Cinco de Mayo Party Ideas - DIY Party Decorations:
For the styling, I wanted a twist on the usual, dessert table layout and chose a very relaxed, outdoors sit-down style where all the goodies, desserts and party favors bags (decorated with a "Gracias" favor bag labels) are available at arms reach of the kids!
Logs from my garden were re-purposed as seating, and my garden plants acted as a natural table backdrop.
Paper Lanterns decorated with satin ribbon, Sombreros and Chilli garland (from my kitchen) were hung from the trees to add interst and height to the table.
The tablecloth was a bargain find at my local fabric store. Colorful paper plates and napkins as well as round place mats, added nice color blocks to the table decor. The printable buffet labels were used here as placeholder cards with each guest's name.
The centerpiece was created using floral mousse, empty cardboard boxes covered with green wrapping paper, hardy grass from my garden and silk Gerbera Daisies from my local "dollar" store.

The photo I used for the cover of the Spring Issue is of my little angel wearing a stunning, gorgeous, handmade tutu and flower hair accessory by my darling friend Ashlyn from Cole Baby Tutu.

Cinco de Mayo Party Ideas - Party Credits:
One of the reasons I love my job so much is that I get to hang out with my kids all the time! Only when they're willing to join in the madness off course, and my little girl just loves dressing up for the occasion! Even more so when she gets a brand new, totally fabulous, and oh-so girly tutu out of it!! :)
My dear dad was a major help with the styling of the tables, the party crafts and sourcing of party props!! So a HUGE thanks to my lovely dad for the support, inspiring ideas and creative input with this party - It made the whole process a lot easier, a lot more fun and utterly memorable!! Love ya dad! :)
