Argentina Table for One

This week's table happens to coincide with the visit of Argentinian born Pope Francis I. Pat and I were talking about this amazing man - you don't even have to be of his faith to see how he has influenced so many people around the world (I especially like him because he chose the name of my favorite Saint - St. Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of Animals who is also remembered for his care and concern for the poor.)

Anyway, Pat went to our "supply" of napkins and chose one that has flags of all Central and South American countries as the inspiration to this week's table.
The table - complete with Betty Boop dressed to do the "zamba" - a native Argentinian dance that is popular to locals. It is danced in the streets and especially on national holidays in Argentina. 

Since we do not have a lot of red and black, Pat used German made Waechtersbach dishware.

Flatware is "Hammered" stainless steel by Godinger

These glasses are from Libby but you can get them at the Dollar Store

Ahhhhh.....lovely Betty.

Pat made a small bouquet of red roses to match the one in Betty's hair

A glitzy napkin ring to match Betty....
