“Give my regards to Broadway, Remember me to Herald Square
Tell all the gang at Forty Second Street that I will soon be there!”
George M. Cohan
Hello sweet friends…and today we will be taking it to Broadway! Yes, you read that right…we are going to the city that never sleeps! I am excited to be joining a group of talented bloggers for a Broadway Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate! Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom for the full line up!
Broadway merges my love for music and travel…and for that reason, Broadway has many memories attached for me! In the autumn of 1998, we were beyond excited to be flying to New York City, our first time in the Big Apple together. We had planned all of the typical tourist attractions…the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Central Park…all of those places that are a must! But the one thing I was especially anticipating was taking in a Broadway show! We did a little research and selected the one we most wanted to see…and wow, what an evening it was! As we entered the Imperial Theater and took our seats for the performance of Les Miserables, I was blown away. When the first notes of the orchestra sounded, we were swept away to the pure pleasure of musical theater! Since that magical night, we have seen many Broadway shows…and we have even been to London’s West End to see the popular Mamma Mia! When we returned to NYC in 2007, we decided it might be fun to see the world’s most magically popular nanny, the one and only Mary Poppins!
Of course, we had seen the movie as children and knew all the songs by memory, but this brought it to life! It is such an entertaining show for all ages. So with that said, I hope you all enjoy my Broadway table and have a supercalifragilisticexpialidoc
I found the fun in this tablescape job and snap it was a game!
The Broadway play Mary Poppins is based on the books by P. L. Travers and the classic 1964 Walt Disney film. It is the story of the Banks family and how their lives change when nanny Mary Poppins arrives at their home at 17 Cherry Tree Lane in London.
“Chim chiminy chim chiminy chim chim Cher-ee! A sweep is as lucky as lucky can be.
Though I spends me time in the ashes and smoke, In this whole wide world there’s no happier bloke!”
As a tribute to Bert, the chimney sweep, the bow tie napkin rings made an appearance on this table! Gingham ribbon holds cheerful red napkins and a daisy!
Mary Poppins opened on Broadway November 16, 2006 just two years after debuting in London’s West End. The original Broadway production closed March 3, 2013 after 2,619 performances and more than six years with attendance totaling nearly four million guests! I would say it was a pretty popular show!
My sweet husband hung the umbrella from the pergola on Tuesday, and that afternoon after gusty winds, I came home and noticed a black object in the pasture in our front yard. You guessed it…the umbrella magically took flight and flew away from the pergola!
The Broadway musical was an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers and astonishing stagecraft! Those four elements combine for the perfect evening on Broadway!
