Mexican Fiesta Party Color Ideas

There is certainly no shortage of colors when it comes to a Mexican theme. There are so many bold options to choose from.

We always recommend sticking with 3 or 4 basic colors (at most) and using the others as accents. It helps bring the color scheme together in a room and makes it easier to decide what decorations to buy in which color.

If you go with the red, green and white color scheme found in a Mexican flag make sure you use lots of the accent colors so that it doesn’t end up looking like Xmas.

Tie some hot peppers and the party details around the brim and use that as your invitation. Just imagine what it would be like to be the recipient of one of these invites?

And… don’t forget to tell your guests to bring their hats to the party—party hats go a long way in creating a festive mood and will add to the decoration and atmosphere at the party.

Fiesta Theme Party Ideas

The best way to make a big impression is to use inexpensive decorations and lots of them!  A Mexican Fiesta theme works perfectly for that. Many of the types of decorations you’ll need are inexpensive because they’re made out of paper, so go nuts and buy as much as your budget will allow.

Go for a ton of streamers, large paper PomPoms, hanging ornaments and don’t forget about balloons. Think of clever containers for stuff, like a blow-up plastic sombrero to hold ice and drinks.

Have fun with your table too… A Mexican theme can be made to look formal or casual, it’s all in the way you put things together.

For an engagement party, you may want a more formal or classy look…so use white dishes, white linens and clear glass to create a clean and neutral backdrop.

Then add fun and colorful Fiesta theme based candles, party favors, hanging decorations and even red and green hot peppers scattered throughout the table.

Limes are another great and inexpensive element to use for a Mexican theme. Make a centerpiece out of limes and flowers like on this cover of Woman’s Day.

It’s a great way to save money on flowers and goes perfectly with the Mexican theme.

The punches of color against the neutral backdrop will make it a whimsical but still elegant engagement party, if that’s what you’re looking for. For an even more formal Mexican feel, consider covering the ceiling with white and pearl balloons. The neutral tones will balance out the bright colors and leave the space still feeling airy.

Mexican fiesta party ideas start with over-the-top decorations. Bring on the bold color!  In this case more is definitely more.

Think theme related paper plates, napkins, red table linens, and colorful margarita glasses. Fiesta table decorations and accessories are key to getting your theme to work and your guests in the party spirit.

The best part about all these Mexican fiesta party ideas is that the decorations are inexpensive because most are made of paper. And if you carry the theme to the menu, the foods are also cheap while still being delicious. Fajitas, taco bars, corn chips, salsas, guacamole. You can even carry it through to your drinks and limit the bar to just margaritas and Mexican beer with a wedge of lime.

It’s the perfect theme for tight budgets. Let the Fiesta begin!
