My good friend’s (and co-worker) in-laws host a Mexican Independence Day party every year, and every year it gets more and more elaborate. That doesn’t have to be a negative thing. Some people are just natural hosts and power to them. This holiday is celebrated on September 15, not to be confused with Cinco de Mayo. Claudia was kind of enough to snap a few pictures for us to share with you. I think they provide a pretty great outline of amazing way to decorate for a Mexican Independence Day Fiesta! Viva Mexico!:
Our Fiesta Party Supplies are packaged in bulk, like everything else on our site, so they’re perfect for your large gathering. Use a serape blanket as a table cover and arrange your tableware supplies artfully for your guests. If you’re celebrating your heritage, chances are someone in your family owns this print on a blanket.
Sombreros are large enough to use as centerpieces, not surprisingly. Ask friends and family to bring their extra sombreros and arrange candy or authentic treats on top. You don’t have to spend much other than on the treats!
Connect or mix & match tissue garlands and lace plastic flags to decorate your ceilings, tables and bar area. You don’t need too much of this decor to set the mood either!
Plastic or Paper Table Covers will work well for this type of semi-casual event. It really does depend on the overall decor look that you’re going for.
