Happy Cinco de Mayo day! Originally, this holiday celebrated the surprise victory at the Battle of Puebla in Mexico on May 5th, 1862. But now, it’s the perfect day to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride. A Mexican fiesta party is so much fun, and this is a perfect opportunity to celebrate with delicious food and festivities. Shindigz has all the Cinco de Mayo party supplies you’ll need for a perfect Mexican fiesta!
You can’t have a Mexican fiesta party without a colorful piñata to set the mood. The kids will love tearing into it! Be sure to have extra candy for the adults too! Next, decorate your yard or party with a Mexican-styled chili lantern garland. Your guests will just love how colorful and festive your tables look with these Cinco de Mayo Del Sol Tablecovers. Add ambience with margarita candles for the center of your tables.
A Cinco de Mayo cocktail party needs spicy Mexican food. How about creating less work for yourself by having a taco bar! Let guests make their own tacos. You’ll want hard shell and soft, flour and corn tortillas. Then gather a selection of proteins: sliced beef, pork, chicken, shrimp, tofu, and white fish. For Mexican fiesta toppings, have a blast coming up with some original ideas. Don’t limit yourself to tomatoes, lettuce, pico de gallo sauce or salsa, and shredded cheese. Have a selection of avocado (add some lime or lemon juice so it doesn’t turn brown!), diced onions or shallots, cilantro, feta cheese (not at all Mexican!), rice, beans, or anything else you like!
How about sliced veggies at your Mexican celebration? The more party selections, the happier your guests will be, especially ones with food allergies. More choices make life easier. Add some Mexican refried beans, nachos, and easy quesadillas to your buffet and your party is rocking and rolling. Now put on your dancing shoes and salsa music, and let’s have a fiesta!
