MY FLOWER DINNER PARTY.

WE HOSTED A DINNER PARTY FOR 16 LAST WEDNESDAY  WITH GOOD FRIENDS AND I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU MY  BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS I BOUGHT AT A FLOWER SHOP ALL FOR $ 28 AND THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ROSES OF THE WORLD, WHICH ARE ECUADORIAN ROSES...I'M ALSO PROUD TO SAY THAT MY BROTHER IN LAW  HAS ONE OF THE  ROSE FARMS HERE AND HE EXPORTS THEM TO EUROPE,  RUSSIA AND THE USA.
 
I, AND EVERYONE ELSE, COULD BUY THEM FOR $ 4, 25 THE BUNCH OF 25 ROSES; HERE IN MY BIL'S STORE, BUT NOW THEY WERE $ 7 BECAUSE OF VALENTINE SEASON.  THEY'RE  2 MT'S. TALL, SUCH LARGE STEMS!



WE HAD A WONDERFUL EVENING WITH ALL OUR DEAR FRIENDS.

I HOPE YOU LIKE MY TABLE-SETTINGS AND FLOWERS.


I love the Chinese figurines Alejandro bought on a trip to the capital.
I don't recall how long ago.

 
This beautiful vintage, Italian silk brocade tablecloth is a heirloom from my dear Mil. 
My mother in law  left it to my hubby as it's unique and so elegant. 

 
I love doing flower arrangements, one of the best things about having guests for dinner, besides tablescaping, which is my very favorite part, specially choosing the dishes, stems, flatware and table toppers, of course. 
Beautiful hot pink roses.

The star lilies are so beautiful too, although hubby hates their scent, lol..

 
Orchids... just love them!  There are such immense variety in this country.

Gorgeous orchid for the coffee table.

I love the color of the green-yellow roses.

The flower arrangement at our den's coffee table. 
Our den is close by our formal living room and it also has a counter bar, therefore we can have guests sitting in both areas and still be near to mingle among each other.

This gorgeous roses are from my Bil's Rose Farm, Altaflor.  He exports them to many parts the world.

 
This round table will be seating eight guests for dinner.
The china is Tognana, made in Italy.

The large table will be for eight dinner guests, as well.
The flower bowl, with a basket weave pattern in the crystal is German..it was a gift from hubby several years ago for one of my b'days.

The organza cut work tablecloth is from Spain.


The glass chargers are from Turkey.

The white dishware is Noritake,"White Scapes".

Below: 
 The white table you see against the wall, at your left is where I will serve the buffet.


HAPPY VALENTINE'S !
  Thank you for dropping by and for the sweet and generous comments you leave me, you always make my day!

Thanking all the lovely ladies for the great parties I will be joining.

LOVE,

OMG! I forgot to tell you all about the golden silk brocaded tablecloth from the large table...it was bought in Venice-Italy in 1950 by my in laws when they did they're European trip and they sailed from NY's harbor...so it's had 60 years of loving use and now we have inherited it to our delight! THANKS FOR VISITING ME.
XOXO

Hi Fabby,

So much beauty! It's always a treat to visit you, and especially today when you've shared these gorgeous floral centerpieces. I think you must be absolutely correct that Ecuadorian roses are the most beautiful anywhere. The lilies are wonderful too, and I love the way you've arranged them. These are truly international tables. I enjoyed seeing so many beautiful items from your extensive collections of beautiful things from so many different countries.

My compliments to a most excellent hostess!

Warmest regards,
Bill

Fabby, thanks for coming to visit. The tables are just fabulous and I agree, those roses are absolutely wonderful. I know, I hate what they do to rose prices right now! What if they quadrupled the price of chocolates this time of year! Can't believe it so I usually tell my hubby to skip roses or buy them at Costco - only double in price. Your linens and plates are gorgeous too. How fun. Have a wonderful Valentine's DAy.

I'm sure you treasure that tablecloth.

You've created such and elegant setting to honor your friends for the luncheon...and what an amazing view outside your window. The gorgeous tablecoths on both tables set the tone for your designs. They are like beautiful ballgowns crowned by your lovely flowers. Everything came together perfectly. Thank you for sharing your beautiful design and for stopping by my post. Cherry Kay
