Cinco de Mayo Margarita Party

Betsy P By Betsy P  in Cinco de Mayo


Party Recap

My husband Roger loves preparing Mexican dishes, especially recipes from Rick Bayless's Mexican Everyday cook book. (Roger is a fabulous cook!) So, we wanted to plan a party where guests could enjoy some of our favorite Mexican dishes along with traditional favorites like chips, salsa, queso, and MARGARITAS, of course!

I was inspired for the party design when I found some Better Homes and Gardens party ware at Walmart in marigold orange, goldenrod yellow, and lime green that I absolutely loved. I based the color palette and flower design around a few of the items from this collection that I purchased, such as vinyl tablecloths, a serving tray, and some melamine plates that my husband transformed into a two-tiered tray (see picture of limes). One of the tablecloths was used as the backdrop for our buffet. I literally carried one of the plates around in my purse for months, so I could match napkins, ribbon, etc.
