Having a few friends over to your place for Cinco de Mayo this year? We put together a list of our favorite decor, snacks and drink ideas for you to try at home.

Centerpieces

Some of our favorite DIY bloggers and creatives have made the best centerpiece crafts for Cinco de Mayo. Jen Lauren Grant of Amuse Booth created this following look. Using plant-safe paint to decorate filler rocks (or neon pink aquarium gravel) for small potted succulents is an adorable way to dress up any table.

What’s Cinco de Mayo without the Corona? And even if you won’t be drinking them, re-purposing these bottles to dress your tabletop help make your party look official. This next centerpiece idea from Jac o’ lyn Murphy requires some empty bottles, a few flowers, craft paint and a li’l bit of patience.corona pink paint

Being from the South, we had to put a Carolina twist on a classic drink. Here, SouthernLiving.com show us a cool recipe for sangria. This Carolina Peach Sangria is both festive and a bit of a break from the norm. (Click here for the recipe)

Runner 

Keep the Mexican theme going strong with an awesome serape runner for your table. Etsy.com is a great destination for Navajo inspired serapes. From more traditional looks to, our favorite, hot pink hues, Etsy has tons of options.

For a more savory snack, we love this recipe from A Few Shortcuts. Bite-sized snacks like these are easy to make and easy to enjoy.Fiesta-Stuffed-Mini-Peppers-5

Bar Cart

Not really into going all in with centerpieces and food? Consider a bar cart. A bottle of Tequila, a few Coronas, maybe a piñata and your pretty much set. You and your crew can enjoy the evening in a more chic, but, low maintenance way. Palm Beach Lately gives us some serious inspiration below.
