Winter Magnolia for a New Year

 This table features a beautiful table cloth with magnolias and shades of green, gray and mustard yellow.
 

The dishes are vintage Fiesta in forest green, vintage gray, Post-86 gray, Post-86 white, and vintage harlequin in forest. There is also one cup and saucer that is sort of an orphan, from another dish maker, but I was running low on cups and saucers. Note to self: new year's resolution will be acquire more forest cups and saucers.


The creamer and sugar are harlequin.


Silver chargers were placed under the dishes.



I used a coffee pot sans lid for the centerpiece and just put greens in it instead of flowers.


Simple white napkins with silver napkin ring allow the table cloth to shine.
 

The teapot is Post-86 Fiesta in gray.


The juice pitcher is Post-86 gray, one of the under-rated colors as it is a good neutral that blends well with other colors.


I am sharing at Between Naps on the Porch.

Nice! You're right, the gray looks great with the green and would go with a lot of other Fiesta colors.

Would not have thought to mix in the green. The tablecloth was great inspiration. Looks great

Would not have thought to add in the green with the cream and grey. The table cloth was the perfect inspiration. Looks great
