Cinco de Mayo

Having a Cinco de Mayo celebration this weekend? But feeling a little under-inspired with what to do for a Cinco De Mayo tablescape? I’m here to help with that!

My sister Worthington Avenue and I planned this sabroso Cinco de Mayo party themed “Baja Brunch” to spice up this spring day and pretend we’re soaking up the sun in Mexico! For this particular outing with my darling sister Cami (and her super adorable baby girl!) we found colorful everything and thew ourselves this little Cinco de Mayo Picnic we called “Baja Brunch.” We invited our photographer Diana Putnam Photography too! I found two of these colorful Mexican blankets and talavera dish on Olivera Street. The bright orange pillow is from Nanny Goat Pillows (I sewed the other two pillows myself !) Cami found this darling picnic basket and colorful plate ($1.50) at Target #targetdoesitagain! Photographer Diana Putnam (who’s actually from Mexico!) made this beautiful drink and plate of berries and bell peppers! This darling vase … Read More
