A Mexican Fiesta!

Happy Thursday Everyone!
Once again Susan from Between Naps on the Porch, brings us
all together to enjoy one another's tablescapes!

Last week we had some special guests for dinner. I had received an email from an American living in Kiev, requesting Information for her upcoming move to Berlin! To make a very long story short-it turns out she is best friends with a college friend of mine! And not only is she moving to Berlin, but 3 others out of the same circle of friends will, by the end of the summer all be living here!!!! It truly is a small world. ANYHOW, in order to get to know them we invited 2 of the 3 families to dinner.(One family is already here-in temporary housing, the second family was here to check out the schools) My college friend had told me that Mexican is a favorite of theirs, so out came the tortilla press, the avocados and of course the margarita glasses!!! I did the table a little different than the last time as you can tell by the pictures. In order to seat 11 people I had to extend the table-no tablecloth in the right color, so off to Ikea I went! For 9 euros I got enough material to cover the table. Needless to say we had a wonderful evening! The food was good(thankfully!), the homemade margaritas were fantastic-thanks to a friends recipe and my husband making them, the children behaved, the cats enjoyed the extra time to play outside and the best of all? I think I found 2 new friends!

Be sure to stop by tommorow for the menue and some of the recipes!
