I'm planning an end of summer Mexican Fiesta Party for a few friends. I've got the table ready and working on the food.
My party idea started with this tamale dish that my SIL ordered at a small restaurant while we were in Custer, WY. It reminded me of back-in-the-day when our young adult church class would make and sell tamales. I am hoping I can bring back those tamale-making skills from the past for my party.
My table in set in the festive colors of red, yellow, and blues. Great colors for a Mexican Fiesta.
The dishes are a mix with aqua goblets from Michael's (last year), aqua chargers from TJMaxx , yellow plates and bowls from $store, the napkins and napkin rings are from Pier 1, new this year.
The centerpiece and large square plate on the breadrack are pieces from Southern Living at Home umpteen years ago. I can't believe they haven't gotten broken in my moves.
The napkins and napkin rings were the perfect colors for the table. I didn't go in Pier 1 with them in mind but sure glad I found them. I just love the dragon fly napkin rings.
A salad loaded with protein is next. To the crisp romaine lettuce, grilled chicken, guacamole, pico de gallo, avocado ranch dressing, cheddar cheese, reduced-fat sour cream, Latin rice and slow-simmered black beans are added.
These Sombrero cookies from Big Fat Cook.com could be a hit and look fairly easy to make.
Thanks for stopping by for a little Fiesta - Judy.
