Host a Cinco de Mayo Party!

Cinco de Mayo is a super fun holiday to celebrate a pre-summer kick-off.  We’ve pulled together our mood board and simple shopping list so you can bring your Cinco de Mayo party to life in just a few clicks.

The Inspiration


I pulled this inspiration together from the go-to source, Pinterest, which gave me so many good ideas.  My two favorite pieces of inspiration came from B.Lovely events and Style Me Pretty Living.

The Decor Details



I love to use items that I have on hand and purchase simple decor to add pops of color.  For this party, I’d love to see white plates with a jalapeno used as a place card.  Using a sharpie marker, you can easily write your guest’s name on it and place it at the top of the plate or near the napkin.  I also found some great decor on Amazon listed below.  The cactus and succulents make great table decor and a favor for your guests.  Shop all the details below.
