Weekend are crazy busy for me as the summer approaches - Between helping my eldest with his school work, catching up on the house chores from the week, and the hoards of summer parties and posts to plan; I seldom have time to sit and just ponder...And this is why if I can catch some spare time, I run straight to Pinterest!!
Yes, it's become my not-so-guilty pleasure of late. I say not-so-guilty because I treat it more like "research"! ;)
For instance, yesterday I had a hairdresser's appointment of 2 hrs (Yes, it takes that long to make anything decent out of my Barnet...), which gave me the perfect opportunity to PIN a few Cinco de Mayo inspiring ideas in prep for today's post! See?! Total research.
Cinco de Mayo celebrations have a special place in my heart now, since it reminds me of my dad (it was the party that he helped to style when he came to visit...) - You can see our full shoot here.
Anyways, hope you enjoy my research, and don't forget to visit our board on Pinterest here and here if you catch a spare moment this weekend - It's packed with Fiesta Ideas!
¡Hasta luego :)

* I love limes, and if you prefer a more grown-up sweet treat, these margarita cupcakes will hit the spot.
* Flowers add instant color, and if displayed in empty Mexican food cans, they add a special "Frida Kahlo" vibe to any party!
* No fiesta is complete without invitations - Bird's Party Pinata Invites can be customized with any text to suit your fiesta!
* Tacos will look extra appetizing (and are much more practical for parties) if served in edible cups like these.
