FABBY: A Yellow Summer Tablescape


Hello sweet friends!

I had four yellow rimmed dinner plates and four adorable lemon salad plates, so I thought they'd be perfect for a happy Summer's table scape.

We are going on a three hour drive to visit our daughter Sofia and her family this Wednesday, but specially to celebrate our oldest G'girl Victoria's 10th. birthday!
It seems to Alejandro and me that it wasn't long ago she was a tiny little girl who made us the happiest and proudest grandparents for the first time.

I know it's amazing how time flies, cause look, it's more than the middle of June already, and here I am thinking 2014 is still a new year; my mind works so slowly! 

I will be answering your sweet comments again, after a few days, as we will be back home next Monday.

Have a wonderful Summer all of you and enjoy wonderful sunny beach season.

Joining Kathleen for her "Whimsy tablescape Challenge at, Cuisine Kathleen."
My tablescape is not 'that' whimsy, but with yellow lemon plates and some real lemons, along with sea-shells for a Summer look.

The yellow dinner plates and the citrus salad plates make a very summery and fresh setting, along with the green stems, and colored glasses.



Butterflies and lemons.



Here you can appreciate how lovely the alabaster table top is.

For the centerpiece I used a glass round vase with sea-shells inside and a candle.


The four mugs are part of my everyday dinnerware. They come in green, yellow, blue and orange thin stripes, as the one here.

I used these Italian sherbets mostly for a delicious yogurt, coconut and fresh fruit that's mother's recipe for a Summer's dessert... and of course, for 'ceviche' too.

I love sea-shells for a Summer setting.




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

Thanking the gracious hostesses for having me at their great parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

I came here because the glasse do pop up in my blog's thumb. But ended up falling in love with those adorable dishes. And the non-tablecloth.
You're so daring in your creations. I would never pair yellow with sea accents. And what a loss I'm living? It's perfect.
Well done Dear Friend. And now I'm craving a Lemon Meringue Pie ;) ahahah
Take Care,
T

Bonjour ma chère Fabby,

Tout d'abord merci pour ce si gentil commentaire. Je suis heureuse que ma dernière peinture vous touche agréablement.

Une belle note de fraîcheur avec ces tons acidulés. Tout me semble si délicatement accordé. On pourrait se sentir au bord de l'océan pour un agréable dîner.
J'aime le décor de tes magnifiques assiettes avec ces charmants papillons.

Je te souhaite ainsi qu'à ta famille une belle fête d'anniversaire.


Gros bisous ✺ ♡ ✺

Hi, Fabby! I hope you are well on your way to visit your family now. Happy Birthday to your granddaughter!

I think this table has plenty of whimsy. You have butterflies and seashells included. VERY whimsical in my book!

This is a beautiful color combination. It really speaks to the season. I particularly like those salad plates. The design on them is bold and subtle all at the same time. Very pretty!

I hope you enjoy your time away!!!

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Fabby, Green and yellow together always reminds me of citrus, crispy and refreshing. Your table is so pretty and welcoming. Linda

This speaks summer with the use of pretty yellow plates and lemon salads on each place setting! Your centerpiece with the candle holder and shells is a great touch for summer, too. Have a grand time with your granddaughter on her birthday!

Zuni, Chickadee Home Nest said...

All I could think of, Fabby, as I enjoyed your lovely, refreshing table, was of a glass of ice water with lots and lots of lemon slices (one of my great pleasures in life!) What a pretty, pretty table, again, Fabby! You're probably ready to head back from your birthday celebration...I'm sure it was a joyous gathering. Our oldest little one is 6, and we feel just like you and Alejandro--where did the time go? She'll be a lovely young lady much too soon! Carinos, Fabby. ~Zuni

Pat Cantwell said...

Fabby,
It's been very b u s y here on the Prairie!!! This Yellow Summer Tablescape appears quite refreshing to me, dear friend! Not being one to drink my tea iced, I can truly see myself with a tall glass of lemonade at this tablescape.
Oh, the joy we could share sipping away and enjoying that gorgeous view from day 'til evening, dear one!
Happy Birthday to your Grandgirl!!!
Fondly,
Pat

Ooh so pretty! I still kick myself for throwing out some spring/summery yellow butterfly plates simply because a plate and dessert plate broke. Your table makes me happy. Stopped over via The Dedicated House Make It Pretty Monday.
