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
Where it came from:
"Green" Dinnerware - "Cabbage" by Bordallo Pinheiro from wherever we can find it
