FABBY: Happy New Year 2013!

                                              HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013!

Hello my sweet friends!

Hope all of you had a great New Year's Eve. We went to a black tie affair at a couple of great friends' fabulous house mansion; among 100 guests, all them great friends and relatives..  where we all had, of course, a fabulous time! They had an orchestra, all night,  great food and drinks, lots of desserts and and stunning surroundings! Came back home at 3am! I can't believe one year has come and gone so fast, and my new year's resolution is going to be to "saviour" each day of this 2013, so to make it last longer..like a child taking his time biting little pieces of a chocolate bar! We had a very blessed 2012..our girls are doing well each one and so are our little grand-girls, our Sil's spine operation was a success, thanks to the Lord and your prayers. We did a lot of great things around the house, and we are specially and foremost, in great health..which is the most important blessing of all! We are also blessed for the wonderful friends we have and we see each other often and my blessings continue,  for my two years of fun and enjoyable time blogging, this month of January and specially for all of YOU, my very supportive friends, which I have met through this "fabulous adventure" that is blogging. God bless you all in this new year 2013 and always!

Here is my tablescape to celebrate the New Year 2013. Me, all dressed up to go to the blacktie party at our good friends fabulous home.

My color combination for this tablescape is gold and white.

As centerpiece I did a cloche with C'mas balls in silver, aqua, gold and some green...to add a little glitter.

I did it with my gold glass Turkish chargers and my Noritake, white and gold dishes

My dear mother gave me this beautiful white satin holiday embroidered tablecloth two year ago for my birthday.

I will be at Let's Dish, the fun meme, terrific chef Kathleen hosts at, Cuisine Kathleen. See you there!
Wishing you a very happy, healthy, exciting and prosperous New Year 2013.


I will be joining some great parties this year too...so looking forward to another adventurous year in blogging and blog land. Thank you lovely hostesses!
