A Summer Citrus Fiesta Wedding

 

Fiesta Dinnerware Citrus Summer Wedding

This styled shoot shows just what can happen when Fiesta Dinnerware has a wedding moment—hint hint, the results are amazing!

With Fiesta Dinnerware serving up a citrus-inspired color palette against breathtaking views of a Southern California Vineyard backdrop, you have the perfect setting for an intimate Fiesta wedding celebration that will impress your guests!

We incorporated new colors Sage and Slate into the wedding setting along with Fiesta favorites— Poppy, Sunflower and Turquoise. Our friends from Bravado Design created the lovely floral arrangements and styled the Fiesta products to give us this beautiful presentation.

The Beverages

Fiesta Dinnerware Beverage Servers - wedding drink station

 

We served lemon and lime water in the sunflower beverage server and raspberry limeade in the turquoise beverage server to tie in the citrus theme.

Fiesta Dinnerware Large Disc Pitchers in Sunflower, Poppy and Turquoise. Great for weddings and events!

Disc Pitchers in Poppy, Turquoise and Sunflower set in a Slate oval platter were used to fill up with beverages to take back to the table for dinner.

Orange paper straws were a great compliment next to the Sunflower and Turquoise Beverage servers, not to mention fun.

 

 

The Cake and Food

Fiesta Dinnerware stack of Omni Trays. So pretty for serving up appetizers.

 Appetizers were set up in unique ways with the entertaining collection to show off the colors, while bowls of citrus were used to add to the feel of the citrus theme. 

Fiesta Dinnerware cake stand hack: Hostess Bowl turned upside down with Pizza/Baking Tray on top. Genius!

The citrus theme was also carried over to the appetizers as well. Mason jars were filled with a wild salmon ceviche with layers of citrus and small bowls made out oranges were filled with wild tuna and avocado with pickled red onions.

Fiesta Dinnerware Hostess Bowl topped with Pizza/Baking Tray. The perfect cake stand!

Using a Fiesta hack to create a beautiful cake stand, we added kumquats instead of flowers to top this cake by Nothing Bundt Cakes. We love the contrast of the cake against the Poppy color.

The Tablescape

 

Who's ready for a summer wedding? Crisp and clean, this Fiesta Dinnerware color palette of Sage, Slate, Sunflower, Poppy, and Turquoise is beautifully set off against a vineyard backdrop.

A Fiesta Cruise Around the World

A full-flavored meal needs no translation. In fact, food is probably the most universal language, if we’d only let our taste buds do the talking. That’s exactly what we’re doing in celebration of World Health Day. Escape with us to a culinary cruise-inspired adventure as we taste a bit of India, France, and Italy – all while intermixing healthy substitutes to classic-cultural favorites.

Good food is a global thing and I find (2)

 

Bonjour! Paris, France is the pinnacle of “everything in moderation.”  

Happy World Health Day

So we’re having a dollop of crème fraîche and a plethora of the antioxidant powerhouse—berries, and some savory brie cheese with apples. Top it off with a fresh garnish like mint and add a drizzle of honey. Set your very own Parisian tablescape with Fiesta Dinnerware Lapis Dip and Spreader Set, Fiesta Lapis Oval Platter, Scarlet and Lapis Luncheon Plates, Ivory Salad Plates, the Scarlet Medium Heart Bowl, Demitasse Cups and Saucers in Lapis and Scarlet.

World Health Day Dinner Recipes for TonightIf you want to get uber fancy, try your hand at Sugar and Cloth’s DIY Fruit Macaroons.

Happy World Health Day!

Mazay dar is “delicious” in India. The colors of this country are as vibrant as its flavors and spices— and the spices are quite plentiful. We set our India-inspired table with a hearty serving of healthy chicken on top of couscous with coconut curry in our Fiesta Sunflower Small Bistro Bowls and Tangerine and Sage Dinner Plates. Eating Well has a “mazay dar” recipe we think you’ll love. Serve with traditional Indian naan (we found a healthy wheat version).

Happy World Health Day

Wash it down with a fruity cultural favorite like Mango Lassi. Think of this drink like a mango milkshake, but healthier. All you need to get started is this recipe from Jamie Oliver, plus his wise foodie quote.

Fiesta Dinnerware World Health DaySet a table like ours with a few Fiesta favorites: Tangerine and Sage Dinner Plates, Medium Sunflower Bistro Bowls, Cobalt Bread Tray and new Celebrations Flatware (coming soon!).

Happy World Health Day

Delicioso! When we think about Italy, our tastebuds and tummies immediately think, “Pasta!” But carb-heavy pasta can leave us sluggish. We jumped on the paleo bandwagon and found a healthy solution that leaves us satisfied and energized — zucchini “pasta”. All you need is a spirulizer to make zucchini ribbons. Saute strands of zucchini pasta in a pan or roast in the oven with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. We sprinkled toasted pine nuts and asiago cheese on top for some extra flavor. *Tip: Add lots of flavor with fewer calories by using a sprinkle of stronger cheese like asiago.

Serve with a satisfying side of antipasto salad and a slice of warm Italian bread. Don’t forget the Pinot Grigio. A glass of wine a day is heart healthy!

For our bueno Italian table setting, we used the new Fiesta Dinnerware Casserole in Turquoise (coming soon!), Individual Oval Casserole in Shamrock, Poppy Flatware, Dinner Plates in Shamrock and Sunflower, and Luncheon Plates in Scarlet and Cobalt.

Happy World Health Day

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.

“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).
