If you’re in San Antonio, it may feel like you are still recovering from all the Fiesta festivities…but for everyone else, Cinco De Mayo is finally here so it’s time to bust out your papel picado + maracas. Check out some of our Cinco De Mayo essentials below!
Easy Guacamole Recipe
At every Cinco De Mayo party (and let’s be real, any party) a solid guacamole recipe is a must! Below is our go to recipe for fresh guac that everyone is going to love.
In one large bowl, mix together: 6 diced whole avocados (Fun Tip: Cut the avocado in half and smush through a cooling rack for the perfect avocado cubes), 1 fresh tomato diced, half of one large yellow/sweet onion diced, 2 cloves of fresh garlic minced, fresh cilantro diced (to taste), salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder (to taste) and finally one fresh lemon or lime juice squeezed.
Whether you’re having the festivities inside or outside, these cute LED cactus lights are a sure way to really make your party stand out! Spruce up your food + beverage table or hang them on your photo booth display, either way, this small decor detail will make a big impression. We found these lights at HEB for just $10 - at that price, you can easily purchase a few strands and use them throughout the party.
Every Fiesta needs serape coozies! We love these because they give an added touch to the party without breaking the bank. You can find these on Amazon in party packs of 3 or more and you can even find many variations of this same coozie for the person who prefers wine over beer.
