When you think of Cinco de Mayo, you probably think of people donning sombreros and drinking margaritas. But there is so much more to it. It all began a long ago in a small Mexican town called Puebla. The town was occupied by the French when the Mexican Army, against great odds, defeated the French in that Battle of Puebla. What began as a celebration of an unlikely victory has evolved into a celebration of Mexican Culture. For 17 years, K2 Awards & Apparel has played an important role in helping our customers celebrate their victories and we continue that tradition by providing you with the awards and products to help you do that.
While it’s fun to celebrate by going to your local bar and restaurant, it’s easier than ever to throw your very own Cinco de Mayo fiesta! You can have fun decorating your home in green, red and white, get out your sombrero or maybe even put up a piñata. But why put up one piñata when you can make mini piñatas for all your guests? Not only is there less cleanup but all your guests can easily enjoy their own little treats. Have some empty cans or beer bottles around? Don’ take them to the recycling bin, paint or decorate them and fill them with easy to make Mexican tissue flowers!
There are so many fun things you can do to celebrate but let’s not forget a major highlight of
the evening — food and drinks! Margaritas are always on the menu but why not enjoy a margarita slushy shot in your very own custom engraved shot glass? And let’ not forget the beer. Our Premium K2OOZIE Beverage Holder is a great way to keep the cerveza nice and cold. For a fun twist on the usual salsa or bean dip, why not try serving up this five layer dip in your very own Personalized Mason Jar? What would a Cinco de Mayo party be without tacos? Serve them up buffet style by setting up your very own taco bar with all the fixings
Want to add a competitive edge to your fiesta? Having a chili cook off is a great way to do that. Have some of your guests bring in their own unique recipe and let your guests vote for their favorite. The lucky winner for best chili gets to go home with a Victory Tower Chili Cook Off Insert Trophy! For the runner ups, award them with a Diamond Chili Cook Off Insert Medal or a Fusion Chili Cook Off Medal. You can also have awards for the spiciest, most interesting recipe or just about any category you can dream up.
