Who’s ready for a fiesta?! I know it’s not quite Cinco De Mayo but in my opinion fiestas can happen any time of year. I love margaritas, I love Mexican food, and I love a good colorful party! I think spring is a good time to start the fiestas and keep them going through the summer. If you’ve visited my blog you know I also love bright colors, which makes a fiesta the perfect fit. I am doing more Cinco De Mayo posts than Mother’s Day, but don’t worry I will have some of those as well. Last year I made these Fiesta Flowers that have been a huge hit and they are really easy to make! This year I have a week of fun and colorful Mexican blanket printables. These are made even more fun by attaching real yarn to the ends. The free printable fiesta placemats are really fun for parties. Let’s get this party started!

This week has been all about the fiesta as I am getting ready for CInco De Mayo! I know it is a month early but that’s how it goes in the ole blogging world. You really get to celebrate every holiday twice! I made my pineapple margaritas and Mexican flower drink stirrers. Now I have these easy colorful tissue paper fiesta flowers! They are super duper easy to make and you can make a ton for a party. To use for a party backdrop, centerpieces and just scattered throughout a party. These are also fun to just make with kids. My daughter and I love the bright colors and the fiesta theme is a perfect fit for us. When you are from Arizona you have to know how to throw an awesome fiesta for Cinco De Mayo.
I am getting ready for a fiesta! Margaritas, bright colorful tissue paper flowers, and Mexican food. I could seriously eat Mexican food every day, I kind of do haha. These little Mexican flower drink stirrers are the perfect touch in a margarita. They would be super cute in any bright color drink. Ole ole lets make some colorful fiesta flowers!
What you need to make them:
tissue paper in bright colors with at least three colors
twine or ribbon
hot glue gun
Cut the tissue paper into two inch strips across the width of the tissue paper(shorter side of the tissue paper). Cut those pieces into thirds, they should be about 3 to 4 inches long.
With Cinco De Mayo coming up I have had margaritas on the mind! It is also starting to heat up here in Arizona so all I want to do is consume frozen drinks. My coffee is about to get iced, iced tea, iced cocktails and just bathing in ice because it gets so ridiculously hot! We also are big into Cinco De Mayo here. I love a good margarita and I also love pineapples so I thought why not put them together. Honestly, I wasn’t sure if this combination would work out but this pineapple margarita is fantastic! Such a refreshing drink for summer and for a fiesta. Are you ready for a fiesta?! I think I need to have an online fiesta, wouldn’t that be fun! Pajama fiesta. That is mostly how I party these days anyways a marg in pjs while watching Scandal.
It’s almost time for Cinco De Mayo! I’m not sure if everyone does a big thing for Cinco but in Arizona we certainly do. Any excuse to eat more Mexican food is fine with me! I always have a Mexican blanket in my car so I am basically ready for a fiesta at all times. I wanted to do a little Arizona spin on CInco De Mayo. I made these fun little cactus cupcakes that would be perfect for a fiesta with kids. I can always find a way to make cupcakes a part of any occasion. I also made them wear candy sombreros You could just put the “sombreros” on the cupcakes without the cactus or just on a plate with no baking required. The cacti(for some reason I dislike the word cacti I am I the only one?) just make me smile especially with the silly faces!
Since Easter we have had a ton of extra Easter eggs lying around. My daughter still loves to put things inside them and hide them. The rest of the Easter stuff is all put away but a few of the eggs have stayed out. When getting ready for Cinco De Mayo I got the idea to make maracas out of the extra Easter eggs. I love getting extra use out of things I have around the house. It worked out really well and was super easy.
What you need:
plastic Easter eggs
dried lentils, beans or rice to fill the eggs with
