Go Bold for Summer!

I thought I would celebrate the start of summer by sharing a tablescape from my mom, Mary. Her table includes post-86 Fiesta, vintage Fiesta, and Homer Laughlin Ovenserve. The table cloth is vintage, an estate sale find. The colors are so bright on this cloth, it just makes you happy to look at it. One of the highlights of the table is the vintage Fiesta relish tray in the center of the table. Relish trays are coveted items among collectors.

The small Fiesta heart bowls are available at independent retailers. Love the shape. HLC also makes larger heart bowls available at many retailers, such as Dillards.

The small green ramekin is ovenserve. It is a vintage HLC piece. The outside of the ramekin has an embossed floral design on it that can be seen in later pictures.

The glassware is Fiesta. They can be found with various colors of stripes, but this striping is my favorite.

This item is called the ice lip pitcher. It might be used for iced tea.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

You mess with the bull, you get the horns! Now, bring on the margaritas!

Vintage and post-86 Fiesta were used on the this table. I found the decorations on the napkins at a garage sale. The colors were bold and matched perfectly.

Fiesta colors used on this table include:
Vintage Chartreuse
Vintage Red

The tablecloth was found in Topeka, KS at an antique store on a recent dishing trip.

The glasses came from a thrift store. I heard they were once sold at The Dollar Store, but I am not sure.

The red stripe vase was a Homer Laughlin China Collectors Club exclusive.

The pattern on the tablecloth is amazing. The colors are so vibrant, and there was no staining.
