FABBY: Father's Day Table with Doggies

We came back two days ago from staying with our granddaughters for almost a month, as our Sil had to have an intervention in his spine and, of course, along with daughter Sofia had to make the trip to the Miami Spine Center. Thank God, our Lord,  and the many prayers from the family, friends and all of you dearest blog friends.. for which I'm forever grateful. His operation was a total success and the entire family is elated!!
I'm sorry too that I have taken so long in answering your wonderful, kind and generous comments and good wishes..but now that I'm back home, I will make it up!!

                                                  HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

 Spanish tablecloth.
 Vintage dogs from my Doggies collection. Italian Bormiolli Rocco stemware.
 More doggies. The candle sticks are Bohemian crystal. At your left, (you can hardly see), but there is Alejandro's sterling napkin ring, with his initials monogrammed as my in laws had one for each of them, the seven kids and the two of them. We have his parents and of course, hubby's.
 These two dogs are German..I think it says Godoel-W. Germany. I have porcelain, bronze, new and vintage dog collection, maybe around 23, so far.
 Turkish, hand painted in gold crystal chargers.
 The place setting with the soup bowl and dinner plate. The small, sterling cup and saucer is a baby set from Alejandro when he was small and it's monogrammed with his initials too.
 The salad plate with the teacup and saucer with gold edging and black stitches.The black pieces have gold stitching like, can make it up clearly in the photos, but it shadows a little.
 I love to use this glass lacy-susan for teas with sweets, or for many other uses, like now with the doggies and silver things that were hubby's. We keep it in this breakfast table with the everyday things, along with medicine and

 Yellow roses for sweet and loving Alejandro, the father of my two precious and beautiful daughters.

 My Mil's English buffet in the back drop.
 Here is the antique Belgium buffet in the background.
A shot from the foyer...the tablescape in the background on our breakfast table.
 The buffet all set with champagne and Italian Bormiolli Rocco flutes to cheer with the fathers.
I love this organza table topper, with Richelieu, machine made cut work and  scalloped edges.
Our daughter Sofia cannot make the trip with her husband and our daughter Alexandra is going to Europe on Monday.. so we won't have children for Father's Day 2012...therefore, I made a table for four, a couple of good friends, Alejandro and me. Hope you like it.
My dearest father, whom I was so close to and the apple of his eyes. I lost him by a heart attack to the myocardium in 1996. I miss you every day daddy!
Have a happy Father's Day my friends, along with your families, hubbies and fathers, if you are so lucky to still have them. I lost daddy in 1996 and I still miss him so much, there's always so much I want to tell hm and share with him..oh well, that's life.

Thanking you all so much in advance wonderful friends for all your generous comments when you visit my house...they always make my day!!
