Sea Inspired Father's Day Table


Hello sweet friends !

Oh my, Father's Day is just around the corner, how time just flies !

This table is set for seven, so one upper place is with some serving pieces of my mother's Limoges beautiful china she gifted me several years ago. I paired it with my MIL's antique dinner plates cause I wanted to be sort of manly, not so very matched, I mean. 

Here I also placed as centerpiece the gorgeous French 'Art Nouveau' piece that was from my Father in law's home, so who knows how old it is ! The great part is that it matches perfectly with the aqua color of the Limoges dishes.

This tablescape is also my 'Summer' collaboration, taking advantage of all the seashells here.

Wishing all the FATHERS in your families a wonderful and blessed Sunday.

                                    " HAPPY FATHER'S DAY "


My "FATHER'S DAY 2018," Sea inspired Summer tablescape for this Sunday celebration.
I used my 'surfside' chargers for this setting, to enhance this mainly aqua Sea Summer table for 'Father's Day.'

 The sea inspiration came specially from the antique French piece Art Nuovo in 'aqua' with all the seashells, besides the fact that it matches perfectly the 'aqua' on the 'French-Limoges' dishes my mom gave me several years ago...and the placemats.

I paired it with my Mil's antique dinner plate so not to do a 'matchy-matchy' manly table spread.

This gorgeous antique centerpiece came from my FIL's family and it's French Art Nuovo or earlier. 

Hubby's mother left it to us because the initials are like ours, "C-A."

I spread natural seashells all around the table. The 'Spondylus' bowl is for the hot sauce.

The natural seashell is for the delish 'Coquille St. Jackes,' which is always a favorite of Mr. Living... and all of us, of course.

Serving pieces from the Limoges china mother gifted us.
A shell and wood serving spoon.
The Spanish wine is a "Mar de Frades" which is perfect as it means the "Sea of Frades."

The stems are 'Mexican hand blown' from many years ago.

Up front a shell shaped spoon for the entrance, the 'Coquille St Jacques.'

The friends that visited my last post, where I explained how I made these placemats and runner from material left over from the 'Toile' dining chairs and I lined them with this pretty brocade which fortunately has aqua in the pattern; perfect for the aqua "Limoge" china and antique French heirloom centerpiece ! 









The coffee station was set with my special WWII, 'German-Bavaria'  tea, or coffee set in this case.






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

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

LOVE,
FABBY

Good morning Fabby. I'm here from dear friend Gina's blog Art and Alfalfa and just loving all your beautiful tablescapes - I've enjoyed also looking back over your former posts.

Today's post displaying your Father's Day table is certainly extra special. I love the ocean theme, as I'm sure your husband will. The centerpiece is so amazing, and being a family heirloom makes it even more special.

Wishing you a lovely weekend - and happy Father's Day to your dear husband.

Me again Fabby - thanks for your very kind comment.
I'm addicted to display cloches too - and although now editing and downsizing around the cottage (in case we move to a condo!) - I will never dispose of them as vintage ones are hard to find, and quite expensive! I love changing their contents so you never know what you may see displayed!

I've become a Follower of your beautiful blog so will see you around!
Mary -
P.S. I was in South America in April of this year - Argentina and Chile - on an expedition cruise to Patagonia and the Chilean Fjords - all incredibly beautiful. Ecuador another time hopefully!

Here's a link to Torres del Paine national park - you may have traveled there too.

Such a lovely table, perfect for both summer evenings and Father's Day. I especially love the Limoges plates, so beautiful, made special when given to you as a gift. I am intrigued by your glassware -- they're shapely and look like they'd be comfortable in the hand for carrying around at summer parties.

This is truly beautiful Fabby! I love anything with a nautical theme and the shells are so perfect with the aqua plates and rattan chargers. The centerpiece bowl took my breath away, so gorgeous!

Another gorgeous table setting, Fabby! The nautical theme with your aqua dishes and ratta chargers is lovely and I’m so glad to see that beautiful Art Nuovo piece, again. It’s such a treasurer! I know your Mr. Living enjoyed his special day, as did all of your other guests. Happy week, dear Fabby!

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

I love this so much! The tone of blue is my favorite. That centerpiece dish is gorgeous- what a lovely family heirloom and you decorated it beautifully! Love the seashell accents. I hope your hubby had a wonderful Father’s Day!

Pam Richardson said...

Fabby, what a gorgeous table with the beautidul Limoges China. The centerpiece is stunning, what a treasure you have from your FIL’s family! I always enjoy visiting your tables that are executed with lovely details! Hugs and blessings!

Alycia Nichols said...

Oh, what a magnificent setting!!!!!!! The Limoges place settings and serving pieces are to DIE FOR!!!!!!!!!! I love the color! You aptly achieve a look that isn't over the top manly like "eatin'-raw-meat-with-a-stick" manly, but genteel. It's beautiful! The seashells are all so pretty. Along with the Limoges, they definitely make me think of the gentle waters of the sea. You must have had a great time pulling this table together!
