cinco de mayo inspiration

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

if you're hosting a cinco de mayo fun party this weekend, steal some inspiration from pottery barn entertaining ideas. a tequila tasting partymojitos and tacos party or a margarita party are just a few of the party themes perfect for an adults only cinco de mayo celebration. 

galvanized or clay servingware are beautiful elements to add to the colorful decor. sumptious mexican food fare such as guacamole and pico de gallo, ceviche, quesadillas are easy bites to prepare. a build-your-own taco bar would be the ideal setup serving yummy tacos and a mix-your-own beverage bar would be so much fun. a non-alcoholic beverage is always an option such as aguas frescas can be served too. this will be an awesome party to kick off the summer!

lastly, check out this simple how-to in creating a gorgeous mojito-inspired centerpiece (using the galvanized tiered tray from pottery barn). ENJOY!

I love how all of this inspiration feels fresh and natural. It’s a nice change from all the staged and highly styled parties (of which I am completely guilty). I especially like the idea of making centerpieces inspired by a drink. Thanks for the inspiration!
