Fiesta Ware Thanksgiving Table Setting

I played around with our Fiesta Ware a bit today, to see how it would look on my new orange tablecloth.  I wanted to do a Thanksgiving table set-up and get some good pictures on a nice, sunny day. 

We have all of the vintage Fiesta colors, but I tried to use the darker, fall-ish colors this time. 
I love how shiny this red/orange gravy boat is.  It's one of my favorite pieces. 
How many people do you have at your Thanksgiving table?  There will be nine of us here. Do you set up any special dishes for your Thanksgiving meal?  Tell us about it.

Oh, that is beautiful!! I have been obsessing over buying some Fiestaware lately...So, seeing your table is not doing me any favors! :-) Looks like you have a really beautiful set--and a beautiful table all ready for Thanksgiving!

That's just gorgeous! Nice work!!! This year we are having a total of 8 at our house. In years past we've had as many as 12 or 13, but this year is middle of the road & perfect.

We are trying our hand at 2 of the pies posted by Pioneer Woman last week on her site. Hope they turn out even 1/2 as good as they look!! :)

What a beautiful table you have set up for your Thanksgiving. We always travel to my inlaws so I never get to host :(

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm glad you liked the cookie bouquet. Also nice to know I'm not the only one that almost faints when I see the prices they go for in stores.

Love your table settings and your buffet!! And the orange gravy boat caught my attention before you mentioned how shiny it is! :) Love. I don't have the patience to collect Fiesta Ware the fun way by going to antique stores and such, so I bought 6 full place settings at Macy*s hoping to maybe add to them here and there. Not as authentic as yours, but colorful anyway. For Thanksgiving and Christmas we use my husband's great Aunt Mae's Apple pattern Franciscan Ware dishes from forever ago! She's no longer with us, and he's eaten off of them his whole life, so they have a special place in his heart.

LOVE your fiesta ware table setting! It looks great! Thanks for linking it up to Thrilling Thursday @ Paisley Passions :)

I love all the pieces. Don't you think "the hunt" is almost as much fun as having the pieces? I have just a few pieces, and love the vivid colors. You have a real knack for mixing and matching as you put the settings together.
Happy Thanks.

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

I love Fiesta Ware, too, and yours looks beautiful. I love all those colors for Thanksgiving. A friend of mine just got married and she registered for all the various pieces. Made me wish I could register again and ask for that this time instead of the fancy china I asked for and have never really used. Turns out we're not really fancy china people. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving!!

We will do the family Thanksgiving on Saturday, at my husband's cousin's, this year expecting anywhere from 20-30.

Your new orange tablecloth is perfect for your wonderful mix of Fiesta Ware. There were nine of us this year, too. A nice workable number. My sister-in-love has a new home, her dream home, and we had Thanksgiving at her house this year for the first time. I'm so excited for her to be able to establish new traditions in her precious jewel box of a home. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

I love Fiestaware!

Betsy said...

Is that your husband hiding behind what looks like a cloth in the mirror reflection? Too funny;-) Actually, I was paying too much attention to your gorgeous Fiesta Ware. I've always loved the vibrant colors of these beautiful pieces. Your table looks so festive. I noticed too, the chip in the pink cup. Bloop, bloop!! This is great, thank you so much for sharing and for visiting my bloop-up.
Happy New Year

Love your fiesta ware! I have my grandmothers from the late 1940's and I have some recent pieces. Your colors are so vibrant and beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

I just found your blog through DIYHomeStagingTips. Just read this post on Fiestaware. Great photos! I like the orange gravy boat, too. I'm going to have fun digging around the blog more. Glad to "meet" you!

I love fiestaware as well and my husband does as well. We got married in Savannah GA on NYE last year and one of our honeymoon purchases were a couple of vintage pieces. I love the original colors as well but your images really make me appreciate some of the muted greens, etc. more than before. Enjoy your holiday - we will have my husband's two teen daughters with us and I look forward to using our red gravy boat and other fiestaware pieces!
