FABBY: A Hanukkah Tablescape

Hello sweet friends!

Here we are starting another week of December and the year will be over before we realize it!
I made this blue, white, silver tablescape to honor the Hanukkah Season, although I'm Catholic, but wanted to honor some of my Jewish friends in NYC and of course the Jewish bloggers. I used a pretty blue and white cotton tablecloth from India and my blue and white onion dishes. The Menorah was brought to me by my DD Alexandra several years ago from NYC, which represents the Festival of Lights.

 My first Hanukkah tablescape...hope you like it.
 This pretty Menorah, a gift from my daughter Alexandra is made of Lucite. The stemware is French from my Mil. The silver bowl I used here with silver, aqua and some green tree balls..was also a gift from DD Alexandra.
 The onion pattern dishes are one of my very fave patterns in "dish-land".
This Indian cotton tablecloth in blue and white is just perfect for this tablescape.
 The soup bowl I used here is Chinese, hand decorated...all nationalities, right? lol The chargers are pewter, to continue with the silver theme.
Here you have it..my first Hanukkah tablescape! Hope you join me at these great parties, as Blue Monday, Table Top Tuesday and Let's Dish.

Thank you so much in advance for dropping by, as you always make my day! Have a wonderful week and Happy Holiday Season to all of you.

Thank you gracious hostesses for having me at your terrific and fun parties.

Happy Hanukkah

LOVE,
FABBY

What a beautiful table of blue touches. I especially like your idea of placing a blue ornament on crystal candlesticks. Thanks for sharing.

You didn't select a picture, so as soon as I leave this comment, I'll do that for you.

Happy Blue Monday and Happy Holidays to you, Fabby.

LOVE this table. Polly's menorah is packed away in storage with all her belongings, this year. (She is between dwellings, at hthe moment) I hung a nice Hanukkah wreath on my door. We're Christian, but as we had many Jewish friends when she was growing up, she learned to love their traditions and celebrations, and continues to honor them.

I agree with the ladies... touch of aqua/blue or turqouise is really magical.

LOVE the candelabra. It's one of a kind (at least for me).

Wonderful setting as always, mi preciousa amiga.

Beso beso,

Hi Fabby! Oh, how sweet of you to do this tablesetting! It's gorgeous! We have a neighbor who is Jewish and they always put out blue lights and little dreidels in the yard.
You're so good at everything.

Beautiful Fabby! I love your candles, they really bring out the beauty of your table. Of course, the Hanukkah candles are much more important than that. But it does look really beautiful too : )
