Mad for Mexican

Cinco De Mayo is the perfect excuse for us to embrace our love of all things Mexican, including mini-tacos, margaritas and of course, guac. Whether you’re planning a Cinco De Mayo inspired wedding or rehearsal dinner, or just a plain old fiesta, these inspired ideas will provide plenty of food for thought!

1) Decor galore! – Who would have thought that empty hot sauce bottles, Mexican soda bottles and cans would make such cute vases? From bright colors to flags, florals, pinatas and other tabletop decor, Mexican-inspired festivities really pack a punch.
