White Table

I failed at my first attempt at a white table. I had joked with Kathleen that this table would make my brain hurt.  It did.. It didn't help that I read the rules incorrectly. So as I was getting ready to link up today, I reread the rules and redid my table. You can see my first attempt further down below.

I like white as an accent to my colorful Fiesta. I like how it looks on other people's tables. It is odd for me to see it on my table but I was up for the challenge and I was able to get it done. So a tiny victory for me. YAY!
The plates that I used as chargers are a thrifty find that are marked Made for Federated Department Stores. The napkin rings were found at Kmart but they were sold as ornaments. They are a different style. I liked them and knew I would use them for this purpose. Of course, there is White Fiesta on the table. Would you expect there not to be?




There you have a white table from the gal who loves color. Thanks to Kathleen for hosting Let's Dish. Be sure to check out everyone's table.

PS: Here is my first attempt.

Two Tables

Since I showed my friend's table last week, I  didn't post what was on my table. So I will show it off with this weeks.  It was rather plain. I didn't get very inspired. It started with the napkins and wanting to use Lapis again.  Aside from Lapis, there is White, Yellow, Scarlet and Lemongrass.




So this week, I used my new to me tablecloth that my friend Ruby gave me for my birthday! We hadn't seen each in months and we only had a few minutes but it was good to see her.
 The Fiesta colors are Lapis, Marigold and Shamrock.  My tureen needed some attention so I brought it out as the centerpiece.



We had pancakes for breakfast on Sunday. Hubs makes me extra for the rest of the week.
I hope you are having a good week.

Coca-Cola Table

I have been telling my best friend that I have wanted to set a table with some of her dishes. I went to her house last week and she just cleared her table off and went to work on a tablescape. I hope to set a couple more with her other sets of Coca-Cola dishes. My friend collects Coco-Cola like I collect Fiesta.
It was spur of the moment table and we didn't have linens. She just took out the fondue pot. I used one of her mini tables to sit it on.
 The coke bottles to the left are salt & pepper shakers.


The white  bottles are also salt & pepper shakers.

I just love the faces on these dishes.
I hope you enjoyed a break from the Fiesta dishes. My mind is working on another table with my dishes and also with my friend's collection.
