Cinco de Mayo Party on a Budget

Skip the pricey food and decor, without skimping on style at your Cinco de Mayo celebration this year. Hosting an over-the-top bash on a budget is easy with the right DIY decor and easy to make recipes that will save you both time and money.

Serve up an authentic menu and personalize the decor to your event. Stick with the traditional Cinco de Mayo colors of red, white, and green to really add that festive feel to the room. Whoever said it's the little things that matter had it right. Pay special attention to small details like plates, serve ware, and even table embellishments to really add that "wow" factor to the spread.

Most importantly, remember to save on ingredients and decorations so you can spend on booze and beer - because Cinco de Mayo just isn't a fiesta without tequila and beer!
