This table was inspired by the napkins. I found them at my favorite thrift shop for $2.99 for a set of six.  I would have never thought to combine Apricot, Chocolate and Rose Fiesta had it not been for the napkins. I took out all my Apricot Fiesta with the exception of a medium vase. The cookie jar was a clearance purchase at Kohl's last year. The Rose Fiesta napkin rings came from eBay. The pink glasses were purchased at an estate sale and the amber glasses were purchased at the Goodwill. I copied the idea of putting the glass votive holders on the candles holders from another Fiesta collector.  I think that is the best idea. 
I used my Chocolate Fiesta flat ware. I have fun setting up the table for a nice meal.  It makes it a little more special.

Goodwill Finds

We stopped at the Goodwill after work today.  It was a good thing.  I found 1 Harlequin dinner plate and two salad plates in green.  I also found an Ovenserve plate. They are all in pretty good shape and for $2.50 it was well worth it. I also found some glass votives that are for a candle holder that was found at Pier 1 on clearance because it was missing the votive holders.  Good buys make me happy.

Fiesta Peacock and Scarlet

The inspiration for this table was the bowl made in Turkey.  My nephew and his girlfriend gave it to me. When I opened the package Celeste told me she was sorry it was not made in the USA.  I guess she has been listening when I talk about Fiesta. LOL.   I found the napkin rings at Bed Bath and Beyond (clearance). The  red glasses are from Dillard's and the others are from Pier 1. The napkins and flatware are Fiesta. Last year I used Peacock and Yellow. I am going to try it with Chocolate soon.
