Cinco de Mayo is a great Mexican tradition that has become a must-celebrate holiday in certain areas of the U.S., like Texas. As we noted in our previous post, Texas Style Cinco de Mayo, Texas Treats can supply all of your Cinco de Mayo needs when you throw your own party for family and friends.
Now, if you’re like most people, attending a party is much more fun than planning one. All of the party details like: what to eat and drink, what activities to plan, and what music to play can be quite overwhelming. Have no fear, Texas Treats is here! So dust off your margarita pitcher and get ready to celebrate the warm weather with our Texas Treats Cinco de Mayo party plan.
- Calling All People: Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner so get online ASAP and send out a Mexican Fiesta themed Evite or Paperless Post to those you want to celebrate with.
- Decor: Ay Caramba!!! Your Cinco de Mayo party should have the feel of a traditional Mexican Fiesta. Don your house with the Texas flag and the Mexican flag. All of the colors of your decorations and flatware can stem from the red, green, and white colors of the Mexican flag.
- Comida “Food”: Now that you can see what your Cinco de Mayo coming together let’s focus on the most important part of any celebration… the food! Don’t forget your Texas Treats Authentic Texas Tortilla Chips to start. Guacamole and Salsa is a standard at any Mexican party, and some spicy jalapeño poppers (muy caliente!). All of this food can be enjoyed with a traditional Mexican margarita.
- Music, Fun, and Games: A Cinco de Mayo celebration isn’t complete without some traditional mariachi music playing in the background. As your music is playing call everyone to participate in hitting the piñata. The piñata is full of fun snacks, candy, and toys. After the piñata is broken open it’s a mad dash for everyone to pick up the candy. In this game everyone is the winner!
With these simple instructions you can throw your own Cinco de Mayo celebration. Every guest will leave saying, “gracias amigo!” Also, remember to visit the Texas Treats website for all your Texas themed celebration needs.
