Using terra cotta saucers for the chargers makes it rustic. Different colored plates and 3 colors of napkins make the table pop.
I know you are not supposed to use placemats on top of tablecloths. Someone anonymously commented on a post years ago advising me that. Alycia from Table Twenty-One told me anything goes.....LOL. Thanks Alycia.
I used them to add more color to the table and the tablecloth was used to protect the table from water and sangria glass marks.

I made two trays of them, so we have left-overs. I also made Mexican rice, refried beans and served pork tamales.
For dessert, I made cookie bowls and homemade strawberry ice cream. The cookie bowls were created from my mini bundt cake pan. I just turned it over and sprayed pam and laid the cookie dough circles on each bundt. Just use your basic cookie dough recipe or change it up with flavors or mini chocolate chips.
Wilton makes a special pan. I thought why not get creative and use what I have.
They don't have the ruffled edge. I used my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker.
The change he made was adding 7-up to the mix and strawberries. We forgot to take a picture of it.
Here's a picture from Food and Wine.
