This week I decided to add some beautiful spring colors
to my usual blue & white Indies Blue by Johnson Brothers.
I used some talavera platters as my centerpiece with limes. I found one at a garage sale and the other two at a 'side of the road' kind of store here in San Antonio. A lot of times, vendors come up from Mexico, so you can buy talavera rather inexpensively. The tortilla warmer was my mom's. A store was closing here when she was redoing her kitchen and she bought several pieces at a huge discount. The salt & peppers were from that sale too.
I've had these glasses forever. They're all Mexican cobalt, but from Ross, Pier One, Pottery Barn and Mexico! I used clearance napkins from Target in blue and yellow to play off the colors in the pottery. My mom gave me her place mats a while back. I used them as a runner today.
I added my World Market red handled forks for a little extra pop of color.
My husband's birthday is tomorrow, so we're having tostados (beans, avocado, cheese and sour cream), Mexican rice, chips and roasted salsa, and spicy chili lime coleslaw, and cake...not sure what I'll make or buy yet...he did get another apple cake on Sunday to commemorate his birthday week:)
I'll post the spicy coleslaw recipe later this week!
