DIY paper banners for Cinco de Mayo


Several blogs offer instructions for making simplified papel picado (perforated paper) banners. These would be fun to whip up for a Cinco de Mayo shindig or birthday party. Find directions here:
Papel picado streamers by Studio DIY
Papel picado in purple and pink at Green Wedding Shoes
A downloadable template for papel picado from Happy Thought
Arrow-inspired garland by Lovely Indeed

Also see instructions for mini papel picado-inspired cupcake flags and straws. Consider succulents planted in cans for table decorations or party favors, too— like this or this. Little cacti are usually quite cheap at Home Depot.

Seems to me I've seen little cacti used for placecard holders recently. How are yours doing?

BTW, you want to see a country bathes in orange? Check out Queen Beatrix' abdication and new King Of the Netherlands on 4/30/2013..., not a single person in the country not wearing orange :-)

Thank you for posting this! I have lots of ideas for my party on Monday (c'mon what Monday doesn't need a delayed Cinco De Mayo margarita?) thanks to the epic links you left!
