Fabby: Dinner Party a Year Ago.

About a year ago we hosted a dinner party with a few good friends after we remodeled our kitchen and so I was so excited to start the  "party cooking" and use all my new appliances, like my double oven and everything my brand new kitchen privided me, specially how wonderfully organized I finally was.   I wasn't blogging than, so the pictures are the home made tipe, didn't have to worry you'll see them!...LOL

You can see me tiding up my house for the party and than next to my table setting and so is my dear hubby in the small marble antique table.  The chinese alcanphor wood and hand decorated  trunk was a gift from my MIL one one of my hubby's 
b''s more than 100 yr. old .  The black chair next to eat was my grandmother's.  The gorgeous roses are from my BIL's Rose Farm.  The  piece of furniture flanked by the two French red striped chairs belonged to my hubby's grandfather, turn of the century Italian, the flowers in the doors of it are carved by hand.  So, I hope you
 enjoy it and sorry for the not good photos, I'm getting a little better.  Thank you for all the hostesses I might show this post to and for letting me participate!  I'll start with my friend Chari at Sunday Favorites.
Love you all and thank you in advance for visiting, I love it when I hear from you!
