Marvelous Mexican-Inspired Tablescape

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a special Mexican-inspired feast! Make a lasting impression by adding decorative touches to your table décor, such as colorful napkins, placemats, and chargers. Incorporate traditional flavors in your dishes, like tacos, refried beans, rice, guacamole, churros, and margaritas for an authentic experience for all your guests. With this creative setup of Mexican-inspired dishes surrounded by eye-catching decorations, your Cinco de Mayo party is guaranteed to be a memorable event.


Get Creative With Cocktails

Ditch the same-old margarita recipes and try something new. Expand your cocktail creation by making personal margarita creations with unique flavors like watermelon, mango, and strawberry. Creating a separate cocktail station is an excellent way to allow your guests to be creative in their drink of choice by letting them select their favorite flavors and customize their own take on the classic margarita. Plus, it's the perfect opportunity to add a pop of vibrancy with some striped tablecloths and runners to your cocktail table, and don't forget to opt for stylish disposable glasses so that your after-party cleaning process can be easy and breezy. This year, go beyond the traditions and liven things up with a little twist to an old classic.


Go With The Traditional Piñata

Throwing a traditional piñata filled with treats and prizes is an engaging way to liven up your Cinco de Mayo celebration. It’s especially great for family gatherings where children can engage in a game and delight in the prizes that come out of the piñata at the end! When filled with candy, small toys, or other goodies, piñatas provide extra fun and energy to parties. You can also fill your piñata with some Mexican treats for an extra traditional feel. Instead of buying pre-made piñatas, why not make your own as a unique activity? With some creativity, colorful paper, adhesive, paint, and tissue paper you can create one-of-a-kind handmade piñatas which can, later on, serve as the perfect memorable decoration for your Cinco de mayo party!


Wrap Up With A Perky Photo Booth

A paper flower and lantern photo booth is the perfect way to end your Cinco de Mayo party! Hanging bright paper flowers, clusters of colorful lanterns, and other Cinco De Mayo decorations will turn your gathering into a fiesta. Surround your guests with an environment steeped in Mexican culture while they capture memories in this lively and vibrant atmosphere. Whether you provide them with props or let them show off their own personalities through bold attire, the images from the photo booth will be vibrant reflections of the energy of the day.
