Cinco De Mayo Party by Laura Aguirre

Serapis, bright bold colors, and festive decor are a few things you’ll need to throw a Fiesta Party for Cinco de Mayo. If you’re looking for some colorful party ideas, you’ll want to see what we have in store!

Let’s start with this muy fabuloso Fiesta arch. It works great as a walkway into your party, but I really wanted to use it as part of my Fiesta table decor! I fit a 4′ table inside perfectly. I hung a gold metallic curtain in the background.

You can personalize it with any message – I chose “let’s fiesta”! I added some teal colored lace paper lanterns for an added pop of color. I hung a Del Sol banner, and gold metallic fringe in front of the arch and it all looked so festive!

I also added colorful Fiesta themed paper fans to the front of the arch.

One of the first things I enjoy doing after I pick my party theme is to shop for party decor! When it comes to fiestas, you can’t go wrong with vivid colors, and pinatas!

For a festive table setting, I used a serapi as my table cover. I added some gold chargers, and bold red plates. I took a pair of maracas that I spray painted gold, and set them on each plate.

I used sombreros as part of my Cinco de Mayo decor as well. I attached a hat to the backs of each guest’s chair.

While your party guests are waiting for the main course, satisfy their appetite with tasty treats of pan dulce (Mexican sweet bread), cups of fresh fruit, sweet peppers topped with fresh guacamole, and of course… Margaritas! The gold sequins runner brought a sparkly touch to the food display.

Even drinks look festive when decorated with a fun drink stirrer like this one, from Creativities Galore.

The sweet pepper & lime are a fun touch that your party guests will love.

Shrimp ceviche is one of my favorites! I served the seafood mixture in clear tumblers, over tortilla chips, and topped with lime and avocado slices.

Sweet peppers were sliced lengthwise and filled with guacamole. They were the perfect appetizer for a sweet, crunchy, and bold kick!

Who’s ready to Fiesta?!
