Fiestaware Winter Time Tablescape

I know "climate change" is not a particularly exciting topic, but here in sunny California, we are having record cold weather - 25 to 30 degrees weather days on end when normally it is 50-55 degrees. We've gone through record drought during the last four years and currently, this season, we are 10 inches over "normal" rainfall. Then add lots of hardly ever seen snow, hail storms, and huge mud and rock slides throughout the county. What a wild ride!!! Throw in a couple 5.5 and 6.9 earthquakes, and you've got some really wacky stuff  happening - and this was just in December.

So, because of all this,  Pat decided to set a "more calming"  table celebrating our Winter. Here's what she came up with:

Although the picture is a bit "washout," this is Fiesta "Evergreen" (2007-2009)

Pat filled the centerpiece with small pieces of wood

Pat found these fabulous wood and metal reindeer at Tuesday Morning two year ago

Marigold Candles, Greenery, Pinecones - from Michael's

We will be joining the following Blog parties this week:
"Dishing It! & Digging It!" at Rustic & Refined this Sunday:
"Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:


  1. Beautiful table, I love the mix of textures and shiny plates and glass. The salad plates are great!

  2. Very pretty and it is peaceful! Hope you have a calmer January!

  3. Love your table, ladies! I especially like the flatware!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  4. Love the combination of colors!

  5. Can someone email as to how to get the new tablescapes in my inbox when they happen. I can't seem to find a sign up place here to get them. I love doing tablescapes for myself. No one ever comes but I like to look at them.
