Vintage Apricot Fiesta(ware) and Plaid Tablescape

As an homage to all things vintage, Pat set this week's table using retired "Apricot" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin. Definitely subdued in color by today's more contemporary, sharper Fiesta, this pastel dinnerware looks good in both a formal and a casual setting. Produced from 1986 through 1998, it is known as "Post 86" Fiesta - thus making it "modern" by Fiesta standards. Unfortunately, the prices for pieces in this color have soared over the last few years.
I have to admit that I am much more fond of the pastel Fiesta(ware) than some of the current bold colors that are available today

Flatware is modern, sleek "Addison" stainless steel by Mikasa

Pat mixed a "White" Fiesta(ware) luncheon plate with "Apricot" 
Glasses are from Pier 1 several years ago
The table has a simple, fairly unadorned center to show up the place setting

Apricot and Gray Plaid Place Mats - from Tuesday Morning three or four years ago
