FABBY: My Past Valentine's Tablescapes

Hello sweet friends!

How are you dearest friends?  I hope the new year is coming along smooth. Mine it's been busy with guests from NY; my very sweet cousin I grew up with, as I shared in my last post.

As of now I've almost been a week at my DD Alexandra's house playing nurse and everything else cause she had an intervention done, an appendicitis operation.

Therefore, I'm busy again and Alejandro is alone back home and hopefully I can go back home and take Alex to my house to recuperate.

I wanted to inspire myself for a 2015 Valentines table, but I hadn't much ideas, so I'm posting some pics from my tables past to see what I can do now and not repeat

Here they are:

My very first Valentine's Table when I was just blogging, was of an Oriental style for 2011 





Valentine's Tea Party tablescape with Heart Carrot Cake. 2012

Antique Barbarian Tea set for Valentine's Day, 2012


I had just gotten this Polish china from mother, it was hers for nearly fifty years. 2013





Ok, here you have them; just some tablescapes I created for Valentine's Day in the past.

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

Fabby I love your Valentines Tablescapes all are equally beautiful....


Rita C. said...

Nice recap, Fabby, and I love your mother's china. I hope your Alex is on the mend - even if the appendix doesn't rupture, it's always an invasion when you have to go under anesthesia. Nothing like a mom's care.

Ivy and Elephants said...

Wow, Fabby! I was trying to pick a favorite, but they are all so beautiful I can't choose! Love the picture of you and the hubby!
Hugs and Happy New Year,

Sarah said...

It's always fun and useful to look back, isn't it? Your tables are each one delightful. Eager to see what you decided to do for this year. I'm looking back and thinking about this year's table too.
Hope Alexandra feels better soon. She has a good nurse! '-)

Linda said...

All beautiful tables!!! I'm partial to the one you did last year!

Marigene said...

Beautiful tables, Fabby. I haven't even thought about getting the red out, again...I need a couple more weeks.
Healing thoughts for your Alexandra.

Shelia said...

Hi Fabby! Oh, you always set a gorgeous table. I love your treasure trove of dishes! You'll have to show us sometimes where you keep them all! Thank you so much, precious lady, for popping in to see me and your sweet words.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Parsimonious Perfection said...

These are all gorgeous tables, Fabby! I especially love the 2014, it's phenom! Hoping all goes well with the surgery. :(

Miss Kitty said...

Oh my goodness...Alex had to have surgery?! I know you are a good nurse to her. Thanks for sharing your beautiful past Valentine's Day tables...all so lovely!

xinex said...

I love all your tables, Fabby. My favorite tea set is the barbarian and it sure does not look barbarian at all, lol. On the contrary, it looks very elegan....Chtistine

Dee M said...

I love all of your tablescapes, Fabby. They're all so pretty! I hope your daughter gets better soon. Thanks for sharing with us-- hugs! :)

Red Rose Alley said...

Your mother's Polish china is so pretty. I am part Polish myself. Your tables looks so sweet, and I was admiring the tea party one. I hope your daughter is doing well from her surgery. The healing process sometimes can be slow. Wasn't Jess' post about Martin Luther King so special? I wanted to thank you for pinning it. I appreciate that so much.

I wish you peace and lots of love in the new year, Fabby.

Hi Fabby, love all your Valentines tables. You have made me want to do mine now :)

Thanks for linking up to Creative Mondays..

Lady of the Manor said...

I so enjoy seeing collections of tablesccapes. You can get so many ideas on one post. Your tables are all gorgeous and unique.

I hope you daughter recovers quickly from her operation. I know she's feeling better now that you are there.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Your Valentine's tables are lovely, Fabby. I think my favourite is the last one with the lacy edged plates. I hope your dear daughter is recovering from her surgery well. It's wonderful that you can be there with her. Thank you for joining me for Tea Time.

All your tables are so sweet. And the cake looked delicious too. Hope your upcoming Vtines Day is filled with love.

Bernideen said...

So many wonderfully decorated tables Fabby. It's hard to choose but of course the one with all the teacups and teapot caught my eye right away!

kitty said...

All your Valentine tables are sooo pretty, Fabby,,that it's hard for me to pick a favorite one. You have so many pretty dishes and accessories that I admire.

Beth L. said...

I tried to find a favorite but couldn't. Each one seemed lovelier than the previous. I do hope things are going to smooth down for you families health soon.

Margie (aka Marglom) said...

I heart the lovely tablescapes!

Zaa said...

OMG Fabby..Your tables capes are always so elegant and classic... You have a real creative touch..Beautiful...Hugs

Deborah Montgomery said...

They're all beautiful, I maybe like the 2014 one best with the lavender glasses and pretty china. Looking forward to what you do this year. The restaurants are always so crowded and the prices very high on Valentine's Day here; I think dinner at home is much nicer. Especially at a table like one of yours!
Your poor girls have been through a lot lately. I'm sure you're a wonderful nurse.

Jay CraftySpices said...

Lovely setting, very inspiring.

Amy said...

Your table settings are gorgeous. I love that you have a different theme each year. Can't wait to see your 2015 creation. :)

Anonymous said...

They are amazing! This tables are really inviting and could really make dinner so posh!

Gorgeous tablescapes from your past Valentine's Day, dear friend!!!
Each is filled with inspiration!!!
Thank you for sharing!!!

Candy S said...

All of your Valentine's Day tables are lovely. My favorite is the 2012 tablescape for two. It is so romantic with the lovely bouquet and the pretty red and white plates on the golden charger. Your 2014 table is so sweet with the floral plates set on the lacy white chargers and the pretty amethyst/pink goblets are to die for. Thank you for sharing Fabby.... Candy

Teresa said...

I thought I didn't like Valentines until I saw your settings. So romantic in a classy way... but then you don't know or do another kind do you?
Stopped by to send you a warm hug and wishes that everything is well and leave eager to do a Valentine's tablescape on the 14th. This year Lent starts after it YAY! It's nicer this way.
Take Care Dear Friend,

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Fabby, I just love all your gorgeous tablescapes for Valentine's Day. Your treasures for each are stunning. Love the china from your mother. It is so nice to look back at past posts isn't it? I was just doing that the other day.
Thank you for sharing your talents for table settings. You always inspire!!
Have a special day and blessings to you!

Poppy said...

Happy New Year, Fabby!

All your Valentine Tablescapes are lovely, but I especially love the one of 2012 - that overhead picture is so beautiful!

All the best in 2012~!


The French Hutch said...

I love your Valentine's past Fabby, such beautiful inspiration. It is always fun to look back and should be brought out to enjoy again. I sure enjoyed seeing these. This has inspired me to start thinking about a valentine's table.

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

You sure know how to spruce up a table! Such a fun recap, they are all so pretty.
Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY.

The Charm of Home said...

So pretty! Your getting me in the mood for romance, on the tabletop! Thanks for linking up with Home Sweet Home!

Zuni, Chickadee Home Nest said...

Hola, querida Fabby! I'm so sorry to hear about Alexandra! You HAVE had your plate and heart full lately! What a good idea to recap on your posts! I sometimes forget what I've already done or used, so I could use some time in my old posts too! Every table is lovely; it's hard to choose, but the one with the heart carrot, so pretty! I'm glad I was able to visit and see all your lovelies! Carinos a todos, especialment a Alexandra! ~Zuni

Ruth W said...

Great reminders of Fabby's Fab tables! Lol! Always so are ahead of me...haven't done mine yet. Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Jann Olson said...

Hi Fabby, all of your tablescapes are beautiful! I like how each one is so very different. That heart carrot cake looks delicious! Wishing Alexandra a very speedy recovery. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Vel Criste said...

So hard to pick a fave, but I'm loving all the pink you had for 2014!

Maria C said...

Fabby, you are certainly not lacking in inspiration for Valentine's Day. Of course, you have the most wonderful husband and his love to use as a springboard for everything else. I never get tired of seeing your collections, so if you should repeat yourself, you won't hear me complain. Fabby, have you thought of perhaps adding a widget to your blog so I can sign up and get your updates on my email? I would love that!
