How to host the ultimate Mexican fiesta birthday party for your kid

Colour is critical

  • When creating a Mexican fiesta birthday party, be sure to incorporate lots of bright colours representative of the country.
  • Orange, yellow, red, fuchsia and bright blue make a wonderful colour palette for this themed event.
  • You'll want to incorporate the colours throughout the decorations, tableware and food for a well-coordinated event.

Festive decorations

  • Using your selected colour palette, design your party with elements such as bright paper flowers hung in tree branches and scattered on the serving and dining tables.
  • Beautiful ribbons in your colour scheme can be placed on the tables to mimic the ribbons so popular in Mexican culture.
  • You may also want to think about placing brightly coloured candles on the tables for some extra drama.
  • Setting out pots of flowers in bright colours will also solidify the Mexican theme.
  • Colourful serapes can be used for table covers, and ruffled fabrics make great table skirts for the cake and food tables.

Kid-friendly food

  • What child doesn't enjoy making his or her own taco? Make it easy with a taco bar complete with ground meats, refried beans, shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce and sour cream.
  • And no Mexican fiesta birthday party would be complete without nachos and corn chips. Beverages kids love include pineapple punch, orange smoothies and lemonade.
  • One way to add lots of colour and taste is to create a candy table dotted with glass containers filled with brightly coloured candies.
  • And, of course, no child can resist cookies and a birthday cake designed and frosted in colours to match your party palette.


  • No party would be complete without music so, if your budget allows, hire a strolling mariachi musician, or at least play some mariachi music CDs at the party.
  • And, of course, don't forget about a brightly coloured piñata filled with candy and hung for the children's fun during the event.

You can make additions to these Mexican fiesta birthday party ideas to make your child's next party a fantastic success and one that will be remembered for many years.
