I am a little late to get on the Cinco de Mayo train, but I wanted to do a quick MEGA post of all things that put me in a "fiesta" mood!
These muy caliente printables are by Kim @ TomKat Studio.
The FREE collection includes cupcake toppers/tags and invitations. Love the bright colors!
I just discovered Annika's blog: Cakes Likes a Party. Instant love!
She made a Cinco de Mayo FREE & Awesome ;) printable banner to share. Thanks!
How About Orange's compliment bunting came up in my Facebook feed a month ago, and I have been looking for the perfect occassion to share it!
This would be so fun to put up in one of your co-worker's cubicle to brighten their day.
Definitely one of my go-to sites for printables: Catch My Party!
This collection by Brady @ 9 to 5 Mom includes: a 5×7 invitation, party circles, drink flags, water/beer bottle labels, and a “Cinco de Mayo” banner. Essentially everything you'll need to throw one great fiesta!
Crafts & Tutorials
These mini pinatas by @ One Charming Party have been the Cinco de Mayo crush of blogland!
What a perfect craft to do with your kids (or a festive party favor) to celebrate the 5th of May.
Chelsea @ Lovely Indeed shared this DIY Papel Picado tutorial @ The Sweetest Occassion.
This is perfect if you want your "Mexican Bunting" to say just the right words or have the perfect design.
I'm thinking some chevron details?!?
This would work great for a fiesta & a luau!
The Paper Parasol Topiary tutorial is by Craft Stylish and was found via the Hostess with the Mostess' daily blog.
What's a cake without mini-bunting?
The tutorial by Jenna @ EatDrinkPretty featured on A Subtle Revelry (recent blog crush...) that shows you how to do it "Cinco de Mayo" style.
Food & Parties
Cinco de Maia!
A 1st birthday south-of-the-border style!
Kelly @ WH Hostess created this festive party and it was Kara's Party Ideas winning feature. Congrats & gracias for sharing the party!!!
The Sweet Adventures of SugarBelle never disappoints!
The chips & guacamole are actually cookies & icing! How fun! These would also be perfect as a sweet trick on April Fool's Day. Visit her site for the complete tutorial.
Don't fret! This smore station is just one of the drool-worthy images from the Mexico Inspired Wedding Shoot featured on Style Me Pretty.
The style & inspiration behind the shoot is classic Mexican with vintage & rustic touches.
I hope I haven't put you into inspiration overload!
I am on my way now to make "Churro" cupcakes, wish me luck!
