Game Day Glam

Yay for football season! Gah, we missed those days of dressing up in our maroon and gold (GO SUNDEVILS!) to show off our school spirit. There are so many cute and fun ways to be game day glam so you can stand out from all of the other fans. First, head to Michael's Craftstore and snag some rhinestones. Deck your game day shirt with rhinestone bling and you will definitely catch people's attention. Buy fabric in your school's colors and cut them into strips. Tie each strip to a simple head tie and eventually it will be a cute ring of fabric on the head tie that you can tie onto your hair or even use as a fun form of a bracelet. You just can't go wrong buying eyeshadow and lip stick in your school colors. Colourpop is the absolute best site to snag the lipstick as their lip products are $5 {talk about a secret steal!}. Buy some fun accessories to throw around your neck like beads and pom poms to wave that you can get at Party City, Oriental Trading Company, or Stumps.

Whatever you do, get all decked out and rep your team to the fullest!

Mini Fiesta

Are you ready for one of the biggest celebrations of the year where sombreros, margaritas, and tortillas are the norm for the day?! We are! It's time for CINCO DE MAYO!! May 5th in the United States is a day of celebration for Mexican heritage and pride. If you're thinking of putting together a mini fiesta, here are some of the essentials you will need to make it un perfecto:

#1 Decorations

Where red, green, yellow, and orange are just some of the typical fiesta colors, decoration must haves include: fiesta table cloth, maracas, pinatas, fiesta colored paper lanterns, festive lights, fiesta colored streamers, napkins, plates, and cutlery. Use cute fiesta-inspired printables to decorate everything on your food table. Check out these cute, free printables here! Sombreros and 'staches are fun fiesta-wear so incorporate them in your decor too! There are always sections in every party store, like Party City, dedicated to Cinco de Mayo decorations so get creative!

#2 Food & Drinks

It's time for some south-of-the-border tasty fun! Food & drink must haves include: icy cold Mexican drinks, chips & salsa, guacamole, chicken-tortilla soup, 7-layer dip, chilli, quesadillas, burritos and tacos. Since tacos are more of a main course, set up a taco bar! Use colorful trays to separate all the toppings – cheese, lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, olives, and choices of salsa. For dessert, have churros & sopapillas! Click here for specific Cinco de Mayo recipes!

#3 Entertainment

Although bringing in professional Mexican dancers would make for an authentic experience, save some money and select a station on Pandora or simply download traditional Mexican music from Amazon or iTunes!

We hope you are now ready to plan your next Cinco de Mayo mini fiesta!
