Since the wooden cantina sign is atop the burlap runner down the center of the table, the “centerpiece” is located at one end

    Ay, Chihuahua! This Cantina is just stellar!!! I love the sombreros and the maracas, they are the perfect touches for celebrating Cinco De Mayo! I am loving the Bloody Mary glasses and the Cantina sign too.

    You’re ready for a fiesta Jenna! I adore your painted cantina sign hanging in your bar area and on the table as a runne… the painted bottles, adorable maracas and sombreros too 🙂

    OMG I’m thinking Barbies would love your little patio set, it’s too cute! I said to the boys today “next Sunday we’ll do Cinco de Mayo, do you want burritos or enchiladas?”. The oldest… “I don’t know what that is but burritos sound good”. Just a glimpse into my world… Have a great week:@)

  4. This is FABULOUS! Honestly, I do love anything associated with Cinco de Mayo, but yours is really special. Those sombreros on the backs of every chair is just icing on the cake. So clever, and fun!
