Thinking of Mom Table for One

Our Mom was a collector - she collected all sorts of things. One of the most cherished memories of Mom is her walls and walls of plates (Dad didn't quite have the same "feelings" but was a trouper and put up with them ). Everywhere you looked in the house, the walls were covered with plates. She especially loved Norman Rockwell plates. So, Pat went looking through the stacks and stacks of Mom's plates and found one that reminded her of our Mother. Here's to you, Mom....
The table

The inspiration Norman Rockwell plate

Pat found this vintage napkin and thought it was perfect for the table

The luncheon plate is "Lapis" Fiesta by Homer Laughlin

Pat took her cue for this plate from the napkin - "Sunflower" Fiesta

The charger is "Periwinkle" Fiesta

I made real lemonade - I know it doesn't look like it, but it's real..... 

Where it came from:
Placemat - from Pier 1
Assorted Fiesta Dinnerware - from Macy's, eBay, and Replacements
Napkin - from our collection
Napkin Ring - simple PVC pipe cut into 1" rounds and spray painted white
Flatware - "Silver Tear" by Gourmet Settings from TJMaxx

We will be joining Christine's "Table It" link party Monday at Rustic & Refined:
We will also be joining Susan for "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:


  1. I love this! So charming and such lovely colors. Have a nice weekend.

  2. Aww, your settings for one, just marvelous! Blue and yellow together always makes my heart pitter patter!


  3. Oh this is so sweet! Love the Norman Rockwell plate and the sentiment attached to it. I spent the Mother's Day weekend with my mom and was staring at all her trinkets and ended up using a few for the table I set. Love the colors of the dishes you put together. Great tribute table in memory of your mom!

  4. What a lovely tribute to your mother! The Fiesta dishes are perfect and so lovely!
