Over 30 Fun Cinco de Mayo Finds

I love entertaining with a theme and lucky for me, the colorful Mexican celebration Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner (a big deal where I grew up in California!). Fun fact: though it’s commonly mistaken as the day of Mexican independence, the holiday actually commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Below, find some of my favorite finds for a memorable Mexican fiesta (ginger margaritas, please!). READ POST

Easter is next month (well, technically it’s Sunday, April 1) so I thought I’d share my favorite pastel decor finds for those celebrating. Also, it’s a freezing 32 degrees here in Copenhagen and I can’t help but dream of spring. As you’ll see, this Easter I’m all about setting the table with gingham, rattan, and lettuceware. Enjoy!
