Welcome to the 7th Let's Dish, the place dish lovers meet Wed night's at 7, LOL!
Next week is the
MOTHER'S DAY CHALLENGE.
It can be a table dedicated to your mom, or showing us something table related she has given you. It could be from mom, or mom in law too! As for all challenges, a little give away too!
Tonight I am bringing a little Fiesta table for Cinco de Mayo to the meeting of dish dames! So get out your maracas and sombreros, and Let's Dish!
A few years I got these colorful plates by Gibson for .50 in the supermarket. Lots of colors to choose from!
I used a green ruffled charger from CTS, the colorful plates and soup/salad bowl, flatware by Fiesta via Tues. Morning.
I used those same 1.00 red and yellow tulips in my mom's yellow pitcher as the centerpiece. I placed it on a folded runner made from a 1.00 curtain panel from CTS.
I turned 2 Margherita stainless steel glasses upside down to hold the candles. Some maracas tied with colorful ribbon for the dancing we will do later! :)
Green napkin, maracas napkin rings from PBarn, and yellow condiment/butter dish from Target.
Look at these glasses!
Yellow and green speckled perfect for a Corona , or in my case Sierra Mist Free! They were a birthday gift from Alma, The Tablescaper.
They are sure to appear in many tablescapes!
Another view, with a green bottle of mineral water dressed up for the Fiesta!
I didn't do a Fiesta table last year but the year before I used these dishes. Same dishes, maracas and napkin rings, but the rest is different.
I think I can get another year out of them, there's blue in them, so I can go with that!
In my last post I showed you the centerpieces and favors I did for a baby shower last Sat.
I got lots of emails with questions about them.
I got the snapdragons for 1.49 a 4 in pot at HDepot.
The roses were 100 in a bundle for 14.99 at Sams Club, and they were gorgeous.
As I said, they have a great selection of flowers, much better than Costco and so much more reasonable than a florist. I have been buying them for parties for years.
If you didn't see the beautiful cake, click here! Worth a look.
I made some of the food for the shower.
This is a Chicken Snow Pea Bow Tie Pasta Salad.
Great for a crowd.
I seasoned and roasted a package of chicken cutlets, about 3 lbs I guess. Two 12 oz boxes of bowties, a large onion minced, celery diced, and shaved carrots. I guess about a lb of snow peas.
I used mayo, cider vinegar, powdered mustard, orange juice, pepper and an envelope of Geo Washington seasonings, which is like a granular chicken base.
I know, no exact amounts, but I never use a recipe for any kind of salad! You don't need to, taste as you go and adjust! Salads are so easy!
And since this is Let's Dish, check out this LARGE pale green cabbage bowl from WSonoma Outlet. Marked $48.00, I got it for $11.00. It held a lot!
I gave one to my dil too, but I left the 48.00 tag on, lol! (She knows I would never pay that!)
I hope no one who paid $48.00 is reading this!
This post is getting long, so I will show what else I made another time.
Ellen at The Happy Wonderer had the most clicks last week at 63!
Lots were in the 50's, so I thank you all for being such good party goers and visiting so many entrants!
Thanks so much for visiting me too!
What do you have for us this week?
Same rules, ONE link ,dish related, no word ID allowed.
I appreciate you using your blog name or your name instead of the post name, but you can do both, there is room. It helps me keep it straight when I am visiting.
Please link back to Let's Dish in your post, and I'd love to have you leave a comment. Most of you are kind enough to do so, thanks! I try to visit all the entrants who leave a comment.
