An Autumn Luncheon for Eight


Hello sweet friends !

So I took some pics for my last post as we are going next week to Miami for the birth of our granddaughter Leonela. She will be our Alexandra's second baby girl. Maxima the eldest is almost four years old.

This table setting is created for eight guests and I started by featuring the pumpkin soup we love and the second course will be a pot roast with some other goodies.

I used my blue and white transferware I haven't in a while on top of dear MIL's beautiful hand-crochet tablecloth that needed to be showed off too, as I haven't set a table in quite some time and I love it.

I will try to post our Thanksgiving Day from Miami.

Big hugs !


I decided to go with my blue and white transferware plates for this Autumn luncheon for eight.

I placed a couple of cute "hedgehogs" here on this setting as they seem to be on style lately as pets and my 12 year old grand Cayetana has a real one and it's so adorable and tiny.
She sleeps all day long hiding underneath her blankets and starts walking at night, lol..

The luncheon menu starts with pumpkin cream-soup a favorite of all.

I also set this Autumn Luncheon table on top of dear MIL's gorgeous crochet tablecloth I was lucky to inherit from her.

 I decided to place two chargers in each place, the pink which is a larger one, along with the cobalt blue charger, blue transferware dinner plate and white French, soup bowl.

The goblets I used for this blue table are: Czech pink and purple wine glasses, paired with pink and purple water glasses. You can see them here.

One of the pair of "hedgehogs" I placed on this 'Autumn luncheon' setting.

The second "hedgehog" is hiding underneath some dry Fall Leaves in the blue antique bowl from hubby's grandmother.




I added my October 'Royal Albert teacup' I also inherited from my Mother in Law who's birthday was Oct. 21 and mine is Oct. 20... this sunday. 



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

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

LOVE,
FABBY

" A Little Spooky table "


Hello sweet friends !

I created a "Halloween" table today because I really felt like having a little fun. So I proceded to take out the 'Halloween' carton with the stash and see what was in it and I came out with a not to spooky table, I've done worse, hahaha... now we can even eat out of it, specially the "Eye Soup" lol..

With that said, I hope you enjoy it, as much as I had making it.

Happy Halloween 2019 !


The 'Eye Soup' came out in stripes in the photo, lol..



The 'Eye-Soup' is my grandgirl Victoria's recipe hehehe

The centerpiece is a little spooky, but that's about all..wink





One side-buffet



Some touches of 'Halloween' in the other side-buffet.

The "Eye Soup" is the recipe of my grandgirl Victoria hihihi






                                         Very Spooky and dark... I wouldn't sit here in 
                                     the darkness would you ?

Thank you for dropping by dear friends, you always make my day !

Thank you lovely hostesses for having me at your great parties.

Thanksgiving Table Spread for 2019


Hello sweet friends !

  I specifically created this "Thanksgiving Table Spread" for my blog and if I unite the family some time before we leave for Miami the 25th. of this month of Oct. 

Our dear daughter Alexandra will be giving birth to her second baby girl in Miami as her oldest Maxima.  The baby is due the very first days of November. Alexandra is American and thus the reason, although she resides in Madrid with her husband, Maxima and now baby Leonela.

We'll stay in Miami for a month, so I will be cooking Thanksgiving there, just like you all.

With that said, here is my table setting with the 'botanical' pattern Fall china, I'm using it everyday for the Autumn season and was so lucky to find them last year at a cute little store.

Happy October 2019.




I loved this botanical pattern china I bought last year quite by accident... while parking my car in the street I glanced at the small store's window and puff ! There it was this lovely plates, soup bowls and coffee mugs, (not showing here).



Several years ago when I replaced my yellow curtains with 'Hunter Douglas' shades instead, I repurposed the drapes into this pretty yellow moare tablecloth.

Notice something?  
(shshsh... no water glasses, sesh)

The dinner plate and the colors and pattern is so pretty, I love it !





Ups !  There's a little squirrel inside the lantern !



The other day I was watching a cake recipe on a Youtube video and saw how the baker had arranged her pretty 'Nordic-Ware' bundt pans and other molds right into her pretty plate rack.

So you can imagine me, been such a 'copycat' that I am, I immediately styled my rack too, with some of my fav bundt pans and ceramic ones and it is also at arms reach... never thought about it before !

Ok, don't laugh, but I forgot to place the water glass in each place, lol..
here they are !


Thank you so much for your kind comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the gracious hostesses for their great parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

Fall at the Dining Room


Hello sweet friends !

I gave myself a little time yesterday to create some small Fall vignettes in our breakfast area and formal dining table. 

I also fixed a small Autumn table for tea this afternoon with my Fall dishes from last year. I always bring out to my plate rack in the kitchen my seasonal china to use while the season is going on, till the next and now that would be Christmas, my goodness is coming fast !

Hope you are all enjoying it and starting to feel Autumn at your neck of the woods,it is such a beautiful season with all it's colors in the USA.

I will be there at the end of Oct. for the birth of our DD Alex's second baby girl. We will spend Thanksgiving there and I will cook, lol..

Happy Autumn to you all !



With my faux, DIY MaCkenzie-Childs pumpkins side table vignette.





I keep here in the kitchen's skinny rack my seasonal china to use everyday. The next china that will be here, it'll be the Christmas one... my goodness, very soon !

My silver fowl cover flanked by two mercury glass pumpkins.



Tea table with fall dishes for a Saturday afternoon.











The formal dining table has a little touch of Fall as well.

I loved this amber depression kind of glass fruit bowl, just perfect for Fall.
The gourds are natural, dried and sprayed painted by me.




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

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

LOVE,
FABBY
