Saturday is Cinco de Mayo, and while it is not my holiday nor am I of Mexican descent, I do enjoy a fiesta! For me, a fiesta is all about the bright, happy colors all working together, as much as it is about tasty food and bright colored drinks.
The real leaves are from a bitter orange tree that was in my dentist's office. She cut some branches for me and said I could try to root them in water.
Bright yellow Gerber daisies from Trader Joe's. My little statue is actually a Native American doll, but she fills in nicely here. The cute donkey cart I purchased here.
The dishes and wine glasses are from the Dollar Tree. Place mats, napkins, and napkin rings are from Bed, Bath and Beyond. Other glasses are from Christmas Tree Shop. Flatware is from Ross.
I plan on eating at a wonderful Mexican restaurant on Saturday, but if I was inclined to cook, I would be serving guacamole and tortilla chips, steak fajitas, shrimp tacos, rice and to wash it all down, margaritas, and fresh fruit sangria. Dessert would be flan or coconut ice cream.
I love Gerber daisies. Here is one that I am going to plant outside. Yard work is getting the best of me, and I have not been in a good mood because of it. :/ (Achy knees, achy back = grumpy gardener!)
I am "tardy for the party" but I am joining Kathleen for Let's Dish and The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.
