A very Thankful Table for Six

 Hello sweet friends !

My sweet husband gifted me for my birthday last Oct. 20th, with this beautiful Portuguese china. He said he wanted me to think about him whenever I use it... he's so sweet.  

I saved it for this year's Thanksgiving, as we contracted COVID-19 last June and we are fine now, hubby and me. It took Alejandro two weeks longer than me, but he too was finally tested negative.

Our daughter Alexandra and her husband Sergio are well now too, as they were positive also. 

So there is so much to be thankful for, since our convalescence was simply excellent, along with our children, Alex and Sergio. 

I am setting a table for six for Thanksgiving this year, my two daughters and their husbands and the two of us. 

With that said, here is my thankful setting. 

Wishing all of you lots of health, happiness, and blessings this Thanksgiving 2020. 

God bless the USA at this trying times.

I bought this gorgeous Turkey Tureen and laddle from 'Pottery Barn' last November in Miami 2019. 
Couldn't wait to showcase it for this Thanksgiving on my table, although last year I did place it on Alexandra's Thanksgiving table.

This is my birthday gift and hubby Alejandro surprised me greatly !

Isn't it so pretty ? Hubby dear is got great taste to pick this golden magnolia floral; "SPAL Porcelanas, Portugal."

At this corner I placed my tea set for coffee or tea after dinner. This set has also six teacups and saucers and it's an antique from WWII, American Zone, Bavaria and... I love how it goes with my new china. 

So I showcased Mr. Turkey tureen, from 'Pottery Barn' last year, while I was in Miami. I love my big turkey tureen.

I will serve my delicious Pumpkin Soup we all love.

This gorgeous china came with a soup bowl, here... and a 'soup plate,' the wider kind. Very unusual, never had a china with two different bowls for soup!

My daughter Sofia got me the cute wooden, gold pumpkin napkin rings for my birthday

Salad plate.

I also baked a pumpkin pie that freezes perfectly. Some love it with a dollop of cream on top, some don't to save some calories, like me.

Thank you for your kind comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the gracious hostesses for their inspiring parties.

  12. Oh this looks so beautiful. Very elegant and the dishes are so pretty. The color combination soothing and i am sure you are going to have a memorable 2020 Thanks giving Day with family. Lots of love:)

  13. What gorgeous china! And what a nice husband:) I have a similar turkey tureen and I love it. What a gorgeous table! So glad you are well! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. xo Kathleen

  14. Beautiful and so inviting. Fabulous job.

  15. Fabby, me alegro de que toda la familia estéis ya totalmente recuperados, esperemos que pronto lleguen las vacunas y podamos olvidarnos de estos tiempos difíciles. No dejas de sorprendernos con tus deliciosas presentaciones has puesto una mes ideal, tu pavo es precioso y que delicado tu marido haciéndote este bonito regalo, también me gustan los servilleteros que te obsequió tu hija, bueno en realidad me gusta todo . Yo tengo una vajilla que también tiene dos platos para sopa, bueno un plato hondo y otro más bien en forma de bol con su platillo correspondiente. Imagino lo delicioso que debía estar tu pastel de calabaza. Un beso grande

  16. Such a beautiful table, Fabby! I love your turkey tureen and all the pretty vintage tableware... I've never heard of two types of soup bowls either. Maybe the one is more of a vegetable or salad bowl (the smaller?) or a cereal bowl (what I always use them for!).

    Anyway, Happy almost Thanksgiving to you and your familia! Happy to feature your post at Share Your Style #281 this evening. <3

    Many hugs,
    Barb :)
