Cinco de Mayo Table

Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, and Pat decided to celebrate the day with a very colorful, festive tablescape.
Over view of the table - no dull, boring colors here......Pat used a bright placemat placed directly on the table top

Close up of the place setting

The rustic flatware is "Montana" by Gourmet Settings - the black handles coordinate with the black soup bowl

Pat chose inexpensive glassware from the Dollar Store because of the substantial stem

The succulent-like napkin ring is from Pier 1

First layer of the place setting is a square, matte black soup bowl

Next layer is a bright red salad plate from Waechtersbach

The Dinner plate is a bright yellow "Fun Factory" plate also by Waechterbach

The charger is an inexpensive lacquer charger spray painted orange

The centerpiece is a very unusual candle/flower holder that Pat found at a thrift store and spray painted black. She made two arrangements in large square bowls (that matched the soup bowl) to go on each side.

One last look from the other end of the table
