Warm and Sunny Fiestaware Tablescape


As with all my tablescapes, the cloth dictates the settings. I choose my tablecloth first and then choose the dishes. This one was no exception. I'm so excited by the warm and sunny colors!

This beautiful vintage tablecloth was one of my gifts from last year's Secret Santa exchange at The Vintage Tablecloth Lovers Club. Bee Cee had my name and she choose 2 gorgeous tablecloths. I'm not sure of the maker of this one, but it has polka-dots so it's the tops in my book! 

 The flowers are great. They could be anything from dahlia, to zinnia, to chrysanthemums. I love the fern that are mixed in the bouquet. Oh and that oooooo border! Makes me want to say Oooooo!

Isn't she a beauty? I love that the yellows are orange are soft and almost creamy. It has a terrific rich brown too. 

You would think this tablecloth was made persimmons and yellow Fiestaware in mind. But this Fiestaware is Post 86 and the tablecloth is much older. 

I'm thinking that I need to get a few settings of chocolate Fiesta to add to this tablescape for fall!

Thanks Bee Cee! I absolutely love my tablecloth!

I'm participating in Table Top Tuesdays again. So please stop over to see everyone's tables!
