A Golden Table and Decking the Halls


Hello sweet friends !

I created my first Christmas table with mostly gold accents, along with my White Scapes - Noritake gold rimmed china. 

The center runner is filled with many things, greenery and golds as well.

I also decked most of the house. I started from the foyer that separates the living room and dining area. 

I hope you enjoyed what I did so far.

Happy December, the most beautiful month of the year ! 


I used my 'White Scapes Noritake' china with gold rims, gold glass chargers and gold flatware, in order to create a mostly gold accented Christmas tablescape.

The napkin ring has gold beads as well.



Cute little red Christmas truck and hubby's fav.









I bought the white turkey tureen at "Pottery Barn" while in Miami recently. We were there for the birth of our new granddaughter Leonela and I used it on daughter Alexandra's Thanksgiving table.

I couldn't part with it till next year and so Alejandro said: Don't we eat turkey come Xmas day ? That's all I needed to hear !

So here is Mr. turkey styled for the Xmas holiday as well, lol..





Nutcrackers and a little manger inside the clotch.

I always look forward to taking out my 'nutcracker collection' as I bought two more from Miami this year.




I decorated my French antique marble table a little. 

I'm not the one that over trims either.



The Italian bronze chandy is done up too.

A view from the foyer towards the dining area.

In the back is the living room (not finished yet)



A view from the formal dining room towards the foyer and continues to the living room, which is not finished yet. Next post.


Christmas table,chandy, and buffet in the back, done up for the Holidays.

Thank you dear friends for your gracious comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

An Autumn Luncheon for Eight


Hello sweet friends !

So I took some pics for my last post as we are going next week to Miami for the birth of our granddaughter Leonela. She will be our Alexandra's second baby girl. Maxima the eldest is almost four years old.

This table setting is created for eight guests and I started by featuring the pumpkin soup we love and the second course will be a pot roast with some other goodies.

I used my blue and white transferware I haven't in a while on top of dear MIL's beautiful hand-crochet tablecloth that needed to be showed off too, as I haven't set a table in quite some time and I love it.

I will try to post our Thanksgiving Day from Miami.

Big hugs !


I decided to go with my blue and white transferware plates for this Autumn luncheon for eight.

I placed a couple of cute "hedgehogs" here on this setting as they seem to be on style lately as pets and my 12 year old grand Cayetana has a real one and it's so adorable and tiny.
She sleeps all day long hiding underneath her blankets and starts walking at night, lol..

The luncheon menu starts with pumpkin cream-soup a favorite of all.

I also set this Autumn Luncheon table on top of dear MIL's gorgeous crochet tablecloth I was lucky to inherit from her.

 I decided to place two chargers in each place, the pink which is a larger one, along with the cobalt blue charger, blue transferware dinner plate and white French, soup bowl.

The goblets I used for this blue table are: Czech pink and purple wine glasses, paired with pink and purple water glasses. You can see them here.

One of the pair of "hedgehogs" I placed on this 'Autumn luncheon' setting.

The second "hedgehog" is hiding underneath some dry Fall Leaves in the blue antique bowl from hubby's grandmother.




I added my October 'Royal Albert teacup' I also inherited from my Mother in Law who's birthday was Oct. 21 and mine is Oct. 20... this sunday. 



Thank you so much dear friends for your kind comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their wonderful parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

" A Little Spooky table "


Hello sweet friends !

I created a "Halloween" table today because I really felt like having a little fun. So I proceded to take out the 'Halloween' carton with the stash and see what was in it and I came out with a not to spooky table, I've done worse, hahaha... now we can even eat out of it, specially the "Eye Soup" lol..

With that said, I hope you enjoy it, as much as I had making it.

Happy Halloween 2019 !


The 'Eye Soup' came out in stripes in the photo, lol..



The 'Eye-Soup' is my grandgirl Victoria's recipe hehehe

The centerpiece is a little spooky, but that's about all..wink





One side-buffet



Some touches of 'Halloween' in the other side-buffet.

The "Eye Soup" is the recipe of my grandgirl Victoria hihihi






                                         Very Spooky and dark... I wouldn't sit here in 
                                     the darkness would you ?

Thank you for dropping by dear friends, you always make my day !

Thank you lovely hostesses for having me at your great parties.

                                                   LOVE,
