Cinco de Mayo Tips

  1. Display the green, white and red flag of Mexico (Bandera de México).Then use these colors as much as possible - in plates, utensils, streamers and signs. Serve food and beverages in Mexican pottery and multicolored glass.
  2. Use Mexican carpets or blankets for table runners or placemats. Put blankets on chairs outside or around the fireplace for use when the evening turns cooler. Line bowls with colorful cloth napkins and fill them with bright green limes, fire-red peppers and yellow bell peppers to punch up your table-scape.
  3. Dress the part. For men, a Serape or shawl in a striped pattern, a pair of jeans or brown pants, and cowboy boots are perfect. For women a white blouse and ruffled skirt edged with the colors of the Mexican flag look lovely. Alternatively, add flair with more traditional clothing like a fringed blouse embroidered with bright colored silk, beads and flowers and a long A-lined or circular skirt decorated with sequins, hand embroidered flowers and designs or colorful strips of ribbon.

So, celebrate in style. And, after the festivities, let Tide Cleaners help with the cleanup so your clothes and linens will be fresh and ready for next year.
