Cinco de Mayo Party Ideas

Cinco de Mayo is less than a week away so if you’re planning a party to celebrate, I thought I’d share some fun ideas I’ve found on the web recently to help you create a great party!  Last year I helped a friend with a Fiesta!-themed party so check out that post for some more great ideas.  I also have a Fiesta! board on Pinterest for even more inspiration.

I spotted these fun chocolate red chili poppers in Family Fun magazine – they’re made from Tootsie Rolls & candy melts.  Click HERE for the how-to directions.

Use these free Cinco de Mayo printables from Anders Ruff to dress up your party.  There’s even a homemade salsa recipe to go with them!

I love this mini pinata made from a kleenex box at Studio DIY – so cute!

Alejandra from The Marshmallow Studio shows you how to make sombreros and sarape’s out of marshmallows at HWTM – very creative!!

Have the kids help you make these easy Easter egg maracas from Dana Made It to add a little noise to your fiesta!  You could even use some washi tape instead of masking tape – that would be cool!

I had to show you these pinata cookies from She Knows – very time consuming I’m sure, but what a great idea!

Great Cinco de Mayo recipe roundup over at Six Sisters’ Stuff.

Check out this awesome Skippyjon Jones party that Brittney at GreyGrey Designs created for her son’s birthday – it’s full of great fiesta inspiration!

    These are some great ideas! I really like the egg maracas. What a cute and festive addition – plus kids can make them as an activity and then take them home. Thanks for sharing!
