South of the Border

It's time to break out the sombreros, shake your maracas,  drink a few margaritas and enjoy some fine Mexican food. Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby fall on the same date this year so I'm celebrating a little early this year.  

Cinco de Mayo tablescape. 

I used assorted silk flowers to make the candle rings. 

The icy blue illuminated mercury glass candle holders  in the centerpiece are by Valerie Parr Hill. 

A few years ago one of my Learjet pilots returned from a charter flight to Mexico with this beautiful vase.   It works perfectly on the table filled with silk flowers.  

The Blooming Cactus beaded napkins rings are from Pier1 this year.  

I used bandanas from Hobby Lobby as napkins.  

The small pinata was purchases at Hobby Lobby several years ago. 

The sombreros are from Pier1.  They were part of their Day of the Dead collection last Fall.  

The sombrero wine charms are currently in store at Pier1. 

The server with maracas and somreros.  The Calienta Fiesta platter is from Party City and in stock this season.  

Overhead view of the table. 

The plate stack.  I used a serape as the table cloth.  The turquoise chargers are from Tuesday Morning.  The goldenrod dinner plates is from Dollar Tree a few years ago.   The red salad is from Pier1.  The top plate is from Pier1 this season. 

The appetizer plates are from Pier1 this season.  They are not showing online, but were in store last week. They have a great supply of Fiesta/Cinco de Mayo items this year. 

 Happy Cinco de Mayo!
