FABBY: Tablescape for Good Friday


God bless you my wonderful friends this Holy weekend, and may God shed all His Grace on you and your families.
Wishing you all a very happy EASTER SUNDAY.


 I made a tablescape for GOOD FRIDAY  for the two of us, as my daughter Sofia and her family are going to the beach, for the long weekend and our daughter Alexandra will not come to visit us this time.
 I decided to set our table for GOOD FRIDAY on our vintage French table.
 My Mil's antique iron cross and a pretty Lladrò figurine of a girl on her First Communion...that was a gift for my DD Alexandra on her FC.
 My Lynn's Fine china, I have for 16 place settings. I also used my lilac Polish water glasses, paired with my Mexican hand blown wine glasses.
 Loving the flowers. Cala and Lillies..
 I love the subtle pattern of this set of china, with dainty blue flowers and pink buds. The pewter charger, the dinner plate and the salad plate.
 The complete place set with the soup bowl.
 The Lladrò girl on her First Communion with a bird's nest with birdie. The cast iron, antique cross from my Mil's, is so special. The teacups are so cute with their English shape.

 The pretty Easter egg basket was made at our past Ceramic Co. with hand made flowers in the handle. The candle sticks are mercury glass.
 I love star lillis flowers, each one have two more buds to bloom yet...and oh, they make the room smell so good!
 The place set with the Bible in the background, the tea set and one of the mercury glass candle sticks.

The light purple water glasses.
Sometimes hubby and me love to eat on the foyer's antique French table, even if it is not a dining table... but it's fun on special dates, therefore, I think we'll have dinner here on GOOD FRIDAY. There's a special soup with all fresh harvest grains from the season, a very hardy soup and with many ingredients.. and also with "escabeche of cad fish"which is the custom here in Ecuador, after families fast all day until dinner time, where this soup is served. Some other families have it for lunch and this would be the only meal of the day, as well.



Thanking you in advance lovely friends for your kind and generous visits.  Thank you to the wonderful hostesses for having me at their terrific parties!

Hi Fabby!

That china is lovely, I love the delicate pattern and soft colors.

How sweet that you have used the special communion LLadro, cross, and Bible. All of this will make for a wonderful setting for your Good Friday dinner.

Have a wonderful Easter and thanks for sharing this at my party this week!

Fabby, what a lovely table! I can tell that you put a lot of love into setting it. Thank you for the reminder of our Lords Beautiful sacrifice for us this Easter Season...........

jeanetteann said...

OOOOh I just love this table setting Fabby. It is very much Easter. It's nice to still make it lovely,even for only two.
Because we live in Australia,it's very traditional here to have a picnic at a park or beach with the family,which we are doing on Sunday. The children will all run around and play ball and have a lovely time. Happy Easter :) xx

Johanna said...

Dear Fabby,
thats a wonderful table with lots of precious heirloom pieces. I love the Lladro figurine. I wish you a wonderful Easter time.
Best greetings, Johanna

Rebecca said...

The flowers are SO very lovely....and each piece so thoughtfully placed at the table contributes a quiet, reverent atmosphere to your home.

The soup sounds simply delicious, Fabby. Have blessed, thoughtful celebrations throughout this weekend.

This is the first time I have seen this pattern, Fabby, and I LOVE it! So gorgeous! So funny that I almost created a religious tablescape too, instead I just used purple to commemorate lent. Love the Lladro. I collect them too, lol, and I have those iron crosses. This is beautiful, Fabby....Christine

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Gorgeous table for two Fabby. I love the setting and the table!

Happy Easter!

Coloradolady said...

Fabby, beautiful table!! I love the little first communion girl, so sweet. Happy VTT

LV said...

What a lovely home you have filled with many priceless treasures.

Alycia Nichols said...

Good morning, Fabby! My eye immediately went to that sweet little Lladro figurine. How precious! One of my students is preparing to celebrate her granddaughter's First Holy Communion, and she would just love that piece! I'll have to give her a link to your post!!! Everything is so pretty, and I love the pattern on the china. Your flowers look pretty, too. Stargazer lilies make the room smell SO good, and they last for several days which makes them economical in the long run. I wish you and your beautiful family a blessed Easter weekend. Take care.

Fabby, your tablescape for Good Friday is beautiful. I love the fact you used your MIL's old cross, along with the old Bible and the figurine of a girl's First Communion....most appropriate for the season!
Your china is just lovely, and so is the stemware. I think the simplicity of it is wonderful. Love the mercury glass candleholders, too. You always have the most gorgeous china and stemware in your tablescapes!!
Aren't the lilies great?!! Star-
gazer lilies are my favorite, but all of them are beautiful together!
The menu sounds so good, and I enjoyed learning the story behind the soup...thank you so much for sharing this with us today, and I hope you and your husband have a blessed Good Friday, and a Happy Easter.
With hugs and love, Francy

Absolutely gorgeous Fabby! Anyone who dines with you dines in elegance and love.
Happy Easter to you,

SavannahGranny said...

Fabby, this is soooo beautiful. I love the lovely china and the soft and delicate design. I love your Calla Lilies.
Mine did not preform well this year. I think we didn't have enough cold weather. Lots of green leaves but only blossom. I cut it for an arrangement.
It is so nice that the two can have dinner on that lovely table. It is such an elegant setting.
Have a Blessed and Joyful Easter, Love to you,
