FABBY: A Gold Table for New Year's Eve 2014

Hello sweet friends!

               I decided to create my New Years Eve 2014 tablescape as my last post because we will be busy tomorrow getting ready for the New Year's Eve party at our friends house.

 Therefore, here is my gold table, as I adore the antique, Italian silk brocade tablecloth my dear Mil left us and it's so elegant and with so much gold in the embroidery of the brocade. I also used my Italian Tognana china which is one of my fav dishes from my early marriage with the glass, gold Turkish chargers and I decided to use two chargers with the reticulated ones as well, to create more volume to the place setting.

I will also explain with more detail as go along after each photo.

                                                          HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014!

The tablecloth is an antique Italian silk brocade, a treasure that was my dear Mil's.

Here I used two chargers...the glass gold Turkish ones, paired with the reticulated ones.
The china is also Italian-Tognana and I have it for many years and is one of my very fav dishes I own.

The bronze candle holders are also antique from my Mil as well.
The centerpiece is a crystal German pedestal.

I love the silk gold brocade on the tablecloth with some blue roses which pick up the blue small flowers in the china.


Venetian crystal  etched stemware. Water, wine and champagne flute glasses.

Here the Turkish glass chargers, reticulated chargers, Italian Tognana dinner plate and soup bowl.

This lovely silk brocade antique Italian tablecloth has many figures in the pattern, from flowers to butterflies.

I wish you and your dear ones a happy, healthy and blessed year coming and I am looking forward to visiting you to continue this blogging community we are so blessed to belong to...which I love so much, specially because of you, wonderful and sweet friends.

Thank you so much for the comments I received all thru 2013, they always made my day...and I mean it!

Thanking the wonderful, kind and generous hostesses for having me at their great parties.
Looking forward to joining in the new year 2014, as well.

    Greetings from D`Box,
    /CC & family

  47. We usually don't make a special tablescape for New Year's. In facti it's more a buffet like table, each grab what they want and eat where they want.
    This year we were on the verge of staying home alone - just me and hubby - and ended with over 20 teens and young adults. Dear Son and Daughter New Year's Plans went wrong and they - and their endless number of friends - ended up in our place ahahahah
    It was fun. We usually don't have so many people at home but it was fun and soon me and hubby were feeling teens too ahahahah
    Happy New Year. As Bringht and Happy as this lovely setting.

  48. It all looks golden stuff :) I hope you had a great Christmas holiday dear.

    Check out my new post...Cute Swedish curtain inspiration :)

    Have a fab day

    LOVE Maria at inredningsvis - Swedish decor, food, and fashion

  49. Fabby, Your New Year's table setting is just stunning.
    I love it!! I'll be featuring you this week at Simple & Sweet Fridays. Thanks so much for sharing!
    Happy New Year!!

  50. WOW! How did I miss this until now? This table is breathtaking! I love it! It is elegant, yet fun. Absolute perfection!


I love to receive your sweet and generous messages. You always make my day !
