Hello sweet friends!
Alejandro and I have been for almost a week visiting our Miss Living, Alexandra, for her birthday, September 16th.
Here are some photos from the dinner party we did that very evening for her, her boyfriend and us.
I cooked a real great dinner, (if I may say so myself, lol)
Here goes part of Alexandra's beautiful high rise apartment in Quito-Ecuador.
|I love her apartment, it's just great and so comfy with two big bedrooms and three baths and of course, laundry room, fabulous storage, lovely kitchen, etc.|
|We were four for her birthday dinner...Mr. Living, me, Miss Living and her boyfriend.|
|The gorgeous dishes in pink and green were designed by her at our past Ceramic Co. and the design came from a dwindle embroidered skirt she saw on an indigenous woman and took a picture for me to reproduce it in the china.|
|Here, at left you can see the style bowl where the pasta with pesto was served as an entree. The small pan contains the Parmesan cheese.|
|Here is the design of the dinner plate...of course these dishes have lots of pieces!|
|The salad plate was made in pink to contrast the green in the dinner plate.|
Both, are made by potter's wheel and hand decorated as well.
Which mean that both procedures are hand made...as all our dishes from Alejandro's past factory were.
|Cream of soup bowl with handle.|
For the dinner I served in another style bowl, the pasta I made with pesto.
|The dining set is vintage French and upholstered with blue leather, which I love. |
I mentioned to Alexandra that blue transferware would look great in the table and she said: 'I don't like that look'...I felt soo sick, lol!
|Alexandra has also modern dish wear too... and a set from her grandma she loves, with lots of strawberries...so I can't expect 'everyone' to go for transferware, right?|
|My dearest birthday girl!|
The friends that always follow me know I sent my gorgeous alabaster round table to DD Alex, after hubby bought another lovely vintage French table for our breakfast room.
Here it is in Alexandra's foyer now! As you enter the house there's a long corridor and at the end you hit the table, so it's perfect here!
Thanks for your sweet and kind comments, as you always make my day!
Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
