Today’s tablescape is fitting since Sunday, May 5th, is Cinco de Mayo day. In the United States, this day is observed as a celebration of Mexican pride and heritage.
I started with a serape runner from Pottery Barn. I love all the colors! Since I only had two of these striped plates, I alternated them with a solid yellow from the Dollar Tree.
I purchased a lot of these pepper bowls from the Dollar General at the end of last summer for 25 cents each!
The plates, woven chargers, orange napkins and black flatware were all thrifty finds.
Both the smoky glass and the cactus margarita glass are from the Dollar Tree.
The centerpiece was the last thing to go on the table because I didn’t know what to use! I thought of Alycia’s lovely table using succulents and decided to “borrow” her idea! To see her lovely table, click here. I recently purchased several but hadn’t planted them yet, so I just inserted them into a basket. I wrapped them in some burlap to cover the pots.
I had some pepper swizzle sticks that I inserted as well.
Cactus salt and pepper shakers were also 25 cents at the Dollar General!
Have a happy Cinco de Mayo! Thanks for stopping by!
