Palm Tree Patio Tablescape
Updated: May 5
Cinco de Mayo is the perfect time to try out a palm tree patio tablescape for a little at-home celebration. Scroll down to check my all-time favorite margarita recipe!
Sitting in my living room, I noticed city workers pruning palm trees lining the sidewalk in the front of my house. Watching these huge palm leaves, (apparently they’re called “fronds”) fall to the ground, was absolutely magical. I went outside and asked if I could have two of them. The guy asked, “are you doing a craft project?” “I don’t know,” I said. They were too large to bring inside so I laid them down on my back patio table and they took up the entire table! The next thing I knew, Champagne & I had a lovely tablescape right on our patio!
Pour 1-2 shots of the BEST tequila you will ever taste, Fortaleza.
Juice 1 fresh lime
Splash in *jalapeno-infused honey (*make in advance: mix 1 cup of honey + 1 small jalapeno w/ out seeds; bring to a boil for 20 minutes; let cool & drain off jalapeno; store in the refrigerator for as long as needed)
Mix all three in a shaker with ice then pour over ice leaving a bit of room at the top
Top with Topo Chico Mineral Water, give it a gentle stir & enjoy!
My mother-in-law gave me these iron candlesticks a long time ago and, at some point along the way, I painted them bright orange. I’ve never found a great use for them but, now that we live at the beach, they just seem to make sense. I didn’t have any candles on-hand so I snipped a few flowers from the yard and voila!
You don’t have to live at the beach to feel like you’re on vacation!
