Cinco de Mayo Table for One

To me, celebrating Cinco de Mayo means great food and a colorful table. This year is no exception.
Over view of the table

The place setting

Flatware is "Hammer Handle" by Godinger Silver

Pat used a simple water glass (from the Dollar Store) and a small 12oz. pilsner (we looked for a very long time for small pilsners - ever notice how most of them are huge? People must drink a lot of beer....) Tiny red chilis hang from the napkin to add a touch of color.

First layer of the place setting is a brightly colored bowl - "Chili Peppers" by Laurie Gates

Next layer is a Waechtersbach yellow salad plate

You can tell why the pattern is called "Chili Peppers" from the dinner plate

Pat used two chargers - this is actually the dinner plate in this pattern but it is too larger for a normal plate so Pat usually uses it for a charger

Sorry for the glare - but this is a beautiful blue metal charger from Pier 1

One last look
Where it came from:

  1. Bright and happy! Great combination for Cinco de Mayo!!!

  2. Love the brightly colored dishes----especially the Chili Peppers patterned one. Also like the chili peppers you have hanging off the glass. Sure gets me hungry for some tacos!! Well done! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
