Entertaining at Home again !


Hello sweet friends!

I haven't been around lately as this month has been a busy one for us. Our DD Alexandra got married the First of March in Miami in a very small ceremony at the apartment of our Sil's mother.

We also have been in the mood of entertaining lately at home.  Last Friday I did a luncheon with 17 very close friends from hubby's youth, their wives, plus two siblings and their spouses.

Again I had to make two sitting tables to fit the 17. Thank goodness our formal dinner table is very large and very wide, which helps a whole lot.
Our breakfast round table is an 'enabler' in this case and there you can sit six people very well.

I hope I don't bore you with my tablescapes, as I see the readers and hostesses are interested in other things much more so.




Here I'm sharing a picture of my dearest daughter Alexandra and Sergio at their civil wedding in Miami.
They had a very small reception right in the beautiful apartment of our Sil Sergio's mother with some friends and cousins. It was beautiful, we are so happy for this lovely couple.
They are the parents of our little Maxima. They also live in Madrid.


So lets get back to our luncheon at home.

The formal dining table held 11 guests and this is the setting I did using our antique china from my dear Mother in Law, on top of her gorgeous hand crocheted tablecloth.

The cyclamen flower pots are perfect to give it a little Spring touch.

The flatware is Reed & Barton, but I used a round spoon specially for the 'Cream of Mushroom,' a delicious French recipe I do.

Lately the cyclamen plants are growing so beautifully at my kitchen's window sill, so instead of making any arrangements I just placed them smack in the middle of the two tables, for a little Spring feel.


Our breakfast table was fixed for six guests. Again I used another of my cyclamen flower plant for the Spring look, plus my green china to celeb St. Pat's month.




My indoor plants are really radiant in this corner of the breakfast room and right in front of them, in the corner, I have a gathering of some more that are just as pretty.


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 fun parties.

LOVE,
FABBY
