Oh Cinco de Mayo, how we adore you! Every May you come along with your warm weather, bold colors, delicious foods and plenty of margaritas (not that we need an excuse to indulge!) This year, in preparation for Cinco de Mayo we teamed up with Mesa Chic Parties and Oriental Trading Company to create a chic and colorful celebration. We loved pairing Mesa Chic Parties’ gorgeous linens and pinatas with Oriental Trading Company’s themed party decor to plan out a quick and easy look that will have your guests ready to party!
We wanted to keep the focus on the decor and to create a simple and easy to replicate look, so we left our wood table in its natural state and layered it with a hot pink table runner and makeshift place mats from our friends at Mesa Chic Parties! These bold pieces really made the table pop!
Each place setting from Oriental Trading Company consisted of a colorful dinner plate and coordinating dessert plate which was layered on top.
A decorative straw from Oriental Trading Company rested next to each place setting. We just adore the flag detailing a the top, it adds a fun sense of whimsy to our fiesta!
Our centerpiece was a simple clay tray with included a small vase displaying more straws, a lantern, some succulents and the cutest mini pinata inspired figures from Oriental Trading Company. The tray looked perfect resting on the table runner from Mesa Chic Parties.
These margaritas glasses and shot glasses from Oriental Trading Company at each place setting were not only useful, but they were so cute and perfectly themed for the occassion!
We set up a small bar area complete with more decor, glassware and paper fans from Oriental Trading Company. We layered 2 different table runners from Mesa Chic Parties on the table for a fun and authentic look. We added some of their cactus pinatas and paper mats to our paper fan backdrop as well.
Happy Cinco de Mayo friends!
