I love the Papel Picado garland Silke used in last August's Living. They're from a great source called MexEvents and come in a range of bright colors and patterns. They'd be so easy to string up for a party, or wrap around votive candles as Silke did. You still have time to place an order!


If you have a bit more time on your hands, you could make your own garland out of tissue. Click here for the full how-to.


I also love these party place mats from the May 2006 issue of Living.

All you need now is this Chile-Citrus Margarita (from the folks at Everyday Food).
