My favorite holiday is almost here!! Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

I've always had a special place in my heart for Cinco de Mayo!! I don't know if it's the chips and guacamole or the fact this it is the only day I can get away with wearing an over sized sombrero....but every time May 5th rolls around, all I want to do is sit outside and enjoy margaritas and cervesas with mi amigos!!

How are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo this year?? Below is a little inspiration to get you in the fiesta mood!

Here are some decor ideas for your fiesta!!

Very Traditional:

Martha Stewart's version of Cinco de Mayo:

Easy to do, homemade pinata!

Don't stress yourself out in the kitchen. Enjoy your fiesta. Having a taco or nacho cart at your fiesta will impress your guests and make your life easier!

Margarita Madness!! Lets face it... we all love Cinco de Mayo because it's the one day we can splurge on a margarita... guilt free!! Now although I love my skinny girl margarita from time to time, a fiesta is not a time to count your calories. So treat your guests to a variety of flavors such as strawberry and mango!! Yum :)

Details Details Details!! Such a cute touch:

Squeezing 1,000 limes for ONE margarita can be a little tough on the hands and time consuming...(trust me, I have gone that route and it's not worth it!!) If you have a big guest list, order a margarita machine to do the work for you!

Or even better.. The Margarita Man :)

And last but not least, if your budget allows for it, splurge on a mariachi band!! Your guests will LOVE this and you'll feel immersed in the Mexican culture!
