There’s no question that Cinco de Mayo marks the official beginning of summer in Texas. With students wrapping up the school year and the introduction of blazing hot weather, I can’t imagine anything more worthy of poolside celebration. Of course, no party is truly complete without favors, so for a fiesta-themed cocktail party we styled for HGTV.com, we printed these festive bags and stuffed them with homemade pralines for guests to take home. We’ve got the template here for you to download and print yourselves, and then fill with whatever treat you so desire. Keep reading for the complete instructional and be sure to stop by later today for the perfect Cinco de Mayo cocktail!
