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

July Rosary Prayer - Tea Table & More


Hello sweet friends!

Not much more to say here, except most of you who follow me know I have a gathering of ten, more or less friends who come to my house for Rosary prayers, the last Wednesday of each month and I offer them right after a 'humble tea' with just bread, cheese and home made jam or marmalade.

We pray for anyone who requests for something special as family, friends, the sick, our children, the country, etc. You can make requests, we very happily and gladly oblige dear friends, so please feel free.

Blessings to you all.



This is a vintage bone china, complete for eight place settings.
For this month's Rosary prayers I used just the tea set, cups and saucers and two small bowls for the jams.

I usually take this dinner set out in the Fall, paired with orange rimmed big dinner plates as chargers. The real dinner plates are here for the tea set as they are a bit smaller then modern ones.

The blue and orange hand embroidered tablecloth was made by me, around 25 years ago and the leaves are sort of Fallish too.

I love the mums design along with butterflies and yes, it's a vintage classic Asian design
 
The color of the 'Alstroemedia' pick up one of the same color mums in the china too.

I buy this lovely and inexpensive flowers every two weeks at my local supermarket. Always love the fresh and pretty sight at home.


My new 'Zebra' variety plant I replaced the Lucky Bamboo with on my favorite blue and white vessel, most of you have seen in this 'blue and white' corner of my dining room. 


I took the 'Lucky-Bamboo,' that had grown so much, to the family room. I will show you that when I decorate for Fall.

On the other side of the table I used my also, antique from the 30's Japanese, "Satsumi-Kutani" tea set. This way the ladies can help themselves to more tea, coffee, etc.


Looks like my dining room is getting bluer and bluer (smile)... and white ! 



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

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

LOVE,
FABBY

Pink Boho-Chic Setting


Hello sweet friends!

I've been wanting to create a "Boho-chic" table setting for a party at home, so I started to shop at home for fun things and so I came up with a mostly pink table setting, by using a busy print table topper and a happy floral runner with big pink flowers and napkins to match.

I used some antique things as well, starting with my dear MIL's pink floral china.

I'll explain under each image what they are.


So here is what I came out with as a "Boho-chic" table setting... I guess you're gonna have to take my word for it, lol..

Anyway, so I used two patterns to set the table on.
The one is the table topper with a floral and heart flowers I made myself (few years ago) and a floral runner with pink flowers and big napkins to match.

The gold glass chargers are from Turkey. (here goes the nationality of things)
Then my dear MIL's antique, made in USA, 'Pink-Rose china' and on top purple and pink glass sherbets.

This Art-Deco antique crystal liquor bottle beauty and glasses is also a heirloom from dear MIL. 

Pink sherbet

Purple sherbet

French antique, hand painted 'Opaline' flower vase.


The water gold and red water glasses are antique as well from the "Bohemian-Czech Republic."


So there, this is it... my so called "Boho-chic in Pink tablescape."

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

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

LOVE,
FABBY

Summer Plate Rack & Rhubarb-Strawberry Pie


Hello sweet friends!

So I walk up the other morning with an arch to eat home made 'Rhubarb and Strawberry pie' and I wanted to make it myself, as I did many times when my girls were young and hubby loved it !

Yesterday I went and bought some rhubarb and strawberries at the fruit market near me and proceeded to work today, Tuesday, as mother also comes every Wednesday for lunch and spends the day with us and I'm sure she would love a piece for dessert.

Ok, I also have the recipe for you... I found this one on Pinterest. I loved it, but I guess maybe I like my crust a little bit better... but hey, you try it!
The recipe is at the end of this post.

I wanted to try another recipe for a change, plus this one has a crumble on top that makes it quite crispy and yummier.

The recipe is: "Deep-Dish Strawberry & Rhubarb Pie with Crumb Topping."

I'm not sorry I did it, it's fabulous!



Look how pretty it came out too! You can see how the delicious and crisp 'crumb topping' looks.

This pie is called: "Deep Dish, Strawberry and Rhubarb Pie with Crumb Topping."

I had hoped the piece of pie would have come out more in a triangle, but I guess it was a little warm still, I'm sure the slice will be prettier tomorrow.


I did this little tea table with my ever lovaly Onion china; to show off my pie and for us to have a taste, which we did, lol..
 
The centerpiece shells are displayed on a Delft blue and white planter.

So... I was also in the mood to change my plate rack with some 'Summer' dishes.

On top the Limoges aqua dinner plates from my mom's china and fish soup plates.

The fish plates are a set for four settings, and use them for like a Fish Stew, as there are big soup bowls on the top shelf.  I usually make it in cold weather.


I do get a kick of changing and re-arranging seasonal this cute plate shelf, hubby had made for me last year. Last display was a patriotic 4th. of July 2017 d├ęcor, some of you saw it.

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

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

LOVE,
FABBY

Lemons and Apples for a Summer Table



Hello sweet friends!

Here I created a Summer table setting for six with three lemon plates and three apple plates, on top of green dinner plates from my green china.

I had some flowers at home, so I arranged them on a white soup tureen as I also used for the Summer setting white place mats and center doily.

Hope you are all enjoying great Summer weather, BBQ's and sand if you are near a beach, or simply have some "Lazy dazy hazy days of Summer."



I picked my lemon and apple salad plates to pair them with my dinner plates from my green china and mixed and matched the setting for a Summer fresh look.


 

I had some Astromelias at home so I arranged them on a white soup tureen.
The green stems are from my C'mas stash and the etched crystal water glasses are Czech Bohemian .

I'm still playing with my 'Royal Albert, Old Country Roses,' three tier cake stand and trivet dear Alex and hubby gifted me for Mom's Day while in Madrid.
 
I arranged the buffet with the 'RA, Lady Carlyle' three tier on the other side of it and my silver teaset in center. 

The marmalade bowl, with a soldier is French antique.

 

Thank you so much dear friends for taking the time to visit and comment, you always make my day !

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

LOVE,
FABBY
