A Mexican Fiesta party is so colourful and fun, it allows you to explode with a bright vibrant colour palate. For this party we have a Mexican dessert table, Mexican Decorating ideas, Mexican Fiesta birthday Cake, Mexican favours, Mexican games and a set of free printables so you can create this party at home.
We hope you enjoy.
We made three types of decorated sugar cookies for this party including guitars, maracas and Chili peppers, the cookie cutters were all found in on-line cake decorating stores.
The stars of the dessert table were a pair of Mexican Bull Pinatas. They graced either side of a Mexican Fiesta Birthday cake.
I always try and include fruit in my dessert tables and find fruit skewers allow you to be creative while serving a healthy treat, that said it is a dessert table so we included a set of harlequin margarita glasses from pottery barn filled with assorted bright coloured candy.
We found a cute Chili table cloth for the dessert table and decorated beverage bottles with Mexican hats and printed labels available as a free download.
Tall displays of balloons are a must at parties, I’ve included bright Mexican bull and Fiesta balloons
The ceiling was covered with helium balloons and fiesta bunting, we used colourful pink and blue glasses, maracas and Mexican party decorations.
Mexican Party Birthday Cake
The birthday cake depicted a Mexican fiesta with hanging flags, a pinata, cactus and balloons, while I have broken some rules by including non-edible components the cake was easy to assemble and enjoyed by the children.
Mexican Party Favours
This party included two party favours. We included a living succulent favour in a really decorative pot with a thank you card and a small jar of layered candy treats with a Mexican hat topper.
We painted “Fiesta” in bright colours on the candy jars, the thank you notes are available as a free download.
Mexican Party Games
We had a number of games and activities at this party including a photo booth, scavenger hunt, Guess the Jars, Pinata, pass the parcel, Mexican hat Dancing and more. The photo booth was a real hit and it was so easy to create. We used a lot of crepe streamers and attached them to the wall to create a bright stripped backdrop, we then attached a colourful boarder.
A Pinata, filled with treats provided a real challenge.
We created scavenger hunt for this party that is available as a free download. Each child had to find 8 unique Mexican themed cards as part of the hunt, these cards we carefully placed both inside and outside and provided lots of fun for the children. A prize was offered for the first one to find the cards.
We also played some traditional party games including, guess the number of items in the jar and Pass the Parcel
This was a great party and a really good choice of theme that allows you to be creative using simple bursts of colour from streamers and balloons.
