Chippin’, Dippin’ and Margarita Sippin’ Cinco de Mayo Party

Any holiday that revolves around Mexican food is a holiday worth celebrating, wouldn’t you agree?  Growing up in South Texas I have always been a fan of Cinco de Mayo and love planning parties to celebrate with family and friends.  This year I teamed up with Oriental Trading to show you how you can host your own extraordinary Chippin’, Dippin’ and Margarita Sippin’ Cinco de Mayo Party!

With Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about which festive foods and drinks you’ll be serving at your fiesta.  You definitely don’t want to miss out on my famous spicy guacamole recipe, it is a must for any fiesta!  If I could only have one food for the rest of my life I’m pretty certain I would choose guacamole and chips.  I could seriously eat this at every. single. meal.

This creamy guacamole has a little bit of a kick, which makes it super addicting. Of course, you’ll need something to wash it all down so you’ll want to make a big batch of Mango Margaritas.  

If you are throwing a fiesta to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year, chances are you are going to need a drink bucket to keep your beverages cold.  Why use any old, ordinary ice bucket when you can create an extraordinary Pinata Fringe Ice Bucket for your fiesta. This is such an easy way to transform an ordinary ice bucket, you just need a few supplies and less than 30 minutes. Make sure you head over to the Oriental Trading blog for the step-by-step tutorial. 

With spicy guacamole, mango margaritas and colorful decor your guest are going to have a blast at your Cinco de Mayo celebration.  Let them take home a piece of the fiesta fun with them. Make DIY Fiesta Succulent Party Favors to send home with your guest, and as an added bonus you can use them as decorations at your Cinco de Mayo party too!

Succulents are still very much on trend, and they make the perfect party favors for your fiesta themed party, especially when you dress them up.  With this easy tutorial you can turn an ordinary garden plant into a colorful and extraordinary statement piece.

You’re going to need a siesta after this fiesta! On May 5th you will find us we sitting pool side dipping chips in Spicy Guacamole and sipping on Mango Margaritas. This is one fiesta you don’t want to miss! Make sure you stop by the Oriental Trading blog for all of the products and details you will need to host your own extraordinary Cinco de Mayo fiesta.
