The first picture below is of the tablecloth pattern and the second picture has the tablecloth pattern and the Talavera plate. In my opinion, they looked like they had similar elements in design. What do you think?
The Talavera plate reminds me so much of the beautiful blues that I was so shocked to see as we walked on the beach in Cancun, Mexico. Don't you think their hand-painted work reflects the variation of the blues in their surroundings?
This view from the hotel balcony shows a greater variation of the blue colors, especially in contrast to the orange tiled roof.
The white puffy clouds seems to intensify the blues and seems to mirror the waves rolling in on the shoreline.
I love the fun look of the pinwheel folded napkin.
There is something so happy about the color orange. These oranges make a simple yet attractive centerpiece.
Care for a tasty Mimosa Sunset? It can be made with alcohol or without. So fruity and refreshing and it does look like a setting sun. Pour into glasses in this order: 4 oz. of champagne (or ginger ale), 2 oz. orange juice, and top with a dash of raspberry syrup. Garnish with raspberries and/or orange slice.
The festive design of the various plates reminds me of the beautiful and lively Mexican culture and it's people.
Another cheerful Talavera plate. The contrasting blue and orange colors really compete for attention.
This plate is the one from Lagos, Portugal. I can taste the Baked Salmon with Piri Piri Sauce that I had at one of the cozy sidewalk cafes in Lagos.
The Portuguese plate reflects the charm of the quaint city of Lagos (below).
I love the cozy, narrow streets.
Again, the orange tiled roof contrasts against the white of the buildings and the sapphire blue skies.
Casual and fun ......and all from treasured memories.
