Let’s Fiesta like there’s mañana!
Cinco de Mayo is one of our favorite holidays, not only because it doubles as our wedding anniversary, but because it’s a great excuse to enjoy delicious Mexican Food! I’m thinking a fun fiesta is in order to celebrate…big or small, it’s still a good time.

For the party decor: create a focal point for all of your party decor. Add honeycomb and tissue paper flowers in bright springtime colors and a fiesta banner to set the stage. I have also die cut some paper flowers and added them to basic gift sacks that you can buy at the store. Solid red, lime green and yellow colors work great for a fiesta.
Using the same party back drop, it can also double as a photo booth back drop later on during your fiesta.
Stock up your photo booth with lots of fun Cinco De Mayo Photo Booth props like sombreros, fake flowers for the girls to wear in their hair and fake mustaches just for fun too. Don’t forget the maracas!
For a cute inexpensive kid craft for the little ones, you can make pipe cleaner rose rings.
Nothing screams party to the kids like a piñata. Fill it with all your favorite candy, and don’t forget a blindfold and a stick for whacking.
Send your party guests home with a bottle of sparkling lemonade dressed up with a ribbon and festive paper flower to thank them for joining you.
Will you be hosting a little fiesta this year? Or attending one?
