FABBY: Purple & White Table for Holy Friday

Hello sweet friends!

Hope your Holy Week is coming along peacefully and serene, in union with our Lord Jesus Christ. My white and purple table scape is specially inspired, on Holy Friday, since these color combination are morning colors, as Jesus was crucified for us on the Friday before Easter Sunday, which is when Jesus Christ ascended to heaven, for His ultimate glory; to be next to His Father, our Lord. May God bless you and your families this Easter Sunday.

My Mil's vintage iron cross.

The purple goblets are Polish and the wine stems are French from my Mil.

I used for this Holy Friday table scape my white with gold Noritake china.

The chargers are purple, which is hard to notice from the picture.
The mother and child ceramic boxes with bunny lids.

The setting was done in our alabaster, breakfast table with white lace place mats.

The purple little flowers are from our condo's garden.
A crystal rabbit at your left, a small pewter cross and a votive.

I folded the knife and fork in the napkin and wrapped it with a purple ribbon. Here you can appreciate a little of the purple charger, which came out so dark in the photo... with one of my mom's doilies; which purpose is "not to scratch" the charger with the dinner plate with the friction they produce, while we eat.
Oh my, the charger looks wine color in this light, but they are as purple as the ribbon!, lol.. 

The glass lazy-susan is great, because it's where we keep the S.&P. shakers, vitamins, medicine, coffee mate, Splenda, teas,, in this same table, for our every day use.
The tea or coffee station for after dinner.

A pretty Lladro Bunny.

The centerpiece flower vase, bunnies and votives are standing on the glass "lazy-Susan."
The vintage Belgium buffet is flanked by two modern lamps..a floor lamp with glass slits that form a ball shade and at the far end of the buffet is my Italian Kartell lamp, which is my order to make this part of the dining area a little more eclectic, by mixing old with new.

Thank you so much to all of you wonderful friends who leave me such sweet, kind and generous comments, you always make my day!!

Thanking the gracious hostesses for having me each week at their fun and exciting parties.

So beautiful, Fabby, I love the richness of this table, from the purple and the lovely china. Happy Easter to you and your family. xo

Simply beautiful! An elegant table honoring a blessed event. I loved catching a glimpse of city lights outside your window. I remember from previous post what a lovely view you have!

Je prends mon petit déjeuner avec toi ce matin... Mon humble bord de table est bien moins festif que celle que je dévore du regard dans ta publication.
Tout y est si délicatement pensé et disposé... Un raffinement qui me séduit à chaque fois. Le choix des petits rubans mauve est judicieux et met en valeur la pureté blanche de tes assiettes et des ces merveilleux petits lapins.
Je te souhaite à toi et à tous les tiens de joyeuses fêtes pascales.
Gros bisous

I think your table looks great! I love the purple flowers with the astromerias! I MUST have the metallic lamp on your buffet! It is to die for!!

KathyB. said...

Fabby, this table setting is truly my cup of tea! Classic, simple yet elegant, not too fussy. I love the Noritake china. I have a set of Noritake I use often because of the classic lines and the ability to change the settings with chargers, napkins, etc...

The Lladro bunny is precious.

Happy & blessed Easter celebration, because He is risen !

On Crooked Creek said...

Thank you for this elegant Good Friday tablescape honoring our Lord and Savior, dear freind!!! Our church has three huge wooden crosses outside and Friday they will be draped with purple...but come Easter Sunday, they are draped in white!!!
I love the white with gold china! Your purple stemware is splendid!!! Tying the napkin reminds me of the scripture afliated with the tomb! The turntable is such a great way to display your centerpiece and bunnies!!!
Have a blessed and glorious Easter...for He is Risen, indeed!!!

SavannahGranny said...

Oh Fabby, what a beautiful table. You use and display you family heirlooms so elegantly. I always enjoy seeing what you do. The Purple goblets are exquisite. Love the bunnies on the lazy susan.
Have a blessed Easter. He is risen!!

Sandi Lee said...

What a wonderful idea to do a Good Friday table. I'm off to change my childrens' table to a purple and white one since they have already been here for Easter! Love everything esp. the purple chargers-I have them too!

Marigene said...

Very pretty, Fabby. The goblets are such a pretty shade of purple. You always have the most beautiful flowers!
Happy Easter.

NanaDiana said...

Wow- That is beautiful, Fabby. The deep purple always looks so rich and regal to me. Love those chargers and what a great idea to use a doily to protect them. So you are pretty AND smart!?!!?! Love that lamp, too, by the way! xo Diana

Jewel Sauls said...

How lovely, Fabby, and I appreciate your reminder of the meaning of Good Friday. Easter is a special time on so many levels.

Teresa said...

I'm leaving for Church to celebrate Last Supper but didn't want to live without wishing upon you Blessings of Love and Health.

P.S. Gorgeous table. Don't touch a thing! I'll be back to enjoy it...

Dolores said...

Hi my sweet friend! I've missed looking at all your beautiful blog post. Hopefully, I'm back again.

Your Lladro bunny brought back precious memories to me. There was a sweet little bunny like yours (maybe the same). We were in France and I wanted to buy this little Lladro bunny and it was time for the bus to depart.... no bunny for me.... lol!

Your table (as always) looks magnificent!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Fabby, what a gorgeous Holy Friday table. I love the cross draped in purple. It reminds me that the King has indeed sacrificed His life for mine... and the promise of His resurrection!
I love the formality of your table and the sweetness of your bunny boxes!
Wishing you and your family love and joy this Easter!

Alycia Nichols said...

Hello, sweet Fabby!!! I love it that you created a table to commemorate Good Friday. This is really unique, and the use of the purple and gold is perfect! I love the way you hung the purple ribbon around the iron cross. What a statement that makes!!!

I know this Easter week is particularly special to you in light of the Pope's appointment, and I wish you and your family the very best of the blessed holiday!

Carol Z said...

Lovely table. Visiting from Barbara's, another New Yorker.

Sarah said...

What beautiful details, Fabby. The purple ribbon on the vintage cross, those darling bunny boxes, and all the pretty dishes and linens make for an exquisite table.
Happy Easter!

Oh Fabby, your table is just wonderful. It speaks to my heart. I love the purple and the draping of the ribbon. The china is just perfect. I must remember this tomorrow. Have a beautiful evening and a blessed Easter. xo marlis

Judy Biggerstaff said...

Oh Fabby, I have just been sitting here thinking about using purple in a tablescape for next week, then I see that you are using purple and white. Perfect, now you have inspired me with your beautiful table for Holy Friday. Thanks you, thank you.
