Fall with some blue

The inspiration for this table was the napkin, again. It was a thrift store find.  Usually when I find something I really like, I can see the table.  When I see something, the first thought that goes thru my mind is what Fiesta colors will match it.  If I don't feel/see it, I won't buy it.  I'm sure it the same for some of you with the dishes/ items you already have.

The Fiesta colors are Periwinkle, Marigold, Chocolate and Ivory.  My friend gave me the scatters. The ice tea goblets were a wedding a gift. 

 
 
The centerpiece vase/ candle holder was a clearance purchase from Kirklands.  The small covered dish is Franciscan.  It has marked with made in the USA.  I know the picture is not clear but is wheat on the front.
 

 
 
The napkin rings were a Goodwill.  They were still in the package.
 

I will be linking up with Marty at A Stroll thru Life for Table Top Tuesday and Kathleen for Let's Dish.

Have a great week!

  5. I really like the periwinkle blue in the Fiesta Ware. First time that I've seen it. A wonderfully welcoming tablescape design. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

    1. Hi again! Periwinkle is a retired color. It had first come out in the 80's. It is not a favorite of many Fiesta collectors but like all colors I can fit it in somehow. Thanks for the visit.

  6. I have to tell you that every time I see Fiestaware I think of you. I recently saw a huge collection at an antique show that you would have loved. It's always fun seeing how you use yours.

  7. I am SO with you on the "feeling" something part before buying it!!! I know a lot of people (my Mom drives me nuts with this!) buy things just because they're on sale or just because they're pretty. If you can't FEEL its future, though, what's the point? I have to bond with items before I dole out the $$$. My favorite tactic if I'm not sure about something is to sit in the store aisle with the item on my head (when possible). It's as if through osmosis I am able to become one with it. Weird...yes. But it works for me! These napkins really work beautifully with the dishes you chose. They are spot on!!! Good job!
