Video: Downton Abbey Table Setting Challenge

Calling all Downton Abbey fans! On January 6, 2013, at the Essex Resort and Spa in Essex, Vermont, Anna Post and Lizzie Post posed a unique challenge to fans of the PBS show: Using this seven-course menu, guests were asked to correctly set the place setting. There were mountains of real sterling silverware, crystal glasses, and fine china to choose from. All the pieces needed to make a correct setting were supplied, plus two red-herring pieces meant to be leftover. It was so much fun, we invite you to have your own Downton Abbey Table Setting Challenge at home with your friends!
