Here's how you can make a great Mexican themed party without spending a lot.

Planning a get-together or party generally takes a lot of time and can be stressful, even with a lot of careful planning, especially when you’re on a tight budget. But planning a Mexican-themed party while wanting to be accurate, colorful, and fun enough on a tight budget can get overwhelming. It’s no wonder event planning is the 5th most stressful job in the world! If you want to plan a Mexican-themed party but don’t know where to start and what you can afford, this article is here to help you! With these awesome frugal tips, you can have a taste of Mexico right in your home!

Set up your venue with affordable décor pieces

When planning a themed party on a budget, the best venue for your event should be your or a loved one’s home. You must try as much as possible to avoid paying for expensive venue rentals. When you find a venue, whether yours or not, it’s time to search for the perfect colors that best represent your theme. Think bright colors, like reds, yellows, and bright blues.

The best thing about Mexican-themed décor pieces is that you can make most of them yourself, especially if you are good at arts and crafts. Or you can head down to the dollar store for some bright hanging flowers, tissue pom poms, and party sombreros. Paper lanterns and fairy lights are also excellent choices that shouldn’t cost you much. You can even use holiday lights to achieve the look.

Create an affordable Mexican cocktail bar

There’s nothing like a Mexican-themed party without a cocktail bar. But what’s the best way to have cocktails without splurging on expensive drinks and a mixologist? Instead, you can purchase ready-to-drink cocktails that eliminate all those extra costs.

For a true Mexican experience, you must include signature drinks like the Paloma cocktail and the classic margarita. You can also stock your bar with garnish and décor, including lime cuts, straws, umbrellas, and affordable cocktail glasses your guests would love. Tequila and light Mexican beers are also appropriate. Fortunately, there are several affordable options to choose from.

Include fun games & activities

There’s no Mexican-themed party without a wide range of fun games. The best thing about these activities is that people of all ages can play. You can fill a piñata with trinkets and treats and hang them up for blindfolding attempts to hit. You can also play limbo, where your guests would be required to pass underneath a pole that is lowered after each round. It’s a great way to get some fun laughs and energize the party. Most importantly, it wouldn’t cost you much to have it set up. If you want to create some fun memories, you can also include fun props in photos. That way, you will always remember how fun your party was.

It’s not impossible to host an affordable Mexican-themed party. Hopefully, you are now inspired to get on with your planning.
