Under the Sea in Marigold

I'm working on a little Tabletop side project, and I need to give these marigold fish their very own post! I hope you enjoy revisiting this table from September~

I've been waiting to make this marigold/turquoise/pink tabletop for a very long time. The individual fish-shaped casseroles are vintage Chicken of the Sea premiums. It's challening to find a set in four colors with the metal holders...hence the wait! I was thrilled to add this set to my pottery collection earlier this summer.

This tabletop is less elaborate than the others, but I wanted to keep the emphasis on the individual casseroles. The Harlequin relish tray and candleholders make a strong centerpiece. The relish tray rests on a Crate & Barrel ruffled cake server. This piece has chipped over the years, but I still enjoy it.

Other items on this table include Libbey striped glasses, Oneida Deauville flatware, Harlequin plates, Chicken of the Sea salt & pepper shakers and Ikea napkins.

This tablecloth also comes in a lilac/chartreuse and pink/gray versions. Please do post a comment if you have seen this cloth in another colorway or have any information about the manufacturer.

  1. Perfection in its simplicity. Love those little fish casseroles. Glad you found one of each color. ~ Sarah

  2. I love the fish casseroles and S&P! Don't you miss that companies don't give away items like this any more? So much fun:@)
