FABBY: Red, White and Blue Explotion!

For "Shadow Shot Sunday" Red, White and Blue floating stars. Happy 4th. of July 2012!!
Hi my darlings!  

  I dedicate this tablescape to honor our great country the USA on her birthday!

I used my onion blue and white dishes, along with red and white plates and my flags, to create an explotion of the Reds, Whites and Blues! Hope you like it.

There are a lot of American repats here in Ecuador, specially in Cuenca, the city where we reside and so there's lots going on in the following days and evenings from now on.., like restaurats that care for American food to honor the 4th. and so on.. We usually go out for dinner with our friend Stephanie from NJ and her hubby Julio, Alejandro's friend and sometimes others American friends join the group too, so we do celebrate and have fun as well. 

Thank you for coming for a peek at my patriotic tablescape for the 4th. of July 2012. Your visits always make my heart sing.

 The table is set for six. I used my old flag as the only linen for this tablescape...BUT, of course, it's ONLY FOR PRETEND!! I would NEVER use the American flag as tabletopper for real, though.
 My red chargers, my blue and white onion dishes, white small plates and blue sherbets.
 The floating star candles. The pretty flag napkins are paper in this case.

 Another place set with red plates underneath the blue sherbet.

 My USA candles I bought last year and I placed them in this piece of dark wood with a little red heart as decoration.
 My daughter Sofia brought from Miami this all american outfit for Victoria to wear on her birthday this weekend. My two daughters are American citizens and soon my granddaughters will be as well.
 Don't you just love Victoria in the great flag blouse? She has a star necklease too.

  I also did a coffee station in my antique, made in the USA nesting tables that were my Mil's with another flag I have, plus a beautiful bow I keep on the inside of my bedroom door all year round.

 I love this flag bow with tassels I have so long.

 At the left hand side there's a pretty scalloped pedestal with blue glass my mother gave me several years ago as a C'mas gift.
 I love the USA candles!
Ther floating stars..
Hutschenreuther blue and white, cute butter dishes.
The blue glass sherbets were a $1,12 a couple of years ago...I have 8 for ice cream, or fruit salad with yougur, or whatever,..even "shrimp ceviche"!
 At the right hand is an antique English crystal pitcher with blue color crystal dimonds.
Some fresh roses for the centerpiece with the flags.
                                         HAPPY BIRTHDAY USA AND GOD BLESS YOU!!!

Thank you to all the lovely and gracious hostesses for making me feel so welcomed to your wonderful and fun parties.

  63. Greetings my beautiful friend.
    What a wonderful American tablescape in honor of the 4th of July. You always make the best tablescapes.
    Your daughter Sofia is a gorgeous girl. The blouse for Victoria is adorable.I love the bow that you display on your inside bedroom door year round.

    Everything is set for the perfect celebration. I hope you enjoy a wonderful time with your family and friends.
    Happy 4th of July and thank you for stopping by and your greeting.
    Love to you always and blessings too,

  64. Your tablescape certainly has me in the mood to celebrate now! It is so very hot and dry here right now that our usual day of being outdoors all day will probably not happen tomorrow. I think this will be the first 4th of July that we may spend inside watching movies instead of outside cooking on the grill and visiting on the patio! I love your coffee station the pretty!

  65. Beautiful tablescape to celebrate Independence Day! The blues go so well with the reds making it a real holiday table. Love your little tea table decorated and set for tea. Have a wonderful holiday.

  66. Wow, did a more American table than most Americans!!! This is really terrific! I find it interesting that there are a lot of ex-pats in Ecuador. Hmmmmm...sounds like that's something to look into for retirement! :-) I love your U.S.A. candles and the star floating candles. Very cute! Your table setting is really nice with all the fabulous red, white & blue. It's festive with a touch of formality! Little Miss Victoria looks quite fetching in her red, white & blue, too! I hope you and your friends all have a wonderful time tomorrow. Take care, and enjoy!!!!!!!!

  67. Fabby,
    So patriotic and very pretty. Your steamed salmon looks so good.
    Happy 4th!

  68. Dear Fabby, You put alot of spirit into your Fourth of July tablescape. I didn't know your USA connection until now. Tremendous that American citizens get together there to celebrate like we do here. Any chance you will move to Miami? Loved the blue stemware, red chargers and pedestal dish. Also wanted to mention that your Father's Day table was fabulous also.

  69. How wonderfully set your table is celebrating the birth of our wonderful nation. It warms my heart to know that you still celebrate the 4th, even in Equador...Gorgeous table Fabby and Victoria is a very beautiful young lady...Love her outfit and you can see that she loves it too!!!....Have a wonderful day Fabby!
