Happy Cinco De Mayo!!  

I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch 
for Tablescaping Thursdy I put this tablescape together on Wednesday for  my Honey and I to enjoy a lovely Cinco de Mayo dinner!

I started with this tablecloth my Mom gave me
It's pretty old and she got it in Mexico years ago

I decided to highlight the greens and golds
 I started with off-white charger plates
Added Harlequin dinner plates and salad plates
I used yellow handled silverware and a napkin that also added red to the mix of warm colors
When I don't have cut flowers to add to my table
I will often use one of my house plants
Here ivy just adds that lovely green to the table
 I found this very cute candle holder at
The Classy Flea.   I was not able to join the Atlanta bloggers last Saturday for the shopping event, bud did get over there on Sunday and fell in love with this little guy.

I sat him on this green basket to give him some height!

This oil & vinegar bottle was found when we did our Tennessee Pickin Outing,  you can check out that post Here 
Notice the cute Salt & Pepper shakers hanging on the side!

I added these green wine glasses found at a yard sale

Hope you enjoy your Cinco de Mayo dinner!

Hi Linda,
Great cinco table. Love that little guy taking a siesta. Great colors and I think I am having a craving for some enchiladas ;)
I also checked out the pyrex post. Wow, you have quite the collection. Love those agua ones...all of them.
Enjoy your day.


Your table is perfect for the holiday. Very festive!
