Happy Monday amigas y amigos!!!

Who is celebrating 5 de Mayo?  We are!  It is also our 12th wedding anniversary that day….so we must PAR-TAY!!! Lol  I figured my husband is marrying a Latina so why not get married on a festive Mexican holiday…HA!!  He has NO excuse to forget our anniversary right?

This set up is eeeeeeasy and sooooo inexpensive my friends!!!  I think a “Nachos” bar is always a hit!……who doesn’t like nachos right?  Perfect for this fiesta!  Do you remember this “lemonade stand” my husband built for me?  I used it for my Valentine’s Day breakfast, for the kids Easter party and now for this celebration!  How cool is that?

It’s all about the details….. the little Mexican flags are fun and Desserts & Designs can create some for you!  The white dishes are from Pier 1 Imports.

I made the flowers with coffee filters, spray painted them and glued them to a recycled tomato sauce can! I had ribbon scraps so I dressed them up a bit! CUTE right?  It costs like…..almost nothing LOL

Other decorations included streamers from the Dollar Tree…..yes! cheap cheap….. I like it!…..Glue them with double sided tape.  I cut them into thiner strips.

I made a festive banner with doilies from the Dollar Tree as well…. I spray painted them red and green.

Pinterest is so awesome!! I found this idea and had to add to my bar set up…..I am also a huge fan of red and green peppers.

I prefer margaritas on the rocks with lots of salt, but you can blend them as well if your guests prefer them that way.  I found my glasses at a yard sale, but I have seen them at the Dollar Tree.  Buy cute straws from Petite Party Studio.  The party circles are from Desserts & Designs.
