DIYF: Cinco de Mayo Fiesta!

May 4

Wow. You ever have one of those weeks where you blink and it’s gone? This week has just flown by for us and it’s time for another DIYF. Remember all of Stephanie Tanner’s catchphrases on Full House? One of the more memorable ones for me was “So, so suck your toe, all the way to Mexico.” Although a trip to Mexico is unfortunately not in my future at the moment, I can at least add some Mexican flavor to my weekend for Cinco de Mayo.

Here are some super fun crafts and Mexican themed DIY you could incorporate into a Cinco de Mayo fiesta:

Ruffled blog shared this awesome tutorial for agave syrup favors. They even have a link to download the free adorable labels.

These festive paper flowers would look so cute adorning the table for a Cinco de Mayo celebration. I love how colorful they are! And I can just never get enough of paper flowers. The tutorial can be found on 100 Layer Cake.

We also found this mini pinata tutorial on Ruffled. How cute are these?!  And the process looks easier than I would have thought, although possibly a little time intensive.

These papel picado inspired invitations are absolutely gorgeous. Papel picado is the Mexican art of cutting paper into elaborate designs. Or as Uncle Joey would say — they take some paper and…

They are so detailed and unique. The how-to for these beauties can be found on Once Wed.

Finally, I just had to share this birthday dessert table from Eye Candy Events via Sweet Designs blog. I love the colorful accordion flower backdrop and am absolutely swooning over that ruffled cake.

Now go out, drink some margaritas and make your Cinco de Mayo fiesta muy bueno!
