Let's Dish ~ Santa Fe Setting for Two




Let's Dish 


~ A Simple Santa Fe Inspired Tablesetting ~


I shared this table last year,


 but in light of my recent trip to Santa Fe 


I decided to feature it again.  


I hope you don't mind.







As the sun sets on the beautiful

Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Santa Fe . . .






The table is set for an impromptu dinner for two.





Candlelight and perhaps a zesty Margarita on the rocks.






The vibrant woven threads of a Mexican serape,

Talavera pottery, and flatware with a "twist"

provides interest and texture to the glass top table.






White cotton napkins tucked in small bowls,

one mustard yellow - the other rusty red . . .







Add a pop of bright color to the white dinner plates

rimmed in indigo and topped with fanciful floral salad plates.






A quiet spot for evening 


conversation with one's companion . . .







As each reflect on the day spent enjoying

the sights, sounds, and flavors of Santa Fe.


~ Tip and Tidbits ~


When you find yourself with the need to set an impromptu table, 

look around you for inspiration.  A tray of candles can easily 

substitute for flowers and offer beautiful ambiance.  No table cloth 

or placemats handy - simply use a textile such as this Mexican 

serape, or pull a scarf or throw into service.
