Happy Cinco de Mayo! Hello 2020 giving us a May the 5th on a Tuesday! Taco Tuesday is the real deal this year! At least 2020 has one thing going for it! But here we are and I thought it might be fun to do a quick and neutral Cinco de Mayo setup today for you guys and I have included a recipe too! Margaritas are my new go to drink if you didn’t know and I’m not afraid to share that. It’s margarita Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday around here anymore…
While I do love a good homemade margarita, my house is hell lately so I’ve been falling back on the good ol’ pre-made and premixed light version from Jose Cuervo. It’s delicious and not too bad in the calorie division. Plus, no extra dishes to clean besides my glass and that may or may not be disposable these days too. But if you are looking for to make your own pitcher, here’s my favorite recipe for homemade margaritas!
While we don’t usually decorate for this fun day, I thought a quick cute and $0 to me tablescape or drink table might be a fun challenge for myself. I didn’t want to get too crazy with colors so I stuck to neutrals and honestly, everything on this table I already had in my home. Which is funny because last night I was making a target pickup cart of cactus balloons and then I was like why not try with what we have.
I started with the cactus picture. From my bathroom.
Then I grabbed some of my old glassware that’s just chillin’ in the garage.
After that, I picked a lantern from a shelf and added limes, lemons, and disco ornaments.
From there, I grabbed any other neutrals I could find including wooden bead garland I made for Olive’s Nursery forever ago and a long wooden dish you will find on most of my tablescapes.
When creating a tablescape remember dimension and texture. Both will help you achieve a more interesting setup. For this one, I tried to stick to the rule of threes by having three items on either side of the table and added texture with different materials.
And you need a snack with margartas right? So why not make your own mock churros?
These were a huge hit with the girls and actually pretty darn easy. I also added these printable flags from Make Life Lovely just for a little extra fun.
What you’ll need:
Crescent Rolls – 1-2 packages (I used one package and was able to make 8-10)
Melted Butter – 2-3 tablespoons
Cinnamon Sugar Mix (you can totally make your own)
Roll out the crescent rolls keeping two together instead of separating them all. If you use one package, you will have 4 pieces to use for this.
Lay two pieces out and add melted butter first. Then generously add cinnamon and sugar mix.
Top with the other two pieces and pinch as best you can the edges.
*I had a hard time with this so tried to roll the tops and bottoms*
Then cut into strips with the pizza cutter. Each piece should easily make 4-5 strips.
Twist the strips gently and lay on parchment paper to be put in oven.
*I will spray my parchment paper with baking spray when I make them next time for easier removal*
Bake at 325* for 8 min. Remove and add a little more butter and cinnamon.
Then bake for an additional 4 min at 375*
So there you have it! Mock Churros & Margaritas! Yummy Yummy!
