FABBY: Blue, White, & Red Transferware


Hello sweet friends!

I want to start by thanking you so much for your great and generous comments on our trip to Florida. I am still catching up with you my friends, as I just had to be absent from blogland again for a couple of days, because I had to be present and went by plane's distance, for  a beloved aunt's funeral..one of dad's youngest sister and it took place in another town. She lost the battle of stomach Cancer... she was 79.

My table is in honor of my dearest country too...The United States of America. I bought from Florida these cute star plates for 99 cts. each at Michaels. I also used my red transferware salad plates and a lovely blue dinner plates with red carnations made back at our company and finally red chargers. I hope you like it.

I also pray and wish the USA be safe and be blessed by our Lord, for ever! 
Wishing all of you my friends in the US a happy, safe and to enjoy a terrific 4th. of July weekend.
 
Have fun and eat yummy food too!

I will also be joining lovely Alison for her great party at FAVORITES ON THE FIRST at, http://thepolohouse
She is having a patriotic challenge on July 1, 2013.



I placed inside the crystal vase a few limes, flags and my Bil's beautiful red and white roses.

Banana cupcakes and berries in the sherbets.


I just added the United States Anthem, that my best friend Stephanie just gave me.
I love the star plates...here's one with the flag...

 

another plate with little white stars...

another with red stripes...

..love this one with the red and blue stars too. I placed in each a blue sherbet with red, yummy strawberries.

I thought the blue framed dinner plates, made back at our company, hand decorated in a doily fashion with red carnations, where just perfect for my Patriotic setting.

I paired the blue dinner plates with the red salad English Transferware plates.

The cutest star plates I just got from my trip to Florida.

Finally, I topped all the plate layers with blue sherbets.




A close up of the cute cupcake. The red linen napkins are paired with paper patriotic ones, along with red, white and blue enamel napkin rings. The red wine glasses are Italian from my C'mas stash and next my very old blue glasses from 1975.

Some more blue and red banana cupcakes.

The setting is by 'blue' candle light since I arranged it in the evening.













 




 


Happy Fourth of July to all of you!

Thank you my friends for visiting and for your sweet and lovely comments, as they always make my day!

I thank the lovely ladies for the wonderful parties they host each week.


LOVE,
FABBY

Here is my sweet Victoria wearing proudly her patriotic blouse, shorts and star necklease.

Well, My dear, dear Fabby- You have OUTDONE yourself for the USA- which isn't even your home country. You make many of US want to stand up and cheer and maybe be able to do 1/2 the presentation that you put on there. You are amazing!
I love that you bought dishes to celebrate the Fourth of July and decorated for it. Blessings to you- I hope you have a wonderful week. Look this way on the 4th-we have HUGE fireworks!;>) xo Diana

Hi Fabby, happy 4th of Juy to you and to all Americans out there. May our dear Lord look after your whole nation and keep everyone safe especially on the day of this important event. The tablescape is so inspiring and very creative and don't forget very patriotic too.

My deeepest sympathy to you and the rest of your family. I hope your family is coping well. Cancer is such work of evil.

And oh your banana cupcake look so yummy!!

Thank you for stopping by in my blog.

Wishing you a safe weekend.

Hope you have a great Sunday and hugs to both you and your DH Mr. A.

What a beautiful patriotic table, dear Fabby! I love all the dishes in your display. The star plates were such a bargain. Your centerpiece is perfect!

Babs said...

Fabby, You constantly amaze me with your tablescapes...and those cute star plates...what a cool "souvenir" from your Florida trip. I love the way you mixed in your transferware and the blue edged carnation plates, too.
Thank you so much for making a wonderful tablescape to celebrate the 4th of July.
Hugs,
Babs

Susan Nowell @ My Place to Yours said...

Fabby, what a generous heart you have decorating for the 4th of July in honor of us here in the United States. Thank you! Your new star plates are the perfect addition to your tablescape, but it's the GOLD that's catching my eye! Why have I never thought to add that to my red, white, and blue table? It's so festive! Of course, I always love dishes you created, and the red carnations plate is wonderful!

I was sorry to learn of your aunt's passing. May you be comforted by special memories of your times together.

Sarah said...

Such a fun festive table, Fabby. I want to stand at attention and just marvel at this beauty. It makes me realize that I need to put my laptop aside and get busy on my own patriotic table. Ha! Having too much fun catching up on blogs now that house guests are gone.
Cute star plates and wonderful mix. You amaze me!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Hello Fabby. Happy Sunday friend. You just got back and you still manage to put a fabulous table together. Such pretty details. Your plates are beautiful.

Happy Fourth of July to you and your beautiful family.

Maria C said...

Fabby, I'm so sorry for your loss! It's good to have you back, though.

Your table is wonderful. Those roses are so, so beautiful! Your blue and white dishes are among m favorites.

Have a wonderful 4th, my friend!

Alycia Nichols said...

Those star plates are really terrific! I love it that they come in several different patterns! I would love to find some of those to add to my collection.

Banana cupcakes? Those sound pretty good! I'm sitting here now sucking on a strawberry/banana shake. I can't eat bananas straight out of the peel (makes me gag!), but I do love them in things.

I'm really, really sorry to hear about your aunt. Stomach cancer is just awful, and I hope the poor dear didn't have to suffer. I hope that someday that bad old cancer can just be blown off the face of this earth!!! It's what took my Daddy's life, too, and I hate it!!!

Blessings to you and your family. Take care!

Ann Krucek said...

I love the way your have mixed and matched all of your plates for a Fabulous 4th of July Table!! Cute little model at the end there too!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Fabby,
You definitely are the queen of table setting! What a lovely star plates you did bring back home from Florida and I LOVE your adorable granddaughter.
So sorry to hear about the loss of your aunt and 79 is certainly not very old. Hope she did not have to suffer before she found her eternal peace.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Zuni, Chickadee Home Nest said...

Hola, querida Fabby. I am so sorry to hear of your aunt's passing. Dear aunts are just that--DEAR. They hold a special place in our hearts, and I hope the memories you have of yours will bring you comfort. Just tonight, believe it or not, I was thinking about you (again), because I've been absent from blogland myself, so I didn't know you had been too, and I was thinking I would email you to check in and say hello, then I found your beautiful post (as always). Your star dishes are perfect for your perfect table, and the deep blue compotes are beautiful! Oh, and the most beautiful? That darling Victoria! She is just too, too cute (tell her I said so!). I hope you're able to celebrate the fourth and all that it means to us here in the USA. So happy to connect with you again! ~Zuni

SmilingSally said...

Ooo, this table is just perfect! I love those star plates too. Thanks for sharing.

Your granddaughter is so pretty.

Happy Blue Monday, Fabby.

Hi Fabby!

Loving every little detail of your table!I would not have thought of mixing the transferware with the stars and stripes and it TOTALLY look amazing!
You are so clever.

So sorry for your family's loss. The older we get the more loved ones we lose --- do not like that part of the aging process at all. Thinking of you, sweet friend.

Fabby, Your post is beautiful. I don't know how you had time to do all this. So many great details.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I got chill bumps reading your preface to your photos. You have such a dear sweet heart.

I am working on my Fourth Table now. It is a little late but life has been hectic.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

What a beautiful tribute to our Independence Day...your table is just so beautiful with so many amazing touches and ideas...I love how you stacked the plates of the various shapes to create a wonderful place setting...Victoria is so cute in her outfit!!...and I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved aunt!

Designs By Pinky said...

First, Victoria is just beautiful! I do love your patriotic table Fabby. The dishes you use are always so pretty. Thanks SO much for your visit. We just got home from vacation too but my Joe has pneumonia so it wasn't a fun vacation for him at all. Hope you had fun in Fl. XO, Pinky

Diane | An Extraordinary Day said...

Oh Fabby, it is so difficult to say goodbye to someone so dear. Several years ago I did the same to my favorite aunt. Her sweet memory lives on and I often share my favorite dishes of hers (red & white transferware) and even the ruby red juice glasses on my Americana table were hers too.

Your table setting is so very fun and festive. And you were wise to snatch up those fun star plates. I love how each is different...so whimsical! You blue framed plates really are a lovely addition. I am totally smitten with they're sweetness. :)
God bless America....and Happy Fourth to you.

Hello Fabby,
Your table is totally patriotic, and perfectly American looking! YaY! You always do the most incredible tablescaping. Every detail you have included works so well together. I need to take a lesson from you and make more of an effort on my tables.
I am so glad you had a good trip to Florida. I hope we Americans were good to you.
Thank you for the blessing on our country. You are so kind! May I return the gesture and say Many blessings on your country and to all your family.

What a fabulously patriotic tablescape, FABBY! You live up to your name. LOL

I hope, next year, I can remember to use my transferware for such a table. I never think of it!

Your sweet granddaughter is GORGEOUS & how fun that she wears the colors so proudly.

Hope you have a lovely weekend planned.
