FABBY: Two Easter Tables

Under the soup tureen I placed the crocheted lace runner my mother made for me many years ago. I thought it was a pretty touch for my reticulated dishes, Easter tablescapes. 
Hi my darling friends, how are ya?

Here I am making two Easter tables with my two yellow moire tablecloths I recycled from my window draperies that were changed into Hunter Douglas shades... back in October 2011. I also used my COMPLETE RETICULATED dishes for twelve.  Therefore, you will see the round breakfast table with four place settings and the formal dining table with the eight, but of course I didn't display the accessories and serving pieces it also has, as it won't fit in the tables , I usually use them in buffet parties.
                            BLESSINGS FOR THIS PALM SUNDAY.

                  HAPPY EASTER EVERYBODY!!

 The round breakfast table with a bunny inside a cloche.  The bunny is my grandgirl's Victoria who gave it to me because she's outgrowed it, lol...seems like granny didn't yet, hehehee..
 The bunny actually eats the's really cute!

The stems are French and they were my Mil's.
 Serving set, with charger, dinner plate and soup bowl...everything is reticulated. The votives are lace like too, so I thought they went perfect!
 The napkin rings were all made at our former Ceramic Co. and they have butterflies on top for the spring feeling. Here you can also see the salad plate under the cup and saucer.
The two tables set with one of my favorite sets of dishes. They're a creamy color, not white, which makes them prettier, like antique. At left my NEW antique Belgium buffet I just acquired and am so in love with!  You can see the buffet post just behind this post.
 The formal dinner table, also set with the other eight reticulated place sets on top of the other yellow moire tablecloth made, or recycled from my former draperies.

 Here you can  see the reticulated hurricanes, they also came with this vast set of china. I took this shot with the lights off.

The skinny flower vases are Bohemian crystal, with yellow daises and pink carnations. The hand etched stemware are from Czechia.

 Charger and dinner plate.
 The complete set with the soup bowls. The little candy dishes with the Easter eggs, are also reticulated.
The soup tureen was also made at our former ceramic company, with a bird and flowers on the lid, flanked by the two lace hurricanes that came with the set of dishes. I placed the tureen as the centerpiece.. for the spring feeling of the tablescape.
So here you have them, my two Easter tables for twelve, for a sit down dinner, or luncheon. I love to make buffet dinner parties too, as than I can use all my salad bowls, tea set, water pitcher and platters that go with the rest of the reticulated-lace like dinner set.

Thank you lovely and sweet friends for all the comments you always give me, and they're so very appreciated.
Thank you lovely and gracious ladies for hosting such terrific parties and for having me.

Very Beautiful Fabby. I really love the white dishes. Clean, crisp and elegant. Have a wonderful weekend!

Annesphamily said...

What lovely Easter tables you set. It is my favorite holiday. I hope your weekend is wonderful.

Jacqueline said...

What a grand dinner you will be having. I just love the yellow tablecloths. I have done the same with my curtains. I just couldn't waste all that fabric and they don't make many tablecloths that are big enough. Your reticulated dishes are amazing and so is the fabulous tureen. I love how you used a touch of pink with the yellow. Everything is absolutely happy and springy.

Johanna said...

Dear Fabby,
this Easter table is so cute. Poor little bunny, must sit under the cloche with jsut one carrot and has to look on the fine table. I hope you will not serve rabbit this day! Your reticulated dishes are really like lace. All are as usual fabbylous.
Best greetings, Johanna

Pamela Gordon said...

Beautiful and elegant tables Fabby. I really like the china you are using in this post. Gorgeous!

martinealison said...

Ma chère Fabby j'aimerais me transformer en petit lapin et être sous la cloche de verre afin de pouvoir tout observer... Tout est si délicat et raffiné sur ces deux magnifiques tables. Ton service de table est d'une grande élégance et apportera à cette belle fête de Pâques une note particulièrement printanière. Tes ronds de serviette en sont également la confirmation avec ces adorables petits oiseaux.
J'aime beaucoup aussi ton tableau sur un de tes mur représentant une très jeune fille...
Le partage des oeufs dans un aussi beau décor ne peut qu'être réussi et parfait.
Ma chère Fabby encore mille mercis pour la gentillesse que tu me témoignes au travers de tes commentaires qui sont toujours les bienvenus.
Gros bisous à toi.
(sorry, mais je te tutoie!)

This is a gorgeous looking table scape for an Easter dinner. The moire tablecloths bring "spring" in so well, along with all of your beautiful china..(I love all of your many pieces to the set!!) The two slendor vases of pink and yellow flowers add the perfect touch of color without being distractable from the serene setting.
I think that is so cute that your grand-daughter gave you her bunny she had outgrown!! You displayed it so prettily under the cloche...
will she be there for Easter so she can see how her Grannie used her old bunny!!???
You always have such wonderful taste in everything you do, Fabby, and this tablescape is no exception!! I think you have done a lovely job on it...thank you for sharing this with us.
Have a happy and blessed Holy Week...and a wonderful Easter.
Hugs and love, Francy
