de Mayo accessories
Add a splash of bold, Cinco de Mayo-inspired color to your next patio party or backyard barbecue with the help of these colorful melamine serving trays.

Not only do we love the vibrant design, the durable material makes these stylish trays perfect for any outdoor event. (westelm.com, $10)
Whether you use this eye-catching aquamarine glass bowl to hold fruit on the kitchen counter or simply as a display piece all on its own, you won’t be disappointed with the spring-ready color it adds to any room or any party. The stunning bowl is made from layers of hot molten glass that are molded into a single piece of glass. Hint: Fill the bowl with ripe avocados and lemons or limes for an easy Cinco de Mayo-ready centerpiece. (crateandbarrel.com, $110)

Take any couch or chair from neutral to get-noticed in a matter of minutes just by using these colorful pillow covers featuring Cinco de Mayo-inspired prints. Choose from chevron (still trendy for spring) or floral patterns that will easily give your space a boost or perk up a tired piece of furniture. Each cotton pillow cover is handmade from designer fabric. (etsy.com, $34)
Show off your favorite spring blooms in this bright yellow vase that would also make a fun addition to your Cinco de Mayo decor thanks the eye-catching color. It might seem like a splurge, but the handcrafted porcelain vase is a piece you can show off for all seasons, not just spring and summer.
