Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner! The holiday celebrating the Battle of Puebla in 1862 has grown into a large celebration of Mexican culture. As with other holidays, this is a great time to invite family, friends, and new neighbors to eat, drink, and be merry in your new home. Make sure you are prepared to put together the perfect party and have a good time celebrating in your new home!
Food and Drink
There is no reason to go all-out cooking, especially if you are having a large group of people over. Keep it light! Drinks and appetizers are perfect for a social setting and provide plenty of flavor for the party. There are seemingly limitless margarita recipes online (both frozen and on the rocks), and appetizers like queso, salsa, and guacamole are guaranteed crowd-pleasers – just make sure you prepare enough! If you do decide to make a meal, spring is perfect grilling weather and a great reason to try out the grill at the new house.
Holidays are the perfect time to show off your new home, and setting up decorations can bring attention to some of your favorite spots. You don’t have to overdo decorations, but brightly colored paper cutouts and festive tablecloths, napkin holders, and other accessories will compliment the atmosphere and your home. Make sure to have paper plates, plastic utensils, and disposable margarita cups to make things easier for you after the party.
If things start getting slow at your get-together, why not spice things up with a little salsa? (Music, that is!) Have your speakers ready and make sure you have prepared some dance moves ahead of time. Music is a great way to get a party back on the right track.
