With most of the Neatly Nested team vaccinated, we were able to celebrate an early and socially distanced Cinco de Mayo gathering at my home! Did you know that Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War? Today, the holiday has evolved into a day to commemorate Mexican culture and heritage. For more info about Cinco de Mayo, read here.
Our Cinco de Mayo gathering was an excellent opportunity to use some of our new products and support one of our neighbors - Loco Taqueria! Read on for inspiration as you plan your own Cinco de Mayo celebration.
For our Cinco de Mayo celebration, we used this medium-sized white board from Etu to display some appetizers and drink garnishes. If you love guacamole, you need this ceramic bowl which reads “It’s five o’guac somewhere.” It comes with a serving silverplate spoon that says “Holy guacamole.” The Neatly Nested team is obsessed with Brumate’s Shaker Pint, which doubles as a pint glass allowing you to craft the perfect beverage without breaking a sweat or making a mess.
These outdoor pillows from Foreside Home & Garden are an essential item to your patio furniture. Whether you are hosting friends or just want a cozier space for your family, these pillows really elevate the space while adding additional comfort. These stylish pillows are hand loomed by Indian artisans using techniques passed down from generations. Additionally, they are built-to-last and created with the environment in mind. The textiles are made out of recycled plastic bottles in an effort to reduce the amount of plastic pollution.
These sombrero taco holders allow you to hold and fill your tacos with ease! Each box comes with 4 festive colors - red, pink, blue and green.
The InBooze packets not only make great drinks, but are also a fun activity to make! Each handmade pouch is filled with dehydrated fruits, veggies, spices and herbs to infuse your choice of alcohol. The kit infuses enough for 8-10 cocktails and there are 11 flavors to choose from! For our gathering, I chose the Spicy Margarita, Classic Margarita and Strawberry Margarita paired with tequila.
One of our employees, Breegan, used Brumate’s Margtini.
The avocado canapé plates go perfectly with this set up and make clean up easy. Our “Carbs, Therapy, Cocktails” napkins are another fun addition.
