I must admit that I look forward to May 5th each year. I know it's a holiday to celebrate the Mexican's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla May 5, 1862. This holiday is mostly observed in the United States to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride. For me it's a chance to set a fun table and make a Tex-Mex meal.
I started this afternoon with a very old tablecloth I got from my Mom. She got this in Mexico probably early 60's
I know these pictures are a little dark but I was trying to capture the true colors of this tablescape
I pulled out vintage Fiesta and Homer Laughlin Harlequin dinnerware
The bright colors go so well with the Mexican theme
The green glass bowl was used to add another texture to the table.
I used my old yellow handled flatware
Vintage glasses for ice tea
This creamer will have extra salsa to add to our Taco Casserole
These cactus votive holders were a recent thrift store find
A closer look at the design on this cloth
I think this might have been a small planter for a cactus but with a small tealight inside
It adds a glow to the table
Do you celebrate Cinco De Mayo?
I'm joining these fun parties
