Cinco de Mayo Ideas!

5/5/16

Today is Cinco de Mayo and what better reason to host a happy fiesta? Check out this spread!

  



A Mexican-themed party is a great idea for any summer outdoor gathering.  With twinkling lights, bright colors, fresh food and cold drinks, your guests will appreciate a relaxing fun evening with friends.  Here are some delightful ideas for your party:

 

Aesthetic Nest has easy instructions on making these pretty paper bouquets out of cocktail napkins, twist ties and bamboo skewers.  You can also use crepe paper and place the paper flowers in inexpensive green glass vases. We picked up a dozen easily at Goodwill.



Oprah.com has a fantastic recipe for an unexpected Mexican dish: Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos. Not only are is it delicious, it's a perfect way to host vegetarians and it makes a great side dish. You must try it!



Oilcloth tablecloths are a great way to add color to your table and create a beautiful Mexican look.  This one is from MexicanSugarSkull.com and is bright and festive.  You can also find them on ebay by the very friendly Cali-Gal Stitches who sells by the foot or roll to custom fit your tables.
