Between the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo, there is a lot to celebrate this week. I love any excuse to have a get together with friends and make good food. Besides having potluck house parties is the recession friendly way to have fun these days. So I gathered a few recipes from my favorite party blog Hostess with the Mostess. She always has really unique and fun ideas for parties and recipes.
Delicious Mint Julep Cupcakes!
And for a little party inspiration, celebrate Cinco de Mayo outside with lots of bright blankets and beautiful garland strung from trees. Photograph from Absolutely Beautiful Things.
