Fun Mexican fiesta party ideas include hanging streamers that are the same colors as the Mexican flag, hanging "papel picado" banners, making Mexican food and playing popular Mexican music, such as mariachi or salsa music. A piñata is a fun party game that also works as a decoration.
The colors of the Mexican flag are white, red and green. Twist streamers of these colors together, and then hang them from the ceiling or walls.
Papel picado, which is popular in Mexico, involves cutting words or images into pieces of paper. Tissue paper or construction paper are both suitable materials. After cutting these, attach strings to hang them.
One simple way to handle the food is setting up a taco bar. Put all the necessary ingredients on a table, allowing each guest to make his own taco. Also include appetizers, such as chips, and bowls of salsa, guacamole and pico de gallo, which guests can add to chips or tacos.
Margaritas are a popular Mexican drink. To make a margarita, mix tequila, lime juice and agave syrup, although a variety of recipes are available. Serve the margarita in a glass with salt and a slice of lime on the rim. Ice is optional.
