Let me show you some tips for an easy and colorful Cinco De Mayo party! Cinco De Mayo is a fun time to have a casual get-together with friends and family.
You don’t need to go out and buy anything new. If you simply shop around your home I bet you have things you can use.
Better yet you may enjoy a trip to your local thrift store to find inexpensive “new to you” items. For thrifting tips check out my post with the top 5 tips for thrifting: link here
Find something that inspires you, for me, it was some of my favorite hand towels. They were definitely were not something I usually would be drawn to, but the colors make me happy. I knew they would be my inspiration for my Cinco de Mayo party. If you need them in your life you can order from Michelle here
When most people think of Cinco de Mayo the colors that come to mind are traditional reds, greens, blues, and yellows.
Those are colors I just don’t really own, but the hand towels had a version of all of those.
Look at the warm terra cotta color with the greens and aquas. They are just perfect for this time of year.
I went to work digging through my stash of plates and napkins. The dinner plates are PLASTIC! Yup, that’s right. They came from Target. Not sure if they still have them but here are some similar ones
I had some adorable striped napkins I used that were about the same color, but plain white or linen would be just as cute.
I knew I wanted to add some woods and metal accents too. I mean it just felt right for an outdoor event. The chargers have been around for years. I know they are easy to find these days, but just in case I love these from Hobby Lobby.
Layering is key using different textures from the sisal rug for the base to the old wood box, and of course the fresh flowers.
I love adding in fresh flowers whenever I can. I picked these cuties up at Publix for $12. I cut them down to make them work in the terra cotta pots.
And what party would be complete without some candles? Well, none of mine for sure. I created these garden pot-themed candle holders using some small white pots I found at Goodwill.
This was one of the easier DIYs I have done and why I didn’t do it sooner I don’t know.
