Winter Fiestaware Tablescape

Winter signals shorter days and heartier meals - so Pat brought out heavy-duty Fiesta(ware) and set this week's table with White and discontinued Periwinkle dinnerware.
Pat took her cue for the color theme from the plaid place mats

The glassware and flatware are over forty years old (with the exception of a few "replacements" because of earthquakes and accidents - thank goodness for Replacements. Ltd.....) They are surprisingly sturdy and obviously long lasting.

Flatware is ceramic handled "Iron Brown" by Noritake

The napkin ring is a simple shower curtain spray-painted to match the charger

Pat's dear husband "got the job" of spray painting the chargers and napkin rings to coordinate with the plaid place mats.

Glassware is "Clarion Brown" by Lenox - yes, I used to use them for everyday.....always hand washed but never "babied"

I looked for what seemed like months for brown salt and pepper shakers - found these at JoAnn's Fabrics years ago

Where it came from:
Plaid Place Mat - from Pier 1 two years ago
Mocha Charger - Inexpensive plastic lacquer chargers spray painted to match the place mat
Dinnerware - "White" and "Periwinkle" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Kohl's, eBay, Macy's, and
Flatware - "Iron Brown" by Noritake from Walsh's (a local wedding and gift store long out of business)
Glassware - "Clarion" Brown by Lenox from Walsh's years ago and from
Brown Salt and Pepper Shakers - from JoAnn's Fabrics and Craft Store years ago
Brown Napkins - Handmade by Pat
Beige Hemstitch Napkins - from Pier 1 three or four years ago
Napkin Rings - Curtain Rings spray painted to match chargers
Lanterns - from Pier 1 last year

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:  
"The Scoop Link  Party" at Stone Gable: (Here)  


  1. The soft brown colors is just perfect for my day here in Indiana. Its windy and rainy if you can believe it! That warm color is right up my alley today!

  2. Very nice! The placemat colors are a great inspiration, and they inspired a soft, wintry tablescape. I love the lanterns as the centerpiece. (I find myself falling more and more in love with lanterns.) Happy New Year!

  3. I love that periwinkle blue color! Our first set of glassware were that color of brown when we married 40 years ago. I like the brown mixed with the blue- great color combo!
