Fiesta is a dinnerware line that first hit store shelves in the mid 1930s. The ceramic, glazed cups, bowls and plates feature art deco styling and vivid, solid colours. The monochromatic sets offer you the option of using a single colour when setting your table or making lively colour pairings to express your individuality and flair or to celebrate a holiday or special occasion.

The Ultimate Display

If you're a Fiesta collector, consider setting your table using one setting in each colour that you own, or a single piece of dinnerware in each colour you own, creating a very eclectic look. The end result will be a stunning display in a panoply of colors.This way of combining Fiesta pieces allows you to continually mix things up and choose specific colours for certain occasions.

American Pride

Pull out your red, white and blue Fiesta dinnerware and add a touch of Americana decor to your home. This timeless look can work all year round but will be especially fitting for the Memorial Day, Labor Day and Fourth of July holidays. Mix and match the colours or consider using multiple shades of red and blue (light and dark) for a unique look. Use flag-theme napkins to complete the look.

Around the World

Celebrate different countries and cuisines with creative Fiesta colour pairings. For Cinco de Mayo, use the colours of the Mexican flag -- red, white and green -- to create a colour combination that celebrates the event. To compliment a Greek-theme dinner, use blue and white dinnerware. You can use this method of combining colours for just about any country.

Rainbow Array

To make a bright and sunny display of Fiesta dinnerware, use a rainbow as inspiration. Use the colours red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple to create a rainbow on your table. If you really want to make this theme stand out, use a light blue tablecloth to represent the sky, white napkins for clouds and bright yellow serving bowls to symbolise the sun.

Holiday Tables

Fiesta dinnerware comes in such a wide array of colours that you can create colour combinations for just about any holiday or celebration. Use brown, orange, goldenrod and yellow for Thanksgiving dinners. Opt for red and white dinnerware for a Valentine's Day treat. Select light shades of pink, blue, green, yellow and purple for springtime or Easter dinner. Use the popular Christmas colours of red and green during the holiday season, and choose blue and white for Hanukkah. The possibilities are endless.
