FABBY: A Simple Lace Tablescape

Hello sweet friends!

      I am joining Kathleen's at Let's Dish for her new challenge...a NEW table with NO Easter!

My table setting is simple, inspired in the lovely lace-cut work tablecloth, which I haven't used it yet and bought on sale last year sometime.

The reticulated chargers and teacup-saucers; my mother's lovely vintage aqua 'French Limoges' set of dishes and lace napkins to close this 'simple lace table scape.'

I hope you like it!

My inspiration for this table scape is this lovely lace cut work tablecloth I bought on sale last year.

Therefore, along with mother's French Limoges dishes she gifted me several years ago...I used reticulated chargers, lace napkins and the reticulated teacups and saucers, instead of the aqua ones.

The fresh bouquet of flowers I bought today in the grocery store for $. 1,15.
The etched stems are Viennese and I used only the wine ones, so to keep the setting in the 'ethereal side.'

I love the center lace in the cloth.

The Limoges dishes are aqua and ivory, (not white).

I adore fresh flowers and always have them at my house to cheer me up and enjoy them.

Alejandro gave me this past February for our 39th. Anniversary this gorgeous 'Fleur De Lys' Portuguese pitcher, which I can't seem to stop using it with flowers, lol!

The stack of dishes and ivory flatware to match, except the light made them appear yellow !

The napkins are ivory with lace too, as are the lacy saucers in the teacups.
The napkin rings are wooden animal print.

Here you have it, my contribution to "A new Tablescape for LET'S DISH" at,

Thank you so much for visiting me dear friends, you always make my day!

Thank you Kathleen and the other hostesses for having me at their great parties.

  1. Fabby - That is just beautiful. The tablecloth set the stage for your mother's beautiful Limoges and EVERYTHING is just gorgeous!!!!
    The flowers are wonderful, too.

    You do some of the most beautiful settings I have ever seen, Fabby. I hope you had a wonderful day.

  2. What a simply elegant table setting Fabby....I love it! Your lacy tablecloth is just gorgeous and the dishes are perfect! Hugs, Penny

  3. Fabby,
    This Simple Lace Tablescape is EXQUISITE, dear friend!!!
    Your Mother's china is such a tranquil hue of aqua.
    Ethereal, indeed!!!

  4. Absolutely beautiful table scape my friend and that is one gorgeous table cloth I love it...


  5. What a pretty spring table with the aqua dishes and the delightful bouquet of flowers. Love the way the table cloth drapes on your round table.

  6. I love how the cutwork dishes complement the cutwork dishes, dear Fabby. Your idea of always having fresh flowers to cheer you is one that I need to borrow. xo

  8. It's like a table setting for Tiffany's! Love your China fabby, that color is perfect especially for spring! Just lovely!

  9. Dearest Fabby,
    That sure is a lovely table setting with the lace cutout table cloth!
    Your dear Mother's aqua dishes are so pretty with the flowers too...

  10. Absolutely stunning! The Limoges is gorgeous. How blessed you were to receive it. I always love the way you put a table together (especially when you use some of your very unique family designed tableware.)

  11. Fabby, I am absolutely swooning over that fabulous tablecloth - how pretty it looks in the photographs. Also, I think your blue plates are the perfect pop of color, along with your pretty flowers. You always manage to set such an elegant table!!

  12. This is such a pretty table Fabby. I love the French Limoges china - so beautiful - and the pretty table cloth is perfect with the cream lacy dishes. What are the taller flowers in your bouquet? Have a wonderful day. Pamela


  13. Awesome setting near the bay window.Fallen in love with the tablecloth.Gorgeous piece.Truly a spring table to enjoy every bit.Love and hugs sujatha..:):)

  14. So the aqua dishes. Very pretty!

  15. The Triumph of Femininity. or a Hymn to it. That's what I'd call this setting. WOW!
    Dear Fabby I believe that's hopless romantic and lovely. I already envied those chargers before but paired with Mother's Lovely China I was floored.
    So much beauty and whimsy created, Dear Friend!
    Tablecloth is precious too and again Lace is something so Feminine. Even more Spartans Eras - like Victorian - reserved that exquisite detail for the most important moments of your life.
    You throw grand big parties but when in a small one you seem to be even better... or it is the case that I don't get lost in so much lovely details so easily ahahahah
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

  16. Ooh, Fabby, I can see why you had to have that tablecloth. It is gorgeous!!! And, your entire tablesetting is magical. Each element is so pretty, and like you, I love having fresh flowers in my home.

    Hope to see you for Pink Saturday this week.♥
