FABBY: Happy Mother's Day 2013

Hello my sweet friends!

First of all I want to emphasise that I am very blessed to have my dear 'mama' with me still. She is my good friend, I enjoy been with her very much, she is 83 at present.
Mother and I are only girls, therefore, we never had a sister to go visit. We both are very fortunate, though, to have wonderful friends and I, great sister in laws, as well!  

This table is in honor of my dearest mother, my friends and sister in laws and of course YOU, my lovely blog friends, as you are a great bunch of ladies and very much part of my life for two and some years and I consider myself very fortunate to have met you all, to know you, as you inspire me everyday with the wonderful things you all do and create to embellish more our nests and the encouragement I receive from you and my fav part of my days is when I visit your beautiful homes, through my "cybernetic box,"  lol...

Wishing all you ladies a wonderful and a very Happy Mother's Day 2013, along with your dear families.  GOD bless you.

My dearest mother and best friend, Yolanda 83 at present and doing quite well!

Here is my Mother's Day table scape for 2013.

I used here my 'English red transfer-ware' salad plates, as I don't have dinner plates in the red. 
I've decided to use my salad plates, serving pieces and teacups for my Mother's Day table setting and pair them with my Italian Tognana dinner plates, as these have Little roses in pink, which matches pretty nicely, along with brown chargers.

I decided to use this gorgeous German urn, hand decorated in pink roses; as a centerpiece. The friends that follow me might remember Alejandro gave me for Mom's Day two years ago.

Love the English-Staffordshire tea pot in this corner.

The German urn is flanked by two small crystal flower vases.
The fish knife is resting on a silver 'cat-knife' rest.

I love the red transfer-ware serving platter.

The brown charger with the 'Italian Tognana' dinner plate with pink roses.

The red transfer-ware salad plate.
A pink Polish Sherbet with a rose folded napkin inside it. I was lucky that these napkins also had a lace leaf in each, so I left them out for a perfect touch to the rose, and with a little thingies green ribbon.

Close up of one of the two crystal flower vases.

Here you can appreciate the hand decorated roses and lilacs in the urn. I also wanted to use these very pretty white lace place mats.

One of the two salad bowls I have in red transfer-ware. Wish I had dinner-in red too!

A shot from inside the kitchen.

The sherbets could be for serving 'ceviche' or 'shrimp cocktail...'or ice-cream, or fruit salad for dessert! Next to the knife, a 'shell shaped spoon' for such use.
The other red transfer-ware tea pot, at your right is, 'Wedgwood-Ports of London.' 

I bought a few years ago a set of four purple Polish sherbets and water glasses and...

four pink as well...as I love the two colors together.

Here you have it, my Mother's Day table scape for 2013.

Wishing you lovely ladies and all your dear mothers in your families, a wonderful and blessed Mother's Day this year!

Thank you so much for all your sweet and kind comments, my friends, as you always make my day!

I will also be joining some wonderful ladies, which host fabulous parties. Thank you very much for having me.

  33. Fabby, this is beautiful! Very, very pretty!!! I DO remember when Alejandro gave you the urn. You were SO excited!!! It's wonderful that you made it the centerpiece of this extra special table!

    Ramon would be on Cloud 9 if he was to get ceviche served in those neat dishes! He just recently tasted it, and he thinks it's one of the best things ever!

    You did a wonderful job with your napkins...rolling them so the lacy end looks like the leaf. Very sweet and creative!

    You and I both are very, very lucky to still have our Moms in our lives. Mine is a year older than yours. They enrich our lives in ways we can never fully explain. I wish you and your Mom a very Happy Mother's Day!!!!!

  34. Fabby, you've done it again! This is an amazing table full of beauty and love. I agree, it is very special that we still have our mothers in our lives. Happy Mother's Day to you and your sweet mom.

  49. Hi Fabby,
    Lovely tablescape! I was looking for a Mother's Day linky party. I remember one from last year. Have you heard of any?
    Have a Happy Mother's Day to you!

  50. Fabby, your table setting is lovely! Wishing you a Happy Mothers Day!!

  51. Happy Pink Saturday Mother's Day weekend. What a gorgeous tablescape. I am not a mom and wish I was sitting at this table and enjoying. Grace xoox

  52. Gorgeous table, Fabby. The dishes, the flowers, everything! Enjoy your Mother's Day!

  53. Fabby, what a gorgeous table setting. Your mother will be so pleased to see the love that shows through your beautiful table. I am also a transferware lover and have a set that began with only one plate my grandmother had in her cabinet. I also loved your colorful Cinco de Mayo table. I am now your newest follower and am looking forward to visiting your blog often!
    Blessings from Mississippi and Still Woods Farmhouse

  54. Happy Mother's Day to you too! Your table is beautiful! I love your dishes, urn and the lovely lacey placemats. I would be honored to sit at your table.
    Blessings My Friend,

  55. This table setting is just outstanding. What I love the most, though, are those whimsical cat knife rests. My mother had a set of crystal knife rests that were just beautiful, but seldom used. This will be my first Mother's Day without my mother, so a rather painful one for me. I wish you and your lovely mother a happy day.

  56. Happy Mother's Day! You did a beautiful job on your Mother's Day tabletop. It's lovely.

  57. Absolutely exquisite. Simply charming and welcoming, like the hostess.


  58. Wow! Those look amazing! I so want them! You did a great job! I also found you on How Sweet The Sound Linky party. I hope you can come visit me :D

    Teresa @ Freebies 4 My Family!

  59. So pretty! Love the transferware! Thank you for linking this up at Rustic Restorations Weekend!

  60. Your mother is a doll! I am so glad she is well. The table looks so pretty always fun to make a special table for a special day.

  61. The rosette napkins with the lace "leaf", the red transferware teapot, the shell spoon....so many lovely details in your beautiful Mother's Day tablescape. You and I were both thinking pink and white for Mother's Day. Hope that you have a blessed celebration. Cherry Kay

  62. Hi Fabby! Happy Mother's Day to you and Mommy Yolanda :D

    Your tablescape can beat even the posh dinner tables in hotels. Wow! I was and will forever be mesmerized by your tablescape. In case I'll be part of the dinner, I will surely feel like a princess in that wonderful table.

    Hope you are having a great Mother's Day. Thank you for always linking up :)

  63. Happy Mother's day to both you and your beautiful Mother. Enjoy this special day my friend! Sweet hugs!

  64. What a gorgeous Mum and your table treasures are endless. So pretty and I can't put words to them.

    Happy Mother's Day.

    Hugs from D´Box,
    /CC girl

  65. Exquisite table and lovely mother! :)
