Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone! (As if we need an excuse to eat delicious Mexican food and indulge in a margarita… or three!) In our minds, Cinco de Mayo is essentially the kick-off to festive summer events, with Mother’s Day (don’t forget about Mom!) and Memorial Day right around the corner, so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share our favorite ways to set a bright, colorful and inviting table. Dust off that patio furniture and let’s get started!
Go Bright with Table Linens
Set a fun and cheerful tone for your festivities by incorporating brightly-hued table linens. A colorful embroidered table runner is the perfect anchor for any table scape!
Play up accent colors with embroidered linen napkins in coordinating hues. So long, paper napkins!
