Hostess with the Mostess Monday: Mexican Blankets

Anyone who knows me, knows my mad love for Mexican blankets.  I always keep my eye out for them at antique shops or flea markets.  I have been lucky enough to find a few and receive one as a sweet gift from a BFF after her trip to Mexico.  What started out as a love affair for pretty colors and prints grew to an appreciation for usefulness.  

You see these gals are much more than a pretty face.  Aside from the perfect cover up for a cool night on your porch or trip to the beach, they are perfect for parties.  Need an eye catching table runner, tablecloth, bench cover, or scarf...your Mexican blanket can save the day.  Though they are an obvious choice for your next fiesta, I hope you will think of them next time you are roasting s'mores in the backyard, planning a wedding, or hosting some friends for a brunch.  

Happy Monday...J
