CINCO DE MAYO TABLE SETTING

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  It's a festive holiday in Mexico and for us in the states, it's an excuse to join in the festivities, eating and drinking Mexican inspired dishes and drinks.  

While I won't be decorating my table this day, I wanted to create a look (if I had decorated).  For this look, I chose vibrant  colors fitting for a Cinco De Mayo celebration.

Vibrant colors like these are perfect for a Cinco de Mayo table.

 What good is a decorated table without a few drinks?  Here are a couple that I'd like to try:
