Margaritas, Tacos, & Coconut Lime Cupcakes – Ole! Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Style


Looking for Cinco de Mayo party ideas? Here are some great ones…

Coconut Lime Cupcakes

First, I recommend making these Coconut Lime cupcakes. It's a coconut cupcake, topped with a tart lime frosting with gold sprinkles, and twist of lime. Yum!

This amazing Cinco de Mayo party features tacos, burritos, chicken & rice casserole, and chips & salsa. I love the Mexican flag dip with guacamole, sour cream and salsa depicting the colors of the Mexican flag! Plus, how terrific are the “taco” cupcakes and Twinkie and spongecake sombreros topped with strawberry sauce.

Margarita Party

Here's another great Cinco de Mayo party where margaritas are the focal point of the event. And to convey a Latin feel, I love the marigold orange, goldenrod yellow, and lime green details. But my favorite element is the tiered tray to hold limes made from two melamine plates. Gorgeous!

Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Table

Beautiful decor on this fiesta table. Great use of cacti, vivid striped blankets, bright paper fans, peppers, and sombreros! This party makes me feel like I'm in Mexico. A girl can dream, can't she?

Nacho Ordinary Party

I love the humor at this Nacho Ordinary Party. Plus, what a gorgeous table and yummy food…black beans, Spanish rice, lime shrimp, marinated chicken and steak, plus grilled peppers and onions. And let's not forget the flower-topped Dulce de Leche cupcakes!
