FABBY: Tablescape with Meissen Centerpiece

Hi my darling friends! How are you all? Hope you are all doing well and enjoying summer weather and maybe heading to the beach on weekends too!

I made a tablescape on my alabaster, round breakfast table inspired on the beautiful  quilted place mats mother gifted me a couple of years ago, as she also received the six of them from a friend of hers for her 80th. birthday gift and they're a set of six with a round doily like..but she thought I'd use them more, I'm so lucky she thought that way, lol...of course I didn't argue...hehehehee..
I'm also using my beautiful Meissen bowl as a centerpiece, as everything has lots of pinks, including my antique dishes from my Mil.

 The tablescape for tonight was inspired on my quilted chintz, place mats..a gift from mother and my second inspiration was this beautiful Meissen bowl with the three girls playing hide and seek..they look like they're two in some pics, but here you can see they're three, two brown haired and one with fair hair.
 Vintage Meissen bowl,  I used as the of my very fav things around the house.
 I shot I took of the Meissen bowl, standing on a chair, you can see how pretty the inside of  it is. I love to serve chocolate bomboms on it for guests.
The clear pink water goblets are Polish and the clear wine glasses are hand blown in Mexico.

 I arranged on my antique Belgium buffet the teacups, teapot, water pitcher, salad plates and sugar bowl.

The napkin rings are brass and they're from India and I like them as a touch of gold. I used pink linen napkins, to pop up all the pinks in the place settings and tablescape.
 Another angle of our breakfast table and buffet. Some of you who follow me know we bought this beauty last March, I think...

Here's a peak of the formal dining room.
 The quilted chintz place mats I simply love. They're also reversible, and the other side is pretty in stripes too.
The reticulated chargers go very well with the place mats, as neither are stark white, but of a soft creamy color.
 The dishes are also a soft creamy color.
 The place setting.
 The teacups and in the background's tier, a cute vintage silver teapot that was my Mil's, along with some small and large vintage silver pieces.
Hope you like this simple, but feminine pink tablescape, the type I love the most.

Thank you all so much for your wonderful, kind and generous visits which leave a smile on my face EVERY TIME!!
