Anniversary Fiesta

2011 is a special year for collectors of Fiesta dinnerware. Our beloved dishes are celebrating their 75th anniversary! The Homer Laughlin China Collectors Association, aka the HLCCA, is marking this birthday with a range of activities, including special coverage in The Dish magazine. The summer edition of this publication features a fiesta of Mexican-themed tablescapes by members. I was thrilled to be able to contribute this table for the party.

On this tabletop, Riviera dinnerware meets the Fiesta promotional casserole, a Kitchen Kraft pie plate, Rainbow Depression glass, a vintage tablecloth from my friend Kathy, flatware from the Flatware Fairy and contemporary napkins. This tablecloth was also used for a tribute to Toastmaster go-along pottery.

Thank you, Elaine, for organizing this wonderful article!

  2. Daphne, this table is so bright and cheerful, love how you caught the sun streaming in on the table. Love the yellow glassware, so perfect for this set-up. Job well done!


  3. It is so great to see all the different angles we couldn't fit into the DISH! Excellent!
