A Fall Family Luncheon for Twelve

Hello sweet friends !

Can you believe I still had problems with my computer !!  

So, after it was fixed they forgot to install the "insertion points" so I couldn't even plug the mouse !  

Then I got so busy with a luncheon I hosted for twelve in-law siblings, including my brother married to hubby's sister.

So after I took the pictures of the Fall table for the luncheon, last Friday Oct. 12, I couldn't plug my camera to pass the pictures... it's been so hectic lately with this little machine ! 

I love seeing you and looking at your families and beautiful posts, specially the Fall tablescapes, my fav season. And this is the main reason that I continue blogging, otherwise, I'm telling you, this would be it for me ! 

So my wonderful family brought me gifts because of my upcoming birthday on Oct. 20th; although I didn't invite them for that reason, lol..

That said, here it is.

October is my birth month, so Fall is my fav season, therefore, I can't stop the Autumnal table decor.

My dough bowl as centerpiece.


I used for this setting my fav china made at our past Ceramic Factory.

Actually we were 12 at the table cause 2 more decided on coming.
 Since our formal dinner tabler is quite wide, I could set 2 more at the two ends of the table, (up on top before I fixed 2 more settings) therefore, it worked out perfect, nice and cozy, lol..

I also placed in each napkin my Fall leaves and sunflower napkin rings.

I arranged in two amber flower vases some Astromelia and a couple of sunflowers.

Thank you dear friends for your sweet and generous comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

Beautiful! I love orange and blue combined. Both mine and my husband's families are large, so there's no such thing as a small gathering, lol. Happy Birth month!

Hi Fabby! So glad you came over to Share Your Style #179 this week and shared your dining room table set for fall ~ and Happy Birthday, too!!! My mother-in-law's birthday is the same day! And their anniversary is four days later, plus ours was the 10th, so October is a wonderful month for us, too.

Again, love your table all set for fall,
Hugs and blessings,

Dearest Fabby,
That is a very warm and inviting fall family lunch table setting!
No doubt everyone enjoyed the feast.
Wishing you a happy belated Birthday dear friend! We were at a wedding on that day, with rehearsal dinner the previous evening and breakfast with friends on Sunday.
It is hectic here at home with the master bathroom being remodeled... lots of dust right now!
Also this afternoon the new airconditioning unit will get completely installed, they did not manage yesterday. Than after 9 days we hope to be able to feel cozy inside. Last week it was very hot and humid and now we have suddenly crisp nights.
