Decorations for a Cinco de Mayo party
Cinco de Mayo calls for a fiesta! And every fiesta needs decorations and brght colors.
Start with hanging this Taco About A Party Banner (this makes me crack up every time!), add a colorful Serepe Plastic Tablecloth, or this set of hand woven serape table runners in fextive colors (or both!) and these adorable Fiesta Paper Striped Party Straws with Tacos, Sombreros and more on them.
A taco serving plate with all the sections is an ideal way to serve your taco recipe and all your favorite toppings and be sure to don your let’s taco about it t-shirt (again, cracking up here!) and let the fiesta begin!
