Viva 5 de Mayo 2018 Tablescape

Hello sweet friends !

Well, tomorrow, is 5 de Mayo, the celebration of the Mexico's Victory against the French, known as the battle of Puebla.

Some places in the USA this is a happy occasion which they celebrate.

This is my creation, mostly with Ecuadorian things as the 'Macana-Ikat' table topper and some ceramic pieces from our past Ceramic-Co.

Ok, that's it.

                                      VIVA 5 DE MAYO !

The 'Ikat' tablecloth is in center stage, as it sort of magically makes it look like a Mexican table, although it's hand woven and color died in Ecuador.

To create this table setting for the 5 de Mayo I used my everyday china on top of a hand made daisy place mat.

The napkin ring in the form of a chicken and roosters were made back at our Ceramic Co.

The lovely gold paper rose I used as centerpiece for this table is made by my dear SIL.

The ceramic pieces were made at hubby's former Ceramic Co.

I love the pretty Tequila bottle is "Añejo PATRON" ( tequila made of 100% Agave ) and hubby says it's the best Tequila brand ever. I personally find Tequila to strong for my taste.

Thank you dear friends for your kind comments, you always make my day !

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

  3. OMGOODNESS! How VERY festive and fun this table is, Fabby! I just love it. You always outdo yourself no matter the occasion! I hope you have a blessed, wonderful weekend- xo Diana

  4. This is amazing. Do you know in Southern part of India, they have one traditional silk sari (among various) also call Ikkat Silk..:)(

  5. Love your pretty Mexican table, Fabby. You couldn’t have picked a better tablecloth even though it’s Ecuadorian. I love your pottery from your old pottery. Wish I could find a set I could own. I even searched on Ebay at one time, lol! Happy Cinco de Mayo, my friend!....Christine

  6. What a cheerful table!Beautiful tablecloth!

  7. Dearest Fabby,
    You at least did set a fabulous table for Cinco de Mayo!
    That is already past too... time is going so fast and it is good.
    I still have till June 12 to go on 1 crutch in order to slowly let my 2 pelvic bones heal. They are broken but a closed fracture!
    That's the result of getting killer cramps in the lower leg in bed early morning; jumping out and falling on your hip.
    Could have been worse and Tuesday it is already 6 weeks so I'm making progress. Meanwhile I started doing the mega task of scanning all our old letters/cards. I've had them all bagged up per year but this time I wanted to do it and than trash them after Pieter can enjoy reading once more his dear Mother's and his two brothers' letters and more.
    Today I've tackled 25% of all the years I need to do so finally I visit some blogs and than back to work!

  8. Fabby, your table is indeed colorful and so pretty. Love the settings and that centerpiece. The tequila bottle is lovely. I can't drink straight tequila anymore. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful table at Dishing It & Digging It.

  9. Absolutely composed written content, Really enjoyed examining.

  10. Your table just calls for celebration, Fabby. I love it! So much exuberance and colour. I think that guests just wouldn't be able to help but have a wonderful time around this table.

  11. Lots of stunning color. I love it Fabby, you did an awesome job on the table!


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