Bicycling with Fiesta(ware)

As most people who know her understand, my sister is a "fresh air freak."  She walks miles a day according to her "Fitbit" (in addition to going to the gym five days a week but that's another story.) She works in her yard for hours in all kinds of weather, but her true love is bicycling. She rode for years and still has a fondness for the sport. So this week's table is a tribute to the bicycle......

To add more interest, Pat alternated every other place setting using the same color theme

The napkin ring is a simple PVC pipe cut into 1" rounds and spray painted

Fiesta(ware) colors are Turquoise, Rose, and Sunflower

Flatware is ceramic handled "Primary" by Noritake

Pat placed turquoise salt/pepper shakers at one end of the table and rose colored shakers at the other end

The large bicycle acts as the centerpiece and flower holder

Pat added flowers to the basket

These cute bicycles are actually name card holders - you can see where Pat picked up the colors for the dinnerware.

  1. What an adorably cute spring or summer table. Love all the colors, and those cute lil bikes, just delightful. I have a bike similar to the one in the center of the table......mine is hanging on the wall and I put flowers in the basket Where did you find those cute lil blue bikes??
    Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.
    Blessings, Nellie

  3. So so cute, the little bicycles are adorable and I love the color palette, so fresh and summery!

  4. This is a beautifully fresh table. I love the colours and the bicycles make it a very special table. Are the candleholders also Fiesta?


  5. That table is beautiful on its own, but the addition of the bicycles makes it extra special. I love the little place card bicycles and hope that maybe I can still find some at Pier 1 online. (I'll be checking). Those plate stack colors are so very pretty. Another winner!

  6. What a beautiful table!!! Love everything about it. You have inspired me to revisit tablescaping and use the good stuff.

  7. Beautiful table, I love the fiestaware colors. Have a great weekend ladies!

  8. Fun place settings! Have you seen the new Fiestaware bicycle plates and mugs?
