Nothing says “fiesta like there’s no mañana” more than Cinco de Mayo tablescapes. One thing they all have in common: COLOR! In addition to all the colorful & yummy Mexican foods, colors explode from piñatas, tissue paper flowers, serape table runners, and Talavera dishes. You can’t have too much color on Cinco de mayo tablescapes!
I was really hoping to have a Cinco de Mayo party at Cantasita this year. Construction delays kiboshed my plans . So I thought I’d start getting ideas for next year’s Cinco de Mayo tablescape!
I think it’s important to set the tone before guests walk through the front door. I found these fun & festive wreaths on Etsy:
CINCO DE MAYO TABLESCAPES
This table setting has a youthful, feminine vibe, don’t you think? I could see this for a Cinco de Mayo ladies night.
Perfect for lunch or a casual dinner on the patio.
I love the patterned plates, striped placemats, and the warm colors of this table setting! The flowers in a rustic vase surrounded by veggies is a brilliant touch.
What’s so wonderful about colorful table runners is that you can use it with many color schemes. Here is a tablescape that uses bright pastels but it could easily work with warm colors as well.
The small potted succulents and cacti are a nice touch.
Not only for Cinco de Mayo, this tablescape can work for summer parties too.
Papel picado banners and tissue paper flowers add a lot of decorating punch for very little money. A fun DIY project for kids!
These clever napkin rings can also serve as party favors.
For evening fiestas, colorful paper lanterns cast a warm glow and are very inexpensive.
Potted cacti and small vases of flowers along a Mexican blanket make a lovely centerpiece for Cinco de Mayo tablescapes.
Thank goodness I have a whole year to come up with a Cinco de Mayo tablescape! Right now I’d have a hard time picking a favorite. Did any of these inspire you? Feliz Cinco de Mayo!!
