FABBY: Christmas Past Tablescapes

Hello sweet friends!

I just got back again from my daughter Sofia's as we attended the First Communion of a young g'boy of Alejandro's cousin. Everything was wonderful as usual.

I've had no time to do any posts these days, so as I was looking through my tablescapes and decorations at my blog-home from Christmas past, in order to start inspiring myself in decking the halls, I decided to re-post some of them.

Here they are:

Christmas 2010, before I had the French vintage table in the foyer, instead I had a red antique Chinese trunk from my Mil and I always used to take it out of the way to do the tree.
Christmas 2012 with my then new red transferware set for twelve place settings and my Lynn's Fine China Christmas dishes from almost twenty years ago.

Christmas 2011 table for my g'girls, with doggies.

Hanukkah Table 2012 for my Jewish friends.

Christmas with my everyday dishes for the Holidays.

Everything in this setting from 2011 was French, starting from the antique bowl, antique table with the marble and finally the dishes from my mother and goblets from my Mil.

Christmas 2010

Christmas 2011

Here you have some Christmas tables to start the "lovely season to be jolly."

Thank you sweet friends for your kind comments, you always make my day.

Thanking the lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at their fabulous parties.

  1. Every single setting is beautiful!Just the shot in the arm I need to get me going! I am DE-decorating this week. Taking down ALL of my beloved fall and preparing to don the house in Christmas dress! As much as I love fall - I am ready for a change in seasons. It is cold in Texas this morning and going to get even COLDER today, tonight and tomorrow! Perfect weather for changing into winter decor!
    Now - as always - I'm going back to slowly savor all your lovely photos once more!

  2. Fabby, it is so nice to see some of your past Christmas decor! Everything looks so beautiful, as always!

  3. Dear Fabby, I am glad you enjoyed the Communion celebration. It is such a beautiful occasion to celebrate.

    Your Christmas tables of past are elegant and beautiful. I am sure that this years Christmas table will be just as beautiful.

    Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  4. I'm in love with the 2011 French Setting. So lovely. So soothing. PERFECT! For that lovely night or day.
    I'm running around trying to decide where I'll put the Christmas Tree... my home office went into that corner, remember?!
    Thank you for sharing your past Christmas. Always so much beauty and fun around you. Within too.

  5. Thanks for all of the wonderful inspiration, Fabby. xo Laura

  6. Ohh! They are all gorgeous but I am loving 2011 with the pale turquoisey French theme! I seem to be looking at more non conventional colors and liking them!

  7. Fabby,
    Everyone of your tablescapes are gorgeous. I love the turquoise so much. You just might be seeing some turquoise at my home this Christmas. :) Love that color!! Have a fabulous week!

  8. Dearest Fabby,
    You for sure are the winner for all sorts of china display, be it for Christmas or other events.
    All photos are just lovely and you know how to set an elegant looking seasonal table.

  9. Wow, I love seeing them all on one post! You are so talented, Fabby. I think they are all stunning!

  11. These are all so amazing, that I couldn't possibly choose a favorite one. Blessings, amiga mia!

  12. I always love your table settings, Fabby. There is nothing like all the traditional reds and greens at Christmas but I do love the soft blue and white china that was your mother-in-law's too. Just stunning! Have a great week. Hugs, Pam

  13. You do such an awesome job at decorating FABBY! Your Christmas decorations over the years have been so beautiful. I look forward to seeing how you decorate this year. I know it is going to look just as great. Enjoy the rest of your week.

  44. Fabby, every meal tastes so much better at a beautifully set table!

  45. Fabby it is like window shopping for me looking at your very creative and beautiful table settings. I so love your china and what you can do with a table is just marvelous!

  46. Fabby, I really enjoyed seeing past Christmas's. I love, love the aqua French setting, and of course your transferware. I am so excited. I just found a set of about 24 at a thrift shop. I will be putting on my shelf in the living room for Christmas. All plates, but I do have one bowl I picked up a while back. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  47. Oh my goodness Fabby, Your elegant table settings gave me inspiration to start on my Christmas ideas. Beautiful, every one you shared. The table for your grands with the dogs is soooo cute. Also, the French setting and dishes are so elegant. I truly loved your post today.

    xo, Jeanne

  48. Your past decor is beautiful!!! I especially love your all of your red Christmas dishes. If I could have anything in dishes I would want red Christmas dishes. I have my eye on some right now... we'll see.
    I adore the turquoise dishes too, they are very lovely.
    I'm inspired!
    Hugs, Cindy
