May is a great time of year to host a party outdoors, weather permitting! Dress up your outdoors with some string lights! You can get some from your local craft store, or grocery store. They add extra lighting for when it gets dark, and make the whole space brighter!
Music: One of the most important components to any party is the music. Keep the mood upbeat by creating a fun playlist ahead of time. You can even get some suggestions from friends so everyone gets to dance to their favorite tune! It’s always smart to play the classic party songs and add in some of the newer hits you love.
Decorations: Cinco de Mayo is the perfect holiday to add playful decorations like paper lanterns, banners, props and more! Head to your local dollar store or party city and pick up some great fiesta themed items for your guests to enjoy!
Flowers: Flowers always add a nice touch to any gathering. Since Cinco de Mayo revolves around the color red, we suggest getting some great gerbera daisies or carnations from your local Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s. Trim them and place in a simple mason jar or vase.
