Fiesta Birthday Decorations and Party Supplies
 The fiesta fun should start at the front door! Start with one of our personalized fiesta birthday banners at the front of the house that features a picture of the guest of honor! Add balloons to each side and you have the perfect decoration to let everyone know where the party is!
 
As the guests walk in to the party room greet them with a life size cutout of the guest of honor. Here are a few great choices:
Add a speech bubble for extra fun! You can have them saying "Olé! You will need a siesta after this fiesta!" or "This is Nacho ordinary birthday party!" You can place a basket of fiesta beads and sombreros near the cutout so that everyone can get dressed in their fiesta best!
 
You want the fiesta to look festive, right? Then decorate the room with bright colors and fantastic fiesta party supplies! Here are a few of our favorites:
 These decorations will bring a southwestern feel to your party space!
 
Fiesta Table Decorations and Menu
Don't forget to decorate your tables too! There are some wonderful decorations available to spice up your buffet, bar and dinner tables. Some of our favorite choices include:
Centerpieces are a great addition to any party. The 3-sided personalized fiesta centerpiece will look fabulous on any table. Place fiesta balloons or flowers in it. 
 
Maybe you want to let loose and shake your maracas? Well now is your chance! (It's your party after all.) Place a few sets of maracas throughout each table (or as a centerpiece). Encourage your guests to shake the maracas every time they hear a birthday wish or birthday song during the evening. This makes for fun entertainment as well as nice decoration which adds up to a muy bien table.
 
Use fiesta paper goods for your food, or if this is a milestone birthday think about using these milestone birthday paper goods.
 
A fiesta birthday party calls for a Mexican buffet so that everyone can sample a little bit of everything. Some foods that you want to be sure to include are chicken fajitas, warm flour tortillas, chili con queso, tortilla soup, Mexican rice, black bean and corn salsa, three-milk cake, flan, and margaritas. Speaking of margaritas don't forget these glow margarita glasses, sure to light up the party! Any way you go these are certainly all great choices. For more help and ideas check out these Mexican Recipes.

But this is a birthday party so pizza, chili, easy to eat appetizers, desserts and birthday cake are all good choices as well – the food at your party can be as simple or elaborate as you want.
