Vintage Colors For Christmas on The Little Round Table

Oh my ...... we are getting so close, just time for a few more tablescapes
for this holiday season.  Today's tablescape for Marty's weekly party
Tabletop Tuesday over at A Stroll Through Life is all about vintage things
appropriate for Vintage Thingies Thursday over at Coloradolady too!

Classic European holiday motifs adorn the tablecloth topped with vintage Fiesta dinnerware in Yellow, Green and Red. That classic "orange" Fiesta is actually called Red. :-) The place setting consists of a dinner plate, luncheon plate, salad plate and bread/butter plate. Yellow tripod candle holders, disc pitcher and coffee pot are also shown.

The two nested bowls between the disc pitcher and the coffee pot are the only contemporary Fiesta in these pictures.  They are in the 75th Anniversary color Marigold and mimic the look and feel of the nested vintage Fiesta mixing bowls.  These are the two smallest, while three larger nested bowls comprise the "Baking Bowls."  2011 will bring the anniversary color into its full release with the long awaited place settings and accessory pieces.

The green glassware in vintage depression glass, goblets are from Pfaltzgraff,
flatware is contemporary in a twisted rope pattern, napkins from Home Goods.

Pfaltzgraff goblets above and vintage depression glass below.

Vintage Green Fiesta sweets compote (aka comport, both of which
are correct in naming this piece)

Iconic Fiesta disc pitcher (aka disk pitcher, again both of which or correct)

Happy holidays to all of you, I do hope you'll stop back later in the week for Tablescape Thursday's offering here on The Little Round Table and again Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for two additional tablescapes to top off this festive holiday season.


  1. Oh I love it. Your snowmen, angels and the little trees and then all the gorgeous dishes and other accessories. You always amaze me. I truly think this is perfect.

    Would you please link up again, Mr. Linky was being a real stinker and so it deleted everyone when I tried to correct it. Hugs, Marty

  2. Hi Candy, Your tablescapes are ALWAYS PURE PERFECTION... I do have a favorite thing here and that is the vintage Homer Laughlin mushrooms and pitcher... LOVE THEM, Oh my Ebay here I come!!!
    Merry Christmas to you,
    Hugs, Donna

    Greetings, Johanna

  6. The colors on this cloth are just so crisp! It's the perfect background for the vintage colors. I love the woodland aspect of the 'scape...the little deer are just too cute!

  7. Your use and combination of colors is truely is like a wonderland of design. Just breath-taking. Merry Christmas.

  8. What a fun mixture of colors and mushrooms and snowmen and carolors. I always love your tablecloths -- and I especially love that pretty pitcher.

  9. Another beautiful table, Love, love that tablecloth too! Can you tell me where you got the flatware, that is beautiful too! I sure wish I had been INTO tablescaping before Pfaltzgraff went out of business!!!! I am sending VERY Merry Christmas wishes to you!!!! XO, Pinky

  10. Thank you all for coming by to visit my tablescape!

    Just a note to Donna, the pitcher is Homer Laughlin, but the mushrooms are from an unknown maker!

    Pinky, the flatware is called Twisted Rope and I bought it on the internet. Let me see if I can find you a link. The name is "Royal Rope flatware", just enter that into Google and search away. I spent under $20 for each of the 4 sets I ordered.

    Pinky! Do not despair, Pfaltzgraff is online with all kinds of deals.


  11. Candy, You set such a fun Christmas table. So different and festive using creative colors and non traditional elements. I just LOVE it!!!!! The tablecloth is fabulous and I can see where your inspiration came from.

    I'm so happy that you show your whole kitchen. I am amazed with all of your decor! I could be very creative in a kitchen like that!
    Blessings to you and all you love at Christmas!
