FABBY: Pink and Green Tea Tablescape

I'm joining the great ladies from Egg-xellent Spring Party, hope you do too.

 Hi lovely ladies!
I  made this table scape to join Shirley's Tablescape party and Beverly's Pink Saturday.  This time I created a tea table scape with some sweets and used again my teacups and salad plates I designed back at our former ceramic co. as it has shamrocks, to continue with the St. Patty's celebration. I also paired them with my reticulated dinner plates and other accessories from these dishes. I also added some little birds around the table to evoke spring.  Ok, take a look, hope you like it. 
Thank you in advance for coming and for the lovely and kind comments you always leave me. 
Thank you lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at your fabulous parties each week.
 My table scape for high tea with some depression green glass, like this fruit bowl.
 I used a plain tabletopper in pink and I placed on top of it my organza, embroidered, green and beige place mats.
 The flower vase is vintage Bohemian crystal from Czechia... in gold and green. A couple of Italian porcelain white doves have landed on the table too...I guess for some sweet crumbs, lol..
I placed my oatmeal bread on a green depression glass leaf.
 The cookie platter. At left one of my dozen ice cream spoons, shaped as a shell. They were a birthday gift from my dearest Mil, from so many years ago. The silver plated butter spatula next to it was a gift from mother's several Christmas ago and they are a dozen too.
I took this shot standing on a chair...I always say that I'm not to tall, therefore, they never come out as I wish. DH doesn't ever volunteer, lol..
Don't you love that ethereal looking vintage, needle crochet doily in the tray?
The lace like hurricanes are from my set of reticulated dishes as well.
 The sherbets and goblets are Polish. They are in pink and violet.  Some little birdies around the table too.

 The teacups are pumpkin shaped.
The tea set in an Italian tray, I have it for more than 20 years.
Little birdies inside the cloches with vanilla and chocolate cupcakes.
 Shamrocks on the salad plate.
The place setting I chose, with reticulated dinner plate, salad plate in green with shamrocks and Polish sherbet in pink.
 Another cookie platter.
 The hand decoration on the teacup is like the embroidery on the blouses of the indigenous women from Ecuador...this was my inspiration for the 14 designs of dishes I did back then.
The picture is crooked, not the tabletopper, lol..  Many kisses to all my Irish friends...ok, and to us the faux Irish ones too, lol !

Diane said...

Hi, Fabby! I always love your tables. You choose pieces with such interesting shapes and colors. Even your candles have special details. What a great view you have out your window!!

NanaDiana said...

My gosh,Fabby, you are just amazing. Your dinnerware is absolutely exquisite and I love all your shamrock pieces. I am Irish/English and my hubby is Irish/Polish so there is Ireland in my blood for sure. When his grandmother died his Dad took all the beautiful Belleek and sold it off without ever offering to let anyone in the family have it. I would have been glad to pay him for it. It just makes me sick that it is gone. It had been handed down from her grandmother. Sad...

You do an absolutely beautiful job, Fabby. Everytime I come here I am just in awe. xo Diana

Linda Chapman said...

Just beautiful......as always! You have some lovely things!!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Fabby, oh Fabby, your table is gorgeous...from the place setting to the antique dinnerware and centerpiece vignette...I cannot say enough of your most spectacular table!...I do have a question though, is that a window or painting that I see in the room...if it is a window, you have an awesome, awesome view!!!

Thank you so much for joining the Egg-xellent Spring Party..I so much appreciate it!!

Have a wonderful day..Happy St. Patrick's Day!

xinex said...

This is spectacular, Fabby! I love your plate chargers. Where did you get them? So pretty! Of course everything on the table is very pretty too....Christine

A Cottage in the Clouds said...

Absolutely beautiful! And to think so many of the pieces are your own design! I wish you still had your business so I could buy things from you! What a stunningly elegant table!

Debbie said...

Very lovely! My favorite parts are the tea cup/salad plate pattern and that beautiful stemware. I'm such a groupie of sherbet dishes like that. I wish I had them in every hue imaginable.

Chubby Chieque said...

Mi chicka!

Oh la la??? Tnx God, I didn't missed my flight.

WOw! where's my chair? I so hungry now I really need some tea.

Everything is so pretty and the bread and the...and the... can't get enough.

Happy TS, dear Lady F and hope you have a great & blessed w/end.

Hugs,
/C

P.S.
I need your help...
Here is the question:
I opened a new foodie blog and I used same google acct. It works those first 2 days and yesterday, somehow, I lost the link to Chubby Chieque.

I see you have 2 blogs. I would like to have the same. You will understand what I mean, when you come and visit me, pressing the link i use. You will ended to Yummylichie and not to Chubby Chieque.

How to do the "setting"? Hope to get some feedback to sort out my delimma. Thank you,

Mom Wald said...

What a strikingly rich yet fresh table. The use of the pastel glass with the deeply colored pottery with an accent of the white china makes it like a painting of flowers in the morning light. I like your whimsical touch of the little birds. Thank you for the inspiration.

Brandi said...

Gorgeous Fabby! You've done a beautiful job once again!

So many things to love here! A set of Leed's Creamware Reticulated plates is on my "someday list". Your pieces are glorious. I love the warmth of the Depression Glass, and those Shamrock salads are priceless. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

SavannahGranny said...

Oh Fabby, Your table is amazing. I just love the dishes you designed. How wonderful it would have been to tour the factory. Your reticulated dinnerware is gorgeous and looks so "fabby" with the salad plate and pink stemmed dish. Oh, the ice cream and cookies are going to be wonderful. Your bread looks delish, I zeroed in on that in the first picture.
I have missed visiting, I have been resting a wee bit.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day,
Love to you, Ginger

Hello Fabby,
First I would like to say thank you so much for visiting and following my blog, and for your sweet comments!

Your table settings are truly unique and beautiful. I have been scrolling through your blog looking at all of them! I love the reticulated plates used in this one, and the shamrock edged dishes made by your former company. How special that you have, and are able to use such sentimental pieces! I love all of the birds also!

Hope you are having a nice weekend.

Hi, Fabby...this tablescape just sings out "SPRING"!! So beautiful. I have always liked pink and green together, and so love the crystal goblets and the dishes paired with the reticulated pieces, and the little white birds add such a whimsical touch!! You always have such wonderful things, and I like to read about where each piece comes from. You have some gorgeous inherited pieces along with the dishes you made.
The green embroidered placemats look lovely over the pink table-
cloth, too. It all goes together to make a glorious spring tea party
table!!
Happy St. Patrick's Day (I am Irish mixed in with Spanish!) and also belated Pink Saturday, too!
Hope you have a lovely week...
Hugs, Francy

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Fabby, What a wonderful table you have set. It is simply gorgeous. I love every little detail and the way your dishes look with the pink clear glass. You are so very talented, and I do believe your tablescapes should be in a magazine.
I am in awe of the gorgeous view outside your window in the background. My gosh what I would give to look out and see that.

Now I will take a seat and enjoy your yummy cookies on that gorgeous platter with a cup of tea. I may drop a few crumbs for the darling little birdies too.

Thank you for sharing this beauty and also for stoppin by for a visit. Always so great to see you.

Happy Spring.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
