    Yum, I love pico and homemade guac. We usually don’t throw a huge party for Cinco de Mayo. But I think we should this year. I want the margarita glasses.

    I’ve never actually heard of Cinco de Mayo before – I guess it’s a Mexican party, but what’s it in aid of? All your Mexican party goodies and recipes look and sound though, kinda wish I was coming to this party! x

      Cinco de Mayo, (May 5) is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. So many people celebrate by throwing a Fiesta or enjoying a Mexican meal.

    Cinco De Mayo? Well, I’m only hearing of that now but I think I’m loving it. From your ideas, there is too much color going on so I can even imagine how that speaks of too much fun and wonder you are anxious about the celebration,right?

    I’ve been browsing loads of Cinco de Mayo party decor ideas on Pinterest recently, so your post is very apt. I love all the vibrant colours and would definitely use that tablecloth. And who could resist the donkey pinata!

    I have absolutely no idea what Cinco de Mayo is Kristi Ann. It sounds exciting though and a good reason for a huge celebration. Dancing, eating and drinking sounds good to me!
