Celebrate Sign

For the ‘celebrate’ sign, print, cut, and hang it anywhere you want with tape.

I like to use painter’s tape, rolled with the sticky side out so it doesn’t damage wall paint. But use at your own risk, as you know what you’re working with best.

Place Cards

Printable food sign for a Cinco de Mayo party.

Print as many place cards as you need. Cut them out, fold each in half, and write names, food types, or any other relevant information. 

Cupcake Picks

Pink and white frosted cupcakes with printable cupcake picks for a Cinco de Mayo Party.

For the cupcake picks, print as many as you need for your cupcake display. Cut them out, attach them to a short skewer or pick with some tape, and insert them into cupcakes.

If you want them to look better from the back, you can use hot glue instead of the tape. Or try using clear Scotch tape instead (but never use this type of tape on your walls!).

There are two available sizes for the banners. Choose which size you want to use and print out as many pages as you need.

You can also use the scale feature in the printer screen when printing to make it print out in other sizes. Cut out each piece.

Punch holes in the two top corners. String curling ribbon through, and attach the string to the wall with tape. 

TIP: You can hide the tape with a festive garland, a sign, etc., just so the guests won’t see them.

The fiesta/ party kit contains the materials you need to throw a festive party, but go ahead and customize them however you want!

Layer them over other paper party decorations, like a papel picado banner, enhance them with glitter, get as creative as you want.

More Ideas for Your Cinco de Mayo Party

Cinco de Mayo should be all about honoring Mexican culture, and you can carry this throughout your Cinco de Mayo celebration in many ways!

  1. Whip up some traditional Mexican dishes: Prepare authentic Mexican cuisine to honor the flavors of Mexico. When looking for recipes online, make sure you are choosing a Latina/Latino food blogger.
  2. Learn about Mexican history and culture: Take the time to educate yourself and your guests about the significance of Cinco de Mayo. Share interesting facts about Mexican traditions, customs, and heritage.
  3. Create a festive ambiance: Decorate your space with vibrant colors like red, green, and white – the colors of the Mexican flag. If you have been to Mexico try to remember the colors from the landscape and the cacti you see (skip the cartoony cactus party decor, though). Incorporate colors from Mexican folk art or ceramics. It would take just a few minutes of research to put together a plan for your decorating that isn’t what you would typically find at Party City.
  4. Play Mexican music: Set the mood with lively Mariachi or traditional Mexican music playlists. Encourage your guests to dance and have fun while enjoying the festivities.
  5. Mix up margaritas: Since margaritas are a popular drink associated with Cinco de Mayo, why not make some delicious variations? Experiment with different flavors. Make a classic 3-Ingredient Margarita, Strawberry Lemonade Margarita, or jalapeño-infused margaritas.
  6. Support local Mexican businesses: If possible, order food from local Mexican restaurants or purchase ingredients from Mexican grocery stores to support the community.
