I can’t believe that we’re even talking about this right now, but Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner! This year has flown by, but I’m not mad that the colder months are almost behind us. (You hear that Utah…? Stop snowing please!) When it comes to Cinco de Mayo, the food and drinks are the most important, right? But you still need some festive decor to get those party guests in the mood for a fiesta! This printable Cinco de Mayo taco banner is a cinch to make and will put everyone in the feasting spirit!
It snowed in Utah today. Snow. Apparently Spring decided to stay on vacation this year, because she doesn’t seem to be showing up anytime soon. So, until warmer weather decides to come my way, I’ll just have to force a little bit of ambiance inside. This adorable printable cactus cake topper has me dreaming of warmer Arizona days. I was there last month for Spring Training with a friend, and we went on a cactus quest. My love for cacti runs deep and Arizona doesn’t disappoint in the cactus department.

Cinco de Mayo is next week and if you’re looking for the perfect dessert to serve at your upcoming fiesta, look no further.

Pear and avocados are the star of the show for this delicious pear guacamole recipe that’s perfect to serve for Cinco de Mayo this year!
Mexican food is all about guacamole for me. (And a good guacamole at that). Yes, beer, sangria, and mimosas are equally as important, but there’s just something about chips and guac. That’s why I can clearly remember two years ago, when my friend Crystal brought the most amazing pear guacamole over to a friends house for Cinco de Mayo. Yes, I said pear. Pear IN guacamole. (Trust me guys…it’s amazing). I don’t know why I didn’t think about that combo sooner. So, of course, I begged her for the recipe. But, alas, she made it on the fly and couldn’t remember the recipe off of the top of her head. Regardless, I did my best to recreate this yummy pear guacamole recipe for you guys, because it was just too good not to try to make again.
This melon sangria is a light and refreshing twist on the traditional recipe, but just as delicious and refreshing. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo too!
One thing that seems to help make a celebration successful are the drinks. A good cocktail can make all the difference at an event and really get people in the mood to party! With Cinco de Mayo coming up, sangria has been on my brain a lot, but I wanted to put some summer vibes out into the universe to get those warmer temps over to Utah faster. (It’s supposed to SNOW again next week. Ugh!) So, to switch things up a bit, I’m sharing a recipe for melon sangria that’s perfect to serve for your upcoming fiestas and a thirst quenching taste of Summer too!
You only need a few easy to find ingredients to pull this cocktail together and it’s a breeze to make, which is one of the reasons why I love sangria so much! (Well, besides that whole wine part, which is kinda hard to beat).
With only a few simple ingredients, you can whip up this delicious homemade salsa hummus recipe. Perfect to add to your spread for Cinco de Mayo this year!
We all know that Cinco de Mayo involves a lot of salsa and a lot of guacamole. (And don’t forget the beer!) But, why not serve something a little unexpected this year? I’m sharing this homemade salsa hummus recipe that would fit in perfectly among all of those other Cinco de Mayo legends. And it’s healthy too, so that’s an even bigger plus!
Homemade hummus is actually really easy to make and only requires a few ingredients. So whip out that food processor and let’s do this!
That gooey marshmallow mixed with the crunchy cereal just has a way of making me happy. Like, really happy. Eat a whole pan to myself kind of happy.
I’ve been a die hard to the original for a really long time, but I got daring one day and tried out a few new flavors.
Best decision ever. Mind blown.
This one is perfect for an upcoming holiday that’s right around the corner…Cinco de Mayo!
I know I’m a bit biased, but these little party hats are just the cutest. Yes, they are a little silly, but the cuteness factor definitely surpasses everything else.
I may have worn this around for most of the afternoon. And danced. Just a little bit.
If you happen to live in Utah, you’ll probably catch me sporting one of these DIY sombrero headbands around on Cinco de Mayo. I can’t seem to get enough of em’.
