Viva! Cinco de Mayo

Hola Senoritas!  Here in Atlanta, this morning is a tad bit chilly, but it looks like it will be a beautiful day to celebrate the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.  And it sure does help us forget about any twinge of chill in the air when this holiday's traditions include delicious food, fun colors, vibrant music, and tasty cocktails!

Although, sadly, we are not hosting a soiree today (Bunco-centered or not), these beautiful images and party inspirations sure made us wish we were!!  Enjoy... and after you do, why don't you go enjoy a tasty margarita in a pretty salt-rimmed glass?  Yum!

Vintage castanets - what could be finer?
