Cinco de Mayo is a great time to sit back and relax with friends while celebrating Mexico's heritage. This holiday honors the Mexican army's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla and is associated with traditional food and drinks of the region. If you're planning a last-minute get-together in your home, take a look at some fun and festive decorating tips.
- Mexican flag: "The tricolor flag of Mexico (Bandera de México) is green, white and red with the national coat of arms in the center," writes a lifestyle blogger for Fox News. "Display it during a Cinco de Mayo party. It is perhaps the single must-have decoration for the party." You can also incorporate these colors into other home decor, such as curtains and drapes or throw rugs.
- Piñata: If there will be kids at your party, they will love playing with a piñata. After all, who doesn't enjoy the chance to collect candy and other fun prizes? Simply head to your local party store to purchase this prop, which can double as a decoration when guests aren't trying to swat at it.
- Taco station: Today is a great excuse to have a make-your-own taco station for dinner. Be sure that you have enough toppings – including salsa, sour cream, cheese and more – and divide them into original bowls. Offer soft-shell tacos or traditional varieties depending on your guest's preference.
