FABBY: My Favorite Christmas Table!

Hello sweet friends!

    I say that my fav table for C'mas is certainly a 'traditional' one, such as this one I'm sharing today for the wonderful Christmas Season 2013.

I did stop dreaming of a White C'mas caz it's no use, it's really NOT gonna snow here and it's almost 80, nice and dry...so now I'm with all the wonderful colors of the season, such as red, green, white.

Hope you like it, as your lovely comments are so very appreciated, because you guys always make my day!

So here you have it; at the end of the day I'm simply traditional when it comes to Christmas!

I DIYed this tablecloth and hand embroidered it when I was a young mom, back 28 years ago, when Alejandro was away on a business trip to Europe, buying machinery for his Ceramic Factory and I missed him so much!

Some Candy-canes in the my Mil's antique compotes.

When I was a young mom to my two little girls, I did lots of things myself, like sewing, embroidering, painting stuff, needle point, etc.

I saw this small wreath-bling hanging in the back of the dining chairs in a Spanish magazine and I copy catted it.

Mother gave me this cute nutcracker several years ago for a birthday in October.

Mother than gifted me this tall nutcracker for the C'mas following my birthday the same year.

The china is Lynn's Fine China and I have 16 place settings and serving pieces, plus soup plates, not shown in the tablescape. A gift from my sweet hubby almost 20 years ago and I love it every time I take it out by November every year. 

The tablecloth is of a fine linen, all cotton, perfect for embroidering.

I have these poinsettias and leaves all around the cloth, some you cannot see as the centerpiece is covering most of it.

You will find this embroidery of dry greens and sequences all over the cloth too.

I combined it with green too...see, I'm soo traditional!

I like these chargers with the cane in the center of them...too bad no one can see it once you place the dinner plate on top, lol!

The hand etched compotes stems are antiques, they used to be my Mil's mother. The red wine stems are Italian.

I had this tea set made at our former Ceramic Factory. I copied the pattern from a holiday cloth I found.

I like a lot of Red for Christmas

I also sewed and embroidered a runner to match the tablecloth for the buffet.

Thank you sweet friends for visiting me, you always make my day!

Thanking the wonderful hostesses for having me at their great parties each week.
