Holy Week and Easter Table 2016

Hello sweet friends!

   Well, I'm finally over with my cold and cough, it's been five days of a very uncomfortable situation.

I created a tablescape specially for Holy Week because there's a delicious harvest soup that it's served at Holy Friday. It's made of many fresh grains and it's served with a fish stew sort of and we call it 'escabeche.'

My table is not fun or cute cause I haven't those darling elements for Spring and the adorable bunny plates most of you have. Therefore, my table is centered in the religious spirit of Lent mostly with a centerpiece I created for this purpose, along with my mother's Polish 'Warvel' china she parted with in my behalf a couple of years ago; purple stems, purple chargers and under cloth.

We will be four this Holy Friday and perhaps Easter as well, along with mother and a friend.
It's amazing we're at the beginning of the Spring season and already around the corner from Easter Sunday!

Wishing you and yours a 'Peaceful Holy Week and a very Happy Easter.'

                                     Many blessings for all of you my dear friends this Easter Sunday when HE is RISEN.

I used some purple for this Holy Week season in the stems, under cloth and the chargers are very purple but the pics don't give them justice, they look very dark.

'Warvel Polish' china my mom gave me couple of years ago.

The centerpiece has three cloches. One is with the cross and little sheeps under it and the others have nesting birds.

A close up. I hate all the glare, I even shot off the ceiling light.

The centerpiece tray evokes mostly the spirit of Lent. 

A little Spring in the buffet, using green and pink.


Well, I guess there had to be a couple of mischievous rabbits on top of my tea chest. 

'Warvel Polish' china and sunflower napkin ring for a Spring touch.


I placed underneath the lace tablecloth a purple cloth, which you can hardly see in the pics!


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

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

  21. Bonjour ma chère Fabby,

    Je tiens à remercier ma "grande fan" pour son adorable petit message qui me remplit de joie.

    Je suis émerveillée par cette très belle table et qui honore bien cette semaine sainte.
    Une grande délicatesse est apportée dans chacun des sujets. Un très joli raffinement qui te ressemble et que j'aime beaucoup.

    En revanche j'aimerais bien que tu soignes rapidement ce méchant rhume ! Ce n'est pas agréable du tout pour toi !... Je te souhaite un prompt rétablissement.

    Je te souhaite une très joyeux week-end pascal et t'embrasse affectueusement,
    Gros bisous ♡

    Happy Easter.

  31. Hi Fabby,
    Oh I love your home and what a gorgeous table setting. My eyes were focused on your sideboard and the three tier Lady Carlyle plate. Pink and Green - So Beautiful! Everything is very lovely! I hope that you had a perfect Easter! Karen

  32. So happy you are beginning to feel better. I think your setting is perfectly elegant, so love the symbolism of the three cloches, wonderful! I hope your Easter celebration was a wonderful one!

  33. Just beautiful! I hope your Easter was a very happy one dear!

  34. I am glad your feeling better Fabby! Thanks for sharing at HSH!

  35. Just beautiful!

    I *adore* your idea of having three cloches on your centerpiece featuring the theme of the day - that looks awesome.

    Hope your Easter was full of love, peace and joy! He is risen, indeed! Hugs! ♥

  36. It is so nice to see décor that REALLY reflects the meaning of Easter. Your table is lovely and reminds us that Easter is not about the bunny, but about the Lamb.
    Blessings to you,


I love to receive your sweet and generous messages. You always make my day !
