Happy Cinco De Mayo!

Yay for Cinco De Mayo! As many of you I’ll be joining the Cinco De Mayo festivities this evening too, except this party is also tied into a Thirty One party. The lady who set up this party knew what she was doing! She’ll be handing us margarita after margarita & churro until we’ve all spent at least two weeks pay checks, haha.

I’m attending the party with my mother and a few other friends so at least I’ll have a driver if things get a little too heavy. I know that’s bad to say & it’s only Tuesday, but hey – you do what you got to do.

Keeping up with Cinco De Mayo I’ve decided to feature a few festive things I’ve come across in the last couple of days. I’ll be making piñata cookies, I’m also making some for my little cousins birthday party next weekend so I’ll get a tutorial together then. They are yummy & cute- look at that, a twofer!

Strawberry Beer-rita


Baked Brown Butter Churro Donuts


Beer hugger


Sombrero cookies


Festive flowers


Homemade Horchata



I hope everyone has a happy & safe Cinco De Mayo! How do you plan to spend yours?

      I don’t have it either. Haha. I have been dancing around with maracas this morning. I have no idea where they came from but I’m sure my co-workers want to beat me up. Ha! I hope you have a great day Beauitful!

  2. The homemade horchata looks really good. We had mexican and some frozen margaritas after church on Sunday, so that was my ‘early’ Cinco De Mayo celebration. 🙂 Gotta run the kids places tonight!

      Early sounds even better! Hah. Last year was the first time I tried horchata & I loved it! I’m sure they’ll be some around this evening. I hope you & the kids have a great day!

    Happy (day late) Cinco de Mayo! I love it each item – and I’ve never had homemade horchata – I am so sure it is better than what I’ve had! Hope your parties, and the Thirty One party – were extra fun! 🙂
