Pinata Day & Cinco de Mayo

IMG_8508-768x1024Did you know tomorrow is National Pinata Day? Well, I’m sure you know Cinco de Mayo is in a few weeks, so talking pinatas seems quite timely. I’ve always loved a pinata, but once I discovered Lula Flora, I found myself looking for ways to incorporate them into a party or a simple Tex-Mex dinner.

Lula Flora creates customized pinatas, which are perfect for place settings, party favors or surprise gifts. They’ve gone beyond the expected shapes, so if you can dream it they can make it.il_570xN.951108598_iol9 il_570xN.1081999309_340s il_570xN.1141572220_a0p8il_570xN.980193198_hr13 il_570xN.1161818046_a5fsil_570xN.925694706_pg8j il_570xN.1205767933_mdzp IMG_8529-e1461274864488-768x1024So if your fiesta needs a little kick, order some custom pinatas and they’ll be the figurative and literal “hit” of your party!

Cinco de Mayo – Personalized Piñatas

Happy May! 

There are a lot of fun days to celebrate this month: The Kentucky Derby, Mother’s Day and Memorial Day, but one of my all time favorites is Cinco di Mayo!!! I’m sure it’s a Texas-thing. Tex-Mex is hands down my favorite food category. Give me a a basket of chips and guacamole and a fresh made margarita (on the rocks with salt, please), and I am a happy gal!

I’ve been playing around with table settings for a casual celebration and had to share my new source for custom, mini piñatas

Lula Flora will let you select as many tissue colors + 1 metallic color for your custom piñata! I chose hot pink, lime green, orange, purple, yellow and gold metallic. 
These are very well made, with a hidden opening for candy or small treats. I’m not sure I have the heart to rip these apart, as they make for such a cute party favor or place card for a fiesta any time!

Wishing you mucho fun this weekend! Whether you’re watching the Derby with mint juleps or sitting on the sidelines of your child’s sporting events!

Life is the fiesta!! Make yours full of color!!

Almost Cinco de Mayo

Are you as ready for Friday as I am?! I was actually deep in the heart of Texas this past week, helping my mom. She was in a serious car accident and spent 2 weeks in the hospital and will have a long road of healing ahead. There was a silver lining though. I love “going home” and when do you actually get 6 uninterrupted days with your mother? Pretty much the perfect Mother’s Day gift for me. But, as I was there to help out and not to hang out….I didn’t have a single TexMex meal. Not a one. Unless you count the spicy guacamole I kept bringing back from Whole Foods. I have a thing about guacamole. You could say I’m addicted. 

Which is why it just seems perfect, as this weekend is upon us, to give a little nod to my Texas roots and give a shout out for Cinco de Mayo. Margaritas, anyone?!

Do you like your tacos mild or spicy? Margaritas on the rocks or frozen? Beer with a lime or a lime fresca (you gotta try this recipe)? Whatever your desire…..I hope your weekend is hot, hot, hot!!!
