I love any excuse to host a party – and especially one that involves margaritas à la Cinco de Mayo. The Mexican holiday is one that encourages celebrations that are festive with a capital F – think: more color, more layers, more salt on the rim, por favor! The more-is-more approach always makes for the best party decor, and, as always, Etsy is a treasure trove for it.
From Otomi table runners and paper flowers to Mexican ceramics and colorful glassware, Etsy has all of it – and so much more. (Speaking of more, these Mexican wedding cookies are delicious and would make a great party favor.) Whether you’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo or planning an extra festive taco night this summer, shop the list below to add some extra flair to your next fiesta.
Use him as decor and then hang him up and let the adults take a whack. Hot tip: fill him with treats other than candy – think: scratch-off lotto tickets, $5 gift cards, tiny bottles of Tabasco.
Hand-embroidered and colorful as can be, these coasters are festive – and keep the water rings away, too. They also double as cocktail napkins. Take your pick!
Sold in sets of six, these mini piñatas are make for great party decor. I love the idea of filling a large glass bowl with them and then placing that on a coffee table. Tip: the double as Christmas tree ornaments.
I have loads of these Mexican placemats. Made of woven plastic, they’re sturdy (ready: no ironing required with these!) and super easy to clean. They come in a wonderful mix of colors and instantly add punch to a table.
Not only are these personalized fans super festive, they’ll also come in handy if your fiesta is outdoors. Hot tip: if you’re having a seated dinner, use these in lieu of traditional paper place cards.
When it comes to decorating or setting the table, blue and white is always a neutral. It magically goes with every color. These ceramic small plates are handmade and the perfect size for small bites or, in the case of a seated dinner, use them for the salad or dessert course.
I love the look of traditional Mexican clay. I actually love placing these alongside polished silver as it’s unexpected and elevates the whole thing. These oval dishes are perfect for serving everything from guacamole to sides dishes like rice.
I love to keep the theme going even into powder bath. It’s all about the little details.
Serve your margs from this handblown cactus pitcher. It’s a conversation starter that would sit beautifully at a bar – not to mention, it would make a great hostess gift.
