DIY MACKENZIE CHILDS HALLOWEEN !

 HELLO SWEET FRIENDS !

WITH MY LITTLE GRANDDAUGHTER MAXIMA WE HAVE CREATED A HALLOWEEN TABLE AND BUFFET FOR THE FUN OF IT.

MAXIMA ENJOYED IT VERY MUCH AND NOW ALL SHE WANTS TO EAT IS THE BLACK CAKE.

I USED MY DIY MACKENZIE CHILDS PUMPKINS, PITCHER AND MY LATEST, A CAKE PLATE WITH STAND.

HAVE LOADS OF FUN THIS HALLOWEEN 2020, ALTHOUGH THIS YEAR HAS NOT BEEN FUN FOR MANY OF US, AS HUBBY AND I CONTRACTED COVID-19 RIGHT AFTER FATHER'S DAY.

WE WERE TREATED AT HOME AND DIDN'T HAVE SERIOUS COMPLICATIONS. THANK GOD.

WITH THAT SAID.







I DIY the pumpkins in black and white, along with the pitcher a few years ago. I saw a pretty MACKENZIE CHILDS cake plate with pedestal the other day and I went to work on a glass, simple and small plate. 

I also bake my fav 'Pumpkin-Chocolate Cake' and frosted with black butter frosting. I made the butter frosting as usual and then I added a few drops of McCormick Black food coloring.






                             I see some ugly bugs crawling !!!




Have a fun and safe Halloween.

Thank you for you for dropping by, you made my day !

Thanks to all the hostesses for their great parties.

LOVE,

FABBY

A Simple "Buffalo Check" Table Setting

Hello sweet friends !

My daughter, her hubs Sergio, Maxima almost five and baby Leonela 10 months, always come on Fridays for lunch, as we rather be indoors at the evening.

Actually, I always set a table for them in different motifs every Friday. This is one of a my fav ones from last Friday. 

The other day in our local supermarket, while shopping for groceries, I found black and white 'Buffalo Check' placemats and you can just imagine what happened ! I bought eight, so when my other daughter Sofia and family come over.

I simply love all Checks and color combinations, but I think the black and white is my very favorite. 

I created a simple Fall table for this occasion. Here it is, hope you like it too.

Wish you all a happy and healthy Fall Season.


                                                
I love black and white Buffalo Check. Picked these placemats last time I was on our local supermarket.


Paired the placemats with my black-gray and white china.


















Hubby came  home with a pumpkin and gourd, so I replaced the teaset and styled the tray again with the fresh 'Fall' goods.

Thank you so much dear friends for your sweet comments, you made my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for their parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

A Luncheon with a Lemon Setting

 Hello sweet friends !

We had a luncheon with my daughter and her husband. The past weekend the other day my daughter received lots of lemons from her uncle's, home grown lemon garden and of course, she shared some with us.

So, since I had my lemon plates for the luncheon, I decided to use the real lemons as a centerpiece on my two tiered, Meissen server. 

It just looks like the last of Summer too.

Therefore, I created this simple setting, to pair the yellow lemon motiff with blue. 

I'm also posting for you my first Fall transition buffet. 

So here it is, I hope you like it.



Our view towards the avenue and at your right there a beautiful river running thru.

I placed my yellow 'moire' tablecloth for the yellow look. 
Some of the ladies that follow me might remember I recycle my past living room curtains into two tablecloths, this round one and a long one for the formal dining room table. Had lots of fabric from the curtains I replaced with Hunter Douglas shades.


                   My first Fall 2020 buffet arrangement.








                       A very simple luncheon table setting for four.



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

              Thanking the lovely hostesses for their inspiring parties.  


                                                    LOVE,

A Table Setting with "Toile de Jouy Placemats"

 Hello sweet friends !

I wanted to create a tea table again with my "Toile de Jouy" placemats I made with leftover fabric from my chairs. 

I bought this coral beautiful material to reupholster my dining room chairs as it's been 25 years I hadn't, since dear hubby gave me this gorgeous Italian style dining room.

Therefore, while visiting my daughter in Miami, two years ago, I bought this lovely French "Paisanery" Toile in such pretty coral that goes with everything I place in the table.

So here is my tea table with my green dinnerware for eight, except I'm only using the teacups and cake plates, with my reticulated dinner plates as chargers and flowers to match. 

Hope you like it too. Enjoy it.




Here I'm using my green china, which brightly pops up against the coral of the placemats.





Hubby said...Wow, matching galore ! Made me crack up hahaha...
You can see I bought deliberately the coral flowers and pink, as well.











As you can see, I had enough fabric to make a runner too.

And if you look up the window, there's also a 'Valance' that I was able to do with more leftover fabric from the chairs.
Very exciting !








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

Thanking the gracious hostesses for their inspiring parties.

An Eclectic High Tea Table with Maxima


I received beautiful roses from Alejandro, as he heard me say that I needed some flowers to create a beautiful high tea table with Maxima, our four year old grand from dear daughter Alexandra and her hubby Serge. 

Maxima had a ball helping me set this eclectic tea table, with a Summer freshness in the different pattern dishes I chose and the gorgeous roses too. 

Little Maxima loved the idea of different tea cups for the fun of it all. 

Wish I could invite ten of my friends for my Rosary prayer, but we are keeping social distancing very strictly for now... that's why tea is not happening at my house, we're all praying at the same date and time each lady at our homes.

We pray for this dangerous Pandemic COVID19. 
We've had family members and friends infected with the virus, but thank goodness they have all come out of it, treated at home.

Here is the table and keep assure we are all praying for family and friends around the world, in the hope this stops and a cure is found and hopefully a very safe vaccine.

Praying specially for all the people that need to go out and work and specially for the ones that are having a hard time in every sense of the word.

Keep safe and sending you all a big hug and many blessings !



Here is my little guest and helper. Maxima four is a smart and fun kid, we enjoy her so much !

My cutie is such fun to be with !

She was so excited too !

We had fun doing this eclectic table.



Loving the roses, how happy they've made us !













I simply adore the gorgeous roses Alejandro ordered for us and he has enjoyed them too.

They're still doing well a week later.








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

Thanking the lovely hostesses for their fun parties.

LOVE,
FABBY
