FABBY: July Rosary Gathering Tea

Hello my sweet friends!

      Here is another Rosary gathering with friends, that has come and gone, the last Wednesday of each month.
It seems I'm often sharing these tables but no, they're are each month it's just that time runs between our fingers and we are now celebrating the First of August, my goodness!

Wishing all of you a wonderful August and may God bless you too!

For the July Rosary I chose my ever lovely, ivory reticulated dishes. I might add it's a complete set for 12 with chargers, as well.

This set of dishes came with two pretty hurricanes too.

The tea set is from another ivory and lace pattern, as my dishes didn't come with a tea service, but they matched pretty well, as you can see here...right?

I also found this ivory bowl in another place a few years ago and it became a fruit bowl for the centerpiece, opposed to flowers for a change.

We had the usual food: 'home made bread, bakery bought bread and home made jams and cheese.'

Here are my homemade jams, blackberry and strawberry.
The small cloches were a giveaway I won from lovely Chie and they are four and came with their small and cute spoons.

I used the dinner plate as chargers for more of an effect and to add more lace volume.

 The set for 12 has soup bowls as well and big chargers. It also came with service bowls and long platters and I bought two extra chargers, to use as serving big round plates.

The runner was crocheted by mother as a set with the big tablecloth she made for me several years ago.

Some of the friends that follow me know that the yellow tablecloth I re- purposed when I changed my 'yellow silk moire' draperies from the living room and family room to 'Hunter Douglas' shades a little over two years ago.

Thanking you so much sweet friends for your lovely and kind comments, they always make my day!

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

  3. What a beautiful table setting, Fabby! The runner made by your mother is truly exquisite. Making those beautiful pieces is such a lost art. How precious that you bring it out and use it for beautiful occasions! Thanks so much for stopping by Posed Perfection today and for following along. You asked about the goes live every Wednesday night at 8pm central. I'd love for you to join me whenever you can.

  7. Dearest Fabby,

    But give your dear Mother a compliment about that incredible crocheted lace table runner. So elegant with all the china. Love the fruit bowl too; great idea.

  10. Such an elegant table, Fabby. My sister has some of the reticulated dishes. They are so pretty.

  11. What a lovely table setting, Fabby. I just adore the simple elegance of this one, the layers of white lace and then the bold pop of fruit, all set beneath that spectacular chandelier. Beautiful, as always!

  14. The yellow and white are so very beautiful - the lace on the table and on the dishes just sets everything off wonderfully. A rosary gathering sounds like such a beautiful idea.

  15. You always set the most elegant tables Fabby. I love this pattern. Neutral yet very detailed and exquisite. The runner is the perfect addition to complete this look.

    Have a wonderful week querida amiga.

  21. Gorgeous dishes...I am so in love with those lacey edges. They are just stunning!

  22. What a peaceful tea table. How absolutely lovely!

  23. Hi Fabby: Another beautiful table to feast our eyes on. Love all the lace, they go perfect with the dishes.
    Have a great week. God bless you dear friend. Martha

  24. Fabby, you always create the most lovely tablescapes. I love the simplicity of this one, actually decorating with texture versus colour. It's gorgeous.

    I love the idea of hosting a Rosary Tea. I should do that with my church friends one day. It's a GREAT reason to gather together.

    God bless. Hugs.

  25. Hola Fabby, me encantó tu mesa, esa vajilla es preciosa, el calado es muy elegante, una maravilla.

    Un beso grande

  26. So beautiful Fabby. Love your china with the lacy edges. How perfect that hurricanes came with the set. What a treasure to have the runner made by your Mom.

  27. For the server, it is very important to stay clean and simple. The Abbey Brand Altar Server Front Wrap Alb is just for the servers of church and has been widely preferred as the classic cassocks all across the world. It comes with traditional design set, having long clean trails over white color fabric.

  28. Hi pretty Fabby, beautiful table and those dishes are gorgeous. Ypur Mom made a lovely lace runner that goes so perfect with those dishes. Eye candy for sure....xoxo

  29. This setting is gorgeous, as usual, Fabby. These reticulated plates are probably one of my favorites, they go so well with the crocheted runner. I love the yellow table cloth too. It looks very cheerful....Christine

  30. Your table setting is beautiful as usual! I bet all your friends had a wonderful time and I bet you are great at hosting a party. Enjoy the rest of the week Fabby. Take care.

  31. Another gorgeous Table, Fabby! Love the dishes and the lace runner is beautiful! Very, very pretty table.

  32. Hello Fabby, What a beautiful and elegant table. This is such a lovely set and perfect for the occasion. I love the runner you are using from your mom, a perfect choice. You never fail to serve up inspiration!
    Enjoy your day.......


  33. Fabby--this is such a pretty table! I really like those lacy dishes. The crochet runner your mother made is a wonderful match. Have a great weekend :)

  34. Gorgeous pieces and I totally adore the hurricanes!!!

  35. Beautiful dishes...look great on the yellow.

  36. Fabby, this table is gorgeous! I had seen your reticulated plates before, but they show so beautifully against the gold tablecloth! It's so nice that you still hold your at home rosaries. I used to be part of a group that held them regularly, but everyone moved away over the years and eventually, we had to stop them. It's such a lovely tradition!

  37. Fabby, this is a gorgeous table! The white dishes are elegant and the runner made by your mother is beautiful! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
