FABBY: Anniversary Breakfast Table

My inspiration for this breakfast table is our Anniversary of 37 years of a very happy marriage with my wonderful husband. We were married in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 25th., 1975. Since we love special weekend breakfasts and our Anniversary is tomorrow Saturday, Feb. 25th., I decided to set a special table for us.  Hope you like my first breakfast table.

   I paired the egg cups and the other dishes in green and white made at our former Ceramic Co. and the design was the original decoration Spaniards first made 200 years ago, which inspired me to design this dishes...with some reticulated, or lace like dishes from my complete set of twelve.
 The tea set, which in this case it will be for coffee. There's a roos on the teapot as this is how Spaniards made them in the colonies era.  For some new friends I also designed 13 more sets of dishes inspired on the indigenous women's of Ecuador beautiful embroidered attire, skirts, blouses and shawls.
 The reticulated dinner plate with the green and white salad plate. The small bowl is for the fruit salad., sometimes we like it with some yogurt on top and walnuts.
 A shot up high. The table topper is a cotton plaid I have for many years, I used it on this table as the colours are so cheerful.
The egg cup  with the layers of plates. The napkin rings also have a bird and the other a roos.
 The plate with a single flower and cloche lid is for the cheese. The crystal vase in the centerpiece is Polish and I use it a lot C'mas time.
Our breakfast round table is right next to the formal dining area, this way we can use it when we have  more guests for a luncheon, or a dinner party. I've had 16 and more even.
The chairs in the breakfast table are vintage Dutch.

You can see the decoration better in the teapot close up and also in part of the cup with coffee. The rooster is also molded by hand.

Here is the place set for our breakfast on Saturday and Sunday morning. The charger, the plate for cheeses, ham, marmalade, the egg cup, the small fruit bowl, coffee cup and apple juice.
   I've never made a breakfast table before, so this would be our special breakfast for our 37th. Wedding Anniversary and realized we love to have a special breakfasts on the weekends, Saturday and Sunday mornings, with apple juice, ham, jam, bread, eggs and fruit salad.  This  breakfast table is set with cute egg cups and other dishes in green and white that were made at our Past Ceramic Co. and I paired them with some reticulated dishes from my set of twelve.   So here you have it...our 36th. Anniversary Breakfast Bable.

    Beso desde mi blog de NUTRICIÓN

  6. Beautiful china as always....Happy Anniversary, may you have many more!


  7. This is a special table. Enjoyed every little detail. ~ Sarah

  8. What a nice table setting. I was very fond of the white plates, they look like lace. Have a nice weekend.

    Oh by the way, I have a very small "fredags kul" and you and your friends are so welcome.


  9. Happiest of Anniversaries to you both! The table is as "Fab" as YOU are...The colors are so cheerful; the layers rich & wonderful; the china from your Co. is lovely.

    Your menu is tempting, too! I'm not a big breakfast eater, so this sounds like a lovely mid-morning brunch to me.

  10. What a beautiful breakfast table for such a special day. Congratulations on your anniversary.

    Not only do I have a passion for dinnerware, I also majored in pottery in school. I find your designs from your company, and your stories fascinating.

  11. Fabby, what a pretty setting! You always have the most gorgeous dishes to choose from!! Happy 37th Anniversary to you!!

  12. Such lovely china! I wish you still had your company so I could buy things from you. I love the little rooster on the teapot and napkin rings - just the right touch of whimsy. I love this breakfast table, and your menu sounds just right, too. Happy anniversary!

  13. Well, Fabby, you have shown us some beautiful, exquisite, and wonderful china through the months, and it was all so gorgeous, but I believe this set of dishes you made is one of my favorite!! The colors of lime green and white are lovely together, as are the flowers on the china, and that rooster on the lid of the teapot is charming...I spied them on the napkin rings also! I love the egg cups, too!!!
    I guess I am so "taken" with the china because I am trying to pull some of the PINK out of several of the main rooms in my house, and go with lime green, white, yellow and touches of turquoise, so when I saw your dishes I was really drawn to how pretty they are, and thought
    if Fabby has these colors, then I must be on the right track!!
    Congratulations on your 37th wedding anniversary!!! I am sure your hubby will enjoy breakfast at the charming table you have set for the two of you. And the menu sounds delicious!!
    I enjoy your posts so much. You always have such great ideas for setting the table and your accessories and china are always beautiful...thank you for sharing with us today and enjoy your anniversary!!!
    Hugs, Francy

  14. I love the color combination. The bright green and orange are divine together. What time is breakfast? Richard from My Old Historic House.

  15. How PRETTY, Fabby!! My heart skipped a beat when I saw those reticulated dishes ...WOW!
    These dishes would work beautifully for St. Patrick's Day, too. I am blown away to think that you DESIGNED them yourself.

    Happy Anniversary & may you be blessed with many, many more HEALTHY years together.


  16. Hello Fabby! Your table is so very pretty. The colors you've used are uplifting. Winter has no hold on you! I enjoyed seeing your place. Thanks for sharing this special breakfast table.

  66. Dear Fabby, I just wanted to write a note to tell you that when the new Goggle rules go into effect tomorrow and you do not hear from me anymore, it is because
    I am not a blogger, just a follower
    and I do not have a name for my blog/account, therefore I have not been able to post on some people's already...since I use Anonymous with yours, I am hoping this will not apply to me. If, however, it does please know that is the only reason. I enjoy your posts so very much and always look forward to a new one, and I like to comment on your gorgeous china, crystal, etc.
    that you have acquired and on your
    special tablescapes You do such an out-standing job that I feel you deserve recognizing!
    I will miss you and I sincerely hope I can continue as anonymous..
    Your Louisiana friend, with hugs, Francy
