I've used these dishes most often with blue placemats and napkins, but last weekend I picked up some yellow and orange placemats and orange napkins at Crate and Barrel in Austin. We were there attending a nephew's wedding, but managed to fit in a little recreational shopping! Here's the dinner plate with the new table linens and our everyday stainless, Towle Beaded Antique.
Here I've added the rimmed soup bowl to the setting.
Here's a closer look at the pattern, which includes stylized oranges, pears, and pineapples with the blue vines. Yes, that's me you can see reflected upside down in the spoon!
I also picked up some bright orange salad plates at Crate and Barrel, so tried those with the dinner plates. I think they're a bit TOO bright, but they were great for the margarita pie we had for dessert!
Here I tried layering the cobalt blue Fiesta bowl to tone down the orange a bit.
Here's a bird's eye view.
Here's a look at the whole table, set for Sunday night supper. We usually have my father-in-law over on Sunday nights, and last week we served smoked brisket and sausage, pinto beans, mock potato salad (Paula Deen's Warm Potato Salad made with cauliflower instead of potatoes), and homemade carrot yeast rolls.
One more close-up!
