Welcome to a fun colorful Cinco de Mayo celebration!
This table almost looks like I took the brightest crayons out of my box to choose my color pallet!
I started out with the same runner and napkin rings that I used last year. But from there I tried to pick out more colors from tissue paper flowers that I had made, so I went with more red, turquoise and orange, lots of orange!
These are the same napkins I used on my last post with the Moss and Orange- but they take on a very different look this week.
I must have swapped, and swapped out again, different combinations of plates and finally settled on the red plates, turquoise fiesta luncheon plates and the multi colored bowls.
I did very little editing to these photos, I was so happy that the colors came out so great - even though the turquoise almost looks blue in this picture.
Was it possible to add even more color?
When I saw these three little lanterns packages together as a set- I knew that this was my centerpiece.
I got a bar tending lesson on how to properly salt a rim of a Margarita glass. The secret is the use of coarse Kosher Salt!
So here is to a fun celebration on Cinco de Mayo!
