Don’t Forget To Add The Festive Decor

In case you’re stumped for ideas, here are a few simple ways to enhance your Cinco de Mayo celebration.

Instead of tossing your cans into the recycling bin, clean them out and put them to work! If you’re using El Pato brand (found normally in the Hispanic foods aisle at your local grocery store), you can turn them into festive table centerpieces for your Cinco de Mayo event.

Grab some extra limes at the store while you’re picking up ingredients for your salsa and guac. Cut them up and throw them into your ice cube trays to make great, flavored ice cubes for your drinks.
