's Holiday Dinner Dance. Built for Cornelius Vanderbilt II, the ornate designs of its 70 rooms were all crafted and assembled in Europe and shipped and re-assembled here. It's named for the crashing Atlantic Ocean waves on the rocks of this 13 acre estate.
Stoneblossom was honored to participate in this lavish affair - a seated dinner in the Great Hall for 250 guests. Our (75 lb!) tall iron stands provided perfect scale for this over the top space - although delivering them in a blizzard was an unexpected challenge!

Warm and Happy Holidays to you and yours from all of us at Stoneblossom!
