Fiesta de Mayo!

In honor of Cinco de Mayo,
I'm having a Fiesta! Ole'!





I bought the bandanas turned napkins 2 for $1
and the colored felt design cut-outs
 5 per pkg at Dollar Tree.



The cactus stem tequila glasses and black salsa
bowls also came from Dollar Tree,
purchases made a while ago.




Christmas candle-holders, the perfect Fiesta color!



The "tablecloth" is a blanket I bought years ago that
now lives in the trunk of my car.
Ever at the ready for impromptu picnics
or outdoor concerts!



The hand-painted dishes are actually a
"french country" collection.
I mixed the patterns up a bit more than I
normally would. Added to the other
elements they seem to shout Mexico! 




Okay, I'm off with sombrero in hand for a little Siesta!

  12. Very festive, Dena! Great how your dishes fit right in! Great idea to use bandana's as napkins ~ that would probably work well at BBQ's this Summer, too.
