With the Holidays just over most of us aren’t thinking of celebrating and entertaining, we just want to ease into the New Year. But when a good friend is turning 50 you rally to help make it a memorable occasion. I suggested a Fiesta theme because the family had recently returned from a dreamy vacation in Tulum. I thought a Fiesta would bring back to the vacation vibes and put everyone in a good mood. Margaritas don’t hurt either. Here are some ideas I pulled together for a fun, festive and modern Mexican Fiesta, but the ideas could just as easily be applied to a Cinqo de Mayo celebration, or a Dia de los Muertes party.
The colors are so vibrant that you can’t help but be happy. The key to the decor is the papel picado decorations, which fortunately, are readily available from many sources. If you follow me on instagram you may have noticed a bright DIY project underway. No surprises there, it’s for this Fiesta. Now, it’s time to start putting all the pieces together.
