Anyone out there register for fiestaware? How many settings did you register for and what colors?
We’ve registered for 12 settings in all different colors. We’ve registered for sunflower, marigold, shamrock, scarlet, cobalt, turquoise, peacock, chocolate, lemongrass, plum, paprika, tangerine. Are we the only oddballs that are registering for none of the same color?
Also, I love the gusto bowl so we wanted to register for those too. We registered for 12 also, 1 of each color, but is that too many for something like that? We wanted to have the 12 place settings for the dinnerware because we wanted to have enough to entertain a good amount of people but is that on the high side for the bowls?

There was another recent post about Fiestaware and all the Bees were ordering different colors.
I would include the 12 bowls as they are large and can also be used for soup, stews, rice bowls etc.

I registered for Fiesta. I didn’t want it to be any specific colors, but I also didn’t register for any certain colors. Its a small town type shop and my friend’s aunt owns the store so I told her basically whatever she has on hand I was ok with and she said if I just didn’t like something to bring it back and she would order it in whatever color I wanted.

We registered for four place settings each of three different colors. We wanted to have at least four matching settings. And I love the gusto bowls! 12 of them will definitely take up some space, so keep that as a consideration. We only have a few of them.

If you’re an oddball so are we!
We also registered for 12: Scarlet, Paprika, Marigold, Sunflower, Tangerine, Lemongrass, Shamrock, Turquoise, Peacock, Plum, Cobalt, & Chocolate.
We picked 12 places settings of the 4 pc set, plus: luncheon plate, gusto bowl, fruit bowl, & small bowl. It’s a lot of bowls, but we use them– especially the gusto bowls for when we do shili night with our friends/family (which happens about once a month).
We also added 1-3 serving peices for each color as well (again, we entertain A LOT, but we also don’t expect to get all of them).
We already have all of the 4pc. sets and maybe 3/4 of the other place setting selections– plus about a 1/2 dozen serving pieces and I LOVE it! It’s super sturdy and can handle being knocked around by my other 1/2, plus it’s so easy to clean! I highly recommend this stuff, and I love the way all the colors look in my cabinet and on my table.
