Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Tablecloth & Napkin

Enjoy your day with good food, good decor and good friends! 

Plan to celebrate? There are lots of good recipes out there for great Mexican food. Pioneer Woman has them all in one spot! House 8810 has a great Fiesta tablecloth and coordinating napkin. These are also great ways to kick off the summer. Lay your tablecloth out on the patio table, serve some frozen drinks, sit back, relax and soak up the sun!

Need a history lesson on Cinco de Mayo

From Wikipedia: "Cinco de Mayo is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla. The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War. In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. Contrary to widespread popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day, the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico, which occurs on September 16th."
