Cinco de Mayo Party Decorating Ideas

Cinco de Mayo Party Roundup

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner and today I wanted to share a roundup of amazing tablescapes & party decorating ideas perfect for the holiday.

First, a quick reminder that all my shops are CLOSING for a week for a brief vacation to get all my new spring and summer party decor ready to add to the shops!  So, if you are planning a party coming up in the near future. . . hurry by to browse as I’m only taking ready to ship orders until the end of this week and all custom orders are scheduled out three to four weeks.

These bright designs I’m featuring today are also perfect for a fiesta party, a cumpleaños or a quinceañera too. 

Fiesta

I love the stripes of colorful ribbon laid over this table. So easy to make this table design by just laying a solid color tablecloth down and cutting stripes of wide colorful ribbon and laying over the tablecloth.   And don’t forget the PAPEL PICADO BANNER, seen in this photo above, which is a lacey cut banner often found exclusive to Mexican parties and fiestas. The designs often feature intricate cut flowers, cactus, suns, or starburst and medallion motifs.

Sombrero

 This is a simple table design so easy to create with a single sombrero and a few RAINBOW colors of crepe paper.

This is a super easy table backdrop as well.  Use either oversized flowers in bright colors or tissue pom poms attached to your wall or flat surface behind your table.  I love the floral tablecloth too as a nice diversion from the usual rainbow or solid bright colors at most fiesta parties.

Paper pinwheels

Add some PINWHEELS in any size for a pop of color and whimsy too!  Create some height by adding them to the back of your table or put them all in one vase for a table centerpiece display.

camplenos

Add some inexpensive live cactus to the table too!  Such an easy way to add height and a traditional plant.  If you can find some flowering, even better!  This is an easy way to display and wrap up your plastic utensils too.  Use inexpensive different mixed colors of napkins and add some bright fancy paper STRAWS!

hanging fans

Of course you can never go wrong with bright and colorful live flowers.  Pair them with a background of colorful FANS and bright lanterns for a layered effect.

This is actually a birdbath, but if the top small dish is left off, it would be perfect for displaying a tiered cake at a Cinco de Mayo party.  Or fill up the top saucer with candy or place your punch bowl on top.  So many ideas and easy to make this pedestal too.

If you are buying now to receive by May 5th- be sure to select PRIORITY from my shops shipping options to receive in time!

Pink & Gold Party Decorations

PINK & GOLD PARTY DECORATIONS

Today I am sharing a roundup of stunning and shimmering gold and pink parties.  Gold in metallic foil and glitter is still very ‘IN’ and looks perfect when paired with all shades of pink. These painted wood letters for a first birthday are a perfect example of a unique centerpiece for the birthday table.  Yet the O-N-E does not detract from the main focus, the princess birthday cake.

This unicorn party is fun, whimsical, yet sophisticated with the flowers and pearl filler in the glass globe vases. That cake looks too beautiful to eat!

Next up is a birthday party for a two year old featuring a gold glitter cut number cake topper and heart cake toppers. Simple yet classic.

Giant paper flowers as a party table background speaks volumes at this party.  Paired with small flowers on the gold painted and glitter coated wood letters – makes for a perfect table centerpiece.  These flowers are a super easy diy project too!

This party features a stunning hanging sign behind the party table with the birthday girl’s name.   The name banner across the front of the table ties it all together.  I love tables that are flanked by balloons too.  This is the easiest way to build height and create a visual statement when decorating your party table.

Rather than a single central main centerpiece- this party table has doubled each serving plate, cake and cupcake stands.  This is another great decorating visual trick – creating a mirror effect across a long table with the placement of two identical serving trays and duplicating each food set up.

I hope you are inspired by these stunning pink and gold parties today!

Feel free to visit all my shops for all your party decorating needs!
