FABBY: June's Rosary Gathering Tea

Hello sweet friends!

As you all know by now that I host a 'Rosary Gathering' prayer with some special ladies, every last Wednesday of each month.

We're about ten, sometimes more and after prayers we have a very simple tea, with bread, cheese, home made jams and sometimes something different cause someone brings it, or I make.

Here is my last Rosary tea party for June.

I used for the June's Rosary this lovely Belgium lace tablecloth I bought so many years ago for my daughter Alexandra's First Communion. Underneath it is a pink topper to give the setting a little color.
The teacups and saucers are Italian Tognana.

In June the town of Cuenca celebrates 'Corpus Christy' and all over the town's square there are these delish cookies and are a must have this season.
Here I have them in the rectangular platter.

The pretty pink cyclamen came from my kitchen sill.

A close up of the Italian-Tognana teacups and saucers...and of the lace tablecloth.

Dogs knife rests at right.

Rustic brown French bread. The squares servings in back are pieces of cheese ready.

Corpus Christy sweets; the town's custom in June.

The two flower platters were made at our former Ceramic factory.

I'm so glad I remembered this lovely Belgium tablecloth for this tea table.

The plain teapot at your right was made at our past ceramic factory.

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

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their parties.

  3. Your table looks so pretty, Fabby. Love the all white dishes. xo Laura

  4. I came here to look at your French table but I see this pretty tea scape instead. I love the lace tablecloth, Fabby, it is exquisite. The china set you used looks very elegant and the sweets, mmmm, I want to eat some right now. Yum!....Christine

  5. This is so pretty, Fabby! What a lovely setting for tea with the ladies. I am sure they feel so special at any table that you set!

  6. so lovely, Fabby, and such a treat for your dear friends. That tablecloth is stunning! Everything looks so beautiful; I wish I could be there with you all! (And the peek I got of the platters made at your factory tells me they are really gorgeous!)

  7. Another lovely table, Fabby. Pretty tablecloth! That plate of cookies sure looks appealing and I like your plain white pots too. Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea.


  8. Hello Fabby,

    This lovely time together is made even more special by your sweet hospitality and your beautiful table settings. The tablecloth is so very pretty!

  9. Another beautiful table, Fabby! Those cookies do look delicious!! Enjoy your week!

  10. Dearest Fabby,
    Such a lovely setting with the Belgian Battenberg lace tablecloth.
    I also noticed your lovely dessert knives and the cheese knife with its special pointed tip. Such pieces are so typical Old World that it makes my heart sing when I spot them.
    Lovely table setting all in all.
    Sending you hugs and blessings.

  11. What a lovely way to show your ladies how special they are.

  12. How nice to have such a large group of ladies to have...they must love coming! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  13. You need to open this in Skype and let me pray with you and your lovely friends. I'll even forgo the cookies (it hurts but I'm Christian enough ahahahah).
    I pray Rosary almost every day. We have a streaming live with Our Lady of Fátima Sanctuary and I pray with "them". No cookies there or at my place :( world needs more Fabiolas! and whenever I listen and pray the Rosay I think of you and this occasions at your place.
    You add blessing to the blessing. With your example and thoughtfulness.
    Tablecloth - 20 points
    The added pink - too lovely. One can imagine how Our Lady loves that in this setting happens this dedication
    Dog resters - above and beyond any scale

  14. Beautiful table setting Fabby, oh how I wish I could join you ladies for the rosary, I just attended my aunts rosary prayers for the two year anniversary of my uncles passing! But we had a dinner :-) thanks for sharing sweetie ;-)


  15. This setting is so posh! Everything looks lush! #WW

  16. As always Fabby, your tables is absolutely stunning! The lace tablecloth is so beautiful and delicate; and the doggy knife rests are so stinking cute!

  17. What two lovely things to share: the rosary and a tea party. I'm happy to meet you, Fabby! I joined in Martha's Favorites Tea Cup Tuesday today, which is something I haven't done in WAY too long. I'm enjoying every blog stop I make!

  26. Another beautiful table Fabby! Lovely goodies too!

  27. That's one of the most beautiful, welcoming tables I've ever seen---the simplicity of the bread and cheese, the sweetness of the moment and the sharing and the cookies of the season, and the grace of the prayers and the grasp of a hand with friends in such a setting, such a moment.

    Absolutely charming, and perfectly arranged, like a sweet time of Communion in heart and soul.
