Mexican Themed Party Tables
As you all know, the tablescape is my favorite part of ever party! A Mexican fiesta definitely deserves a bright and cheerful party table.
Above, we took a large sombrero to create a simple centerpiece and filled large glass-style vases with mini peppers.
Here are a few more themed party tablescapes that are perfect inspiration for your fiesta…
This gorgeous themed party is Mexican perfection from BLovely Events. I love the rich purples and vibrant pinks. The cactus centerpieces are gorgeous, and easy to recreate!
Head to the market and grab lots of brightly colored flowers! Add in a Mexican table runner and some lanterns for the perfect fiesta-worthy tablescape like this one (above) from Bespoke Bride!
Use Mexican food cans (like El Pato cans) and fill with baby’s breath or other flowers! The vibrant colors blend beautifully and give off the perfect fiesta vibe.
I adore this tablescape from Toot Sweet 4 Two. It really shows off how to use vibrant colors in various shades to pull together a gorgeous Mexican themed party tablescape!
My friend Kelley Nan styles the most gorgeous tablescapes, including her Cinco de Mayo party. It’s full of inspiration and not one to miss! I love the simple white plates with the brightly colored napkins. Plus, the mini cacti are perfect. See more of this one here!
