Cinco de Mayo is the perfect occasion to throw a Mexican-themed party that everyone will enjoy. Planning a Cinco de Mayo event is a unique and entertaining way to impress everyone with an event that’s festive and only celebrated once a year. The experts in Orlando event planning at Fun Planners want to help you pull off a memorable, fun fiesta this May! Here are some helpful DIY ideas to add ambiance and culture to your event:

  • Piñata

A piñata is a must for any Cinco de Mayo party, and it’ll be a fun activity for both adults and children. This can be a DIY project simply by taking a large cardboard box, colorful tissue paper, and toilet paper roll tubes. Make sure to fill it with all different kinds of candy!

  • Churros

Churros are a baked good that everyone will enjoy, and they’re easy to eat as well as festive. Bake them in the oven or fry them; there are several recipes for making them found online.

  • DIY Tablecloths

Traditional-style, Mexican-design tablecloths will add an amazingly vibrant aesthetic to your event. Place these or any other patterned, colorful table linens everywhere to add to the environment.

  • Invitations

First impressions are everything, so set the starting tone for your event with Mexican-themed invitations. Use bright colors for the invites or colors of the Mexican flag (red, white, and green).

  • Tequila

Nothing says a party quite like tequila! Tequila just so happens to be a Mexican drink, so use this day as an excuse to make fun, tequila-inspired beverages like margaritas or cocktails. Mexican beer is also an option to have for those who don’t have a taste for hard alcohol. Have a drink limit for those who attend and are planning to drive home.

  • Music

Download some traditional Mariachi music to play over speakers to add life to the party. You can find a playlist dedicated to Mexican-themed music on Pandora, and it will have a lengthy list of songs that will play throughout your fiesta. Have a designated space for people to dance, too!
