Sharing is caring!


It’s Fiesta season here in San Antonio, and with Cinco de Mayo right around the corner as well, I thought I’d share some of my favorite DIY Cinco de Mayo party ideas. I’m not a huge and elaborate themed-party thrower, but sometimes all it takes is a couple colorful handmade touches to make a party pop. Checkout these festive Fiesta ideas!

Avocado Piñata by Healthfully Ever After

I think this is the funnest piñata idea I’ve ever seen–almost too cute to hit!


DIY Cactus Props by Squirrelly Minds

Next time you buy a bunch of furniture from Ikea, save the boxes and add some green to your fiesta with these eco-friendly cardboard cacti.


Pin the Tail on the Llama Game

I think this would also be great for a throwback Napoleon Dynamite party, no? “Tina, come get your dinner!”

You may not have time to print and send these festive invites, but you could use them to send a digital one! Loving the color combo!

Bird’s Party cleverly used silk flowers to make this crown–no more worry about your fresh flower crown wilting!

I’ve actually made these before and they were super easy! Plus everyone will admire your handmade party decor skills.

Haeley from Design Improvised is a genius when it comes to party balloons!
