Fiesta Like There’s No Mañana!

Fiesta Like There’s No Mañana! Cinco de Mayo Party

We’re cranking up the color and turning up the tunes! Let’s ‘Fiesta Like There’s No Mañana!’.

Cinco de Mayo, Spanish for the ‘fifth of May’, is a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.

Traditional Mexican dishes, free-flowing margaritas, and festive decorations top off the vibe. Incorporate Mexican music and be ready to shake your maracas, olé!

Kid Friendly Beverage Ideas

We wholeheartedly encourage you to keep those margaritas flowing, but we’ve also gotch yo’ back, girl! We’re gonna help you save face and keep pace by staying hydrated, so we’ve curated some of our favorite non-alcoholic options for you as well. 💦

Topo Chico Mineral Water won’t put a damper on your Fiesta Party vibe.  It’s basically mineral water, with sass!

More non-alcholic options include lemonade, Jarritos (mexican soda), and carafes filled to the rim with water – or Kool Aide if you’re cooler than us!  (Totally dropped the ball there – that would have been ‘Kool’!). Top those buckets off with fresh cut fruit – blood oranges, orange, grapes, lemons and limes. The more, the merrier!

Jarritos was Mexico’s first national soft drink in 1950 and is now the best selling Mexican soft drink in the U.S. Jarritos is the best compliment to Mexican food because of it’s nine great tasting and authentically Mexican fruit flavors. (Description courtesy Amazon.com)

PRO TIP: Don’t be like us. Fill those jars up with KOOL AID for an additional pop of color! 😂

We dropped the ball and went with ice-cold water, but Kool Aid would be a much KOOLer option!

We want you to show us your jugs!  Uh, I mean, we’d love to see your festive displays!  We’re always looking to show our customers off!  To be considered for feature, simply submit your party photos to mae@customaed.com.

Tequila Bar

This is asking for trouble (she says with a twinkle in her eye!).  We invited guests to DIY at the Tequila Bar. Provide lime, salt and of course – TEQUILA!

Something about this pink Himilayan Sea Salt speaks to our fiesta-loving hearts.  No matter how you like your tequila, a side of pink salt makes it all just a little more fun.

There really is no party quite like a fiesta party! The design and setup process was a lot of fun; from early-morning Tequila Sunrises with mi amiga, to sharing Jarritos with the kids, there’s just so much life and color in a good Cinco de Mayo party.  We’re sharing our Cinco de Mayo shopping list over on Amazon. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

Party on my friends!  ¡Vamos de fiesta!
