Cinco de Mayo - Fun and Color

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!
We are celebrating another holiday that we really have no place celebrating, but we are along for the fun!


I just love the colors!

As you can probably tell, I pulled every bright colored dish I had out of the cupboard and put it them on my hutch!  
I made the paper Mexican fiesta flag bunting on my Silhouette and just strung it up with some orange hemp twine.
 
Now don't get all excited about the fact that my paper flags are hanging directly over my candles, because if you notice - most of my candles are never actually lit!!  I think I have mentioned before that my dad was a fireman and strictly prohibited candles being burnt in our house growing up.  So as most dad's have instilled a certain kind of fear in us, I don't usually burn my candles.  
Nothing says Fiesta more than adding some rick rack to some plain napkins!  That is like a party in my napkin drawer!


So Ole!  Hoping you can put some color and fun into your days!

  6. I hope your Cinco de Mayo was a fun day even if you're not accustomed to celebrating it every year. I have it in my blood, so I'm all over it every year...except this year! I've just had a tough time getting all the food and decor prepared. I'm slowing down. Oh, no!!!!!! :-)

    I'll admit I did a double-take when I saw the banner hanging over the candles, but I was prepared to just calmly dial 911 and move on! It's all for the sake of beautiful table decor and colorful dining...even if that dining experience turns out to be flame red & yellow!!! :-)

    Have a great week and a very happy Mother's Day weekend!

Kudos to you! Keep it upThis was a definitely extremely superior publish. enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a excellent grasp to the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from more than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so significantly. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.so much superb info on here, :http://guidemesupplements.com/brainfinity/
