Claret: NEW 2016 Fiesta Color

 

Claret (1)

It comes but once a year and for Fiesta Dinnerware enthusiasts worldwide, it’s like Christmas morning. Today we announce our new color of 2016!

The 2016 Color of the Year is – CLARET!

How does Claret fit in the Fiesta family of colors? Quite nicely, we must say. Check out the entire spectrum here: Ivory, Slate, Sage, Claret, Scarlet, Poppy, Tangerine, Sunflower, Lemongrass, Shamrock, Turquoise, Lapis, Cobalt, Paprika, and White.

Fiesta Dinnerware color spectrum for 2016 - featuring new color Claret. Learn more on the blog, www.alwaysfestive.com.

Claret is a high-fashion color that fills a void in the Fiesta spectrum. If you follow our new color introductions closely, you’ll remember we introduced Sage and Slate in 2015. Claret is a beautiful progression into this sophisticated color palette, but it also mixes well with the more vibrant hues, bringing depth and a complementing accent into the Fiesta palette.

Incidentally, without getting into specifics, Claret is actually quite a difficult color to make. As with anything that’s “high-fashion,” it may not be around for all that long, so we would recommend adding Claret to your Fiesta repertoire while it’s hot off the runway!

You can get your hands on Claret mid-June 2016 at better department stores, .coms, specialty stores, and www.fiestafactorydirect.com.

Are you already working on some creative color combinations in your mind? We know you so well! Be sure to share them with us on Facebook or the comment section below. We’ve been coming up with some ideas here at the factory too!

 

For those of you who are true Fiesta color connoisseurs and are wondering what Claret looks like in comparison to some of our similarly hued colors of the past, check out our comparison chart below.

Fiesta Dinnerware 2016 Color Comparison Chart

At any given time, we are only able to fire 15 colors on our kiln, so we usually have 15 colors on our color spectrum. Thus, we bid our friend Plum a happy retirement late last year. So, get your Plum pieces while you still can at www.fiestafactorydirect.com.

Stay tuned on our Fiesta Dinnerware Facebook page over the next few days where we’re coming to you live from the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago. We’ll be sharing other new product introductions.

And join us on Pinterest tonight, Saturday, March 5, at 7:00 pm Central Standard Time (8:00 pm EST) for a live Fiesta Pinterest Party! We’ll be pinning all sorts of Fiesta photos featuring Claret, as well as other Fiesta favorites. We hope to see you there!

Fiesta Dinnerware New Products: Foundry Collection, Holiday & Halloween

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!

Fiesta Dinnerware Foundry Collection at the blog www.alwaysfestive.com.

The Fiesta Foundry Collection will be available in the following pieces beginning April 2016 at department stores, .coms and www.fiestafactorydirect.com:

  • Skillet/Baker
  • Pizza/Baking Tray 12″
  • Rectangular Baker 9×13”
  • Square Baker 9×9”
  • Individual Oval Baker
  • Loaf Pan
  • Bread Tray
  • Ramekin 8oz
  • Jumbo Bowl 18oz

In other exciting news, there’s going to be a lot more to celebrate around the holidays this year because we’re expanding our Christmas and Halloween patterns.

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.

Keep checking www.fiestafactorydirect.com and our Fiesta Facebook and Pinterest pages for more information. ‘Tis the season for Fiesta new product introductions!

A Fiesta Inspired Baby Shower

Baby-Shower-Fiesta

When it comes to throwing a celebration, we always have tableware covered. With 15 colors to choose from, the festive Fiesta color spectrum instantly becomes an integral part of the party decorations. This week’s blog post is all about throwing an intimate baby shower — with Fiesta front and center, of course.

We stuck to a color palette that was bright, bold and crisp. Lemongrass was the perfect color to make that statement and White serves as a clean accent color. Throw in a splashes of pink, Sunflower and gold and we were ready to start planning!

 

Fiesta Entertaining Tip: Always choose a color palette before you start getting into the details of planning any get-together. This will help you stay organized and visualize the overall look.

 

More and more baby showers are concentrating less on color coded gender parties and opting to reflect more upon the mom’s style. The theme doesn’t necessarily have to reflect the gender, unless that is the wish of the mom-to-be! We love this baby shower that Style Me Pretty covered. The mother-to-be was expecting a boy, yet the shower didn’t reflect the baby’s gender. Rather, it reflected her personal style and showed that hosts can break the rules by pampering the mom-to-be with a baby shower that celebrates her becoming a mother in different ways.

In the case of our Fiesta shower, we went full steam on the gender reveal by incorporating a touch of pink into this baby girl themed shower. We included a pink and white banner from Jules and Kenna to showcase the excitement of the baby’s gender.

 

Cover-Image
One of the more recent baby shower trends is renting unique furniture for parties and events. This event decor idea was made popular with weddings, but the trend is now seen at many baby showers as well. Rental furniture certainly adds to the ambiance and overall theme of the baby shower. This Victorian-styled couch is in a soft pink color that fit perfectly with the color palette of Lemongrass and White—It felt ultra feminine.

We also rented all the chairs and tables from the Touched by Time Vintage Rentals. If you choose to host a baby shower at a unique venue or the venue doesn’t have seating, this is a great option, especially if you’d have to rent chairs and tables anyhow. We vote for fun furniture. It really adds that special something and the mommy-to-be will be so touched that her shower was especially unique.

 

Fiesta Entertaining Tips: Try and have at least two face-to-face conversations during the planning process for the baby shower with the soon-to-be mom. You want to make sure that she likes the general direction that you’re going in. Email and texting are great, but nothing beats seeing a smile in person. At the very least, a phone call will do.

 

For the tablescape (our favorite part!) we decided to forgo any bright colored flowers because we didn’t want to take away from the vibrant colors of the Fiesta Dinnerware. Instead we used soft greenery and white flowers down the center of the table. We loved the idea of the centerpieces draping off the sides of the table. This is where we added some pops of color and got a little extra creative.

Instead of using a traditional table cloth, we opted to use butcher paper. Not only is this an affordable option compared to the plastic throw away tablecloths, but we could draw on it. We first saw this idea on Pinterest from The Kitchn. They used it for Thanksgiving, but we adapted it for this occasion to show how versatile butcher paper is. We love the idea of adding unique touches in unexpected ways for guests.

We used a white chalk marker from art and craft store, Michael’s, to draw around the place setting as if creating a rounded placemat. This frames the place setting and gives it an extra special touch. We drew simple flowers and leaves, but feel free to get as elaborate as you would like!

Fiesta Entertaining Tip: For celebrations large or small, assigning seating is always a wonderful way to keep the conversation and the laughter flowing. Seating a talkative person next to someone who may be shy is a great way to make sure that everyone feels included.

 

What baby shower would be complete without a party favor? It wouldn’t be! For this shoot we showcased a unique, yet simple, idea that added a special touch and didn’t take much time or money to make. Thebump.com gave us the idea for fabric-covered lolipops as baby shower favors.

Just purchase a yard or two of fabric, a bag of lollipops and some ribbon to tie off the fabric. Once you have the bag of lollipops and know the size (we opted for an assortment of sizes) then you will know how much fabric you will need for each favor.

 

Cutting the fabric into squares is the best shape to ensure that the favor will be completely covered with fabric. Make sure that the square of fabric is larger than the lollipop, you want the entire piece of candy to be covered with a little bit of the fabric bunched together at the bottom. This allows you to tie the fabric together over the lollipop and allow it to stay secured.

Final-Last

We hope this styled shoot inspires you to include Fiesta Dinnerware in the next baby shower you host or any special event that includes family, friends and laughter.

Join us on Pinterest and Facebook for more tips and tricks on different ways to utilize your Fiesta Dinnerware. We created a special Fiesta baby shower Pinterest board here. Remember to use #SummerFiesta to share your summertime celebrations with us.

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.

Fiesta New Color! Live at #IHHS2015

Peek under the curtain to the International Home + Housewares 2015 showroom floor as we reveal the #FiestaNewColor. We are so incredibly honored and happy to announce… sleek Slate and savory Sage. 

#fiestanewcolor

 

“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 New Color Reveal

Fiesta New Color Reveal“Fiesta history has always leaned toward a bright fashionable pallet. Today’s current updates in home fashion add rich Slate grey and accents of Sage green, providing a strong balance and coordination with Fiesta’s bright color pallet. 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, our VP of Sales and Marketing at Home Laughlin.
