Andrea neglected to mention in her post about Fiestaware that she only has two dinner plates because they don't fit into her kitchen cabinet. They usually only use the lunch or bread and butter plates at that tiny table. New York City kitchens can be a real challenge!
At the Cottage I have several tables I can use, a few outside setting areas and a lovely dining room table. The colors at the cottage are soft and pretty, pinks, greens and creams so I like to use the pastel Fiesta for the tables. And like most people who have Fiestaware I like to mix and match.
The tablecloth is a Pottery Barn outlet find and the sweet napkins were stitched up by my dear friend Rita. The silverware and glasses are from my favorite discount store Target.
The hydrangeas are in a tea pot which was $5.00 thrift store find, the lid was missing but it makes a perfect little vase. This is close to being the last hurrah for the hydrangeas, they were glorious this year, I will be so sad to see them go.
All clean and ready to go for next time!
Please make sure you check out our tea time giveaway going on thru August 31st.
A side note: Andrea is on hurricane Irene watch, she is on the very edge of the evacuation zone in her area of Nolita in NYC. She has several friends that are in the evacuation zone and they will squeeze into her little apartment. I'm saying prayers and hoping storm blows out to sea. Will keep you posted on how she weathers the storm.
