Cinco de Mayo Tablescape

Hola!  I am ready for Cinco de Mayo! Well, almost ready - the table is set.

This will be a more casual late lunch, early dinner for my family.
I would have liked to have fresh flowers but I will be traveling for work all week and my boys are not real good about taking care of the fresh flowers - so I settled for some that are guaranteed not to croak while I am gone!
I made some tissue paper flower napkin rings to top my Dollar Tree plates.
I bought the runner at Kohls and the two pitchers at Marshalls. The bowls I used as planters are from JCPenney - only $2 each.  I added my little moss frogs just for fun.

I just need to go to the grocery store now and we will be ready for our fiesta!

I am linking to the Following Parties:


  1. Love this! I seriously want that runner - it is perfect! The napkin rings are so clever. Home run - thanks for sharing!

  2. Your paper flower napkin rings absolutely blew me away! What a great idea. I will be lucky to set the table and have some great Tex Mex food. Everything is so pretty and I am definitely inspired.

  3. I love this tablescape! I also have the $ Tree plates, love that store. Visiting from Let's Dish. xo

  4. Casual it may be, but it is warm and friendly, just the kind of table at which I enjoy being. Artificial flowers are so real looking these days that it's good to always have a few on hand for those days nothing is blooming in the yard or you don't have time to buy some.

  5. Happy Cinco de Mayo. I am slow to read the tables this week, but am enjoying them on the weekend. Love the handmade napkin rings, and colorful dollar store plates. What a find. I'm sure your family was glad to have you back to celebrate wildly. Thanks for posting. ~CJ

  6. What a cute fun table! Thanks so much for visiting. I have to tell you, I am so impressed with your napkin rings. So cute! I always admire people who can come up with such original ideas.

  7. I love the colors, so festive! The napkin rings are adorable!
    Thanks so much for linking to Let's Dish!
