PARTY TRENDS – SPRING 2012

Tis the season to throw a fiesta. Cinco De Mayo is here and it is all about celebrating and having a good time! If you are going to throw a fabulous party you just need a few things: some bright and colorful decorations, festive food and drinks, and a touch of Mexican culture. Cinco De Mayo opens up the month of May with a bang of color and celebration and welcomes in other reasons to celebrate May such as graduations, Mother’s Day, and Memorial Day. I have compiled some fun ideas for a Cinco De Mayo party, but these ideas can also be incorporated in any other May party you may be throwing. Here are some of the newest trends and ideas in party throwing for May 2012.Party Decorating
  1. This is an easy way to make flowers look chic and festive! Just find a fun old coffee tin (with fun colors, of course!) and use it as a vase! This can be the perfect centerpiece for any tablescape.
  2. For a fun flare, make your own decorations with bright colored tissue paper. Simply cut fringes into a square and attach them to a string. Doesn’t get much simpler than that!
  3. These flowers are fabulous DIY decorations. For a full tutorial, please click here.
