Looking Forward to Spring Fiesta(ware) Tablescape

As we continue our month long celebration of the release of the new Fiesta(ware) color for 2022, Pat wanted a little brighter look for our third Fiesta(ware) tablescape this month.  As you know, Fiesta dinnerware colors blend well with each other. You can design many totally unique tablescapes if you have two or more colors to work with. One of Pat's favorite Fiesta color combinations is Turquoise and Lemongrass. It sounds a bit odd but it makes a striking and fun place setting.
Although we have had heavy rains, devastating winds, and unlikely snow storms, Pat still has daffodils blooming in her yard in the middle of January. While these flowers on the table are silk, she has beautiful colorful blooms throughout her yard.

Flatware is satin "Vault" stainless steel by Gourmet Settings

Formal and Fun Fiesta(ware) Tablescape

The Homer Laughlin Company announced the new Fiesta(ware) color this week - it's called "Peony" and is described as "a soft shade of blush." It will be available in June. Pat will just have to wait....

So, this is our second week of tables featuring Fiesta(ware) in celebration of the new color. Pat decided on a bit more formal style with a touch of whimsy. Once again, it shows how versatile Fiesta can be.

Oversized black flatware is by Jankng. We found it on eBay several years ago
