My birthday is this Friday, so I’m officially declaring it Birthday Week here at Hello Little Home! On Monday, I shared a recipe for my Black Bean and Cream Cheese Enchiladas, which are perfect for parties (or any night, really), and on Tuesday, I shared my birthday wish list.
Today, I have a special treat for you! As I mentioned on Monday, I love Mexican food, and I’ll never refuse a margarita! I thought it would be fun to continue with that theme, so I’m sharing my DIY Fiesta Birthday Party with free printables!
These fiesta-themed party printables are perfect for your next celebration! My inspiration came from papel picado, those colorful Mexican cutout paper banners,
I just love the vibrant colors and intricate designs found in these banners, so it was super fun to create five of my own designs. Once I created the images, I used them to make everything you need to throw this DIY Fiesta Birthday Party (printable PDFs are at the end of the post):
- Bunting/Banner – The bunting comes in small and large sizes. The small is perfect for topping a cake or cupcakes, and the large works well for a wall or a colorful backdrop.
- Straw Flags – Why use plain straws when you can decorate them with colorful flags?
- Bottle Wraps – The custom wraps will dress up sodas (Jarritos would be perfect), water, or other drinks.
- Feliz Cumpleaños and Happy Birthday Signs – The signs are designed to fit an 8 x 10-inch frame, but you can resize the PDF before printing to fit other dimensions, as well.
Everything is easy to put together. All you need is card stock for printing, a pair of scissors, and some tape.
I encourage you to get creative with the printables, too! The small bunting pieces could be printed on sticker paper and used as seals for treat bags. Cut out the circles on the bottle wraps and use for cupcake toppers or trim them to use for mini-tents (for place settings or food labeling). Or use the printables for any Mexican-themed bash, such as Cinco de Mayo!
How to assemble the small bunting:
Print the bunting on card stock and then cut out the individual bunting pieces, leaving the 2 pairs attached.
Fold the bunting pieces in half. The printed part should be on the outside (see below).
Place a strip of double sided tape on the inside each bunting piece.
Cut a piece of string (I used baker’s twine) about twice as long as you want your bunting to be, and then, starting in the middle of your string, fold the bunting pieces around the string.
Press and seal the two sides together. Repeat with remaining pieces.
One side at a time, tie the bunting to the end of a skewer and then double-knot the string and trim the ends. Stick the skewers into your cake or cupcakes.
How to assemble the large bunting:
I don’t have a picture of the large bunting, but there are two ways to assemble it. Cut out the pieces, and then either tape the string to the back of the bunting pieces, or punch holes in the corners and then work the string through the holes (similar to how I strung my Conversation Heart Banner).
How to assemble the paper flags:
Print the flags on card stock and then cut them out.
Attach a piece of double sided tape to the flag; it should be just about the length of the flag. You may need to trim the tape a bit, depending on how wide it is.
Attach the flag to the middle of a paper straw, leaving a little room at the top (enough room to use the straw).
Wrap the flag around the straw and match the two ends together. Working back toward the straw, press the two sides of the flag together.
How to assemble the bottle wraps:
Print the wraps on card stock and cut out the individual pieces.
Add text with a pen or marker (I used a gold Sharpie), then use double sided tape to attach one end of the wrap directly to the bottle. Wrap the piece tightly around the bottle and attach the other end with tape, as well.
