8 Fun Ways to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at Home

8 Fun Ways to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at Home

Just because we're indoors doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo — here are 8 fun ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at home.

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo at home can be just as fun as going out!

Cinco de Mayo is one of those fun holidays that we get really excited about! Usually, we meet up with our close friends or family and head out to our favorite Mexican restaurants. However, this year while we are practicing social distancing, we can’t go out and celebrate. Fret not, ladies and gents. We have you covered with these 8 fun ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at home.


1. Make Traditional Mexican Food

One of the best things about Cinco de Mayo is all the wonderful Mexican food. Instead of ordering out this year, challenge yourself by making traditional Mexican food. Traditionally people eat carnitas, mole poblano, and more on Cinco de Mayo. If you are interested in making mole poblano, the Spruce Eats has your back.

2. Learn the History About Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo isn’t just about the delicious margaritas and Mexican food. It's full of rich history that people from Mexico have been celebrating since 1862. For example, did you know that Cinco de Mayo is celebrated to commemorate the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla? To learn more information head over to, and share those nuggets of knowledge with friends and family.

3. Make Your Own Margaritas

Just because margaritas didn’t originate in Mexico (we know, we were surprised, too!), doesn’t mean you can’t make your own this Cinco de Mayo. All you need is tequila, your favorite margarita mix, lime, ice, and salt/sugar. If you like the original margarita flavor, Food Network has a recipe that you need to try out. 

4. Cook Up Some Queso

You have your traditional Mexican food and margaritas made, but don’t leave your kitchen just yet! Spice up this Cinco de Mayo with some delicious queso. Delish has a yummy but easy queso recipe that you need to try out ASAP.


5. Get Festive With the Decorations

The best way to get excited for a Cinco de Mayo celebration at home is to put up festive decorations. Now that we have some extra time in our lives, it’s time to get creative. You can make streamers, pinatas, paper flowers, and more to brighten up your home.

6. Get Dressed Up

Nothing quite like getting dressed up for a holiday to put you in a celebratory mood - even if you're just inside by yourself. No traditional Mexican outfits around? No problem! Throw on a bright red or blue festive dress or outfit to honor the day. The brighter the colors, the better, and to take your outfit to the next level, you can incorporate flowers to your wardrobe or hair.


7. Do a Fun Cinco de Mayo Makeup Look

Now that you have your outfit picked out, it’s time to get your makeup done. Go for bright, fun colors for this makeup look. A very popular makeup look that many others try out on Cinco de Mayo is by using the colors on the Mexican flag — red, green, and white.

8. Have a Video Party With Your Besties

Since you have all the food and drinks made, time to party by video calling all your friends. Throw on some fun tunes and enjoy talking and dancing with all your closest friends, wherever they may be.

With these 8 fun ideas in mind, it’s time to eat and celebrate Cinco de Mayo at home!
