He has Risen - Easter Setting

Hello sweet friends!

This is Holy Week and I set up a table for Rosary and for Easter Sunday coming up.

Here is what we used to do Easter Sunday when we were kids, my two brothers and I:
 We always went to the city, (Manhattan) for Mass at ST. PATRICK'S CATHEDRAL, to watch the Easter parade, to see the Rockets Spring Show and have a late lunch, with our parents. For us kids it was always a treat when dad took us to 'the city' as New Yorkers call it. Dad drove us there and enjoyed it too. Such great memories I treasure dearly.

As many of you know I lived in Astoria-Queens.

Besides the fact that the custom in NY was that we had to wear a brand new outfit for Easter Sunday and my mom and me wore hats. She looked like a blond beautiful Jacqueline Kennedy in her pillbox style hat and her channel type suit, the style of the moment.

The custom here in Ecuador is, to have a special 'hardy harvest soup,' with grains and Cod stew, which you also add to the soup in a small portion.  Really delish, although I'm not crazy about grains, but it is quite yummy. 

There are small hand pies to go along with it, plantain chips, hard boil eggs; all these things you can add to the soup if you wish and these would be the only meal.
Dessert is usually 'Rice Pudding.'

Now, here is my table setting for this Easter Sunday and for the Rosary there after, the following Wednesday.



I know you're probably thinking... those same teacups again!!
Well, you see, I only had four of them, it so happened I could never use them much cause I have more then that for the rosary and for other teas with friends.
My question for you is:  I could never order four more teacups and dessert plates because these dishes come with the store's name in the back, therefore I have no reference for them. But just now they brought in more in the store, so I did buy four more pieces, but I still want to know...So if anyone knows, or has, please let me know the brand.     Thank you in advance !


The centerpiece inside my clotch I created it religious for an Easter luncheon.

I mixed and matched with yellow and green dinner plates, for a Spring pastel look, along with pink napkins, where I placed in each a small bird's nest with tiny quarrel eggs, lol..

The water glasses are pink and lilac. The one stems come in various colors even black.

I used my old big Canon camera and the pics came out sort of darkish, it seems.
I lent my daughter Sofia my new small Canon camera for her trip to Europe with her family. 

Bird nests on top of each napkin.

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

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

  12. Hello Fabby- your table is so pretty. Love the cloche with the cross and lambs. The china is very pretty. I have a pattern that reminds me of it but it's not the same. Wishing you a Happy Easter!

  13. Hi Fabby, Happy Easter to you and yours! You tell such a beautiful story. Easter is always a favorite of mine. I was raised Catholic and have many fond memories of the Easter season and its celebration SONday! My mother would take my sister and I to the House of Paris and purchase a new hat for each one of us. She would also buy us outfits at Crews Beggs Department store where her cousin Rose worked in the girls dept. She always kindly gave us her employee discount and my sister and I were always fashionable.
    Your table is set lovingly and so beautiful. You have such an artistic hand for this. I am grateful Jesus lives still and loves us and wants us all to join Him in eternity one day.
    Thanks for the memories and the beautiful post. I hope you will visit soon. HUGS Anne

  14. Happy Easter dear Fabby! Aren't the different customs so interesting? I remember wearing a new dress, hat, and gloves on Easter Sunday to go to church. You always set a lovely table, Fabby. So nice to have you stop by for a visit. Have a beautiful weekend, my friend.


  15. Hello Fabby. A very blessed Easter to you. I've only been to the Cathedral once and it was on Saint Patrick's Day many years ago. Breath taking. You have set a lovely table. Absolutely beautiful. I could visualize the hats! Wish more woman wore hats these days. That would be such fun.
