FABBY: Happy Easter Sunday

 The flower base it's Italian, I bought it a few years ago because it has a wide opening so I can arrange my brother'n'law's 24 roses we get often as a gift from him, as he has a Rose Farm.
 This pretty platter  doesn't belong to the china, I bought it separatelly, but goes well as it has little reticulated flowers in the finials.
 You can see the three plates  from the china, plus the salad plate.
 The floral pink arrangement.  A little cloche with Easter egg and one of the two small hurricane lamps that came with the china set. The glassware is my hand cut glass, Bohemian Chzeck.
 The soup plate is for pasta as it's reticulated and liquids could spill on the linen.  The pitcher doesn't belong  to the china set, I bought later because it was almost the same reticulated style.
 I bought two of this little cute cloches and put a chocolate Easter egg inside.  A better shot of one of the two hurricane lamps.
 Here's a nice view of the whole table set.  The linen tablecloth was my mother's, it's octagonal in shape , different, it shows the pretty corners of my dinner table.
 This is the charger, it came with the china.  I've used it with other chinas, as well.
 The dinner can see part of the salad plate.
 The pink, happy flower centerpiece.
 The cups ready for coffee after dessert. The tea pot  I bought laterA, it's not part of the china set, but also goes with the pitcher, and the platter shown here.
 The cups are adorable. This cloche is a little bigger with an Easter chocolate egg with a surprise inside I will give my  granddaughters to open it and find it....there's plenty more.
This Easter Sunday I'm having eight family members for lunch  at home and this is how my table is going to look.  I have a complete set for 12 places of this beautiful reticulated dishes.  I wish you all my dear friends in blog land a very nice Easter, along with your dearest families.
Love always and may God bless your homes this Easter Sunday.
I am posting at Tablescape Thursdays  at:
I'm thanking all the hostesses from this fun parties for leting me participate.
Thanking you all in advance for all yor visits, I always appreciate them very much.


  1. I love your reticulated plates, Fabby. They look so romantic. I also love the crystals, so stunning! Your tablescape is gorgeous and the pink tablecloth makes it look so easterly. I wonder why you couldn't link with Susan....Christine

  2. I love your white china, the open lace pattern on the edges is so pretty! You have a good eye to "match" up so many other pieces later on to go with it - love the teapot! How lucky you are to have a brother with a rose farm and that he "shares"! Hope you enjoy your Easter luncheon and have a blessed Easter!


  3. I love reticulated china. The Leeds creamware, or perhaps the Mottahedeh is on my list of patterns that I hope to collect. Your tablescape is elegant. Wow!...a brother-in-law who owns a rose farm...That's wonderful. Hope that you have a marvelous celebration for the most important day of the year. Thanks for sharing your charming design and for stopping by my post. Cherry Kay

I can just feel it in my bones! :-) I have got to tell you how much I love this china. It is truly one of the most beautiful designs I have ever, ever seen. I have always loved that lacy look so much! I have some dessert plates from Pier 1 with that reticulated edge, and I love them! I wish I could use them more often. How wonderful to get roses like that! They are beautiful, and I know they must make you very happy! Thank you for stopping by my place this morning, and I hope you and your family enjoy a joyous and peaceful Easter weekend. Take good care of yourself!
