First Fall Luncheon for my nephew


Hello sweet friends !

Our dear nephew is here visiting us from NYC, where he lives. He graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston two years ago. 

Now he resides and works in NYC as a 'Music Producer and Engineer' and we are so proud of him.

My first Fall 2017 table is fixed for six cause one guest confirmed after I took the pics, therefore, we are seven today, Monday...September 11, a very sad day Americans will never forget.

I invited him, his parents, my brother and his wife, hubby's sister... my mother, (his grandma) and a bother in law for a luncheon in his honor.

I'm preparing a special dish Daniel loves called 'Churrasco' which is beef stake with white rice, two fried eggs, potato fries and a lettuce, avocado salad with tomatoes and onions. Dessert will be mother's 'Sweet-plantain Cake,' we love. Wine and coffee.

I chose for a table setting my black and white pumpkins and pitcher which were DIYed last year for me by a good friend's husband... some of you might remember.
Calla as flowers to keep the white going with my white stone wear everyday china.

Continue prayers for Florida. May God bless Miami, Tampa and all the affected places from the devastating hurricane.
 
Prayers for the people of Mexico who underwent a horrific and devastating earthquake. Very, very sad times indeed.

This is my first share of "Fall white 2017" tablescape.


DIYed black and white 'MacKenzie-Childs style' pumpkins and old silver pitcher.



I arranged the centerpiece on a tray that goes with the chargers. Some natural dried fern branches.


I used here my white stone wear china. The napkin rings are some in a form of a sunflower and others in a dry leaf shape.

Some of you who follow me might have seen my $20 new soup tureen with Fleur de Lys.

More fall leaves napkin rings.


The calla-lily is from the garden of our condo.



Tea, coffee and dessert buffet setting.

I used the Calla to continue with the white and to keep a more manly style to the setting.


I'm making pineapple fresh juice for the Fleur de Lys white pitcher.



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

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

LOVE,
FABBY

August Rosary-Prayers for Texas


Hello sweet friends!

As most of the friends that follow me know that I hold a rosary prayer here at home, the last Wednesday of every month to pray for world peace, for Ecuador and the USA and for sure everyone in our families, as well as for friends that have requested and we are specially praying for a good blog friend as well, may she wins the battle she's enduring.

We are including prayers for Houston-Texas this month; hopping the flood provoked by hurricane Harvey's wrath to all the people in the affected zones that are enduring right now, as I type this words.

May our Lord, Jesus Christ with His power and Glory gives them the strength they need and that everyone is safe.
 
We also beg our Lord to make it stop very soon. Amen.

Blessings for Texas and to each one of you.






Meissen two tier centerpiece. 



Antique water pitcher with blue.





Beautiful antique hand-crochet tablecloth that belonged to Mr. Living's grandmother.

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

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

LOVE,
FABBY

Fall vignettes and Ideas from Past Posts


Hello sweet friends!

Here are some images from past blog posts for Fall, as I am getting a little inspired myself and I'm trying not to repeat my posts from the past.

I don't overdo the decorating, as I hate to start moving the things I already have on a regular basis; so I work around them.

So lets see some of them together.










 























Of course there are lots more from my seven years of blogging, but these are the ones I found easily.

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

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

LOVE,
FABBY

Table Spread for "Tea-Day 2017"


Hello sweet friends !

     For "TEA DAY 2017" I have created a table with a hand crochet table topper, my 'Old Country Roses' Royal Albert three tier; from Madrid - last May I got for MD from hubby and the plate from DD Alex.

 The tea set and teacups are antique from after WWII and they are Bavarian-Made in US-ZONE, Germany. I once read that these things were made in Germany around 1946-1948.

Tomorrow that mother comes to spend the day with us we will have tea time afternoon and devour enjoy all these goodies I have displayed here, lol... 

Ok, here you have it and I hope you enjoy it too.
 
       
 
The only thing I didn't mention at the top is that the salad plates are from my Tognana china, dinnerware  from Italy. I realized that the porcelain color is exactly alike the German tea set; plus the color of the design as well.
 

Sweet Cinnamon rolls here too.
 
 
I love cheese with my bread, so there it is at your right.
 

My mother's favorite 'Vanilla Pound cake. '
 
 
 
The beautiful Bavaria, antique US-ZONE, Germany tea set. I read that they were made around 1946 until only 1948, this makes them collectors items.
 
One of my fav china is this lovely Italian-Tognana dinner ware for eight place settings that
I own for maybe more then 30 years.
 
Didn't they matched really perfect!
 

 
 
 
This pretty white tureen is my new find from a couple of months ago.

It says Honk-Kong in the back and it has 'Fleur de Lys' all around it and in the lid as handle too and it looks like it would be part of my lovely white pitcher !

The best part is that it was only $20... so I couldn't pass it up, it kept on screaming my name...hehehe

It has an old world charm to it that I love.
 

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

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

LOVE,
FABBY
