Lunch @ D´Box On Swedish Father's Day

I was not really feeling well after arriving in a cold Autumn...

That's right! After the 4 weeks of R & R in The Philippines with a temp up to 35 degrees centigrade, my body was used on the warm weather. When I arrived, in a cold, windy and dark Sweden, my body get shocked! LoL*

I didn't start working directly when I arrived. I was thinking to do the tasks that me & GH (great hubby) has left behind while we were enjoying the sunny days. So, after a week, flu strike at D´Box and the cough stuck awhile and my ear got infected due to severe colds. Mama Mia... and now, it is GH turn and it's been a week for him.

Well, that's LIFE... sometimes we're UP and sometimes we're down... Anyhow, we'd finished the tasks to be done and the backyard is free from the summer furniture.

  4. You are such a sweetheart!!! I am just blown away by the love and care you put into preparing such a pretty table to celebrate your wonderful husband. And he is always such a good sport. He patiently poses for the pictures when I know all he really wants to do it get down to eating! That's great! I love what you did with the vase and votive! And the way you did the napkin...SO cool! Very pretty, Chie! The color on your table is just gorgeous with the white. I'm sorry you and your hubby have both been sick. I think that's what happens when we go from one extreme climate to another. I hope you are both feeling 100% soon! Have a good weekend!!!

  5. Oj vilket jobb du lägger ner på dukningen, jättefint! .. =)
    Och maten ser jättegod ut, tur jag nyss har ätit middag annars hade jag blivit hungrig .. =)

    Ja min lilla Clara växer och är stor, hon fyllde 2 år i augusti och fick en lillasyster i Juni som heter Alice .. =)

    Jag jobbar ju inte heltid och mina barn är vuxna så jag har ganska mycket fritid .. =D

    Må så gott!
    Kram Patricia

  6. Youmust be feeling better, Chie, cause this is a really good looking meal and tablescape you prepared. I love the colors you put together. Neat how you put the flower napkin accessory and what a great idea of using faberge eggs as salt cellars. I am copying that cause I have a lot of them, including one I bought from Stockhom....Christine

  7. Your Guy looks so happy in the photo! The Father's Day color of turquoise is so pretty with the white layers of china at each placesetting. The menu looks delicious and I know was so appreciated. Hope you are feeling better and your body was in shock coming from the Phillipines climate. Do you celebrate a day of Thanksgiving in Sweden in the fall?

    Thank, Pam

  8. Chie!!!! So glad you are back and back at entertaining....those veggies look absolutely wonderful! Love your beautiful table setting...always a delight to see your creativity!
    Enjoy your day :)

  9. So glad that you had a wonderful visit to the Philippines, and I hope that you both have recovered from your bout with the flu. I think that this is my favorite of all your tables to date. The colors and textures work beautifully together. The idea of using the Faberge Eggs for salt and pepper is outstanding. I have some Limoge boxes that I'm going to put to good use for some of my tablescapes. Thanks for the idea and for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay
