Desigining a Table Setting for My 'American Adobo' Filipino Dinner

For my 'American Adobo' Filipino dinner, I want the table setting to be very colorful and tropical. From dinners past, I already have several items, including some flat, woven bamboo baskets and placemats, several wooden serving bowls, and lots of little generic dishes for condiments and small servings. And I think my basic white everyday dishes will make up the rest. However, as always, it's fun to go poking around in my local thrift shops in search of interesting additions to my repertoire.
