Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner! I cannot think of a better way to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride than with a party and good friends! I have looked all over and found 8 of my favorite Cinco de Mayo party ideas.
Would you believe that those limes are filled with a margarita-flavored jello shot? How awesome is that? In addition, this is a no waste party idea! You use the juice of the lime for the margarita part and the rind as the shot holder! There is a full step-by-step tutorial at Brit + Co.
Remember those plastic eggs from Easter? Here is a good way to repurpose them. You can make maracas for your party! A photo tutorial is available at Spaceships and Laser Beams. These maracas will keep your little ones entertained for hours!
I just love how simple this drink umbrella topiary is to construct. The colors are bright and perfect for a Cinco de Mayo celebration! Check out Craft Stylish for instructions on how to put this project together.
This is my favorite of the 8 Cinco de Mayo ideas: tissue box piñata. There is little cost for this project, which is my main goal in life-to save money! You can purchase the crepe paper and the goodies that go inside at the dollar store. Thanks Holidays Central for this money-saving party idea!
You cannot have a party without food! I love the idea of serving a taco in a cup. Your guests can create their own taco masterpiece with all the ingredients you have laid out for them. This idea is brought to you by Appel Farms Cheese.
Here is another way to consume margarita: Margarita Frozen Popsicles! You can get the full recipe for this frozen treat at Hostess with the Mostess.
This next party food idea is my own. I personally stand by this guacamole recipe. For the complete list of ingredients and instructions on how to make this tasty dish, check out The Yummiest Guacamole Ever.
These piñata cookies will take a little extra effort to make, but they are worth it! There is actually a video tutorial on how to make these cookies at She Knows.
