Here are some Cinco de Mayo images.... it may give you some idea about color combos.

I am guessing you would need to use bold red, green, and white. Maybe make all spikes one color and the bow another color with a surround another color? If you mix them up too much then it will look a little Christmasy.

I would suggest using more white than green and red and adding some yellow.

I was going to say the same thing. More white than red and green. Maybe spikes on the top green, spikes on the bottom red, and the bow white. Or maybe a green pinwheel with white spikes and a red twisted on top.

Not sure if this is going to be all that much help but maybe find some sort of center for the bow that say's cinco de mayo, not litterally but figurativly, kwim?... that way the colors aren't the only thing that represents what you're going for. Like maybe a chili pepper or sombrarro?

I am in AZ and Cinco de mayo is big here! I would add yellow for sure and I think you will; need a center of some sort to make it really be Cinco de Mayo. Did you look on etsy for a flatback or bottlecap?

I always use emerald green instead of apple green i don't know why but it works best for me and looks less Christmasy also look for a bottlecap or something that will help alot
