Three Setting for Hubby's 70th.Birthday !

Hello sweet friends !

I have been away for very close to a month. I hope you've missed me, if not, don't worry, I'm just teasing you, lol..

I've been away cause life has gotten on the way and since January 27th. I haven't stopped the cleaning, the cooking and so much that involves making a luncheon for 14 for a first group with my American friends (other friends that speak English too) who have invited us to a concert of classical music to their home and later to a great BBQ.

So I just did last Friday, Feb 3, my husband's 70th. birthday luncheon for 20 people, his siblings and his dear cousins, Alejandro grew up with and love so much.

Anyhow... I was ever so busy, but happy.
For the 20 guests I even used my antique French marble table from the foyer to sit five, the main dining table for ten and the round breakfast table for five as well. Therefore, I had the 20 guest sitting comfy.

Here I'm sharing the three tables, with dog motif, that hubby loves, plus different dishes for every table. I didn't use the transferware blue and white on my last post and you will see why.

With that said..

I did this setting for ten guests in the formal dinner table with the china I have for 16; 'Home Gallery.'

I didn't use the transferware because I wanted to place each table with different china patterns and colors. 

As centerpieces in all three table setting I placed a different color Cyclamen plant, which last very long on my kitchen window.

The motif for every table setting were doggies, as hubby just loves them.

In the main table setting I used the 'Viennese' engraved crystal goblets.

The breakfast table was set with the 'balsa wood' place mats and the Oriental china in red and white.
A couple of dogs here too.

The glasses for the breakfast table are Mexican hand blown.

Here a red cyclamen, more doggies and the Mandarin seal in the center of the china plates means; 'HAPPY HOME.'

The French antique marble table in the foyer became a luncheon table for five as well, lol..

Here too I placed doggies and a white cyclamen as centerpiece, with the ever lovely Onion pattern china.

The lovely stems are French and we inherited from my dear Mil.

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

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