The last time it fell on a Saturday, I was a Uni student in New Zealand, and probably studying hard trying to get every penny's worth out of my tuition since I was paying exorbitant international student fees.
Now, of course, I'm living the weekend life. But really, my husband likes to socialize and I like Mexican food, so I can see no better way to enjoy this weekend than with a Cinco de Mayo party for our friends and their kids.
And so begins my scouring of the interwebs for wonderful ideas for the party. So far, here's what I've found:
|diy cinco de mayo pinata from studiodiy|
diy geometric cinco de mayo fiesta garland from ohhappyday!
These dulce de leche cupcakes from Joy the Baker
Any of the 36+ recipes provided by Serious Eats
Agave Margaritas from Bon Appetit
Tequila (Gummy) worms (my husband's idea & for the grown ups)
So, even though I'm fairly sure it is a holiday enforced by the companies in charge of the Jose Cuervo and Corona brands, I raise a glass to Cinco de Mayo, giving the world an excuse to party every 5th day of May!
Any other awesome ideas?
