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!


  1. Mark and I still talk about how much we loved that luncheon!!! I LOVED the decorating and am forever grateful for you! Every now and then when we listen to our itunes mix we here a Mexican song from the's great. :) I am so glad you posted these pictures too because these are a lot better than the ones I have!

  2. Okay...I'm back because I just have to say that I have been looking through your posts and am blown away! Why can't you live close to me so you can decorate my whole house?! You are amazing!
