An array of tables

I haven't been able to post but I am trying to view and comment on all your beautiful posts. I have been able to set a few tables that I want to share.

This table was inspired by the tea towel which I received from another Fiesta collector during a towel swap. I used Fiesta in Flamingo, Chocolate, Lemongrass and Chartreuse.  The platter that the Chocolate pitcher is sitting on is Harlequin also by the makers of Fiesta.

I want some Fiesta heart bowls to go with this next table.  I found the cloth at my favorite thrift shop. I found out that it was made in Austria.  I used Marigold, Cobalt and Scarlet.

This next one was a pre-Valentine's Day table.  Once again, the cloth was found at the thrift store. I used Flamingo, White and Gray.

This was the table I set for Mardi Gras.  It was on the table for a day since the next day was Valentine's Day. I used green chargers and Fiesta in Plum, vintage yellow and Marigold.
I will try to post my Valentine's Day table on the next round along with one that was inspired by a gift from a friend.

Thanks for stopping by.

Marigold Tureen

I am so excited.  I was able to purchase the Fiesta soup tureen thanks to my wonderful aunt.  I did not think I would ever have this piece.

Yes I am using is also.  I made tortellini sausage soup.  In this picture it looks like there isn't any soup though.

 Here it sits in it new home.  Seeing my glass cake stand makes me wish HLC would make a Fiesta cake stand.

I used it again a few days later with Meatball and Spaghetti Stoup (Rachael Ray recipe).

I had so much fun playing with my dishes and cooking this past week.
It has been crazy busy and life has been turned upside down. since I started working on this post. I've still managed to set a nice table when we have eaten at home.  I will try to post those as well soon.
