Delight guests with these Salted Watermelon Margarita Popsicles.
Put a summertime spin on a classic Mexico drink with the salted watermelon margarita popsicles recipe from How Sweet It Is.

That’s not the only margarita you’ll be making, so a Teak Bar Cart will sure come in handy!
A patio party is not complete on Cinco de Mayo without plenty of cold drinks and margaritas to go around. Make sure you have a nice spot where guests know they can get their favorite drinks. Our Teak Bar Cart pictured above is a simple lightweight cart, easy to maneuver thanks to its wheels, and has three shelves for all those drink-mixing and serving necessities.
Give guests a comfortable place to mingle with patio furniture pieces.
With all the dancing and festivities, guests will sure need a spot to relax and enjoy their snacks and margaritas at your celebration, so deck out your patio with some furniture just right for the occasion. For example, our Director’s Bar Collection offers a solid wood frame table and folding bar stool seats, so this set sets up quickly and stores away in a cinch.
