Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

Texas has a long standing tradition of celebrating Cinco de Mayo and it’s a great excuse to gather friends to celebrate!

I set up a simple table with a Fiesta banner from Piggy Bank Parties and the popular Mexican drink Jarritos tied with striped straws and Fiesta tags from Anders Ruff.

I spent most of the afternoon focusing on hanging out with our friends so I didn’t get pictures of everything, but we had a great time and ate delicious food!  We made homemade salsa and pico from our garden.  I made a HUGE batch of guacamole, my favorite thing about Mexican food!  I also made my first batch of homemade rice and beans and I was surprised at how easy and delicious they were!  And my husband made some killer fajitas.  It was a fun afternoon hanging out with friends and enjoying great company.

Did you celebrate Cinco de Mayo?  Do you have a favorite Mexican food or tradition you incorporate in your Fiesta?
