Three Kings Day Luncheon


Hello sweet friends!

         I hosted a luncheon with family in honor of our nephew who lives in NYC and came to spend Christmas with his parents and rest of the family.

I cooked his favorite food and the setting for the table is themed Three Kings Day, as the 6th. of January they're honored in the Christian world. Some countries as Spain, Cuba and the Philippines celebrate with gifts for children and adults, just like we celebrate Christmas Day. 

Ok, here is my table, still looking so much like Christmas, lol..

The centerpiece is perfect cause the twig has a big bird's nest and a small one where I place little birds, but to celeb 'Three Kings Day' I placed Baby Jesus surrounded by the Wise men, Balthazar, Gaspar and Melchior.

 My mother always told us that the custom in Ecuador is for everyone to start dismantling the house of the Christmas décor after 'Three Kings Day,' or the 7th. of January... a custom she followed every year in the USA as well and so do I now.

The pitcher at your right was hand decorated at our former ceramic Company; Monte Turi.


 




Again my friends, have a wonderful, happy and blessed new year.

Happy Kings Day to you.

LOVE,
FABBY

Hi Fabby
Beautiful table and I love 'The Three Kings' I tried to keep the decoration up for one more day, but I started to de-decorate and get the new year started. Tomorrow night we have an Epiphany dinner at church. Thank you for sharing a beautiful table and a beautiful tradition.
Joyously,
Betty

Happy 3 Kings Day to you, Fabby. I know a girl who grew up in South America and collects sets of the 3 Kings. I like that tradition. Every time I see a set, I think of her. '-)
Beautiful luncheon!

Looking like Christmas because it is STILL Christmas ahahahah
Christmas only ends in the night previous to The Epiphany, or Visitation of The Three Kings/Magi. Last night. Today we Celebrate The Three Kings' Day and although it's not holiday in my Country (it is in our neighbor Spain) we still hold lunches or dinners with special remembrance over the date and happening.
Although your table settings make one feel like it's always Christmas. So much beauty and magic.
I hope you had wonderful - healthy, happy, joyful - celebrations among Family.
Happy New Year Dear Friend. Keep enjoying and sharing Beauty in Life!
Love,
Teresa

Very festive Three Kings Day table setting for your special luncheon!
Yes, we too have been brought up in that tradition, Christmas is over after Three Kings Day and that's when you put up everything till the next time.
Sending you hugs and blessings,

Your table is gorgeous. It reminds me of the formal tables my sister always sets.

As a child, we always took down the Christmas decor on January 7th and I like that tradition. But, when I was teaching, I needed to get all the decor put away while I was still on school break.

Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!

Hurrah! So glad to see a lovely Epiphany table....not many people in the U.S. celebrate The 12th Day of Christmas, but we do. It's extra special because it's my birthday too! Your table looks inviting and pretty. Happy 2016 :)
