May's Featured Tablescape

It's May already! This month celebrates Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, and Memorial Day. It also marks the last month of Spring! Oh how fast this season has gone by! However you look at it, summer is right around the corner. For some of us, that means spring cleaning should be at a full sprint, to-do lists checked off, vacations booked, and gardens planted! This month celebrates a wide variety of National Food Holidays, all that can be celebrated even by those who don't plan be in the kitchen as much. So Happy May Day and enjoy a month of celebrations!
