cinco-de-mayo-party-ideas

Hi darling,

So here were are, rapidly approaching the month of May already!  (Time flies when you’re getting old as shit, hehe).

More importantly, we’re just one short week away from another one of my favorite holidays … Cinco de Mayo.

Aside from the skinny margs, adorable piñatas + black bean guac., I don’t really have a legitimate reason to celebrate it every year, but whatever.  The margs are a good enough one ;).  #CincoDeDrinko

If you’re all about the fiesta vibes too, this post is def. for you.  Here are 15 essentials you need for hosting the Cinco party of the century.

Notably, you can use these ideas for a Mexican Fiesta/Tacos-N-Tequila themed party (that way you’re not just limited to May 5th … boring).

Ah, fiesta, forevaaaaa!

Hope you enjoy these & have an amazing weekend babe, xo.

PS:  Pretty please share this post on all your social accounts so your fellow margarita sippin’ friends can benefit :)!

 

1.)  KUMQUAT ORANGE MARGARITAS BY SUGAR AND CLOTH

Sugar + Cloth is one of my absolute favorite blogs and this margarita by them is no exception!

You can print the recipe for this mouth-watering Kumquat Orange margarita by visiting their blog here.

I’m getting intoxicated just looking at it, hehe.

2.)  INDIVIDUAL 7-LAYER DIPS BY THE GIRL WHO ATE EVERYTHING

I literally CAN’T EVEN with the cuteness of these portioned out cups from The Girl Who Ate Everything’s blog.

You can make them in plastic tumblers and get all the directions here.

Your guests will seriously swoon over these!  How cute, right?

3.)  MINI CHOCO TACOS BY SPOON FORK BACON

Seriously, the adorableness!  These mini ice-cream tacos are 100% necessary for your Cinco de Mayo/Tacos-N-Tequila themed party.

Plus, they’re actually super simple to make.  Get the full recipe here!

Not only are these darling, but they’re SO SIMPLE to make.  I know they look hard, but for real, the easiest.

5.)  A SUPER CHIC PARTY INVITE

No party feels legit until you get that official invite in the mail.  I’m obsessed with using Zazzle to design affordable and chic invitations.

Check out this adorable one below for a Fiesta themed engagement party ;).

Oh yes!

6.)  MARGARITA CUPCAKES BY SALLY’S BAKING ADDICTION

Cupcakes with tequila in them?  Ummm, sign me the hell up ASAP.

They are sweet lime with a hint of tequila flavor and you can whip them up easily with Sally’s recipe here!

7.)  FEED ME TACOS & TELL ME I’M PRETTY TANK

Well, this graphic tee couldn’t have say it better!

Shop the look here.

8.)  FIESTA BALLOON BANNER

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably have noticed that balloon banners are ALL the rage these days.

You don’t need helium to inflate them (winning) which makes it super easy use them for party decor.

This Fiesta balloon banner is totally necessary for your next fiesta ;).

9.)  TACOS-AND-TEQUILA CONFETTI

STOP, this is a must buy!

You can sprinkle the tequila confetti cuteness all over your table setting and be good to go.

Just make sure no one at the party tries to eat a mini paper taco after one too many Don Julio shots … :).

10.)  CORN & BLACK BEAN GUACAMOLE

I know I mentioned this at the beginning of my post because it’s legit my FAV.!

This spin on boring traditional guac. will be your go-to going forward after you try it.  Grab the recipe from Like Mother Like Daughter blog here!

11.)  MEXICAN FIESTA PAPER STRAWS

Themed party straws = life!  They are pretty much a staple at every party + these ones are the perfect Fiesta fit, shop them here.

12.)  TACO ABOUT A PARTY BANNER

If the balloon banner just wasn’t your style, this one will be!

Now, who else is ready to Taco-Bout-A-Party?!

13.)  MEXICAN STREET CORN

Yes, yes, yes!  Street corn puts the biggest smile on my face and I’m 100% certain you will love it too.

This savory corn on the cob recipe from The Little Spice Jar blog will have you + your guests partying in your mouth!

Fah real, so good (& semi-healthy … ah, life goals!)

14.)  SPICY GRAPEFRUIT MARGARITA

I couldn’t wrap this post up without adding another marg. recipe to it for you … and this time, a spicy one from Half Baked Harvest.

This is one of my absolute FAVORITES, head over to her blog for the directions on how to whip this baby up!

15.)  MINI PINATA PARTY FAVOR

Absolutely no Fiesta party would be complete without some kind of piñata.  I for one am freakishly OBSESSED with piñatas, they bring so much fun/endless laughter to any party you have (especially for adults who love to relive their youth).

Plus, these ones are MINI!

Ah, how precious.

This is the perfect party favor to send your guests home with, it even can fit a small bottle of tequila … :).

Fiesta like there’s no mañana!
