DIY Tea Cup Candles

DIY Tea Cup Candles

There’s nothing quite as homey as the low, flickering light and heady aroma of a burning candle.  Especially when it’s a homemade candle, hand-poured into a Fiesta® Tea Cup.

This charming craft is super simple to make and the results are so beautiful you won’t want to stop with one batch. Nor should you!  Try coming up with intriguing scent and color combos by pairing a luscious fragrance with a complementary Fiesta® hue.  For instance, fill a Fiesta Tea Cup in Lemongrass with a tropical coconut lime scent.  A Paprika cup would be the perfect vessel for a caramel apple candle.  

To get started on this candle-making mission you will need the following:

3 Fiesta Tea Cups

1 lb. soy wax flakes (microwavable)

3 candle wicks with metal base

1.5 oz. candle scent (about 0.5 oz. per candle)

1 microwaveable mixing container such as a measuring cup

Hot glue gun

Thermometer 

Tea Cup Candles Ingredients

First, thoroughly wash and dry your Fiesta Tea Cups.  Adhere the candle wick to the bottom of the cup with a dab of hot glue.  You can also use some melted wax to adhere.

Tea Cup Candles Wicks

Next, heat the soy wax in your microwave for 3 to 4 minutes, until the wax reaches a temperature of about 170°.  When the wax has cooled slightly (to about 160°) add candle fragrance.  

Pour the mixture into your tea cups. Gently adjust the wick so it is centered, using two pens to help prop it up.  

Tea Cup Candles Pouring

Let the candles sit until the wax is cooled and solid. 

Tea Cup Candles Setting

Trim wick down to about ¼”. 

If you can help it, allow the candles to cure for several days before burning to allow for the best scent throw.

Setting the Easter Table

Setting the Easter Table

There’s nothing quite like the bright pops of color that spring up after a long, dreary winter.  So to celebrate Spring, we’ve decked the halls with fresh greens and sunny citrus hues which lend a decidedly cheerful note to our Easter festivities.  

Fiesta Spring Table

Elevate the Easter table with stacks of vivid dishes, mixing and matching until each setting looks like a basket of colorful eggs.  A beautifully decorated egg nested atop green paper grass is the perfect topper when nestled in our Bouillon Bowl.

Don’t forget the flatware!  We turned ours into an Easter Bunny staple- a fresh garden carrot.  Simply wrap up a set of green plastic utensils in an orange napkin.  Fasten closed with a length of coordinating color ribbon. 

Fiesta Bowl Nests

Take the nest concept and run with it!  Alternate the size and color of the nests’ bowls and display them down the center of the dinner table.  Perch a plastic or hardboiled egg on top. 

Easter Egg Tree

For a sweet centerpiece, top a Fiesta® Baking Tray with green grass and whimsical Easter characters like fuzzy chicks and snow white bunnies.  In the center of the tray place a potted Easter egg tree assembled by gluing varying sizes of decorated eggs to a foam cone.  Plant the tree in a gussied up terra cotta pot. 

Fiesta Easter Shakers

These adorable little creatures are sure to bring a smile to your guests’ faces!  Start with a Fiesta® Salt or Pepper Shaker in Sunflower for a chick or White for a bunny.  

For the chick, draw on two black dots for eyes using acrylic paint or a permanent marker.  Cut a small diamond shape out of orange paper and fold in half.  Affix the paper beak to your Sunflower Shaker with a dab of glue or some double-sided tape.  For the chick’s feet, cut two triangles from the orange paper and adhere.  

To create the bunny, cut out a tiny pink rounded triangle for the nose and adhere to the White Shaker with a dab of glue. Using either acrylic paint or a permanent marker, draw on two black dots for eyes and small mouth stemming from the nose.  

To make his furry ears, poke two white pipe cleaners through separate holes in the top of the shaker, placing one on the far right and one on the far left.  Pull the cleaner through the shaker until the end pokes through the bottom hole.  Knot the pipe cleaner and pull back up through the top of the shaker. 

Do this for both pipe cleaners and then carefully roll each downward, forming a spiraling circle.  Now gently pinch the circles, molding into a pointed ear shape.  

A bit of ribbon adds the final touch: a pastel bow tie. 

Lollipop Flower

The final hand-made item in our Easter celebration is a simpler take on our Lollipop Topiary.  For this version, we did away with the tree’s wooden trunk and instead placed the ball of lollipops straight in our oh-so-versatile Hostess Bowl.  To make the flower of pops, simply pierce a 5” to 6” foam ball with the stick end of a lollipop.  Do this for all 200 (or so) lollipops until the entire ball is covered.

Fresh Cut Picnic

After months of teeth chattering weather, trudging through mountains of snow just to get from your front door to your mailbox, and putting on every article of clothing you own to brave the elements, the time is finally here: spring has sprung! With the birds starting to chirp, and flowers preparing to bloom, we figured this was cause for celebration, and what better way to celebrate this colorful season than with a picnic outside- with our colorful dishes of course!

So get your baskets and blankets ready because without further ado, we present our fresh cut palette; the ideal color combination for the change in weather, with a few key items you’ll need during your picnic in the park:

FRESH CUT

1. Tangerine Saucer– When you’re picnicking, most meal time rules go out the window. You’re sitting outside in the grass, your shoes are off, and your cup and saucer are NOT matching! Okay, maybe that last one is a stretch as far as dinner guidelines go, but we thought that with such an informal meal, we could focus more on the mixing and less on the matching.

sauce

2. Lemongrass Square Handled Tray– There’s nothing that gets us more excited for a meal outdoors than the picnic staple: finger sandwiches! And what better way to carry around your sammies than on our Square Handled Tray? Just make sure there’s room for desserts!

3. Shamrock Disc Pitcher– Disc Pitchers aren’t just for decoration anymore. On our first picnic of spring, we’re using it to cart along ice cold lemonade- our go to refreshment when playing in the sun as kids is still a favorite with us today! There’s something about that sugary, tangy mixture that begs to be enjoyed in the sunshine. You can also substitute Sage for Shamrock when the new colors hit the shelves in June.

pitch

4. Lapis Bistro Bowl– With the trees starting to turn green again, we’ve got leafy greens on the brain! Bring along a Bistro Bowl (Medium or Large, depending on the number of guests) and fill it to the brim with a delicious assortment of your favorite greens! Add ripe fruits to your salad to give it added texture and sweetness- and an extra pop of color.

5. Sunflower Cup– Who says teacups have to be for tea? Go fancy on your picnic with a teacup to hold all of that sweet lemonade in. Mix it with the Tangerine Saucer to give an eclectic spin to the old classic. Just remember, pinkies out!

cups

6. Plum Appetizer Plate– No need for oversized dinner plates when your main dish is finger foods. Keep the bulky dishes at home and opt for something smaller. The Appetizer Plates are the perfect choice for a lighter load to carry, and to echo the quaintness of the event.

7. Poppy Medium Vase– No picnic is complete without freshly picked flowers (perfect for the Fresh Cut Palette!). Find a diverse mix of colors to keep your picnic looking bright and cheery- from blooming bud to Bistro Bowl!

Our final bit of advice for your Fresh Cut picnic is to bring extras of everything, because once others see your spread, they won’t be able to resist joining in!

Petite Pies

Petite Pie Series Main

The Fiesta® Small Pie Baker is as cute as a button with its ruffled edge and tiny footprint.  Like most things in miniature, it recalls all of the important design features of its bigger counterpart (fluted edge, concentric rings, gently sloping sides) scaled down to a diminutive size.   

Yet, despite its smaller scale, the Small Pie Baker isn’t exactly tiny.  It has a hearty capacity that can serve up a lumberjack-filling portion of pie without flinching.  So, just how much foodstuff can be stuffed in these dainty dishes?  Certainly more than a muffin’s worth but not quite half a pie…or is it?

That’s what we set out to uncover in our Petite Pie Series.  How does a standard pie recipe measure up (or down we should say) to our Small Pie Bakers?  And what else can we fill our bakers with beyond standard blue ribbon fare?  Fiesta Pie Stack

Our most burning question in this gastronomic investigation was simple:  how do we break down a classic pie crust recipe to fit the Small Pie Baker?  We found our answer in the form of Mini Mixed Berry Pies and it was just as simple as we had hoped.  One standard pie recipe will divide quite nicely into four of our Small Pie Bakers.  

Assembling Fiesta Pie

While we can’t be absolutely certain, we are fairly confident that most classic pie recipes will also make four petite pies in our Small Pie Bakers.  To help ensure these results, you can use our pie crust recipe for any pie calling for pâte brisée (a standard shortcrust pastry).  As far as fillings go, just aim for about ¾ of a cup to one full cup of filling per Small Pie Baker depending on the recipe.

For the crust
  1. 2.5 cups all-purpouse flour
  2. 2 tablespoons sugar
  3. ½ teaspoon salt
  4. 1 cup butter, cut into ½ inch cubes
  5. 6-8 tablespoons ice water
For the filling
  1. 3 cups blueberries (about 17 oz.)
  2. 2 cups raspberries (about 10 oz.)
  3. 1 cup blackberries (about 6 oz.)
  4. 2/3 cup sugar
  5. 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  6. 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  7. zest of 1 lemon
For the egg wash
  1. 1 egg
  2. 1 teaspoon water
To make the crust
  1. In a bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or two forks until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  2. Alternately, blend dry ingredients in a food processor. Add butter and pulse until a coarse meal is formed.
  3. Add 6 tablespoons of ice water and stir (or pulse) until a crumbly dough forms. Dough should hold together when squeezed. If it does not, add the remaining ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time until dough holds together when squeezed.
  4. Turn mixture out onto a lightly floured surface and press together until dough forms a ball. Divide in half, shaping each portion into a disc. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and chill in the refridgerator for at least 2 hours.
To make the filling
  1. Toss berries together in a medium bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, cornstarch, and lemon zest. Add in the lemon juice and stir until a paste forms.
  3. Add the lemon sugar paste to the berries and gently toss to combine. Set aside.
To make the egg wash
  1. Beat together the egg and water in a small bowl.
To assemble
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Have ready four Fiesta® Small Pie Bakers.
  2. Remove one disc of pie dough from the refridgerator and turn out onto a lightly floured surface.
  3. Roll out dough to an 1/8” thickness.
  4. Place a pie baker top down on the dough and trace around it with a pairing knife making a circle slightly larger than the baker.
  5. Repeat to make four dough rounds and press each into a small pie baker.
  6. Remove the other disc of pie dough from the refridgerator and turn out onto a lightly flour surface.
  7. Roll out to an 1/8” thickness.
  8. For a lattice top crust, cut thin strips of dough using a pastry cutter or a pizza cutter.
  9. Run the cutter vertically through the dough every ¼”, then cut the dough horizontally in half.
  10. Add the berry mixture to the pie bakers, dividing evenly between all four (about ¾ cup filling each).
  11. Begin your lattice crust by laying about 6 strips of dough horizontially across the baker placing longer pieces in the center and shorter pieces towards the outer rim.
  12. Fold back every other strip. Add one strip of dough, vertically, pressing as close to the side edge as possible.
  13. Bring the horizontal strips back in place and fold back the remaining strips. Lay another strip vertically close to the first. Repeat this process, making sure to use the longer strips in the center, until the pie is covered.
  14. Roll up the excess dough from the bottom crust and tuck in the ends of the lattice strips.
  15. Do this with all four pies then lightly brush each crust with the egg wash.
  16. Cover the edges of the pies with rings of aluminum foil and place the pies on a baking sheet.
  17. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes with the foil. Remove foil and bake for for another 10 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Setting the Easter Table

Easter brings a feeling of new beginnings and fresh starts. It is a time we like to welcome spring with homemade meals, mimosas at brunch, or crafting sessions while grazing on peeps and chocolate eggs. This year we are ready for a bit of everything – especially crafts. Here are three ways you can get inspired to create your own DIY Easter tablescape.

Setting the Easter Table1. Revive the art of decoupaging. Decoupage Easter eggs make the perfect centerpieces. This trend has been spotted from Martha Stewart’s blog to Women’s Day, but we are taking this DIY to the table: using it as the perfect floral conversation starter. All you need are your favorite printed-paper napkins, Mod Podge, flowers (real or fake), and eggs. We prefer this step-by-step from blogger Mom Spark to decorate your napkins. Once you have your finished eggs, cut a tiny hole in the tops and turn your creation into mini bouquets. Here we’ve kept the eggs in the original tray, adding an earthy tone to the table.

2. Use faux moss as a table runner. Whimsy and wonder are always fun to invite to the party – this grassy detail is a sure way to add that ethereal beauty. For our table we found notes of Turquoise, Lemongrass, Plum and Slate to fit the woodsy scene best. Sprinkle your favorite Easter candy in the moss to make the scene even more delicious. 

Moss table runners and more Easter ideas from Fiesta Dinnerware

3. Use Easter eggs as name placeholders. These chalkboard eggs can be found at most craft stores and make for adorable name cards for guests. We found these tiny clay pots to sit our name card eggs on – guests will adore the creative personalization, and kids can fill their pails with candy after the meal is over.

5 Ways to Get Creative with Fiesta’s New Colors

Why release one new color, when we can release two? That was our idea heading into this year’s International Home + Housewares Show 2015 as our Fiesta family proudly revealed Slate and Sage.

The two muted neutrals are a chic nod to the vintage styling so richly seen sprinkled in to today’s modern tablescape. They also playfully accent the bold colors that are so classically Fiesta, and loved by all of you (thank you by the way!).

Think of Sage as the plush greenery that so elegantly makes backyard flowers pop, while Slate’s moody hue highlights and livens virtually any other colorful palette it comes into contact with. We knew we couldn’t have one without the other; in fact, we don’t know how we ever lived without them at the dinner table.

So grab your current Fiesta favorites, and come with us on a journey to five new Fiesta worlds using the newest members of the family, Sage and Slate.

1. Mediterranean

5 Ways to Get Creative with Fiesta’s New Colors Fit for a Greek god or goddess, the Mediterranean tablescape uses the deep hue of Slate and the softness of Sage to accent notes of Turquoise, Lapis, White, and Tangerine to create a crisp and delicious vibe. Invite some cool succulents to the party for a truly on-trend lunch or dinner with friends.

2. Mid-century Modern

5 Ways to Get Creative with Fiesta’s New Colors

Don and Betty Draper would kill to be at this fondue soiree. In this tribute to late 50s and 60s sleek retro, we’ve used both Slate and Sage to accent Poppy, Turquoise, and Ivory in a quintessential scene straight out of “Mad Men.”

3. A New Fiesta Morning

5 Ways to Get Creative with Fiesta’s New Colors  Slate and Sage

Wake up your senses with a modernized retro diner vibe. This one is one of our favorites; using simply Slate, Sage and White, we sweetly offset metallic golds and pinks found in rose champagne, delicious raspberry donuts from one of our favorite eateries on the west coast, E.A.T. Marketplace, and gold flatware. Succulents are, again, a perfect guest to invite to the tablescape party.

4. Dakota Lodge

5 Ways to Get Creative with Fiesta’s New Colors Dreaming of sheer coziness during these past chilly nights? This chic cabin, breakfast-in-bed setting uses Slate and Sage Java Mugs to accent Cobalt, Sunflower, Plum, Paprika, and Poppy for the perfect lodge getaway. Don’t you just want to cuddle up with a good book and a hot cup of cocoa?

5. Sunny Daisy

5 Ways to Get Creative with Fiesta’s New Colors This cheery tablescape feels as fresh as that first bite of citrus in the morning. Here we’ve used the warmth of Sage and the depth of Slate to accent notes of bright Sunflower and crisp White. Enjoy your morning cup of joe or favorite tea with a must-read magazine like Domino to kickstart your productivity.

The color combos are limitless. Follow us on Pinterest and Facebook to see more color stories. What will you create?

Slate and Sage will be available to consumers when we begin shipping the new colors to retailers in mid to late June.

2015 New Colors

Mixed_5pc_Sage_Slate

 

FIESTA DINNERWARE’S NEW COLOR INTRODUCTION IS TWICE AS NICE

Homer Laughlin China Company Launches SLATE and SAGE at IHHS

Newell, West Virginia – (March 7, 2015) – The Homer Laughlin China Company™, manufacturer of the colorful and iconic Made in America Fiesta® Dinnerware, continues the tradition of launching its Fiesta color of the year during the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago, March 7-10, 2015, Booth S2003. However, this year there’s a catch because the company is announcing TWO colors of the year – Slate and Sage. (#Fiesta2015, #FiestaNewColor)

What’s the reason for a two-color introduction?

“Fiesta history has always leaned toward a bright fashionable palette. Today’s current updates in home fashion add rich Slate grey and accents of Sage green to provide a strong balance and complement to Fiesta’s bright color palette. The current throwback to mid-century modern and vintage styling includes a dominating accent of bright colors combined with cool grays and greens. In todays’ fashions, these color combinations do not exist without one another,” according to Rich Brinkman, VP of Sales and Marketing at Home Laughlin.

FiestaQuote.Sage

“Plus, the addition of Slate and Sage allow Fiesta enthusiasts to now have fun with multiple color palette: the more traditional Fiesta all-over-bright colors that you have been seeing in recent years and the new earthy influence intertwined with the bright colors,” Brinkman says.

Some examples of how Slate and Sage will work their way into the Fiesta color spectrum include the following:

“Slate is the quintessential neutral color, as it is thought of as classic and enduring. It will work with all of the other colors in Fiesta Dinnerware — everything from the most vibrant orange tones to the quietest pastel shades. And even though most people don’t think of green as a neutral, if we look to nature for inspiring color combinations (as we often do), think of all of the colors that work against green foliage similar to this lovely herbal Sage shade. The possibilities are endless and such fun to create!” says color expert Leatrice Eiseman, colorexpert.com and eisemancolorblog.wordpress.com.

Fiesta.SlateQuote

At any given time, Fiesta Dinnerware has only 15 colors in its spectrum. So, with the addition of Slate and Sage, Black and Peacock will retire. Peacock has been in production since 2005 and Black since 1986, when the Fiesta Dinnerware line was brought back after a hiatus in production from 1969 – 1985.

Standard dinnerware pieces will be available in Slate and Sage, including 4- and 5- piece sets, and a variety of plates, platters, bowls, mugs, and the signature disk pitcher, as well as select serving pieces (sold separately). Suggested retail price for the 4- and 5-piece place settings is $32.99 (MAP) and $56.00(MSRP). Presale starts May 15th, 2015 and items will be in better department, .coms and specialty stores. Available mid June 2015.

You can find Slate and Sage on display at the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago, March 7-10, 2015, Booth S2003, the Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show, March 6-15, 2015 Booth 3009, and at our retail locations: Everything Fiesta (Sutton, WV) and The Homer Laughlin China Retail Outlet (Newell, WV).
