For those having a Fiesta theme party include Fiesta theme music (duh!). Celebrating a special event with outstanding performances that include singing, dancing and acting is a great way to keep the guests involved in the celebration. These fun activities are perfect for guests of all ages and will add a great deal to the celebration. More often than not, these performances will be the perfect addition to a fun filled and exciting event. Fiesta music should get people up and dancing all Fiesta party long. The Fiesta party budget will play a role in whether CDs or live music will be played at the Fiesta party. For those who do not want a live band, the next best thing is diverse playlist of songs to play all throughout the party’s durations. Include various albums and artists such as:

Fiesta Party Music by The Fiesta Kings
Fiesta Latina
MEXICAN PARTY MUSIC - The Hit Crew
Ultimate Mariachi - Mariachi
Mariachi From Mexico - Mexican Mariachi Band
Cinco De Mayo Party Music

Music for a Fiesta party music include Hot Hot Hot, Tequila, La Bamba, Mexican Hat Dance, Black Magic Woman, Margaritaville, Bamboleo, and Un Dos Tres Maria. Include children’s Fiesta songs such as All Around Puebla (to the tune of Pop Goes the Weasel), Today is a Day to Celebrate (to the tune of London Bridge), Cinco de Mayo (to the tune of Are You Sleeping?) Fiesta party supplies such as balloons, streamers, banners, Mexican hats, ponchos, chili pepper cut outs, piñatas, scene setters, and tableware items will make the Fiesta party the best ever. Creative tip: Make sure to put a stamp on all invitations that are to be mailed in a timely fashion. Sending out save-the-date cards is extremely important as the holidays approach and guests have a number of social engagements to attend. Plan ahead by including at start time for the day and if needed include a reasonable end time as well.

Making handmade party supplies and party goods for a Fiesta party is not as difficult as it appears. Homemade party supplies such as Fiesta party piñatas, tambourines, noise makers, candles and Fiesta banners will make your party really special and will create a lot of amusement for your guests. Homemade fiesta party supplies such as piñatas, colorful banners and confetti will add excitement to the occasions. Many of these homemade items for your Fiesta party can become keepsakes for years to come.

Homemade party supplies such as Fiesta piñatas can be handmade and festively decorated for this Fiesta party. Most people find that making a homemade piñata is much easier than it sounds and most often Fiesta piñatas receive great reviews. The piñatas will need to be prepared a few days prior to the Fiesta party in order to give the piñatas time to dry and be painted. A homemade piñata is made by using a large balloon and then adding strips of paper mache by using a flour glue mix of water and flour. Once these pieces have been added, let it hardened. At this point, the piñata can be decorated and then a pin stuck in the side to burst the balloon. After this has been done the piñata can be filled with various goods and it is ready for the party.


Fiesta parties are a great time for celebrating and having a Sombrero cake with your family and friends. This exciting and fun event is the ideal time for a variety of creative desserts and other tasty treats designed especially for this celebration. These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often the addition of enjoyable fares that are designed especially for this gathering will make everyone feel very special. This fiesta party cake can be made one of two ways and either way will be a welcomed addition to a Fiesta party. First of all, a chocolate, white or marble cake can be baked and after it has cooled it is placed in a sombrero which is lined with wax paper. After the cake has been placed in the sombrero it can then be decorated and adorned with an outline of a guitar or a man wearing a sombrero. The other way of making this cake is to bake a cake and then decorate the cake as a sombrero using additional icing to make the brim.

Regardless of which type of Sombrero Hat cake is chosen, decorating it with the Fiesta party theme will only add to the festivities. No matter why you are having a fiesta party, an assortment of Fiesta party supplies and a Sombrero cake will only add to the party. Many people find a Fiesta party with party supplies and cake to be a lot of fun.

A fiesta party complete with a Sombrero cake and other party supplies can be a festive occasion. In addition to the Sombrero cake, party supplies and Mexican music, a piñata is made and used for games and activities. Furthermore, as with any cake the Sombrero cake can be adapted and used a variety of ways.

Many of us associate Fiesta parties with the celebration of Cinco de Mayo-- Mexico's Independence Day. This is not the only time when the lively rhythms of mariachi bands and the colorful paper decorations of fiesta are welcome. A fiesta can brighten anyone's mood on a cloudy day or reflect the wonderful weather on a sunny summer evening. These fun items along with cute supplies are always a great addition to a celebration and fun posters that include designs and greetings that are perfect for the celebration will liven up the event and make everyone feel very special. More often than not, these signs and posters will add a lot of fun to the celebrated get together.

One of the best uses of fiesta paper party goods might be to decorate any sort of dinner party during the coldest and most dismal winter weather. Have lots of salsa in a variety of hot, medium and mild recipes to serve with bowls of tortilla chips. Serve piping hot casserole dishes of enchiladas or taco bakes. Frijoles and Spanish rice are natural and expected side dishes for fiesta parties Make a burrito bar with all possible favorite ingredients and fill large condiment bowls with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, onion, sour cream and cheddar cheese for toppings. If that is not enough food then try finding a recipe for soppipias or fried ice cream for dessert.

It might be best for a more formal fiesta dinner party to pull out all the stops and consult with a Mexican cook book for less Americanized recipes. Use good colorful dinnerware for the main meal and use the fiesta themed paper party goods to serve dessert with coffee or hot chocolate. Paper goods will also do nicely for leftovers after the dinner has adjourned to a game or television room.

Fiestas for warm weather gathering can take advantage of gardening features like ponds to float candles or grape arbors for paper streamers and flowers. When children are present a carefully supervised piñata game can add just the right festive element. Anytime at all, birthdays, engagements or promotions can all be celebrated with the fiesta party.
