Cinco de Mayo Inspiration


I consider Cinco de Mayo the kick-off to outdoor entertaining season. Margaritas, tacos and chips with salsa always taste better when enjoyed out on a patio! It’s time to sweep away all those cobwebs, give everything a good scrub and freshen up your space for entertaining. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite fiesta inspirations and eye candy. No matter the size of your celebration, these creative ideas should be added to your party. ¡Olé!

These Mexican food cards are amazing and would be the perfect touch to any buffet. Check out the free download at Happy Thought.

It doesn’t get much easier than this table decor idea – colorful tin cans filled with succulents. Faux succulents can even be used for those without a green thumb!

A variety of Mexican sodas, mineral water and aqua frescas is a fun detail and an unexpected treat for your guests.

Tissue paper flowers offer tons of bang for your buck! Uncommon Designs and Rust & Sunshine provide great how-to instructions and are just a couple of the many online tutorials available.
