FABBY: Spring Dinner Party

Hello sweet friends!

I hope you all had a lovely and blessed Easter weekend with your dear families.

About a week ago...actually, the Friday before Good Friday, we hosted a dinner party for some of Alejandro's school friends and their wives and we were 12. Therefore, I fixed two Spring tables,anyway.

Here they are, I hope you like them.

Have a wonderful Spring week enjoying good weather at your neck of the woods.

I used my dear Mil's beautiful hand crocheted tablecloth she had made so many years ago by a friend of hers.

I used a blue topper underneath to pick up the small blue flowers on the chine.

The butterfly napkin rings were made back at our Ceramic Co.

The pretty blue chargers were also made back at or former Ceramic Co.

The cloches and rabbits were here before my Easter table, hahaha..

Here you can appreciate the pattern of the china with small blue and pink rose buds.
I bought this china very many years ago to make big dinner parties, therefore, I have 16 complete place settings.

The dishes are: "Home Gallery"-Fine China.

I paired the setting with blue water goblets and blue napkin rings here, as well.

For the French round table I carried the same idea as the large dinner table, using an under cloth in orange and a lace white organza one on top.

Since I mentioned I have 16 place settings of this china, here it is again.

Here I used a brown charger and a green bird's napkin rings, paired with green goblets.

The centerpiece was a cloche with a bird's nest and some little sheep around it.

Here at the end of the large buffet I placed teacups just in case some like tea after dinner, or coffee instead.

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

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