Bonjour, Marigold!

I'm celebrating two tabletop milestones tonight: the arrival of my Fiesta 75th anniversary marigold soup tureen & Bastille Day!

I have this Sun Glo Paris tablecloth in a yellow/paprika/green colorway, and I was excited to find this primary-toned version. I bought this one on-line, and I did not realize that the smaller size cloth does not have the Eiffel Tower on it. Good thing I had a few towers in my accessory collection!

The placesetting feature Fiesta dinnerware in marigold squares, peacock buffet plates and scarlet gusto bowls along with Ikea flatware and French pressed glass tumblers.

Vive La France!

Vive la Fiesta!


  1. Looks wonderful. I used a little Marigold on my table also. Have a great weekend!

  2. Wonderful! Happy Bastille Day! ~ Sarah

  5. Tres jolie! I'm starting to rethink my no-tureen thoughts....
