the pink pagoda's blue and white bash and my one year blogiversary!

5.05.2014

Happy Cinco de Mayo, everybody! 

Not only is today one of my favorite holidays, but it is also my one year blogiversary! 
What a wonderful year of blogging it has been--full of learning and lots of fun; but perhaps the best part is the new friends I have made along the way. And what better way to celebrate my blogiversary than with those friends over at The Pink Pagoda's Blue and White Bash


The Pink Pagoda's Blue and White Bash is always such a festive way to start off the month, and for May's bash I have decided to bring some blue and white Otomi in honor of Cinco de Mayo. You, too, can bring your own blue and white and join us over at Jennifer's party, or you can sit back, sip a margarita, and scroll through all of the beautiful blue and white shared by other blogs.

Fittingly, Jennifer's use of Otomi in the One Room Challenge has really turned me on to the Mexican textile. As demonstrated in the pattern that Albertina of Mimosa Lane provided for Jennifer's room, Otomi patterns are often known for their colorful palette, but for today's bash I am going to stick with blue and white. Furthermore, I decided to keep to Otomi tablescapes and other party related pieces for today's celebration:







And I couldn't resist including these two blue and white Otomi party dresses--they look perfect for the heat that is headed our way this week!:

Congratulations on your blogiversary! I don’t think I’ve seen Otomi in the single color way before. It is an amazing statement-maker and just the thing for an anniversary celebration in the outdoors. Best wishes for a wonderful 2nd year.
