14 Ways to Throw the Ultimate Fiesta
We are always looking for an excuse to whip up guac and sip on margaritas, so we’re basically counting down the days until we can throw a fiesta for Cinco de Mayo. One of the best parts of a Cinco de Mayo theme is the amount of color involved, and did we mention all the fringe? We’re sharing the best fiesta decor out there, though be warned: It might make you want to throw a party immediately.
1. Piñata Your Party: Turn your food table into a fringe showcase with a few sheets of tissue paper. Transfix your friends with your DIY skills and make your party the best fiesta in town. (via Brit + Co)
2. Drink Decor: Have fun with your beverages by swapping drinks labels with a colorful printable. To add even more decor, make some mini flowers with tissue paper and add them on too. (via Kara’s Party Ideas)
11. Colorful Dishes: Here’s your excuse to buy those pretty plates you’ve always wanted. Get ready for your dishware to stand out and make everything else on your table look fiesta ready. (via Ruffled)
12. Party Entrance: This DIY sparkly entrance demonstrates how you can make any theme your own. A fiesta should be colorful, and we think glitter totally counts as a color.
13. Jumbo Papel Picado: Jumbo perforated paper makes for an easy and inexpensive outdoor decoration. Try hanging them around empty spaces, so every inch of your event is photo friendly. (via Camille Styles)
