May is headed our way and that means it’s time for Cinco de Mayo! Even if you can’t be in sunny Mexico to celebrate, you can create your own fiesta right here. Get your friends and family together and create amazing memories you’ll never forget!

Must-Haves for a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

Taco Bar

cinco de mayo taco barEvery good party has great food! For Cinco de Mayo, Mexican food is a must. We suggest a full taco bar, filled with all the taco essentials. Here’s a shopping list you can use:

  • Tortillas
  • Taco shells
  • Chicken and beef options
  • Beans
  • Lettuce
  • Cheese
  • Bell-peppers and other veggies
  • Onions
  • Salsa
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Tortilla chips

Don’t forget to provide your guests with paper plates, napkins, and other serve-ware (available at our Party Store).


If this is a party for the over-21 crowd, definitely pick up all your ingredients for tasty margaritas! You will need ice, margarita mix, salt, tequila, freshly-cut limes, and of course, a blender to make them with. No need to buy a bunch of margarita glasses for all of your guests (that could get expensive). We have them available for rent! We also have plastic, disposable margarita glasses available for purchase.

Margaritas are easy to make and delicious on a warm, spring day. Drink responsibly!
