Dinner Time Needs A Bit of Color
We all need a little more color and inspiration in our days, don’t you think so? Personally, I have always loved the bright colors of Fiestaware at dinnertime. What about you?
Consider setting a colorful table with your own Fiestaware or with place settings like the ones shown below. It will make your dinner table a little happier.
Add toppings like diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sour cream, jalapeno peppers, onion, and avocados to colorful bowls and place in the center of the table within arms reach so everyone can help themselves to their favorite toppings.
Consider making Mexican flan in a beautiful dish like this one
