I love this fun weekend and all good things colliding at once. Cinco De Mayo, the Kentucky Derby and the Wells Fargo Championship (a big golf tournement for Charlotteans).  If I were planning a party, here are my favorite ideas via trusty old Pinterest!


Cinco De Mayo Party…

a yummy jalapeño margarita…

great paper flowers for decor…

bright floors and lanterns…

a wonderful setup


happy zinnias in a orange pot..

somberos for each guest as a party favor…

cute straw flowers…

a piñata cake…

piñata cookies for additional favors…

Guacamole and chips with peach salsa…

I would be in these fabulous Old Gringo boots…

a festive yellow tunic…

with a vintage conch belt…


On to the next party…

A mint julep is the signature cocktail of course!


Mint Julep cupcakes would be great late night…

fried chicken and pecan pie fits the bill….
