Gatherings + Cinco de Mayo

3 May

In honor of a valid reason to eat chips, salsa, and all the tacos you can hold, I join you in celebrating Cinco De Mayo this weekend! I’ve gathered a few things—starting with these Hacienda Melamine Plates from Anthropologie—inspired by this festive holiday.

These stairs are only the tiniest sneak peek into a lovely Spanish Colonial home featured on Houzz. The work is that of Tim Barber, LTD Architecture.

This Avocado Mint Candle (also from Anthro) is the freshest candle yet. I love the scent and the packaging.

Trader Joe’s is hands-down my favorite stop for fresh flowers. Using cans is a festive and fun way to spice up your arrangements. Here’s an entire post dedicated to a fiesta decor.

I’m looking for the perfect drink dispenser. Here are two faves:

Glass Beverage Dispenser CB2World Market Savannah Drink Dispenser

First, a glass dispenser available at CB2. I am also a fan of the Savannah embossed drink dispenser from World Market. If you’re looking for something acrylic, Target has good, affordable options.

And, finally, Larissa gave me this healthy and yummy recipe for fish tacos last week. She wrote about it on the LifeWay Women blog today. I made this for dinner twice last week…. It’s that good.

Enjoy your weekend!
