The next tablescape memory features a vintage Vera from the 1960's or 70's in bold colors that was most difficult to tame until chocolate Fiesta was introduced. I presented a placesetting from this table in my Tabletop Time exhibit at the 2009 HLCCA conference.
The chocolate Fiesta square plates are joined by chocolate pyramid candle holders, a persimmon presentation bowl, tangerine lunch plates, sunflower and persimmon after dinner cups and saucers, the same amber glasses, vintage Bakelite flatware and chocolate napkins in Pottery Barn leaf napkin rings. The napkin rings were a gift from a good friend who CANNOT understand my tabletop obsession, but feeds it none the less...a true friend indeed.
