Cinco de Mayo Tablescape
A bright and colorful Cinco de Mayo tablescape seemed like just the thing to share today. I know most of us will not be celebrating this year with family and friends, but at least I know we can pick up take away from the most wonderful Mexican restaurant! This tablescape was the last one I set in our condominium in Florida before moving into our current house.

I was torn between staying with the colors of the Mexican flag and going all fiesta colored, but I found these fun dishes at Walmart, and knew I was going to incorporate the bright colors.
If I was going to host a Cinco de Mayo party this year, I would go with these fun plates!
I knew when I saw this fun red tray by Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart, I knew this would be the base for my centerpiece. These tiny pinatas were found tucked away on a shelf at Michael’s. One is a little donkey and the other is a bull. I added some tiny colorful bottles and used one bunch of inexpensive silk flowers, tucking some into the bottles and nestled the rest around the feet of my pinatas.If you were looking for a fun tray this year, this one from Walmart would fit the theme perfectly!
Red salad plates topped my colorful dishes which each held a green napkin folded into a square. On top of the napkins I tucked a pair of cute toy maracas or an artificial pepper. I have a few days still to hunt for some tiny sombreros which is what I thought would make adorable place cards. The table is set and colorful baskets are lined with bright yellow napkins ready to be filled with crunchy chips to enjoy along with the other Mexican specialties I will be cooking! With icy margaritas what could be better? Wishing you a happy fiesta!
I hope you celebrate and perhaps set a fun Cinco de Mayo tablescape and nosh on chips and salsa!
