Mexican Fiesta Theme Party

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, this Mexican fiesta celebration will have you mixing up margaritas in no time.

Check out these fun ideas full of fiesta fun with sombreros, salsa, yummy dips, Mexican decor and more to plan a fiesta theme party your guests will love.

Add a bit of sophisticated style to your Mexican fiesta. A few traditional fiesta theme party decor elements combined with colorful sombreros, a serape and more will transform your space to a fun Mexican fiesta!

Serving drinks and snacks on a side table is a great way to allow fiesta theme party guests to mingle and move about freely. The white ruffled table covering (actually a shower curtain) reminds us of ladies classic Mexican dresses, while the serape adds a more traditional touch. Another classic element is paper flowers. You can make them yourself and place them around the fiesta.

Give your guests choices for their chips. A simple salsa, a guacamole dip, and a corn & bean dip should please every palette. To quench their thirsts you can serve Mexican sodas. These are served in a crate lined with a water-proof container to hold ice and keep the bottles chilled.

Mexican wedding cookies are a sweet treat your guests can help themselves to, as they are served in small terra cotta pots and labeled with a Mexican paper flag.

A stylish dining table doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive to create for a fiesta theme party. Bright mix-n-match colors of the margarita glasses, mini sombreros and other special touches exude a casual fun atmosphere typical of a Mexican fiesta.

Each place has a different colored napkin, topped with a different colored paper flower. The plates are a perfect themed addition for only $1 each!

Add a charming detail by using tiny sombreros as name cards! Simply lean them against a large pepper so everyone knows exactly where to sit.

Margaritas are the drink of choice for any Mexican fiesta. A lime placed on a wooden skewer is the perfect garnish, of course.

The centerpiece is simply an array of colored glass bottles & vases filled with 1-2 blooms each. The collection clustered together creates a massive look.

The perfect activity for any Mexican fiesta is a photo area with props. With sombreros, serapes, mustaches on a stick, and maracas, it’s easy to get into the spirit! All you need to do is hang a sheet for the backdrop, and add a classic Mexican fiesta cut-out banner. Ole!
