Cinco de Mayo Tablescape CoronaRita Style!

We are going to be celebrating Cinco de Mayo CoronaRita Style this year!
I felt it was unfortunate that one of my favorite beverages has had an identity crisis through out this pandemic - so I decided to celebrate it in fine style.
One of these small bottles of Corona is called a Coronita, they are just 7 ounce Corona beers,
and when they are turned upside down in a margarita - they make  CoronaRitas!
It just seems fitting to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year this way.
Since the only shopping I have been doing is at the grocery store - all of my centerpiece was from my last trip to the grocery store.
They had just a few of these small potted Zinnia plants.  I paired them up with a selection from the fresh veggie section and threw in a few avocados for good measure.
A colorful selection of dishes makes nacho chips look very festive.
We are all just making due with what we have these days, but nothing says you still can't have a little fun!
Even though some of the restrictions are beginning to be lifted, we should all proceed with caution and continue our physical distancing as much as possible and Please, be considerate and wear a mask in public places.  You may just be saving someone's life.

These are difficult times, but I hope you are able to stay up beat and find ways to still enjoy life as we know it now and hopefully things will continue to improve.
Stay safe and healthy.

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
