Fiesta Blues

I am going to join Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish.  Be sure to visit and those that link to see what the table talk of the day is.
I was inspired by another Fiesta collector, Candy @ The Little Round Table, to recreate this table.  She was trying to redeem the Periwinkle color as some collectors do not like it have an alternate name for it. 

I've used these dishes with different place mats and napkins.  The Fiesta colors are Periwinkle and Cobalt.

The goblets were given to me by my aunt who got me started setting a pretty table. The other glassess were a Tuesday Morning find years ago with my mom. 
This one of my favorite Fiesta bowls. 

The cut glass bowl was my moms and the vase filler marbles were a perfect match to the table.  The idea for putting the votive holders on the Fiesta candle holders came from another Fiesta collector.

Here are some details on what's on the table.

Thanks for stopping! Have a good rest of the week.


  1. I think you did a great job incorporating periwinkle into a lovely setting.

  2. Hard to believe they wouldn't like that color.. It's absolutely fabulous. A chameleon that can take on so many different personalities. Love the centerpiece and the glasses from your mom are just perfect! have a great week. xo marlis

  3. Love all of your glassware and those wonderful napkins. What a nice aunt to help with your collection!! Thanks for sharing the "blues"!!

  4. Another name for it, too funny!
    Pretty table, I love blue so I would welcome those dishes!Thanks for linking to Let's Dish!

  5. It's amazing how many different looks can be gotten with Fiestaware. How clever of you to use the marbles as a complement to all the other elements on your table.

  6. I think this is one of your best tables, yet, Monica. You did redeem peri"stinkle!" I love the marbles, too.

  7. OK...I don't get it. I think periwinkle is a beautiful color. The way you've paired it up with a darker cobalt makes it even prettier. Is it something about the fact that it isn't a really bright color like a lot of the Fiestaware I see around? This is a color that is unusual and therefore desirable in my book! I can remember wearing a pair of periwinkle shoes almost into the ground before letting them go! LOVE that color! I think it would pair nicely with a deep gray, too!!!

  8. There is nothing quite like a blue and white table...very nicely done, Monica!

  9. Thank you. Some colors by themselves don't appeal to some but pair them up with something else and it works. Thank you all again for stopping by. Have a great week.

  10. I am always amazed at how you can make so many beautiful tablescapes with just using fiesta dishes. Some elegant., festive ,whimsical,, colorful just a few. I very seldom run into any fiesta although many years ago I had a set of different colors but sold them to a dealer when they became popular.

  11. I'm one of those people who thinks that a cupboard full of fiesta is like a cupboard of creativity. There is just no end to the things you can do. I hadn't heard that folks didn't like the periwinkle. I love it on you table, and you proved that it's a keeper! I love the idea of the marbles on the table, too.


I would love to hear what you think of my dishes. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you come back to visit again soon.
