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.

    1. Thank you Pam. I thought of you the other day when I was playing/moving all my tablecloths around. I found a cedar chest at the same thrift store where I purchased some of these cloths. Thank you for stopping by.

  5. Monica, WOW, you have been busy! It is very very hard to read and comment on all the blogs we read isn't it! I am impressed with all you have done. Mardi Gras and Valentine's so close together is hard. I have never decorated for Mardi Gras or St Patrick's Day but viewing all the decorating on blogland it is hard to escape getting interested.

    I really enjoyed all your tablecloths. I especially like the gray, white and coral one. Is that an iris flower?

    1. Thank you Bonnie! I hope to get my St. Patrick's table up this week. I'm not sure about the flower but it does look like an iris.

  6. Hi Monica,
    I love Fiesta ware but don't have alot of it. My sweet friend, Amanda found a aqua pitcher just like yours at a thrift store for $1.50 and gave it to me. It isn't vintage, but still love it! I hoped over from Michele's blog @ The Finch Nest. She is such a sweetheart and the gift you sent her was such a kind and generous thing to do. Happy to be following you.
    hugs,
    Jann

    1. Thank you for stopping by. It means a lot to me too. I remember you mentioning you had some Fiesta at one point. I've been away for a bit as there has been a lot going on. Now I'm fighting a sinus infection and bronchitis.

  9. Monica, your array of tables is so much fun to view. Your fiesta is a very versatile way to create lovely tablescapes. When I see fiesta I think of my Mother's kithchen with turquoise and yellow curtains and the wonderful colors of the fiesta ware we used. Do you go to Canton and visit the place that sells Fiesta for I love all the great pieces there. Love your gorgeous collection of tablecloths especially the one with the blue and red with the cute couple. Thanks for visiting my blog and your sweet comments. It is fun to visit with a fellow Texan!

    1. Thank you. Fiesta does bring back a lot of memories.
      I am far from Canton which may be a good thing. LOL. I am in FAR west Texas on the New Mexico border. I am closer to Phoenix than I am to Dallas or Houston.
      Thank you for stopping by and sorry for the late response. I've been sick and haven't been able to play with my dishes.
