cinco de mayo margarita kit // favors

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.

i've started thinking ahead (obviously with this and this post from earlier this week) and toying around with cinco de mayo party ideas i'd love to use if we end up having a few friends over.

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.

you could even tuck in your own recipe for guests to take home.

check back next week because now i have to share mine!

ps. if you're looking for more inspiration, i am participating in clinton kelly's celebrate cinco de mayo challenge, you can see all of the projects here!
