Close up of the place setting
Flatware is "Montana" by Gourmet Settings
First layer of the Mexican place setting is a German bowl by Waechtersbach.....go figure...
Pat used a mix of red and blue shades for the accent plates
Obviously, bright yellow was the perfect choice for the dinner plate
This is actually a beautiful periwinkle blue charger in Fiestaware. Sorry the color is so bad.

I love yellow. I can't get enough of it. Pat thought she was joking when she said something about using this glass....I took her seriously.

Here's Santa - he sits on a bright yellow plate of hot chilis
Both trees sit in yellow bowls
