FABBY: Blue and White for Winter in January


Hello sweet friends!

My week has been so very busy, hosting Three Kings Day tea party and today I had a luncheon with my dearest cousins, mother, Alejandro and me.
 
My cousin Silvana lives in Tampa, Flo. and is here visiting us. She is from NY originally like me, so we grew up together with another lovely cousin back in Tampa.

Such fond memories from my aunt, uncle and our childhood. We had a great time reminiscing wonderful bygone days.

I did a luncheon with my cousin, who is from here, such a lovely girl... mother and Alejandro and of course, my special guest from Tampa. 

Even though my C'mas décor it's still at present, because I haven't had a minute this week to put anything away, except for cooking and baking nonstop. I created a 'Winter- January' setting with my blue and white Onion dishes for my cousins' luncheon.

With that said; here is my 'January-Winter 2015' tablescape for a luncheon.


I always love the crispness of white linens with a blue and white china... as it does remind me of Winter time.


I used this pretty white organza cut work tablecloth on top of a blue and white one... not a very elaborate table for this luncheon.

The blue and white Onion pattern dishes are ever so pretty and such a classic.
They are from many different places in Europe as: Germany, the Czech-Republic, as mine are, although I have some pieces to go with this china that are 'Hutschenreuther.' 
There are made in English and Holland as well.
No matter where they come from, I love them!

Here we are: me at your left end, my dearest cousin Silvana from Tampa, originally from NY like me. My cousin Polianna, the redhead, who lives here, but in Guayaquil-Ecuador; where my DD Sofia and my grandgirls live....and sitting is my dear sweet mother.
Alejandro is taking the shots, as usual he hates to show up in the pics, lol!


Here you can appreciate the two table toppers been used in this Winter tablescape. (look at my mom's half body in the back, hehe)

Thank you so much dear friends for your sweet and kind visits, you so make my day!

Thanking the wonderful hostesses for having me at their great parties.
I specially would like to thank and so show my appreciation to the generous hostesses who feature me at their lovely parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

Love your blue and white table...it is so nice to see something other than Christmas tables for a change. Beautiful tablecloths.
Nice picture of you and your family...bet you had a great time visiting, too.

Pondside said...

Such a lovely table, Fabby. Blue and white are my first choice for a table, whether elegant or casual. What a treat it must have been for you to be with your cousins and your mother. We are still allowed to be 'girls' when we are with our mothers!

Love the setting, the tablecloths too. So fun for you to have your relatives together. I keep my Christmas décor up till after January 6th and everything is packed away but things that work for winter décor like snowmen and of course red candle holders will be up till after Valentines day.
Have a fun blessed weekend

Dearest Fabby,
Lovely setting for your luncheon with sweet, visiting cousins!
Your Mom looks a bit tired; wonder if she needs to take a nap... One generation difference with us does make a huge difference!

Linda said...

How simply wonderful!!! I think this is my first time to 'meet' your mother!!
I am just now taking Christmas down here in Texas! It is my least favorite chore ever!!
Your table settings are all works of art!!
I am still entranced with that view from your window......I would linger there forever.....just watching.....

Teresa said...

And a perfect transition from Christmas to Life. Normal and Gorgeous and oh so elegant Life.
I thought I'd say wonderful things about the tablescape but your gorgeous family in the picture blindsided me - you all look so blissful. And beautiful! I already thought you had the most beautiful daughters and now I can see it runs in the family ahahahah.
About the tablescape there's nothing, I repeat nothing, I would change it because you can't upsize perfect. I love the linens you used and the effect of skirt you managed into it.
I'd tell you to rest but I can see now that work it's what keeps you going gorgeous.
Keep creating and keep inspiring us.
Love,
Teresa

Beautiful Fabby, I always love to see crisp white linens and blue and white dishes. I don't have a great deal of blue and white but so love looking at yours. Lovely picture of you and your family, all are beautiful. I know you must have had a wonderful time with everyone.

So pretty!Love your blue dishes on the gorgeous chargers. Love how you put it all together.

A Perfect Setting said...

Yes, I love the blue and white dishes as well! Your family is gorgeous and how precious is your sweet mom!! Lucky you for having her in your life. I also wanted to tell you that I really admire your fireplace. Did you have the wood put on or was it already like that? Thinking of doing mine soon--covering up the brick! Beautiful table, happy new year to you!

Fabby, you are just beautiful, inside and out! Looks like you girls had a wonderful time!

Candy S said...

Happy New Year Fabby. This Blue Onion tablescape is beautiful with the crisp white table linens, they are perfect companions to the blue and white pattern. Not only do you get to enjoy the natural light from the window the view of the city outside the window from your luncheon table is amazing.

You look radiant in the wonderful picture of you, your cousins and your beautiful mother. Truly this was a luncheon for all to remember.
