Happy New Year 2019!!

 
Happy New Year, everyone! Here's wishing you all a very peaceful and prosperous 2019!! And hopefully, everybody stays healthy.
 
For my table, I chose to mix silver, grey and turquoise colors
 


I started with a fluted silver plate charger, topped with a turquoise dinner plate, a set I bought from Homegoods while visiting my mom in Illinois a few years ago, and layered with oval grey "CMG" Portuguese salad plates and soup bowls. The pattern name is "Sari". I had bought these from Horchow many years ago. I love the ruffled edges of the bowls and the subtle design on the plates.

I even found a similar design on the napkins from Pier 1, also from a few years back. Most of my tableware have been accumulated from many years back, since we have downsized quite a bit and I pretty much stopped buying, due to major shortage of storage space.




Do you still have your Christmas decorations up? I usually leave mine until the Feast of the Three Kings on Jan. 6. That has been the tradition that I grew up with in the Philippines.





 I love decorating new year's table with snowflakes. Although it's been a really hot winter here in Florida, it somehow makes it feel cooler with the snowflakes.

 
I also like using this chickadee tea set for winter settings.


And there it is, our new year's table for 2019. I don't even think we will get to use it since we are invited to a party on New Year's eve, unless I have some unexpected guests come on New Year's Day.
 
I hope you all enjoy the holiday and you all stay safe if you are going out.
 
Thanks for your visit!

8 Days of Christmas Tablescape, Dec. 2018

I titled this blog "8 Days of Christmas" because I only have a table good for 8 people. Actually, I have 12  Days of Christmas salad plates.
 
I hope you are all enjoying this Christmas season! December is going way too fast and pretty soon, Christmas will be here. Are you all ready? I am, and my presents are all wrapped and under the tree.

I have a tablecloth and napkins matching these salad plates, but I couldn't find them at first so I used a plaid one. And of course, I located them as soon as I completed setting the table, but I was not about to take it apart to replace the tablecloth.





The 12 Days of Christmas dinner plates are big so I used them as  plate chargers and opted to use my plaid plates for the dinner plates.


 Salt and pepper shakers
 2 turtle doves basket

8 maids a milking, though there is only one present here.










Spode Christmas tree tea set with Villeroy and Boch tray, tea warmer and an espresso tea and saucer set.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I would like to greet each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas and a Peaceful and Happy New Year!!
 
Thanks to all the hostesses of these memes that I am linking with.
