Cinco de Mayo Party Decorations

by Angel

Cinco de Mayo is the second most beer consuming holiday in the U.S. next to St. Patrick's Day. Have a Cinco de Mayo party at your house with these great party decorations.

Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that celebrates Mexico defeating the French Army in the battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Many people confuse it with the Mexican independence Day which is on September 16. The holiday recognizes the bravery of those that fought in the war. It is important to those of Mexican descent but has become extremely popular in the United States over the years. It is the second most beer consuming holiday in the U.S. Next to St. Patrick's Day. It is important to Americans as well because it celebrates the long relationship between the United States and Mexico. Let's get our party decorations and get ready for this year's Cinco de Mayo festivities!

Cinco de Mayo Music

What party would be complete without music?  Celebrating Cinco de Mayo means you have to listen to great festive music.  This CD has all the great hits that we all know and love.  Tequila, La Bamba, and the Mexican Hat Dance to name a few.  Add this to your party for a very festive occasion.

What Would A Party Be Without Invitations

Invitations must be sent out to get all your friends over to your house this year to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  Amazon has a few great choices of festive invitations that are worth looking at.  This is my favorite.

Even the Dog Should Celebrate Cinco de Mayo

What are you going to do about your dog during your celebration?  I think he/she should take part in the festivities.  How cute would your little one be with this mini sombrero hat on?  At least keep it on them long enough to take a picture!  Too cute.

Forget About the Old Nasty Looking Cooler

Go Cinco de Mayo With Your Cooler

This cooler is so cool that it could only be used for Cinco de Mayo festivities.  It fits the theme and could not be any more colorful and bright.  Just like the celebration itself.  It is plastic with dimensions of 12"high x 18" wide and holds up to (10) 12 ounce cans of beverages.
