How to Throw a Fiesta-Themed Party

Make your own papel picado (festive banners of intricately-cut paper) with construction or tissue paper, string, scissors, and tape.
DIY themed vases: Pick up Mexican or Spanish canned goods at the grocery store. Use the ingredients in your party platter and repurpose the cans as vases.
A special margarita-making blender will make sure the party never stops.
Lanterns and candles will provide light and magical ambiance throughout the party.
Display easy-to-make beverages, like horchata, agua fresca, sangria, and iced tea, in labeled beverage dispensers.

Whether you're prepping for Cinco de Mayo or you
want to add a little south of the border flavor to any party, we've got ideas that will make your guests shout, "Fiesta!" A get-together like this calls for bright colors, Mexican food, some clever DIY, and of course margaritas.

Table linens and glasses in a variety of bold, festive hues will help set the scene. Stock up on tortilla chips, salsa, and guacamole for appetizers. For the main dish, try a taco bar or make-your-own quesadilla spread with a quesadilla maker right on the buffet table.
