Coton Colors Celebration

I love celebrating Cinco De Mayo. The weather is typically gorgeous in May, and it’s a celebration that calls for a bright and fun table. And who doesn’t love a reason to sip a delicious margarita and nibble on homemade guacamole?

Our persimmon ruffle salad plates are my go-to when I’m looking to bring some life to my tablescape. These plates really transform a drab table into a fab table with zero effort. Add in some colorful serving trays and dipping bowls and you’re set! {And if you look closely at our soiree, you’ll spy a couple pieces from our Spanish collection which is launching soon! You guys are going to be head-over-heels for these pieces.}

I just couldn’t talk about celebrating Cinco De Mayo without sharing my absolute favorite margarita recipe. Ole’!

1 lime cut in wedges

Kosher salt, optional

1 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice

The juice of 4 limes
