Cinco de Mayo is a time to celebrate Mexican culture and heritage. It's also a great opportunity to show your eco-friendly side! This year, why not decorate your Cinco de Mayo party with some fun, eco-friendly decorations? In this blog post, we will share 5 ideas for Cinco de Mayo decorations that are both festive and environmentally friendly. Let's get started!
Cinco De Mayo Decorations
Eco-Friendly Party Decorations for your Cinco De Mayo Fiesta
- Upcycle Jars & Add in Some Greenery
Instead of buying new decorations, try upcycling some jars or bottles that you already have at home. Simply clean and rinse out the jars, then add in some colorful paper or fabric. Fill the bottom of the jar with gravel or sand, then add a small plant. This makes for a great eco-friendly decoration that can be used year after year. You can also use mason jars or other types of glass jars to create this decoration.
- Use Reusable Cinco De Mayo Banners
Another great way to decorate for Cinco de Mayo while being eco-friendly is to use reusable banners. These can be made from fabric or paper, and you can even make them yourself! If you're not the DIY type, there are plenty of eco-friendly Cinco de Mayo banners available for purchase online. Simply hang them up around your party space for a festive and environmentally friendly decoration.
- Make Your Own Piñata
Piñatas are a Cinco de Mayo tradition, and they're also a great way to be eco-friendly! You can easily make your own piñata using recycled materials. Simply gather up some old newspapers or cardboard, then follow a simple DIY piñata tutorial. Once you've made your piñata, fill it with eco-friendly Cinco de Mayo treats like candy made with organic ingredients. Hanging these up is a great substitute to colorful balloons as well. (Yes, they're pretty, but that latex isn't very environment positive!)
- Create a Cacti Centerpiece
For a Cinco de Mayo decoration that is both festive and eco-friendly, try creating a cacti centerpiece. Cacti are easy to care for and they add a pop of green to any space. Simply choose a large pot or bowl, then fill it with gravel or sand. Add in a few small cacti, then decorate around the base with stones or shells. This makes for a beautiful and eco-friendly Cinco de Mayo decoration that will last for years to come. Pro tip: Chili peppers can add nice pops of color to the centerpiece!
- Use Eco-Friendly Cinco De Mayo Tablecloths
Another great way to decorate your Cinco de Mayo party in an eco-friendly way is to use eco-friendly tablecloths. There are many options available, from tablecloths made of recycled materials to those that are biodegradable. Simply choose the tablecloth that best fits your needs and do up a Cinco de Mayo party table your guests will love.
We hope you enjoyed these five ideas for eco-friendly Cinco de Mayo party decorations. With a little creativity, it's easy to celebrate Mexican heritage while being kind to the environment. ¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
