Finally, Tablescape for Cinco de Mayo!

Obviously I need to do more Mexican themed tablescapes
with my plethora of tablecloths!

I finally chose this Startex vintage tablecloth,
which has great colors and graphics.

So many colors on this table, it's almost dizzying!

Isn't is funny how the man on the burro has no face?
Thrifted tea lights for a little ambiance.

This sweet Senorita vintage tea towel was made by Broderie,
a quality brand coveted by vintage linen collectors. 

You can see why, she is "muy bonita"!

I used black dollar store plates, topped by Hazel Atlas glass plates.

The striped glasses are vintage Anchor Hocking, recent yard sale find,
$2 for a set of 6!

Mr. Retro found the pepper dishes at a thrift store near his workplace. 
Am I so jealous happy he gets to stop there after work. 
Also, jar of dried peppers from last years garden.

Chiquita banana Salt & Pepper shakers!
Made by Clay Art of CA.  A gift from Mr. Retro years ago. 

We were having  dinner a new retro themed restaurant and they were part of their decor. 
I was really coveting admiring them.  He went back to the the restaurant
the next day  and talked them into selling them to him! 

 So cute & retro, and surely will be in future tablescapes.

Sangria anyone?
(with thrift store glasses)
