Cinco de Mayo party ideas

Menu ~ Plan a simple and easy menu so you are not in the kitchen all day. for our party, we chose to start with things luke chips and dip along with other appetizers. We followed this with a make your own taco bar.

Drinks ~ Make sure you have plenty of drinks to choose from. We had a cooler with both regular and diet drinks along with water.

Games ~ Have games that both adults and children can enjoy. things like Pinta, pin the tail on a donkey or even musical chairs is fun.

Table Setting ~ Have a festive table setting. things like bright color plates, decorative tablecloth, chili pepper serving trays and maybe even a few cute dancing girls.
