Cinco De Mayo

Are you thinking about Cinco De Mayo yet? Well, you should... it's one week from today! It is a great excuse to have a few friends over for a Mexican themed dinner!!!

I thought about it this morning, and remembered a lunch I decorated for in 2007 for my brother-in-law and his cute wife.

Let me just say, I did this before I took pictures of every step of the process, and I didn't even have a good camera. But it was cute, so I thought I would share anyway.

My awesome mom and I made all the Mexican paper flowers. It took forever, but it was fun to do, and turned out so cute! I will post a tutorial for how to make them this week. It was super inexpensive, and they are so fun to look at!!!

We used all paper goods in bright colors - so fun!

Every good Mexican themed party has a pinata! I filled it with authentic Mexican candy from the Mexican market.

The kids loved it!

This was not for Cinco de Mayo, but definitely could have been!
