At Beistle, we love an excuse to throw a good fiesta. While we are rapidly approaching the month of May, it’s time to start preparing for this year’s Cinco de Mayo party. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to highlight some of our festive Fiesta decorations and give you some inspiration to do some decorating of your own. Don’t forget – these ideas would also work perfectly for any Fiesta themed Birthday Party or other event. Nothing screams party like a bright, bold color palette and this collection is no exception.
¡es hora de fiesta! – It’s time to party!
Every good party should start with an eye-catching backdrop. Whether you use it behind the food table or as the background for a photo station is up to you! Tissue Fans provide a very simple way to create a backdrop that is sure to impress your guests. I chose to use a similar color palette for the fans to what is found in the tableware for an overall cohesive look.
Tip: If you prefer a solid colored backdrop, you could choose to pick only one color of Fan to use. Also, Fans are great because they can be used and then collapsed and stored to use again for another event.
Be sure to check the bottom of the post to see the individual products that were used in my displays and links to where you can find each of them as well as many other Fiesta related decorations.
The Lace Paper Lanterns matched perfectly with my backdrop, so I chose to string them together and hang over the table. The delicate look of these Lanterns provided the perfect accent to the rest of my décor.
Along the sides of the table, I bunched up some of our Drop Fringe Garlands. Although these are meant to be draped horizontally, they create a cool effect when gathered and attached to hang vertically. I attached two of the Tissue flowers to the top of the Garlands and taped some of the Cutouts to them as well.
Don’t forget your Tableware! The serape pattern on the Plates, Napkins and Tablecover is bright and definitely eye-catching.
On the table, I have some of the awesome, Fiesta Wearables displayed. It’s not a fiesta without your Sombrero, so make sure not to forget yours! Guests love having a photo to take home from events. The Hats, Headbands and Maracas would make the perfect props for your photo booth or photo taking station. Additionally, set up the Fiesta Photo Prop for your guests to enjoy. The comical artwork on this Prop is sure to make your guests laugh.
I draped the Fiesta Banner on the front of my display table, but it would also be perfect on a door, over an entrance or on the wall.
How cute is this Piñata cutout? His colors matched perfectly with the rest of the collection!
If your party is geared more towards a Cinco de Mayo celebration, you’ll definitely want the Glittered Cinco De Mayo Streamer. The gold accents on the foil letters provide just enough sparkle and pizzaz to this decoration. It is a great compliment to the rest of the bold décor.
Why do I love the Fiesta items from Beistle?
- The serape pattern and bright color scheme allows each product to fit together as one cohesive theme.
- The products are so versatile in this theme that they would work great within a home, business, display, etc.
- Many products in this theme are not exclusive to “Fiesta,” and could carry over to the Summer season.
- Other products not related to this theme match nicely with the overall look (See below for examples).
- The collection has everything you need for a complete party including Wearables, Hanging Decorations, Centerpieces, Photo Station options and more.
As always, have fun Creating The Party!
