3. Fun utensil wraps. A quick trip to the store will get you a load of plastic utensils in a rainbow of Cinco de Mayo colors. But if you want to work with what you have, consider using your existing utensils and wrapping them in festive ribbons (Hint: pull out your holiday wrapping items and find red, green, yellow, blue or any combination of ribbon colors). If you want the look of Mexican punched tin, grab some aluminum foil and get to work! Shape aluminum foil into rectangular strips, add a design with stamping tools or something from around the house, and use some hot glue to adhere -- or just fold/crimp the ends together. If you have any small flower pots around, they make great utensil holders.
4. Sparkling lights. As the sun goes down, be sure to light up your Cinco de Mayo party with strings of festive lights! (Hint: your holiday lights may do the trick) String them across the patio, in trees, around the front door, in standing plants, around a buffet table, or anywhere you'd like to add a little sizzle to your celebration.
5. Add some music. Even with all of the festive décor, no Cinco de Mayo party is complete without the right music. Download a mix of Mexican favorites (a quick online search will turn up plenty) to add some ambiance to your celebration. You could also just tune in to your local Mexican radio station or locate one online and turn up the fun!
