cinco de mayo fiestaaaa inspiración

Due to our little bundle, this year we opted for our second Cinco de Mayo Fiesta to be held on June 1st. It will be Uno de Junio ;) I thought I'd repost my Cinco de Mayo Fiesta in case any of you are planning on throwing one this weekend!

Paper & Vine Co. designed my amazing invitation. SO fun, she did a great job at balancing out corny &  fun, yet totally legit...which is just what I was going for. I love the little señor & señorita! I'll definitely be using her again for more graphic design needs. 

We had a build your own taco bar, individual 7 layer dip cups, chips & salsa, black bean salsa, guacamole, black beans, mexican rice, sopapilla cheesecake for dessert...basically SO much food! I'd say, however, the focus was on the beverages. We went all out with white & red sangria , margaritas, pacificos, jarritos mexican sodas, agua, coca-cola and some lemonade for the under-agers. 

What I love about throwing parties is that you cant really take all your friends out and pay for their dinner, but it's totally feasible to throw a party and make food for all of them! It was seriously a blast to have everyone under one roof with the sole purposes of having fun, enjoying each other, and simply celebrating life & God's blessings.

And what's a fiesta without a piñata? We walked across the street to bust open Mr. Burro and share some laughs. 

If you want to throw a fiesta such as this one, I would highly recommend it. It was a blast & a fiesta certainly doesn't have to be exclusively for Cinco de Mayo. This would be a great birthday party or a celebration of any kind, really! Who doesn't like to wear sombreros and eat tacos?
