FABBY: Sea Inspired Tea Settings

Hello sweet friends!

Last Wednesday was the last of the month and it's when I host a Rosary prayer every month with some good friends.

Some bloggy friends that have asked for prayers, I'd like to inform you that 'we did' pray for your requests.

I never know how many will show up, but this time I had 14 lovely souls.

I did fix the small table for five ladies and the formal dinner table for nine sweet ladies too.

The large table was sea inspired as was the round table. I served home made bread, this time, and store bought bread. Cheese and two kinds of home made jams.

Ok, here is the large table inspired in 'Summer by the Sea.'

My coastal tea table setting for our July Rosary prayers.
Blue and white tablecloth to blend with the sea inspiration.

Lots of shells and vintage JBros. fish plate to serve cheese.

Antique heirloom French 'Art Nouveau' bowl with natural sea shells from Alejandro's gandparents with their initials engraved in gold, which are like ours too CA !... so lucky!

Italian Tognana teacups and saucers.

'Multiple Choice' pastel fish plates from a set of four place settings.
I will use them with some sweets and cheese pieces for tea.

The ceramic shells were made at our past factory. I will place the jam in them here.

My home made bread... my mom's and grandma's recipe.

The round table from our breakfast area was set for five ladies.

Here I placed the ceramic shells for ice-cream, salad plates for bread and jam and some more fish plates for cheese pieces.

The ceramic shells are for ice-cream with the ice-cream shell spoons.

The tea set came with eight teacups and saucers and is an antique from: BABARIA - Made in US Zone, GERMANY.

Finally, I placed in this table a small hand crocheted tablecloth by a friend and under it an eggplant color one so to appreciate the pattern that is whites on whites in three shades.

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

A special big thanks to the generous and supportive hostesses that had me featured last week at their great parties...such an honor!


Thank you lovely hostesses for having me at your great parties each week.
