Decorating your dining room with brightly colored fabrics, paper flowers, woven baskets, sombreros, tooled leather accessories, serapes (capes) and even pinatas can give your meal a fiesta feel -- even in the middle of winter. Tune the radio to a Latin music station (you can find a number of them online) and you have all the fun of a mariachi band without the expense. If you need a little help finding the perfect table decorations, most party stores stock Mexican-themed plates, cups and tablecloths -- at least around Cinco de Mayo (May 5th). Be sure to stock up.
