Last week we had some dear friends over for dinner. They are moving to Korea– good for them but sad for us. Knowing that Latin food is hard to come by in the east, we settled on a Mexican menu. As usual, my husband was in charge of the food and I was in charge of the decorations.
I got some great potted succulents at Home Depot. They were already in those beautiful turquoise pots. Then I got some bright fuchsia flowers from our local flower guy. The runner was a beautiful embroidered piece I picked up in Guatemala a few years ago. It really added nice color to our white table!
I didn’t have tons of time, so I hand wrote the place cards and the menu in a matching sharpie color (of course I have all the colors on hand!).
I, unfortunately, didn’t get pictures of every course, but here are the fish tacos and churros. Yum!
We had a great time– and think our friends did too!
