Cinco De Mayo Party

Who’s ready for a party?? Cinco De Mayo is right around the corner and let’s face it, we’re all in need of something bright and cheerful after the grey months behind us. I got together with my blogger gals Janette (Ava to Zoe) and Heydy (Raising Jay and Abel) to put on a Spring Fiesta with our kids and let’s just say I’m doing a happy dance after seeing it all come together. We all pitched in to bring this party together- yay teamwork!- and you can find the links to the posts Janette and Heydy have up on their blogs, plus source info and links at the end of the post (Janette made to- die- for vegetarian tacos and Heydy whipped up some wicked sangria). 

We went for a twist on the classic Cinco De Mayo theme, taking colour inspo from Mexican blankets and muting them down for a more pastel pallette. We opted for a Tex- Mex menu and a few sweet treats to keep things simple, all around a Mexican theme (how cute are those cactus cookies?!). We added some pops of colour to the table with the flowers and cactus, whipped up a cute ‘Taco ’bout a party’ sign (thank you dollar store!), and added a few fun details like the pineapple and tissue garland at the front of the table for finishing touches. A lot of the items for dressing the table were things we already had, simple DIYS, and some dollar store finds and we wanted to show that you can throw one helluva party without blowing the budget (I’ll be sharing the DIY for the tissue backdrop soon).Whether you throw a Cinco De Mayo party, or like the idea of a Mexican themed fiesta, I hope you get some ideas from these photos! Scroll to the end for links and source info. Ole!
