Fiesta Yellows and Oranges

It is time for Tablescape Thursday over at Between Naps on the Porch. 
I found the napkins some time last year at my favorite thrift store.  They are April Cornell. They had the original price tag of $16.00. I paid $2.99. I was saving them for a Spring table but never got around to it.  Then came the napkin rings.  They are also April Cornell and they were a gift from my friend. I love the birds on the napkins. I apologize for the pictures. I barely got my camera to turn on but I am still posting because I didn't want to miss the party.

The Fiesta colors are in the new Marigold, Yellow, Sunflower, Paprika, Persimmon, Tangerine and Shamrock. The table cloth was given to my mom by her aunt who I considered as my grandmother. My grandmothers had passed on long before I was born. My mom added the lace to make it fit her table. It has stains and a few holes but I still love it just the same.  My mom used take it out for Thanksgiving. The place mats were also a gift. I love that I can't run the risk of shrinking these.

At first when I found the yellow bowl, I thought it was a large mixing bowl but when I got home and washed it I realized it was the bottom of the casserole dish. I have the lid in Yellow and this bowl is in Sunflower. It works.
This is new Fiesta Rice/Dessert bowl. These were also a gift. When I received these I knew I had to use them on this table.  The Marigold was the final piece.
The pitcher is one of my favorite Fiesta shapes and Persimmon is my favorite color.
My hubby let me play with my dishes while he made dinner.
I hope you have a great.

Thanks for stopping by.

Getting Ready for the All-Star Game

We are getting ready for the All-Star game on Tuesday. Although both my are not doing very well, I support them.
I have been wanting to have a baseball table for a while.  With just the Fiesta salt and pepper shakers, I didn't think I had enough. When I found the baseball jar at Tuesday Morning, I made my mind up to try it. It was then fueled by the Texas Ranger salt and pepper shakers that my friend gave me. As I was thinking of which glasses to use and searching the "Dodger Room" for stuff for my table, I saw these glass mugs.  I don't remember getting these.  I put the napkin inside so you could see the etching.  Our names are on the back.  The plastic Dodger plates and bowl were found at a flea market several years ago.   The menu will include hot dogs, salad and chips.  It will be simple meal I can make in time for the game after work.

I hope you enjoy the game and have a great week.  I will joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. Stop by to see how others are enjoying the Summer.

4th of July 2011

There may not be many patriotic decorations but there are the colors.  Have you notice that most patriotic decorations are not made in the USA?

I am joining The Tablescaper at for Seasonal Sundays.
Join me each Sunday for my weekly party

I found the table cloth at one of my favorite thrift shops. It doesn't have a lable. I love how it fits my table perfectly. I used the same center piece as my watermelon table. As I am posting this, I realized I forgot the napkins.

 The Fiesta colors are in Scarlet, White, and Cobalt. I used the Homer Laughlin diner luncheon plate.

 I love the detail on the tray that is  holding my new Fiesta rice/dessert bowls.  It was found as the same thrift store as the table cloth.

Have a fun, happy and safe 4th of July.  Thank you for stopping by.
