We love any festive occasion that's ripe for a theme party, so with Cinco de Mayo quickly approaching next week, we're dreaming up the ultimate fiesta for our amigos. Bring on the bright colors, fun DIY details, and of course, the delicious Mexican food!
Thanks to our pals at Evite and Food Should Taste Good, we're overflowing with an abundance of party ideas to make this year's Cinco de Mayo celebration the best one ever. To set the tone for the party right from the start, we're loving Evite's assortment of Cinco de Mayo e-invitations.
One of our favorite ways to put a personal touch on our parties is to create some handcrafted decorations. For this party, try painting some 3D letters and adhering them to the wall with painter's tape. Of course, no Cinco de Mayo party would be complete without some pinatas - how cute are these little guys?
Flowers are always a welcome addition to any soiree, and we really love how the ones below add to the party's cheerful color palette. They totally pop!
Now for everyone's favorite part of any special event...the menu! Evite has a bunch of yummy recipes that would be perfect for this fiesta - we really love these cool, refreshing lime popsicles, served on ice.
For an easy dish that's sure to be a crowd pleaser, set up a DIY nacho bar filled with different toppings and Food Should Taste Good chips so that all of the guests can customize their meals. Not only is this sure to be delicious, but the simple preparation allows you, the host, to get out of the kitchen and actually enjoy your own party!
To commemorate this event, your guests will love posing in front of a photo wall! After all, who doesn't love a festive Instagram photo? Grab some props and embrace your inner paparazzi. Once you've finished posing with the pinatas, relive your childhood by breaking them open and watching everyone dive for their favorite candy!
