Mexican Fiesta - Cinco de Mayo Theme Party Decorating Ideas

Mexican Fiesta - Cinco de Mayo Theme Party Decorating Ideas #1: Name your location. Invite your guests to Mexico City, The Red Sombrero Cantina, Tijuana, Acapulco, etc. By naming it and referring to that name throughout the party, you’ll create a definite place and time for your guests. It’s amazing the credibility that is given when it’s given a name.

Mexican Fiesta - Cinco de Mayo Theme Party Decorating Ideas #2: For VERY inexpensive clay/brick walls, use brown postal wrapping paper and a new rectangle sponge. With any water based paint (try not to dilute it too much) use the sponge as a stamp to imprint bricks onto the paper. Although not very realistic, it ‘works’ for areas that are not meant for high profile places. A great way to blanket an area

Mexican Fiesta - Cinco de Mayo Theme Party Decorating Ideas #3: Hang fabric for simple decoration. Near larger metropolitan areas one can always find some type of ‘garment district’ or wholesaler shops for fabric. These are great for finding a high variety of prints for prices that are a steal – otherwise try the clearance tables at your local Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby or Joann’s Fabrics. Have fun searching for appropriate prints to hang like pinched tapestries on the walls. This simple trick does wonders for decoration (especially when the decoration supply is pretty thin.)

Mexican Fiesta - Cinco de Mayo Theme Party Decorating Ideas #4: For fun great looking table centerpieces, visit your local library and check out some Mexican cuisine cookbooks, Mexican Muralism or books about Mexico’s history (including the Aztecs) and arrange them with the books standing up, half open so that their pages can be quasi-seen.

Mexican Fiesta - Cinco de Mayo Theme Party Decorating Ideas #5: Create a paper chain with the colors of the Mexican flag (green, red and white.) This is done one link at a time, alternating the colors with strips of colored construction paper. Consider including a few loops of a single color before changing colors (i.e. you can loop with a red, green, white, red, green, white pattern….or red, red, red, white, white, white, green, green, green, red, red, red… pattern.)

Mexican Fiesta - Cinco de Mayo Theme Party Decorating Ideas #6: Zorro movie posters can be purchased from any number of online websites. Check out their clearance section for the best deals. These also make great prizes for games (allowing the winners to choose which poster they want to leave with!)

Mexican Fiesta - Cinco de Mayo Theme Party Decorating Ideas #7: Make your own map of Mexico and hang it on the wall. You can create it yourself with posterboard and markers OR…You can also BLOW UP an image of a map (found online) at your local copier store (Kinkos, etc.) It will only cost a few bucks and you’ll have a decoration that can cover a very large blank space.

Mexican Fiesta - Cinco de Mayo Theme Party Decorating Ideas #8: Decorate with white Christmas lights. These look great for outdoor, evening settings. Although colored lights would also work, white ones seem to be ideal for a more ‘desert’ look. They should be either draped like streamers or outline doorways (hold back from putting in plants or trees or else you might give off a Christmas feel…)
