between running a business, early morning workouts and just generally begin exhausted, i'd say that partying on a weekday doesn't happen very often for us. and by partying i mean wearing something other than yoga pants, with other humans, potentially having more than one glass of wine. so, cinco de mayo isn't always something we celebrate. i will say though, i am totally ok with pretending those weekday holidays are on the weekend and celebrating accordingly… just so i don't miss out on all the fun.
one of my favorite things to plan for a party is the favors. you can get so creative and really infuse your theme here. and since my go-to cocktail is the margarita, any time of year, that is where my head instantly went for a cinco de mayo party favor! here's how to easily whip up a few of them if you are hosting a fun dinner party or gathering!
obviously, you need your main ingredients and mini bottles are perfect for not breaking the bank but surprising your friends. i filled my favor boxes with patron, grand marnier, a lime, a tiny vial of salt and 2 more with marg mix/triple sec and oj. i could have sworn i've shared my favorite margarita recipe with you before but i couldn't find it! i guess that means i'll have to take one for the team, work this weekend and shoot that for you;)
i grabbed these adorable tin boxes from michaels and added in fun calligraphy cocktail stirrers (will be in the shop soon) and packed everything up to place at each setting.
