Easy Cinco de Mayo Entertaining

Thursday, May 3, 2012

I love Pinterest. If it weren't for that wonderfully addicting website, I'd never eat half the amazing food I eat and I wouldn't have my entire wedding planned (I'm not engaged, mind you).

After browsing the site yesterday, I found myself repinning or "liking" everything related to one of my favorite non-holiday holidays: Cinco de Mayo! I decided to put my favorite pins together and create a post dedicated to pulling off the perfect (and easy) Cinco de Mayo party.

First, you need the decor. How about these cute tissue paper streamers and flags? Easy peasy and they instantly brighten up any room.

 What about party favors for your guests? Don't worry, I've got them covered. And the kids can even help you with this easy DIY project: Mini Ruffled Pinatas!

Now for the beverages. The MOST important part of every party, am I right? Every Cinco de Mayo party needs margaritas. Why not switch it up a bit and make these mouth-watering Grapefruit Margaritas!

And last but not least, the food. What goes with margaritas better than tacos? But you can't very well walk around a party with a taco falling all over the place. So here is a yummy recipe for Mini Taco Bites. How darling are these?

There you have it. A fun, colorful, DIY Cinco de Mayo party that would please even the fussiest of guests.
