The 5th of May is nearly upon us, meaning that many people will be preparing for their Cinco de Mayo parties! Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “5th of May”) commemorates the victory of the Mexican army over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on this date in 1862. Today, it is a celebration of Mexican culture and is celebrated all over the world (there’s even an annual Mexican festival thrown in Brisbane to honour the occasion!) There’s heaps you can do to mark the occasion and no shortage of Mexican themed supplies here at Shindigs for whatever you do for your Cinco de Mayo celebration!
We have loads of costume accessories that would be perfect for a Cinco de Mayo celebration! Sombreros, ponchos and other Mexican themed costume accessories would work for the occasion.
There’s also plenty of Mexican themed decorations for the party area. These include balloons, hanging decorations, assorted cut-outs, flags and more! You can mix and match these with plain coloured decorations to match the colours of the Mexican flag!
The same goes for any tableware for the occasion! We have heaps of Mexican themed tableware, cups and napkins, as well as plain coloured tableware, tablecovers, cups and napkins that would be muy bueno for any Cinco de Mayo party!
Serving Mexican food at the celebration is a no-brainer –some individual nacho cups would be a big hit! You could even make some sweet treats to mark the occasion, like cupcakes (in alternating Mexican flag colour cupcake cases) or some strawberries dipped in white chocolate and green sprinkles – too cute! Don’t forget to serve it all alongside some refreshing margaritas (for the adults only, of course!)
