Fiesta Dining under the Trellis

Well, we have so many wonderful places to sit, I thought I would create this Fiesta Taco dinner outside our study. My husband & I  are always in this room  working on our computers.  We have his and her computers.  He works at home 3 days a week and I am retired. I manage to keep busy though.......We added a fountain for some relaxing sound and visual impact.









 I used those taco shell forms you find at the stores.  I found mine at Ross.  Easy to use, just add a tortilla to the form and bake for 10 minutes. Amazon has them for $9.99 for a set of 2.

 I created place cards and added them to mini bottles of tequila.















               I used terra cotta saucers for the plate chargers.



                                                     One of   Our Fountains.


             Cute margarita glass with a cactus and sleeping guy.
                              I made mango margaritas.

I'm linking up with The  Style Sisters for Centerpiece Wednesday.



             I'm linking up with Susan for Tablescape Thursday.

           
Thanks again for coming by and I do so appreciate your sweet comments.

  4. Hey, Linda! You hit the nail on the head with that flatware!!! Wow! That is really, really sharp! It goes perfectly with your theme. I'm pretty sure I should have been at that dinner because I saw a tequila bottle with my name on it! :-) It's nice that you're still able to dine outside. Our days here in Missouri are numbered on that. Starting to get chilly. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your very nice comments. See you soon!!!

  14. I really like the way this one came together!! The salad shells were a great idea, and the colors that you used and layered together were perfect.

    (Doesn't hurt that I happen to love those colors!)

    BUT my favorite part was the cute placecard holder. I just love a creative place card. It's the little kid in me, I guess.
