Feliz cinco de mayo! We’re celebrating today with inspiration, local finds, and a recipe!
I love these printable save the dates from Etsy seller IDoitYourself that mimic the look of papel picado.
These Talavera letterpress invitations are stunning! The white paper is reminiscent of the white glaze that is used to make this pottery standout. The pottery originates from Puebla, Mexico and etsy seller LetterpressLight has outdone herself with this suite!
Today also brings to mind a Tex-Mex baby shower I planned last year. Something Sweet made us some awesome (Read the full post here!) mini-cupcakes with cacti and sombrero toppers, guests took home favors of candy and mini cacti.
How fun would these banderas look in your guests hands sending you on your way? Love the detail in them- and Etsy seller AyMujer has an amazing array available!
We cannot truly celebrate Mexican independence without chocolate- one of the cornerstones of mexican history and culture! While it’s not mole, Sprinkles cupcakery is paying homage to this delectable treat with their choco loco cupcake!
Finally, it’s not cinco de mayo for me unless I’ve got a great cocktail in my hand. I’ve never met a margarita I didn’t like, but my all time favorite is a mojito. Spring calls for something light and fresh.. enter the Raspberry Mojito! Rachel Ray has a fabulous raspberry mojito recipe that is simple, easy, and DELISH! It’s a favorite in our household, hope you enjoy it too!
- Handful fresh mint leaves
- 3 whole fresh raspberries
- Juice of 1 lime
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 1/2 ounces spiced rum
- Splash club soda
- In a highball glass, muddle the mint, raspberries, lime juice and sugar. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice; add the rum and shake for 15 seconds. Pour into the glass and top with the club soda. Enjoy!
