PAPRIKA + Poppies = Pizazz!

I'm joining Susan over at Between Naps On The Porch for her weekly
tablescaping party.  Come join in on the fun!

The newest Fiesta color Paprika is now in production and has been released to retailers.
Mixed reviews from some collectors, but I'm very pleased with this new addition to the
color lineup.  It will be a great color to add to the Fall hues, but also works really well
when added to a summery tablescape.

Here it is by itself.

And shown with other color choices, as I began to come up with a combination
for my first tablescape incorporating Paprika.

Shown with different combintations of Persimmon, Chocolate, Sunflower,
Chartreuse, Lemongrass, Tangerine  and Shamrock.

I think they all play together nicely, but for this particular vintage tablecloth,
I chose the combination below. Paprika dinner plate, Chartreuse luncheon plate,
Tangerine salad plate and the berry bowl in Sunflower.

I chose to skip the flower vase and napkins for this tablescape so that I could highlight
the color combination itself.  Shown with glassware from Target, flatware from Home Goods.
The tablecloth is vintage with large "Paprika" hued poppies as its main design element.

I'm really liking the new color and look forward to incorporating it in future tablescapes.
What's your take on this new color?
Thanks for coming by for another Tablescape Thursday!

  2. Candy-you're killing me! I wasn't too sure about the Paprika, but now I'm sold. I think it will be great for any season in any combination. You're the greatest-keep on inspiring me!

  3. Lovin' that tablecloth. I have a lot of them, but none like that one! Take care of it, and hopefully we will see it again! Have a great week! Sandi

  4. Your fiestaware all plays so great together and I love using color on a table and this says COLOR! Love the table! Joni

  5. I really love your collection! I have enjoyed them for a few weeks now and cant wait to see the next set! Fab color choices this week!!!

  6. I love the new color! Added to the other colors, it adds some spice. You sure know how to put the dishes together to create a beautiful table setting.

  7. love the colorful dishes- and your kitchen!! WOW

  8. Oh yes, I can imagine this new color very good for sommer and fall settings. Such a bright and colorful color and you made a very pretty tablesetting with it.
    Greetings, Johanna

  9. I really like the new color! Are collectors worried about how it will coordinate with other colors? You have done a fabulous job! Linda

  10. This color is fantastic! I love the combinations that you put together. Your collection of Fiesta is amazing. It must be so much fun to mix and match everything. Again, I must say that vintage tablecloth is so pretty. You have a lovely collection!

  11. Candy, thank you for showing us the new paprika color! You have certainly shown it off beautifully with the gorgeous tablecloth and other Fiesta pieces. Very inviting, and those glasses add to the fun!

  12. love,love, love the color!! i think it would nice with the blues too!, thank you!

  13. WOW! I LOVE all the Fiesta pieces together {or by themselves}...everything is so bright and colorful! Your table is friendly and inviting, and of course, I always love peeking into your amazing kitchen!!! This is all perfect for summer. Thanks so much for sharing!

  14. Your fiestaware looks so pretty especially with the backdrop of your fabulous kitchen. The tablecloth is just beautiful.

  15. Beautiful as always! When my nephew and his wife married a few years ago, she chose Fiestaware and opted not to have a formal china pattern on the bridal registry.

    She still loves it, but wants to start a collection of a different color. They've recently moved to a new house (well, an 80s house they've comepletely remodeled) and she thinks her new kitchen calls for a warmer color. I'm not sure if she said she wants paprika or tangerine. I'll send her to have a look at your wonderful blog for ideas and inspiration!

    Have a great weekend!

  16. You really did a great job putting everything together. I really like your dishes. Have a nice weekend, Mary

  17. I love being an "enabler" .... when it comes to Fiesta at least! This new Paprika is a color I can work with in so many ways.

    Bill - your niece will be most welcome and not have to look far on my blog to find Fiesta! LOL

    Donna ... Petticoat - Great minds must think alike, look to next week's Tablescape Thursday to see Paprika paired with some blues!

    See you all again soon,


  18. I absolutely LOVE this! Orange is my theme color this year, and I have given myself permission to enjoy every hue of it. This color is simply beautiful IMO, and your pairings are lovely.

    I will be back next time to see the paprika and blue.

  19. I'm all in favor of the new color. I don't have any Fiesta Ware, but would love to have a cabinet full. I fondly remember my aunt's kitchen filled with these colorful dishes. ~ Sarah

  20. Thanks Debbie and Sarah! I'm loving this new color and can see it appearing again very soon here on The Little Round tomorrow!

    Tune in to see it with some "blues".


  21. Hi, I am about to be a first time buyer of Fiesta and stumbled upon your blog as I was looking for ideas on color combo's. All I can say is WOW, what a fantastic site and thank you for totally convincing me I will love Fiesta.

    After checking out your tablescapes, I am in love with the Paprika, Chartreuse, Tangererine and Sunflower combo, so my decision was made easy by you thanks.

    I will definitely be back repeatedly for inspiration!

  22. Thanks Sarah, so happy you will become one of the Fiesta converts!

    Enjoy your new dishes. :-)



Thank you for your lovely comments.
