FABBY: Elegant but Simple Setting

Hello sweet friends!

     As many of you who follow me know, my mother comes every Wednesday and spends the day with Alejandro and me; that means she eats lunch and dinner at home; with a little 'happy twist' this week we had our lovely daughter Alexandra as a guest as well. She came to visit us from the capital, Quito, where she resides. She came last Monday for a week and we also celebrated her been featured in an international magazine as a skilled and talented children's photographer, (Alex is a professional photographer and takes potos of everything, including children).

My daughter and mother inspired me to make this elegant, (photos of Alex at the end of this post) but simple table setting with mother's Polish china she gifted me a few months ago from her NY stash, as mother also has many dishes so she can spare some to her 'only daughter,' lol..

When mom gave me this gorgeous set of dishes for eight some months ago, she said that she was gonna 'keep the teacups' for 'her tea parties,' (sniff,sniff) but now she had a change of heart by giving me the teacups, sugar bowl and creamer, as the teapot she said daddy broke long ago... which was a WISE decision on her part, been that she is a very 'intelligent' lady that I adore!!!

Here is the table setting for my very special dear mother and darling daughter Alexandra, who we are celebrating she's been featured in HOLA, the Spanish international magazine as a skilled and talented children's photographer here in Ecuador. Her photo is at the end of this post.

The Wawel-Polish china mother gifted me a few months ago and now complete with salad plates, teacups and saucers, along with sugar bowl and creamer.

I used the cobalt blue chargers from our past Factory to bring out the lil'blue flowers in the china, plus pretty glass stones cobalt blue napkin rings...I had forgotten I had!

I love the teacups with pedestals!

As a centerpiece I used this lovely porcelain Antique French urn, with white porcelain roses embossed, hand decorated angels and Rem's heads on each side.

Hubby's grandparents English buffet is newly tweaked with my two pink tea sets.

White lace place mats. My Mil's lovely French stems.

The flowers in the Antique Belgium buffet, as the vintage French urn has taken center stage this time.

My dear daughter Alexandra, who was featured in HOLA the Spanish-international magazine,  as a skilled and talented children's photographer, here in Ecuador. 'She's a professional photographer and takes photos of many things and adults as well.'

The entire photo which she sent us...taken by the magazine's own photographer.
Alejandro, mother and me are very proud of her, so I made a special lunch aaand dinner for the four of us in mom's china.

Thank you so much sweet friends for the wonderful comments, as you always make my day!

Thanking the gracious hostesses for having me at their great linky parties.
