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.
