Hello everyone!! I hope that you are still celebrating this beautiful season! We are again getting snow so I guess we are having a white winter:-)
Since my husband is from Puerto Rico, we will celebrate "Los Tres Reyes Magos" or "The Three Kings" on Jan. 6. According to the custom, children will put grass in a box under their beds for the camels and the three kings will leave gifts as they did for baby Jesus. Remember that the wise men were not at the manger for the birth. Some scholars think it might have taken at least one or more years to get there. For more information about this holiday, click on this link: "Los Tres Reyes Magos." So I will be sharing a "Three Kings" themed tablescape today as part of "Tablescape Thursday", hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.
I was inspired by a piece of fabric I bought in Turkey. It has three different camels and just reminded me of the wise men.
Then I added some beautiful plates I also bought in Turkey...
And one from Spain...
Then I added three wise men from my mother's nativity...
I put it all together and came up with this...
Oh, and don't forget to finish the meal with a Turkish coffee! Very similar to Cuban coffee, this coffee is very strong, not filtered and has sugar but no cream.
Where it all came from:
Handpainted plates, "Big John's" in Adana, Turkey
Turkisk coffee cups and saucers, Turkey
Glassware, World Market
Oneida "Golden Julliard" stainless flatware
Napkins and napkin rings, World Market
Lanterns, World Market
I hope you enjoyed my "Three Kings" table. Thanks SO much for stopping by! I read all your comments and love coming by to see your beautiful tables, decor, recipes, etc., or just saying hello. Have a beautiful and blessed New Year!! Anita
