Cinco de Mayo with Gracias Madre and Chairish

This Thursday my family is getting together to celebrate multiple belated birthdays and I thought it would be fun to have a Mexican fiesta instead of the usual pizza and cake. I got some of my inspiration from a trip to LA and perusing Chairish recently.

As you may know by now I love beautiful design, well I also love great food.  When I visited LA I had a long list of restaurants to visit not just for the food, but for the design as well. One of those restaurants was Gracias Madre, one for the beautiful design and two for the Mexican food.  The only reservation we could get was 5:30 which turned out to be a blessing because they have Happy Hour. There is no happy hour were I live on the East Coast.  They encourage you to order the $5 drinks and appetizers. We ordered one of everything and were amazed with it all especially their La Purista Margarita. The restaurant is vegan and everything is organic and fresh including the ingredients in the margarita. I’ve never had such a delicious drink!

I recently searched the web for the recipe to make this margarita for Cinco de Mayo and couldn’t believe when I found it on  Everything is organic and fresh!

This week Chairish is featuring all sorts of vintage, brightly colored items for Cinco de Mayo.  I love their curated sales for the inspiration. Here are some of my faves.

What are you doing on Cinco de Mayo? Where do you find inspiration?

After the party I’ll post some pics on Instagram.
