5 Fiesta Must-Haves for Cinco de Mayo

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

With a little help from the inspiring novelty party favors and decorations at Private Island Party my fiesta will be filled with sombreros, salsa and followed by a serious siesta.  With a teen, tween and a toddler in our home, everyday is a party day.  The fun just never ends, now all we need are tacos, burritos, and cerveza (ID required).  Here are a few of my Cinco de Mayo fiesta finds from Private Island Party.




Grab a pair of Two-Tone Maracas - Shake! Shake! Shake Senora! There has to be music to start the party and these maracas are party perfect.  With a toddler and a tween armed with maracas, there was a whole lot of shaking going on in our house!

Finger Lights - Lights On! Party On!  The party does not have to end when the sun goes down.  You will have light at the touch of a finger with these finger lights.  These rocking finger lights 4-pack are all the rave in red, blue, white and green assorted colors.  Kids. Love. Them.

Slip into party mode with Incognito Mustache Glasses - Our teen wants them, our tween grabbed them!  These glasses are a unique novelty that will make you (or was that you?) the life of the party.  The clear lenses of the glasses give you a clear view to the fiesta in progress, the attached mustache keeps you out of view for anonymous fun. Selfies are a must!  

Wave your Mexican Flag - Cinco de Mayo is certainly a time for celebration and appreciation of all things Mexican.  The origin of Cinco de Mayo is in commemorationof the Mexican army claiming victory over France in the Franco-Mexican War on May 5,1862.  Our family keeps a Mexican flag in honor of the heritage of my paternal grandmother.  ¡Viva México!


*Have Fun!  *This item is not available in stores.  That's my tween, he's incognito!

What are your "must-haves" for a party?  In our home, having fun is always the most important part of party planning.
