Fiesta Daffodil Table

With daffodils beginning to bloom all over the place, Pat decided it was time to set a table using our newest Fiesta(ware) color - "Daffodil." She paired it with black and gray.
Pat has never been afraid to mix colors....the more bold, the better.

Since Homer Laughlin does not make bread/butter plates anymore in the Fiesta(ware) pattern (much to my dismay), this is an appetizer plate with a salsa bowl on top.

One of my favorite glassware patterns, I found these at - they are "Jet Black" by Reizart.

I collect Fiesta(ware) bread and butter plates - this one is "Pearl Gray" (1999-2001)

Everyone recognizes the iconic Salt and Pepper shape of Fiesta(ware)

These flower vases are actually candle holders turned upside down

Fiesta(ware) and Bordallo Cabbage Table

Our daytime weather is suppose to "dip" into the 50's this weekend (yeah, I know........remember this is California) making a meal of soup the perfect choice. Pat decided to challenge herself to use one of her favorites (Homer Laughlin "Fiesta[ware]")and one of mine (Bordallo Pinheiro "Cabbage") to set this week's table.

My very own first set of flatware - "Iron Brown" by Noritake purchased in the 1970's. Thanks to Replacements and eBay, I have been able to replace missing and chipped pieces over the years (the handles are ceramic.)

Pat used Franciscan's "Vegetable Medley" accent/salad plates

Another purchase from the 1970's, the glassware is "Clarion" by Lenox. Obviously (and surprisingly), it is really sturdy.

The Bordallo "Cabbage" butter dish 

The way we love bread around here, it's a wonder these lasted long enough for the picture. Pat took a glass cylinder and lined it with a brown napkin to serve the sourdough baguettes.

This small leaf bowl is for salad dressing

One last look from the other end of the table
