I love a last-minute party! What is more fun that inviting your friends over for the weekend to wind down after a long week at work? Cinco de Mayo is the perfect holiday to put together a quick party for your friends and neighbors!
I'm going to show you how easy it can be with my budget-friendly ideas to make your next party awesome and inexpensive!  
Let's zest up your fiesta with RO*TEL's Rockin' Guac and Bud Light's Lime-A-Ritas!

One of the best party supplies for a budget is crepe paper! It's a party classic and since it comes in every color of the rainbow, it's perfect for a variety of themes. I made this backdrop with crepe paper that I had lying around in my party stash for the past few years. All I did was use a wooden dowel, and I taped crepe paper to it and hung it from my ceiling. I used this vanity piece in my kitchen to display the yummy food!
Then, I picked up these tissue ball banners at the craft store in the party section. 

The first thing I made was this YUMMY Rockin' Guac Recipe from RO*TEL! 
You can find the recipe on their website, or on my blog a few weeks ago. I always have RO*TEL in my pantry, but it never occurred to me to use it in guacamole until recently! And, it's delicious!
And, it only takes 4 ingredients! Anyone can handle that, right? 

I offered some white corn and some blue corn tortilla chips in these baskets that I picked up at the dollar section of a local store. I also got these little plastic succulents there!
Then, I used a little wooden stand from my party closet to give the dip some height. 
And if you are having guacamole, then you definitely need to have some margaritas right? 
These Bud Light Lime-A-Ritas ® are the perfect combination of beer and margarita in an awesome take-home can! No messing with mixing up a batch of margaritas, you simply crack them open and drink! They might be my new favorite thing. 

On the opposite side of the table, I did some cute mini appetizer tacos! You can get these in the freezer section of your local grocery store. My kiddos like them because they are little and cute! I displayed them on mini plastic colored forks in this three-tier galvanized stand. I added some styrofoam and some bag shred to make the little containers a little more festive and to hold up the little forks. 

And, of course, you need dessert at your party!
These are little store-bought cupcakes that I customized to match my theme. They were Superman themed and I took off the store-topper and added some rainbow sprinkles to match my backdrop. And voila, matching cupcakes!
Looking at this yummy bowl of RO*TEL Rockin' Guac makes me so hungry!!
I need to make some right now!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!!
