Assorted Fiesta(ware) Table

One of Pat's favorite tricks is to take a colorful napkin and use it as the inspiration for a tablescape. This week's napkin was found at TJMaxx last year. Pat pulled out an assortment of colorful Fiesta(ware) and went about creating the place setting.

This is actually a Fiesta(ware) Buffet plate - Kohl's sells it as a luncheon plate. It's 9" across but does not have the customary rim.

Where it came from:
Place Mat/Napkin - from TJMaxx last year
Charger - by Bernardaud from Tuesday Morning several years ago
Dinner Plate, Bread/Butter Plate, and Salt/Pepper Shakers - "Peacock" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Macy's and Replacements three or four years ago
Luncheon/Buffet Plate - "Lemongrass" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Kohl's
Salad Plate/Liner - "White" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Kohl's
Soup Bowl/Mug - "Shamrock" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Kohl's
Flatware - "Primary" Ceramic Handled flatware by Noritake from eBay and Replacements
Glassware - from Pier 1 several years ago
Napkin Ring - from Pier 1 three or four years ago
Gnome - from our collection

We will be joining the following Blog parties this week:
"Dishing It! & Digging It!" at Rustic & Refined this Sunday:
"Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:


  1. Oh, I think this is one of my favorite "Table for One" settings! I love all those colors together, the pattern of the platemat and napkin is perfectly set off with all the solid pieces. And that glassware - it could not be more perfect! The gnome adds a touch of whimsy while still carrying on the blue theme. Just love it all!

  2. Wow, this is stunning and I love the color palette. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Gorgeous color palette and love those dishes. Thank you for sharing at Dishing it and Digging it link party.

  4. Share, if you will please, any method or hints for removing utensil marks from Fiesta. We have the old cornflower blue and the old very pale yellow. We scour periodically with Bar Keepers friend (carefully) but it is a lot of "elbow grease" to have the utensil marks reappear immediately! Thanks!

  5. Sorry, I said that our Fiesta was cornflower--it is the old periwinkle. Neither one of us remembers the name of the yellow. Both are problematic when it comes to utensil marks!
