FABBY: Thanksgiving in the Breakfast Table

Hello sweet friends!

      I said I was gonna share my breakfast table ready for Tksgiving and here it is set for four guests.

I used the dishes made back at our Ceramic Co., Monte Turi. The dishes were inspired in the indigenous people of Ecuador, beautiful hand embroidered apparel. I also designed these patterns and we had 14 pattern desigs and had them hand decorated entirely, besides the fact that they were also 'hand-made' by a Potter's Wheel...for some who don't know what that is, it's just like what Demi Moore was doing in the movie Ghost.

These dishes are multi-colored, but predominantly orange and some cobalt blue in the plate's edges, therefore, I used my newest blue water stems and sherbets to match.

And last, but not least, I chose my beige openwork tablecloth, as the friends that have followed me know I bought it on sale back in July at 50% off.

Ok, here you have it.

The hand made and hand decorated dishes from our former Ceramic Co. I explained about them at the heading of this post.

The lovely tablecloth with the openwork I bought with a 50% off on sale back in July.

The blue water stems I bought a dozen around a month ago, along with the blue sherbets to match...always thinking for my blue and white dishes.

Each place setting has a wicker and cane chargers.

I always find cloches a great centerpiece for a small tables, because they hardly takes up any space, specially if they're raised, like here.

I love the pattern on the dinner plate with the orange center.

Dinner plate, salad plate and bread plate.

To elevate the cloche with the gourds and small pumpkins I used a cake pedestal from the same china.

The candle holders are also part of the china.

This station is set in the marble pull out tray from the antique Belgium buffet, which is a detail the antique pieces had. I'm sure you can hardly see them, but the espresso Peruvian antique spoons are sterling with jade, and were my Mil's.

The cups are small demitasse for espresso coffee for after Tksgiving dinner. Notice the sugar bowl and creamer have ducks in the cute!

"It's beginning to look like Christmas" too, lol!

 The amber wine glasses are Italian-Mario Santini... and I love them paired with the blue water stems.

Alejandro's grandparents English buffet is decorated for C'mas now. I'm really all decked out, so after the Tksgiving is over, C'mas will be all set to go at our house, lol!

The Christmas tea set was also made back at our Ceramic Co. I designed the pattern from a holiday piece of cloth. I have many pieces like this for the C'mas holidays.

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments my sweet friends, as you always make my day!

Thanking the lovely and gracious hostesses for the great parties they host each week for us.

  1. Such gorgeous pieces, Fabby. The ladies there must wear very colorful garments. Love all your dishes and the Holiday tea set too. Thanks for all your sweet comments....Christine

  2. Fabby- It looks just beautiful. i really love it. Your cutwork tablecloth is just a gorgeous backdrop for your lovely dishes. I hope you have a wonderful time with your friends at that table!

    I have to tell you- the wedding I went to last weekend-our friend's mother came here from Ecuador. Her husband started the first YMCA there. I will have to find out her last name-I only know our friend's last name and her name is the family she married into here. I told the mother that I had a friend in Ecuador (through the internet) and that the family used to own a porcelain/dish factory. Oh- she said- what is their last name? I said- I don't know - she said- You don't know your friend's last name? lol She does not quite understand how blogging works-that you can be friends of the heart with no names attached.

    Have a wonderful night- xo Diana

  3. I have always loved this pretty china Fabby. It's so colourful and nice for Thanksgiving. Your table looks beautiful. The Christmas tea set is gorgeous too. Take care. Hugs, Pam

  5. Love those plates - although at the moment Im on the lookout for more neutral coloured plates for food photos - I love the brightly coloured ones but have decided that they often detract from the food. Cheers

  6. It looks beautiful, Fabby! So elegant!

  7. Dearest Fabby,

Your table linen is stunning and lucky you to find it discounted! The cloche is always a wonderful touch. I have one on my counter top all the time and it's fun to keep it filled with our favorite sugary treats. I like the idea of placing the gourds inside! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Fabby!
