10 must haves for your Cinco de Mayo celebration

Cinco de Mayo is just another excuse for a party here in the United States. Most of us probably don’t even realize the significance of the day and until I researched it, I didn’t either. The fifth of May is a holiday commemorating an unlikely victory of the Mexican army’s over France during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. But before I lull you to sleep with a history lesson, {Bueller, Bueller} you can join the irony that while for most Mexicans it’s just another day, Americans have adopted it as a widespread celebration! What can we say? We like to party with tacos! Cinco de Mayo has now become synonymous with Mexican culture and I’ve rounded up a list of ten must have pieces to host a fabulous fiesta!

1. No time to Siesta, It’s time to Fiesta:
