FABBY: Belated Three Kings Day-Epiphany

This is a lacy-organza table topper, made in Spain. I usually place another color tablecloth underneath it, so it looks pretty under the lace. Today I just used it as is, in white.
I used my blue and white Onion pattern dishes in honor of The Three Kings. The tea set, the platter and the Kings are standing on my glass lacy-susan.
This is a lace and organza tablecloth made in Spain...which I'm also honoring the Spaniards, as January 6th., Kings Day is when the children in that country receive their presents from the Kings and not from Santa, lol.. Some countries in Latin America do too, like Cuba and in Ecuador that lasted until my mom's generation, I don't know when it started been C'mas Day. I understand the Philippines follow the Three Kings Day Epiphany too.
The sherbet is for a maracuya-sherbet, or passion fruit in English. Than we proceed to have tea with the honey goodies, with some cheese and marmalade.
My dear  "Sis in law" brought me this adorable sterling and porcelain sugar spoon from France for my birthday last Oct.; remembering that I own blue and white dishes.

I placed in the long shaped Hutschenreuther platter the Swiss honey bread and cookies, from my dear Mil, which she learned to make from her aunt who married a Swiss gentleman. I'm so happy I have the recipe too. The teapot is Bareuther-Indischblau, Bavaria-Germany. I bought it in another store, as the dishes didn't come with a teapot, since it had broke coming from Germany and they gave me a better deal; but I did receive the dishes for our Anniversary from hubby, two years ago.. so I really didn't "dish" out my own money as I usually do for china, cause Alejandro sometimes thinks I have enough and I do too, but I can't help it!
These Three Kings and Baby Jesus, came from my Italian Nativity set.

I hope so far your new year is coming along dandy. I am very excited for this year 2013, which has just started; as our daughter Alexandra will be getting married to a wonderful man, which has the entire family very happy with her choice, which makes the upcoming event perfect!

Again, thank you with all my heart for all your support in the last year, as you make my blogging days so exciting! I love to visit you and inspire myself with all your talents..let these be, cooking, decorating, tablescaping, photography and so many wonderful family events, since we have so much in common with our love for family and home..what else can be better than that in this life and we are all so blessed to have a passion for the subject.

Thank you all lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at your great parties too.
