A Mexicana Tablescape!!

Ok! So, I had these BEAUTIFUL saucers that I wanted to use for a Cinco De Mayo Tablescape! However, outside of the tablecloth well......the beautiful saucers were all I had to work with so needless to say there was no Cinco De Mayo Tablescape.

While out thrifting this weekend I came across some really good deals and after going home and looking at everything again "a lightbulb came on!!" with the items I had purchased, I had the rest of the Cinco De Mayo Tablescape! (just a little too late)

So, I set to work washing all the new items and pulling stuff out of the drawers and cupboards and Wa-Lah! We have a beautiful setting just waiting for some tortillas, rice, salsa and chips!!

Let me know what you think!!

This is a hand painted tablecloth that I purchased in TN last year for $10.00!
I just loved the rich colors and the pattern, this is it's first debut!!

Gold chargers from Walmart 

These red metal chargers were one of my finds this weekend. I purchased them from Savers and they were a set of 4 for $4.00. They are from Walmart and were originally $3.97 each! I plan to use them for the 4th of July!  

Another find were these pretty Home Trends buttery yellow plates purchased at the Goodwill for $1.00 each!

And now for those beautiful saucers I was telling you about! I found these at Savers several months ago and they were $1.99 each. On the back they say TableTops Gallery, Italiano, Hand Painted. I just love the deep rich colors and had to splurge to buy them! (very well worth it)

I brought out the Golden Bouquet Flatware for this setting.

Stemware was purchased at the Dollar Tree

Napkin Rings are Better Homes and Gardens from Walmart 

Well, I think it's time to get those tortillas going!!
Thank You so much for stopping by and I hope your day is Plum Perfect!!

  2. I love this! Looks very similar to Kyrgyz style designs. Kyrgyz style has lots of yellow and red colors, you and my sister are just alike! Very much miss you and love you!

  3. Nice and festive...very nicely done, Aledia. The Italian saucers are the perfect piece to sit on the buttery yellow dinner plates. Love the table linens.
