Goodbye Claret Fiesta(ware) Tablescape

The Homer Laughlin Company just announced that they will be retiring the colors "Claret" and "Tangerine" to make room for the Fiesta Dinnerware's new released color - "Mulberry." Pat thought it would be a good idea to set this week's tables (on this blog and our other one) using the retired colors.
In addition to "Claret," Pat mixed "Rose" and "Ivory" Fiestaware. The bread/butter plate is actually an appetizer plate (Homer Laughlin stopped producing bread/butter plates a few years ago - much to my dismay.)

Since the place setting was quite busy, Pat used a simple arrangement of greenery for the centerpiece.












No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get a "clear" picture of the glassware.

The Moose is Loose Table

This week's table is just for fun. Pat used dinnerware that we bought years ago when Kohl's first opened in our area. We haven't used it on this blog in a long time.  I'm not a big fan of square dishes, but Pat loves them. (She loves straight lines - her garden beds are straight, her quilts are straight designs, her furniture has straight lines - everything including Pat is straight up and down. Me? I'm round. My flower beds curve, my furniture bends, everything, including the pets, are "circular.")

Anyway, here's the table for this week:
To me, this is the perfect wintertime tablescape. The dinnerware is massive and heavy -just right for a hearty meal.



Pat used copper flatware and water goblets for a more rustic look.



To add more "weight," Pat used a heavy ceramic tile as a charger
