FABBY: Father's Day 2011Tablescape

    I went for a black and white tablescape for Father's Day, as my hubby loves this combo very much.  We will be going to my daughter Sofia and Sil, Giancarlo's house for F's.D., about 3 hrs. away, at a Pacific port, Guayaquil, where they reside...we'll be all there, because it's our daughter Victoria's 7th. birthday too, the 19th. F's D.... I will make a table setting at her house too.
 The white tablecloth is made of Egyptian linen and hand made in Philippines, along with the napkins.
 The white china is Noritake's, White Scapes.  The black and white china is Multiple Choice.
 The pretty cup.  You can see the work of the tablecloth.
 The old fashion, etched, hand made, antique,  champagne glasses, were my  Fil's parents. The wine and water etched, hand made glasses are Bohemian, from the Czech Republic.
 The ivory ball is from India.  The bronze, French vintage dog is from my collection of dogs.

 The champagne we'll be having is, HENKEL-Trocken.
 The metal, hammered ball  is Indian too.
 This gorgeous whisky decanter was my fil's, antique, from Venice, it comes with 6 of the cutest glasses.
 The center piece is a black glass urn with lid I bought a while ago.  I loved the flowers with  red and yellow to give this very masculine table some color.

  This one is one of my favorites tablecloths, but I hardly use it because when it gets dirty, I don't like washing it and worse, the linen is awful to iron...it seems like you never finish!!
 The black and white tablescape.
Have a beautiful Father's Day with your hubby's and your fathers, if you're so lucky to still have them with you.  Thank you in advance for your wonderful and generous comments.  Hugs,  FABBY

Hello Fabby,
oh my, your table is really exquisite. The black and white theme is just pretty for fathers day and the tablecloth is perfect with it. You have so gorgeous glasses and all the decoration objects are so calming and pretty. Did I say it already: exquisite.
Wis you a wonderful week, beste greetings,

Fabby, This is a very stunning tablescape. I love your dog collectibles and the crystal is so very elegant too. The tablecloth is so pretty; you did a good job ironing it - it looks perfect.

Pamela Gordon said...

What a gorgeous and elegant table setting! It looks just wonderful in black and white. I love the look of your linen table cloth but I understand your dislike of the ironing of it too. It's hard enough to iron a linen blouse and keep it wrinkle free! Hugs, Pamela

Hello sweet friend...

Ohhh, Fabby...this Father's Day table is extrodinary!!! As soon as I seen the black and white color theme, I thought of a tuxedo...sooo elegant! I love, love, LOVE IT! It truly is one of the most exquisite tables that I've ever seen, my friend! Starting with the table linens...the table cloth is FABULOUS!!! I love the cut-work lace pattern in the center of the cloth! I do know what you mean about washing and ironing these types of cloths...but sooo very worth all the work because it's so pretty! The china...there again...sooo exquisite! I love the black and white and the the pattern on the little cup is sooo beautiful, my friend! I love how you did the table's centerpiece as well! The black urn with the fresh, colorful flowers is lovely and I love the little dog statue and bronze and ivory balls! Ohhh my dear friend, you have certainly outdone yourself creating this table...it's exceptional! Thank you so much for sharing it with us! I just know that all of the Fathers that you will be honoring with this beautiful table...will be thrilled!!!

It sounds like you will be busy traveling for the holiday. Have fun and enjoy and safe travels too!

Thank you so much for coming by my little Tea Rose bedroom! I always enjoy our visits and your sweet note just made my heart smile! Thank you, dear friend!

Fabiola: What a beautiful table! You had me at the tablecloth! There's something about a linen tablecloth that gets me every time! It's so timeless! Your glassware from the Czech Republic is beautiful. Everything is done with such understated elegance! Happy Father's Day to your husband!

Susan (My Place to Yours) said...

Fabby, what a classy table! Your etched stemware is gorgeous, and I absolutely love your linen tablecloth! Does ironing it wet (or very damp) make it any easier to iron?

Marlis said...

Fabby, The black and white is so elegant. You have such a wonderful collection of dishes. I agree with you that the table cloth is amazing and would be my favorite too and I actually enjoy ironing! Dianne

jo said...

Wow Wee Fabby. You said that I had inspired you last week with the black and white table. Well blimey you weren't kidding. You have managed to put together the most gorgeous table. Like you I am normally all about bright colour, but, I love the neutral tones of your table. there is not a single thing that I don't just love love love!

The stemware is divine....and the dogs.....oh so stunning.

Well done for putting it all together. (I hope the ironing was worth the effort lol)

I love your tables so much, keep them coming my friend.

By the way you said that you had trouble posting on my blog. Just to let you know that it came through and I got your lovely words.
