September’s Color of the Month

At the beginning of September, we decided to name our first ever Fiesta Color of the Month! Without hesitation, Daffodil, our 2017 new color, was picked from the pack. Why did we choose our brightest, boldest yellow to represent September? We had our Sales and Marketing VP, Rich Brinkman, explain.

“September is the lead up month to my favorite season – Fall. A season that conjures all our childhood memories and senses, specifically taste, smell and vision. Color is a strong part of Fall, as no season is so well tied with color. As we begin to see change, the brightness of summer begins to migrate to the yellow-gold and orange-red families. For me, the first accent of color change is the yellow/gold highlights such as Fiesta® Daffodil, which then migrates to a more dominate fall season palette of bright oranges, rusts, reds, purples and greens. Enjoy all that is Fall, the flavors, scents and beauty of the season!”

-Rich Brinkman

To continue with the theme of Daffodil for the month, we’re including 4 of our favorite Daffodil inspired color combinations for you to try at home!

Celebrate – featuring Daffodil, Scarlet, Lapis, Poppy, Turquoise, Shamrock and Lemongrass.

Coastal – featuring Daffodil, Lemongrass, Turquoise, Lapis, Cobalt, and Claret.

Cottage – featuring Daffodil, Ivory, Poppy, Lapis, and Turquoise.

Spicy – featuring Daffodil, Sunflower, Poppy, Claret, Lemongrass, and Tangerine.

Uncle Pete’s Moscow Mules

Nothing says summer like backyard get-togethers with good conversation, and ice-cold cocktails. Our personal drink of choice during these warm summer evenings is a classic Moscow Mule, served in our oh-so-adorable Fiesta copper mugs (a must for Mules)! Our licensed mugs are found at Dillard’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Kohl’s, and come in both full size (18 oz.), and miniature (2 oz.) for measuring out shots. Luckily for us, we have one of the best Moscow Mule makers in the biz right here at the factory: Uncle Pete!

As some of you may know, Homer Laughlin is a family owned and operated company. Pete is an in law of the family, with his wife, Jeannie, being a 4th generation owner. He works as VP in the company and helps to oversee the manufacturing of our beloved Fiesta Dinnerware. During family parties on their back porch, you can always count on Uncle Pete to bring his famous Moscow Mules to the fun. He’s been making this recipe for years, and now we’re sharing it with all of you!

Pete’s tips for this concoction are to always use copper mugs, and to make sure you get a good ginger beer that’s not too bitter, and not too sweet. His ginger beer of choice is Gosling’s. Now drink up and enjoy!

Fiesta Floral Bouquet Collection

Back in January, we showed you all our newest Fiesta decorated collection: Floral Bouquet. The pattern was perfect to get us through those dreary winter months, and now that it’s spring, it’s an absolute tabletop essential! While we’ve featured our Luncheon Plate in the collection, we wanted to show off  all of the elements of our Floral Bouquet line up.

You’ve already seen (and fallen in love with) our fabulous floral Luncheon Plates, but how about those floral insulated tumblers? These are ideal for the upcoming weather when you’d give anything for an ice cold drink! You can find them here in a 16 oz Tumbler, 9 oz Stemless Wine Glass and Stemmed Wine Glass.

When you find your table could still use more flowers, reach for our Floral Bouquet linens. You can take your pick between Napkins, Placemats, multiple sizes of Tablecloths, or all of the above! These linens are for indoor and outdoor use, so feel free to use them for pretty picnics and indoor celebrations alike.

Once you have all of the accompaniments, you won’t want to forget the Luncheons! At 9 inches, these beauties are perfect for any meal, and give your table the perfect pop of color and whimsy.
