FABBY: Happy Mother's Day Ladies!



Hello dear Friends!

      Our DD Alexandra's engagement party was wonderful!
We had a fabulous time with so much family from both sides, you see, my daughter's fiancée is first cousin to Alejandro's first cousins on his mother's side. All in the family, so hubby knew this family forever and his future son in law since he was a young boy.

We are also very excited to announce that our dearest daughter is also pregnant three months. We can't wait to find out what she is going to have.
 
Our future son in law is divorced and has three adult kids, starting at 25, 22 and 16. He had married young; but just the same he is very excited with the new baby.

We will be alone with my mother this Sunday, as my both DDs will be out of town and Alexandra is going to live in Madrid, Spain.

This is how my table will be for Mother's Day 2015. I'm using mother's "Wawel-Polish" dishes she gifted me almost three years ago.

Wishing you, your daughters, your Dil's and if you are lucky, your own mothers, a truly wonderful, happy and blessed " Mother's Day 2015."



Mother gifted me with this lovely Polish set of eight china.
I can remember her always having it in NY and using it at many occasions all the time back then.

Therefore, in mother's honor I used her pretty Polish china for this Sunday, Mother's Day.

I placed some feminine figurines all around the table and here is the first, a country girl making potato dumplings.
I'd like to add that these adorable figurines were made back at our own "Ceramic Co., Monte Turi" by hand and by a very talented artist.

Another country girl is weaving the famous Panama hats, that are made here in Ecuador.

This is another country girl carrying water buckets from a near by water well-lol...

A dove sitting on a tree brunch and rose.
Red roses as a centerpiece.

For Mother's Day 2015 setting I used two chargers. The glass gold one is Turkish and it's quite large...and the second one is a cobalt blue ceramic charger made back at our 'Ceramic Factory' as well.

My mother's china is 'WAWEL-POLAND.'

I love the pretty dainty little blue flowers embossed on white porcelain... plus the shape of the plates and and the silver rim.

Since we love champagne we had some left over from our DD Alexandra's engagement party last Saturday, so we'll drink some on MD... and a little white wine mother likes too.
 


The glasses are etched by hand and are Viennese.
I have two sets of these Italian Venetian stems in two styles. Here I'm sharing the tall set, which includes the flutes.

A couple of silver candle holders.

The plate stack. Gold Turkish glass charger, ceramic cobalt blue charger and the Polish china.



The happy couple, Sergio and Alexandra.


The lovely friends that follow me know that Alejandro bought this vintage French table a year ago for our breakfast room and the one with the marble top we had was sent to DD Alex who now is renting her beautiful apartment furnished to some diplomats.

"I wish you all sweet and kind ladies from blog land a wonderful happy and very blessed Mother's Day with all your family females."

"The same goes for all the lovely hostesses I will be joining their great parties this Mother's Day weekend."

Thank you so much.

LOVE,
FABBY

Happy Mother's Day to YOU, Fabby! Once again, the beautiful table you show is matched by the night scene outside the window.....

I love how you placed the feminine figurines so appropriately amidst the beautiful Polish tableware....

Seems like you have had a really nice family event :) We went 5 hours away towards south for a nephew's confirmation. A lovely weekend with lots of relatives :)
Happy Mother's day! (we don't celebrate it now). A beautiful table you have set, with blue and white. I really like the cobalt blue ceramic chargers!

Happy Mothers Day.
May your daughter be happy forever. She is going to need a lot of wisdom dealing with his children who are almost her age. Love is not always smooth; but it is full of excitement and worth every moment. Love is strength and tenacity as well as affection. This shines through your whole family.
