A Pink Table for Holy Week-Easter 2019


Hello sweet friends !

I created a pink tablescape for this 'Holy Week' leading to 'Easter Resurrection Sunday,' using mostly pink. Therefore, I started as my focal point, my pink French country style chargers. 
I didn't use a tablecloth for a change, as the pink looked great against the wooden dinner table.

On top my dear MIL's heirloom antique pink-rose china, sherbits in pink and purple, with real bird nests inside with chocolate eggs and candy eggs... along with water glasses to match and German purple wine glasses with purple stems.

The centerpiece flanked by pitchers I arranged my flowers in... was created with a clotch where I raised a bigger bird's nest with quail  little eggs and candy colored eggs, plus a wooden cross painted in gold made, while in grade school by my then little daughter Sofia... my little treasure cross !

Wishing you and yours a wonderful and very blessed Easter Sunday 2019.



My French country pink chargers start the place setting, with our antique heirloom china from dear MIL. 
I used to pair the rose china a reticulated dinner plate from my complete cutwork style china.




Bird nests inside the pink and purple sherbets

The wine glasses are German and their stems are purple too.



The dinner plate comes from my 'reticulated' china.


This is such a pretty pink 'plastic' charger, inexpensive and with the vintage style look, or French country, that gives it such charm. 

It just says made in China, lol..


Since I already had a charger I used the dinner plate from my gorgeous cutout complete china for 12, which also has chargers of it's own. 

I paired the 'reticulated' plates with my MIL's antique pink-rose china salad plates and entree, or dessert little bowls.

Unfortunately it doesn't say anything on the cutout china except the store's name where hubby bought it here in Ecuador, some 10 years ago, for a Mom's gift for me.

The gold runner and doilies to match are 'Swiss' and bought them at least 25 years ago, or more. I love the gold and the pink roses in the print as well to go with the pink china and chargers.


                                                                  The centerpiece is a gold clutch with a bigger bird's nest filled with quail eggs and candy as well, to celebrate 'Easter or Resurrection Sunday..." My 'mischievous' bunnies are goldish too and match well with the runner.  






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

Thanking all the lovely hostesses for their great parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

FABBY: March Rosary Prayers


Hello sweet friends !

Rosary prayers was here again, last Wednesday of every month. 

I so love this gathering with good friends, and I especially like the fact it's in my house and so I love preparing the flowers and candle for the image of the 'Virgin Mary' in the living room where we do our prayers.

We pray for all the sick and needy.  As always, you are welcome for us to pray for you and your family, no matter what the reason and no matter your religion; God always listens to our pleads.

Wishing you many blessings this Easter Season.


This is a lovely "Polish Wawel" china my mom gave me several years ago, it's from 'way back' from my childhood in Astoria, NY. So it was for eight place settings originally, but now there's only six places left, but it's ok, as I have set it in the round breakfast table.

Anyhow, the teacups, saucers, cake plates, sugar bowl and creamer are in perfect condition for eight places.

Here is my March Rosary tea table setting with them. 


As I have mention it before; our tea time is 'very humble' as the idea isn't  'social,' therefore just tea or coffee, warm bread, cheese and usually homemade marmalade, is served.

I do love to create a pretty setting nonetheless.

What you see in the white bowl is "Dulce de Leche" which is yummy inside any bread, but specially in the center of warm 'Croissants.'

I love the shape of the teacups, the dainty pattern in light blue and silver edges.

As chargers I used some bigger Transferware plates in blue and white.

The centerpiece flowers were arranged on a Chinese pot, flanked by two small 'French country kids' busts I fell for them, some years ago at an antique shop and two candle holders made back at our Ceramic Co.

In the back of the place setting is the bread basket with a "hand embroidered" cover in blue flowers, which also keeps the bread warm from the oven.





Don't you love the shapes of the lovely "Polish Wawel" china? I guess the teapot broke someday way back, I have to ask my mom about it.


Thank you for your sweet comments dear friend, you always make my day !

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

LOVE,
FABBY

FABBY: Tulips and Birds for an Easter Table


Hello sweet friends !

I hope all is well with you and I hope your Spring is in full bloom at your neck of the woods !

I created this "Spring and Easter" table to share with you all, besides it takes my mind away from all my many "duties" taking care of my ill mother, who some of you know had a stroke a month and a half ago.

Tablescaping is very entertaining for me, even if I will not have my dear mama at my Easter table this year.

Easter is such a pretty season and it has a happy and cheerful tone, specially for the friends that have the 'Four Seasons' and are leaving a cold Winter behind.

With that said, here is my setting.



I used for my Easter 2019 table setting my bird plates on top of green dinner plates and my new Spring tablecloth I found at a pretty home store.
I loved all the flowers and birds on the print of this lovely table topper.



The green napkin rings were made back at our former Ceramic Co. and they have a butterfly on top of each too.




                                            Here you can see some birds scattered around the tablecloth, along with ferns and flowers, which is the main reason I spotted it and thus, bought it !

I love this cheerful and happy tablecloth, I'm so glad I bought it without thinking twice, lol..



Faux tulips for the centerpiece.




I wish you a wonderful Easter-Spring season 2019.

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

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

LOVE,
FABBY
