Last Easter Sunday table for a Family Luncheon

 Hello sweet ladies !

I'm late cause I changed my mind about my Easter table, as you know I love creating new tables, it makes me so happy and giddy cause of my passion for dishes, china, glasses, linens, flatware, flowers, etc. You know ! 

We were so lucky to have had our daughter and her family visiting us for the whole week before Easter Sunday.

So here is the table setting before it was a mess with me serving and everything else, you know what I mean.

Along with my creamware, reticulated china, I used my 'Easter-Egg salad plates,' that I love.

Hope you all had a great 'Easter Sunday of Resurrection,' as we did.

With that said.



             This was a real tablescape for Easter. We had our daughter Sofia and her family. We enjoyed it so much and celebrated "Resurrection Sunday" with much love.


         Whenever I use this Easter Egg salad plates people ask me about them, as much as the 'Creamware reticulated china.' 


                     The salad plates are:  'Gold Buffet - Royal Gallery.' Made in Sri Lanka. They come in a box of four. I have two boxes.




 














Thank you so much dear friends for your kind comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for their great parties.

LOVE,

FABBY

I will join this parties:

TABLE FOR SIX. HAPPY EASTER 2021

 Hello sweet friends !

I do hope you are all off to a good start of Holy Week, leading to Easter Sunday.

I created an Easter table for six, in the hope that we are at least six, instead of just the two of us all the time.

I was so inspired in my couple of bunny planters from last year and this year I found a bigger mother bunny with baby. 

I simply love them, because I think this way, the bunnies add to the Spring decor with flower plants and for Easter Sunday coming, as well.

Anyhow, here is my contribution to my Easter tablescape 2021.

Have a wonderful 'Holy Week' you all and a greater 'Easter Sunday.'

I know I will, as my sweet elderly mother, 91 years old, got vaccinated against COVID just a couple of hours ago. 

All went perfect !

May blessing showers pour your way.







The bunny family.



              My dear daughter and family are visiting and she wanted me to bake her fav cake, as she used to eat it all as soon as she hit the kitchen door after she came home from school !






                                        Mr. and Mrs. Bunny


                            You've seeing my antique china, inherited from dear MIL. It must be way over 70 years old.




               Thank you for dropping by dear friends, you make my day !

Thanking the gracious hostesses for their great parties.

LOVE,

FABBY

Happy St. Patrick's Day 2021

 Hello sweet friends !

I'm so sorry I haven't been able to post or comment, or answer your kind comments. I've been having computer problems and I just got it back as it had the fan broken inside, that was the reason it went off after five minutes, than 2 and finally never ! 

So it is fixed and hope it lasts a good while, before I get to buy a brand new one.

Here is my contribution to this year's St. Pat's Day with a tablescape I had so much fun creating it. You see, I found these cute bowls with clovers just at the knick of time, lol.. I really bought them without any hesitation because they were $ 1,00 each !

I paired them with my all green china and it looked just perfect !

Wishing all of you a great "St. Patrick's Day" and lots of LUCK for everyone !


                           The Shamrock bowls were found at a little store for a $1,00 each... lol


                          Love tulips and the green all year round !








           I paired the cute bowls with my green china and gold chargers.


                                  

The green 'Bohemian' flower vase is retro 1960's and was my mom's.


                    Thank you dear friends for your kind comments, you always make my Day !

Thanking the gracious hostesses for their parties too.

                                                  LOVE,

                                                   FABBY

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE !!

 Hello sweet friends !

Here to wish you all, a wonderful, happy, fun and romantic "Valentine's Day !"

Here is our table for the two of us.... Alejandro and me.  

I bought a pretty red flower plant for the centerpiece and later will go and plant it at the condo's garden. 

With my mom's old, 'Bavaria-Germany' rose plates and dinner plates.

I bought two years ago this cute romantic flatware and use it on Valentine's... inexpensive and fun too.

Enjoy this romantic day, however you wish to, but keep safe and happy Valentine's 2021.


A romantic and simple table setting for Alejandro and me.


I bought this adorable flatware for four place settings.


A little wine to celeb is wonderful, for sure.

The pretty rose soup plates were my mom's and they are 'Bavaria-Germany.'
I mixed them with other old dinner plates and oriental plates, for a touch of red.













Thank you dear friends for your kind comments, you always make my day !
Thanking the lovely hostesses for their fun parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

Hydrangeas for a Simple Valentine's Table

 Hello sweet friends !

It's been a month since I blogged last, I think. You see, I had my daughter Sofia, her husband, Victoria 16, Cayetana just 14 and baby Carlos-Alonso 2; here, as guests for almost a month.

It's been so wonderful and so fulfilling to visit with our sweet Sofie and our great teenagers, who are smart, fun and lots of fun.

The other day I was invited with Sofie and the girls to a Hydrangea Farm, that belongs to a school friend of my oldest Alexandra. She sells nationwide for all the various events and dealers. Now Rosie and her husband are exporting to Miami.

I wish them the best, as I've never seen such huge and gorgeous hydrangeas.

I created a simple, but elegant tablescape with red rimmed, oriental plates for Valentine's.

With that said.



         Here I am, feeling great in Hydrangea-Heaven ! My daughter Alexandra's friend from school is Rosie's Hydrangea Farm - "Hortensias del Cabogana." 

She sells all over Ecuador and now she's exporting to Florida.

These Hydrangeas are amazing and huge. So beautiful ! 

Next time I will share the purple ones that are just growing.


              Here I created a Valentine's table with red rimmed plates and white.

I took advantage that Rosie, the owner, gave Sofia and me a lot of the gorgeous hydrangeas, so I have them all over the house. I wish they never die. 

My dear friend Mariette, from Blog "Mariette Back to Basics"...  calls and knows them as the 'MOP' kind, because of such big heads, I guess.


                   

The red rimmed Oriental plates give this setting the touch of Valentine's.

Aren't the Hydrangeas too much ?! 


                        I used this stunning, Italian silk embroidery tablecloth that is my MIL's heirloom. Probably from the 1950's.








                   Here they are again inside my 'Delft-Imari' bowl, on top of my coffee table.











               I hope my daughter will come back with her family in a couple of weeks so we can celeb Valentine's at this table.

I, however, will have to 'buy' some hydrangeas to make one arrangement for a centerpiece.

Thank you dear friends for your kind comments, you so make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for their great parties.


                                                 LOVE,

                                                  FABBY
