Cinco de Mayo – An….American Holiday?

Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War.

Upon some research on the topic, we learned that this is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico; yet in the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.

Now that you’ve gotten your history lesson for the day, let’s talk about celebrating this festive day at the start of May.

Every Cinco de Mayo Party has to have great margaritas, but what about these tiny and tart margarita shots? They’re cute, and oh so refreshing.


Mix up boring guacamole with the fruity punch of fresh mango. Click here for the recipe and say “Thanks Food Network!”


How about a mix of food and booze? These Pineapple Tequila Skewers are gorgeous, festive, and are guaranteed to impress your guests and your taste buds. Simply take chunks of pineapple and soak them in tequila; refrigerate for 1 hour. Remove, save all of the excess tequila for drinks, and thread the pineapple onto skewers, dip them in coarse salt, and garnish with a lime wedge.

Final food thought: Instead of chips and salsa, queso, or a taco bar, consider this ahhh-mazing looking Mexican pizza with fresh, colorful toppings. Delicioso!

No Cinco de Mayo Fiesta is complete without some ‘spicy’ décor, so try on these chili pepper lights for size. They’re sure to keep the crowd ‘lit’ the whole day through.


Finally, whip up some Sombrero Cookies for your pals; they’re festive, sweet, and so easy the kids can help out too.


Enjoy your Cinco de Mayo fiesta safely and que tenga un buen dia! (have a great day!)

"I am an extremely organized person so I really didn't think I needed any help in planning my daughter's wedding. I decided to call Bluming Creativity for some ideas and I am so happy that I did. Tara gave us the piece of mind that all was well and truly allowed me to enjoy the special day with family and friends; not worrying about wedding details. She guided us through every aspect of the wedding plans and when we were stumped for ideas, she came through beautifully. I could not have asked for a more personable, energetic, artistic and capable planner."
