Make this Cinco de Mayo celebration special!

Hola Amigos!

With Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, we thought this would be the perfect time to shed some light on a few interesting facts on the celebration.

As you all know, Cinco de Mayo is celebrated on May 5th every year. There is a common misconception that it is Mexico’s Independence Day. But the fact is it occurred 50 years prior to the Battle of Puebla and is celebrated on September 16. Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico’s victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

The holiday actually celebrates an unexpected victory. The Mexican army defeated the French in spite of being smaller and ill-equipped. In Mexico, the day is remembered with political speeches and battle reenactments.

In United States, Cinco de Mayo is more widely and enthusiastically celebrated with parades, food, dancing, music and more. The first celebration was held in California in 1863 with street parades, feasts, and even bullfights. In fact, the world’s largest Cinco de Mayo celebration takes place in Los Angeles.

What does Easter bunny have to do with Easter?

Let’s rejoice, for this is the time to celebrate!

Easter, the most important holiday which celebrates Jesus Christ’s resurrection is finally here. It has been called a moveable feast since it doesn’t fall on a fixed date as other celebrations do. It also marks the beginning of spring symbolizing new life and birth.

People around the world celebrate Easter in a variety of ways depending on the traditions they follow. In US, Easter is celebrated with much vigor and pomp. It is the tradition here to conduct parades, carnivals, egg decorations, feasts and much more. Easter bunny is an integral part of the celebration. Ask a kid what Easter is all about and he/she is sure to tell you about the Easter bunny and finding the Easter basket filled with all goodies.

Easter-bunny

The origin of Easter bunny can be traced back to 13th century when people held feasts in the honor of the Teutonic deity Eostra, the goddess of spring and fertility. Rabbit has been the symbol of the goddess because of the animal’s high reproduction rate.

Easter bunny was first brought in to the country by the German settlers during the 1700s. Eventually, the custom spread across the entire country. Kids believe that Easter rabbits lay eggs for them to find on Easter day. The night before Easter, they leave basket for the Easter bunny to put eggs in. Today, eggs has been replaced by chocolates and candies. This folkloric figure is depicted as a rabbit carrying Easter eggs in a basket. Yet another popular tradition is holding parades on the Easter Sunday. It dates back to mid-1800s. People dress up in new and trendy clothes.

Irrespective of the traditions, costumes play an important role in making your Easter an unforgettable experience. Whether it is for Parades, or Egg hunting or simply dressing up, we have Easter bunny costumes from infants to adults. We also have a fantastic selection of Biblical and religious costumes if you are planning to stage religious plays.

Cheers to St Patrick’s Day!

A simple thought of St Patrick’s Day will put you into a mood for beer, especially green beer. It’s a day to drink, eat and be merry! Saint Patrick’s Day is traditionally a religious holiday. However today it has become more like a secular celebration. Among the many traditions followed, drinking has become a must-do activity. There are some classic drinking games associated with St Patty’s day celebration to make the festivities fun and enjoyable.

Beer Pong

In this classic game of beer pong, the player throws a ping-pong ball or a tennis ball into plastic cups of the opposite team without knocking them down. Once a ball lands in a cup, the content of the cup is consumed by the player. You can convert this game into St Patrick ’s Day Beer Pong by decorating the plastic cups with four-leaf-clover stickers and filling the cups with green beer.

Shot Potato

This game is played exactly like the hot potato game. Instead of going out, here the loser is punished with a shot. Get a group of friends in circle and pass a potato with some Irish music playing in the background. When the music stops, whoever has the potato needs to take a shot. To give a St Patrick’s touch, paint shamrocks over the potato and use green beer for shots.

Power Hour

In this game, players drink a specified number of alcohol shots in an hour. The last person standing is declared as the winner of the game. To make it a St Patty’s drinking game, use green beer for shots.

What could be more fun than playing all these games in our hilarious St Patrick’s Day costumes? Our impressive selection of St Patrick’s Day costumes and accessories is sure to please you.

Drinking games are sure to give everyone a fun time. But remember to drink sensibly and know when to stop drinking!

Happy St Patrick’s Day!!!

Halloween foodie fun!

Today we’re bringing you two awesome ways to spice up the snacks at your Halloween party!  We are huge advocates of trying new things and these two super easy to make snacks require NO cooking!  (that’s the part we love too!) 

1.  No Mess Caramel Apples:  Caramel apples are always a big favorite at Halloween and seasonal parties, but what about the mess they cause.  You know, you’re all dressed up and those apples are just staring at you saying, “eat me, I’m delicious!”  And yes, they’re delicious but you don’t want to smear your make-up, drip on your costume, or look like a pig devouring a big ‘ol apple covered in caramel.  Plus, most times the apples are just too big, who wants to eat an entire apple in the middle of a party?  That’s exactly why we’ve tried a new caramel apple! 

-Slice the apples

-Stick a toothpick in them

-Dip in caramel

-Lay them out on a platter

-Cover in theme colored sprinkles (use orange, black, blues, and purples for Halloween)

-Add a few strawberries for prettiness!

That’s it!  Now you’ve made a simple and delightful snack!  No one has to look goofy chewing on a huge apple on a stick, those “dieters” won’t feel bad about these, and it looks gorgeous!

 

2.  Bloody Zombie Eye Deviled Eggs:  Come on who doesn’t love deviled eggs!?  That’s why they are a must for your Halloween party, but let’s add a twist to these scrumptious snacks! 

-Make deviled eggs as you normally would

-Add red (or green) food dye to the yolk mix, if you’re using red, use a lot so they don’t come out pink.  You’ll also need a full bottle to make them green!

-Fill your eggs with the colored mix

-Add the pupil, the center of the eye, this can easily be a sliced olive.  The olives taste great with deviled eggs, so you’ll just have to decide if you want to use a black or green olive.

-Gently squirt some food dye for the blood splashed look!

That’s it!  Yes, you’ll be hesitant to eat them….at first, but once you get past that you realize they taste awesome and double as creepy decor!  Yum!

 

Make Your Brew To Die For!

If you are planning a Halloween party then there are a couple of things you will HAVE to have.  Let’s see….drinks and decorations for sure!  These fabulouse bottle labels actually double as both your party drinks and decorations!  They are too funny and we’ve got labels for every bottle type!  That’s right we’ve got labels for wine, beer, liquor, and even soda – all with awesome Halloweeny themed brew sayings.  Check them out:
