Persimmon Fiesta Table

For this week's table, Pat wanted to challenge herself by using Fiesta tableware in a different way - not the usually bright, sometimes overly colorful tables that are common with Fiesta dishes. She pulled out Persimmon dinner plates and combined them with inexpensive dishware from Pier 1 to use for a wine tasting party for six. Here is what she came up with:
Over view of the table

Each place setting has three wine glasses in addition to a water and a champagne glass

Flatware is the very popular "Treble Clef" from Gourmet Settings

The tidbit plate was perfect for first course hors d'oeurves

This is the "Persminnon" salad plate from Fiesta by Homer Laughlin

Pat used "Spice Route" extra large salad plates from Pier 1 

The "Persimmon" Fiesta dinner plate acted as the charger

We bought these placemats on clearance for next to nothing  a while ago - Bed, Bath, and Beyond have them back this season but not as colorful (and more money)

All serious tablescapers have these - from the Dollar Store

Assorted wine glasses to taste the different wines

Another one of Pat's bargains - bought on clearance from Pier 1 - she used them to display the assorted wines

Copper candle holders

From the other end of the table

 Pat tried copper flatware to match the candle holders:
Flatware is "Hammered" from Horchow's

I really liked the copper flatware but it did not show up well next to the plates

 Here's where it came from:
"French Quarters" Placemats - Bed, Bath, and Beyond on sale last year
Flatware - "Treble Clef" by Gourmet Settings from TJMaxx
Green Glassware - by Libby from the Dollar Store
Clear Wine Glasses - "Entertain" boxed sets from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Fiesta Dinnerware - from eBay and
Beige Dinner Plates - "Spice Route" Sesame from Pier 1
Eiffel Tower Tidbit Plates - from Pier 1 two years ago
Napkins and Napkin Rings - from Pier 1
Olive Green Votive Holders - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Olive Green Candle Holders - from Pier 1
Eiffel Tower - from Ross
Copper Flatware - "Hammered" from Horchow's

We will be joining Susan for "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:

  1. This table is wonderful! I love the colors! I especially liked the bottles of wine on candlesticks and that you use copper in the mix. A great idea and centerpiece! Your Paris theme is well accomplished. I think I should drop buy and sample a few glasses of wine! Love wind and your table!
