May Happy Mail Idea- Cinco de Mayo

Send a gift that gets your friends ready for the summer!  Enter to win our May Happy Mail and receive everything you see here!  Only on Lily & Val Living!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  May’s Happy Mail idea is perfect for celebrating this holiday, but it will also get you ready for your next summer fiesta!

Sending happy mail doesn’t need to be on a big budget or a large scale. A festive theme and a hand-written card will make it special. So grab a priority mail box, fill it up, and send to your BFF’s doorstep as a pick-me-up!

Keep the fiesta going on your snail mail!  Learn how to make your own pinata envelope on Lily & Val Living!

Our fun and summery “Hooray” note card made for the perfect card to pair with our fiesta goodies, and we topped it all off with a DIY pinata-inspired envelope!

To make your own:
Grab a few sheets of brightly-colored tissue paper and cut them into strips. Then,  cut a fringe across the edges of the tissue paper and layer the sheets onto the envelope with a bit of glue.

Pretty napkins and a delicious-smelling candle are two must-haves at your next summer fiesta!

This happy mail idea is all about hosting a fun, outdoor fiesta.  These festive  napkins will add color to your summer table settings, as well as those adorable patterned beverage coolers!  We added in one delicious-smelling coconut candle for party ambiance.

Last but not least, we included sparklers in our snail mail package!  A fun summer evening calls for a little sparkle, right?

In the spirit of sending a little love through the mail, we are giving away everything you see here to one lucky winner! Instructions for entering the giveaway are below…
