I've got four tablescapes to do the next 5 days, so I really haven't focused on any food. Not that I haven't cooked, I just haven't cooked according to FF meme theme. But I should be good for the next set of Fridays.
Today, I give you again inspiration menus for Cinco de Mayo. Our Cinco de Mayo dinner will be done then so watch out for that.
Ok, so let's put on our imaginary Mexican Hats and sit down on a glorious Cinco de Mayo tablescape...
The food's not quite ready yet so let me offer you some- Virgin Strawberry Margarita! This hostess does not do alcohol, sorry... but I promise it's just as refreshing!
While sipping our margaritas, let's admire the grand bouquet of Mexican Hat flowers freshly picked off a nearby field.
Let's pass up the time with some pinata hitting! Here's one of Texas, one state that borders Mexico.
Ok, that was great! "Food's ready!" Let's see what we have...
Mmmm... some beef tacos! Note that it's not ground beef, it is thin and sliced...
I added some extra lime juice in the filling! ;-)
(Epicurious.com)Getting full, you say? C'mon, you have more room for some fresh, golden, ripe Mexican mangoes. Am I right, am I right, huh? ;-)
Alright, let's wash it all down with some Horchata! Aaahhh.... All done!
Who wants to watch soccer?
Ok, slowly... take off your hats and open your eyes... You're back in front of your keyboard about to leave me a great comment.... LOL
Did you enjoy our Mexican feast?
Thanks Gollum for hosting this great theme today!
TABLESCAPING IDEA: ("Brain" is craving Mexican food!) It's fun to do a tablescape for a cultural holiday with your stamp on it. Not all the accessories have to be authentic. Base everything on the colors and you can put together a table for a lot less and come up with the same effect! If you want authenticity, start researching menus and recipes you can do. Then shop for your tabletop goodies on clearance right after the holiday and you'll be ready with everything you need next year! Like I mentioned in my sidebar, under "Holiday Holla", choose which holiday you want to set a nice table on then start looking!"
