Hello sweet friends!
I finally have my Thanksgiving 2013 table in the formal dining table ready, as the breakfast table it's not ready yet and will be set for five or six settings.
I inspired myself this year for giving thanks to our Lord for everything, family, friends, and our home in the Andean mountains where I feel so safe..... using my dearest Mother in Law's antique china as it's ivory trimmed with gold and lovely pink roses with splashes of blue and proudly made in the United-States more than 70 years ago.....along with her lovely hand crocheted tablecloth and antique French Art Nuovo centerpiece bowl, arranged with some gourds.
Here you have it... I hope you like it.
|I remembered when my dear Mil would set her lovely tables with this hand made crochet tablecloth I always covet it and I was so lucky I inherited it from her!|
|I selected two chargers to anchor the stack. The first one is brown to stand out the reticulated ivory charger, as the tablecloth is ivory too and the china is of the same hues.|
|I used pine cones as name holders with a small card with a turkey printed on.|
|My house it's also 'beginning to look like Christmas!' Some 'bling in the chandy.'|
|I love the aqua-blue in the antique French bowl against the orange and green of the gourds.|
|I may be changing the bows into red, gold and green ribbons for C'mas.|
|I used my Polish pink and purple water glasses, paired with the Mexican hand blown for wine.|
Alejandro's own place setting. The breakfast table in the background will soon be set too. I'm thinking of setting it with a Christmas touch, I'm not sure, even if it will be for Tksgiving!
|I used to admire this hand crochet tablecloth so much and now I'm so lucky to own it..(sigh)|
|My house is "beginning to look like Christmas." The tree is done, which for me is the tough part of all! I will be sharing the C'mas Holiday decor around the house after celebrating Tksgiving, or along with it, lol!|
|I love these oil hurricane, I'm so glad mother gave me hers too, lol!|
|Tea or coffee station for after Tksgiving dinner.|
|While I was at my daughter's for the First Communion of a friend's g'boy, I bought this gorgeous white Portuguese pitcher.|
My Mil left Alejandro this lovely antique piece that was bought in France in the past early century and was engraved with their initials and they coincidental are our initials as well, C.A. This piece came from Alejandro's father side of the family.
Thank you so much wonderful friends for your sweet and kind comments, as you always make my day!
Thanking the lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at their great parties each week.
