Ole! Happy Cinco de Mayo

A table I set on our deck off the study with vibrant colors. Mexican food is a favorite.  My husband could eat a whole bowl of Quacamole.

Sunflower dishes are so cute and colorful.  My fiesta flatware goes nicely with all of the colors.

 The glasses are so fun!  I won them from Novica on a blog giveaway years ago.

In case you haven't heard, Novica is associated with National Geographic and provides artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity

Sombrero anyone?
The flowers are from our local Safeway.  I wanted something bright and cheery.
This vase is a show stopper.  I bought it years ago at Home Goods.

 I decked out the side console with this lovely pineapple floral centerpiece and candle lanterns.

One of my favorite Mexican dishes is Chimichangas. I am using the recipe from the Food Network using chicken.  When we go out to dinner, I ordered the Chili Verde Chimichanga.

I am having a strawberry margarita with my meal. We have this Margaritaville machine in the pool cabana. I love the fruity margaritas. The Quacamole recipe  I used is here. It has 7,078 ratings.

  16. Very colorful fiesta Linda! You have the perfect spot for sipping margaritas and eating chimichangas!

  17. You always have such beautiful and inviting tables!

  18. ¡Ay Linda!, que mesa más bonita has puesto, cálida y alegre a la vez, me gustan todos los elementos que has utilizado y como siempre con mucha elegancia. Admiro el frondoso jardín que se ve al fondo, Yo también soy amante del Guacamole que suelo preparar, no conozco las chimichangas, ahora indagaré sobre ellas. Ni siquiera sabía que hubiera unas máquinas especiales para hacer Margaritas. Y tampoco sabía de la Fiesta del 5 de Mayo, he buscado y he visto que es una fiesta mejicana que celebra la victoria de los mejicanos sobre los franceses en la Batalla Puebla. ¡Cuando aprendo contigo. Cuidaros mucho, un abrazo grande
