Duck Dynasty fans should be jealous!
After blogging for almost three years and buying small "prop" dishes here and there, I've started to feel antsy for some new dinnerware - full sets, not a dish or two here and there. As I've become more familiar with different types of dishes and kitchenware manufacturers, I've finally made my decision. I've decided that I will replace these wildlife dishes with an American classic, Fiestaware.
The Homer Laughlin Company that makes Fiesta was kind enough to send me this Mini Disc Pitcher to get me started. I chose the color, Sunflower, because it's so bright and cheery. This pitcher is the perfect size to use for breakfast. It holds the perfect amount of orange juice for the kids.
I love the sturdy feel of the pitcher and the fact that it all one piece which makes it easy to wash. I hate pitchers that come apart and have pieces that are difficult to clean. When you're not using it for beverages, it makes a perfect vase to hold some flowers from your garden or from your husband as a "thank you" for letting him keep his dishes for almost 20 years!
When I surveyed my Facebook readers about Fiestaware, they responded with enthusiasm! There are so many fans out there and I have become one of them. These are quality products made right here in the U.S.A. There's a huge selection of colors. I've decided to go with an assortment of colors for my dinnerware starting with Sunflower here and continuing with Lemongrass, Ivory, Scarlet, Paprika, and Plum. These dishes are affordable and I plan to purchase one set a time as I can afford them. It could be a slow process, but a satisfying one. I'll keep you updated to my progress.
Are you a fan of Fiesta? Which pieces do you have? Let's dish!
