It’s a great time of year when Cinco de Mayo comes around. It’s a time full of food, fun, tradition and celebration. Cinco de Mayo commemorates May 5, 1862, which is the day of Mexico’s victory over France during the Franco-Mexican War. Regardless of where you live, or how you choose to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, it’s a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your family and friends.
First, you can get started on your party planning with free online invitations. Choose your favorite one, send out the details and prepare for some fun.
Once you have that locked down, set the scene for your guests. Colorful table settings are a great way to brighten up the room and your guests are sure to take notice. Try a red, white and green color scheme to go with the theme.
Get the kids involved in a pre-party activity like some fun arts and crafts that will add to the home décor. For example, these DIY Fiesta flowers can turn your walls into a colorful backdrop. You can even consider hanging them from the ceiling or using them as a bold centerpiece.
Try something new this Cinco de Mayo. The ever-popular guacamole and salsa combination is a sure crowd pleaser, but why not tempt your guests to explore new possibilities? Entice them with something out of the ordinary like strawberry or mango salsa. And for a fun adult beverage that fits the theme, try a beer margarita.
Once your friends and family are gathered in your colorfully decorated home, create a Cinco de Mayo themed meal to share together. Mexican food is definitely worth celebrating and there is no better time, than Cinco De May, to expand out of your typical taco truck state of mind. These recipes are sure to impress.
If you have never celebrated Cinco de Mayo at home with your family you are missing out. There are many fun and exciting ways to celebrate you will probably find yourself having to pick and choose a few of them so you can fit them into one day. Or, you could just make a week of it. But whatever you do, make sure you have fun while spending some quality time with your family!
