Cinco de Mayo Invitations

Announce Your Fiesta In Style

Cinco de Mayo invitations are the perfect way to get everyone in a festive mood for your Cinco de Mayo parties! Vivid and simple, these invitations let the partygoers know from the minute they open their envelopes that they're in for a heck of a good time. The invites even give a clue as to your Cinco de Mayo decorations.

While you're at it, give your guests something that'll build the anticipation. A great way to do this is to include a list of Cinco de Mayo events you have planned for the evening. For example, simple salsa dancing instructions, like below, are a wonderful way to get the pre-party mood going. Each step is on a separate count/beat, with the woman and man mirroring each other.

Woman
  1. Right foot, step backward
  2. Left foot, step in place
  3. Right foot, step back to your left foot
  4. Pause
  5. Left foot, step forward
  6. Right foot, step in place
  7. Left foot, step back to your right foot
  8. Pause
Man
  1. Left foot, step forward
  2. Right foot, step in place
  3. Left foot, step back to your right foot
  4. Pause
  5. Right foot, step backward
  6. Left foot, step in place
  7. Right foot, step back to your left foot
  8. Pause

Another cool option is to include a Cinco de Mayo music list in your invitations. Your guests can download music from iTunes to become familiar with the music, practice their salsa moves, or just get in the mood. And of course, there's the obvious (well, obvious to sweets-loving me): add a piece of candy that never made its way into the piñata!

Some of your activities for Cinco de Mayo require that you let your guests know about them ahead of time. It's kinda hard to have a Lucha Libre Wrestling Costume Contest without a little advance notice. For this activity, in addition to their costumes, ask your partygoers to consider their aliases for the evening.

Just like a salsa dance, your Cinco de Mayo celebrations need to get off on the right foot, and our Cinco de Mayo invitations are just the ticket. So get those invitations out 3 to 4 weeks prior to the big day. And just to be clear, we all know Cinco de Mayo is the 5th of May, right?
