We sure have been busy at the Homer Laughlin factory! Not only did we release our new 2016 color – Claret – this week, but we’re also announcing several new items. Boy, are we excited to share them with you!
We’re casting a new light on traditional dinnerware with something completely different: the Fiesta Dinnerware Foundry Collection. Foundry has a matte textured charcoal glaze with the distinct look of a cast iron piece that has seen many meals and memories over time. It has the characteristic feel of seasoned cast iron, yet the ease of use of rust-free ceramic dinnerware.
Many people like the aesthetics of serving their meals on cast iron, but let’s be real…caring for cast iron can be high maintenance. The Foundry Collection offers the best of both worlds!
The Fiesta Foundry Collection will be available in the following pieces beginning April 2016 at department stores, .coms and www.fiestafactorydirect.com:
The Christmas Tree collection is in its tenth year of production (can you believe it?!) and continues to grow in popularity. We’re adding the following pieces:
The first set in a series of three of the Twelve Days of Christmas collection was introduced last year, including Days 1-4. This year, we’re introducing the next in the series, Days 5-8, in a Set of 4 Mugs and a Set of 4 Salad/Dessert Plates:
And Halloween’s getting much spookier with the addition of Ghosts and a Trio of Skeletons:
The Halloween collection will be available for purchase in July and Fiesta Christmas Tree and Twelve Days of Christmas will be available in early August at better department stores, .coms and www.fiestafactorydirect.com.
We’re so excited this holiday season to have a collectors’ series available to add to your holiday traditions. This year, we launched our 12 Days of Christmas collection with this first set of four java mugs and four salad plates. They’re the first in a series of three to complete the collection of 12 java mugs and 12 salad plates over the next three years.
We provided four different ways to incorporate the first set of the series with your existing Fiesta collection.
Our first table idea is paired with sleek Slate. Slate is such a fun color because it can really be dressed up and that’s just what we did here. We paired the first day of Christmas with lights and a Cobalt napkin and a dressed it up by tying some shimmery tulle to create a beautiful bow to make it extra special.
For the second day, we incorporated all four sets with a colorful and bright collection of Fiesta Dinnerware. We paired the set of four java mugs and four salad plates with Scarlet, Turquoise, Tangerine and Sunflower with the Fiesta celebration flatware. We used the same complementary colors in all the placemats and fringe napkins.
A Country Christmas
The cute French hens really spoke to a fun classic country Christmas look. This set coupled perfectly with a Sage dinner plate and Sage salt and pepper shakers. We added in some pine cones and a Christmas tree sprig decorated with holly to match the Scarlet flatware and the Fiesta soiree plaid tablecloth. Doesn’t this setting feel warm and cozy?
Scandinavian Inspired Setting
For the fourth day setting, we were inspired to create a Scandinavian theme with Poppy and Tangerine colors to complement the blue birds in the salad plate and the java mug. We used the tree branches to put together a small wreath the size of the dinner plate. We added in colorful felt flowers for an added pop of color. We kept the linens simple with just a placemat and napkin because the wood grains of the table added to the whimsical Scandinavian theme.
We hope you love the new 12 Days of Christmas collection and incorporate it into the your family holiday traditions for years to come.
