Whether it's a Cinco de Mayo celebration or a birthday party, a Mexican-themed party is fun for people of all ages and nationalities. Get in the spirit by preparing cultural specialities like tacos and margaritas, and have Mexican music and traditional dances. Before the party begins, however, you need to send an invitation. It is creative and fun to sent invitations that fit with the Mexican party theme. With just a few simple steps, coming up with your own wording for a Mexican fiesta is easy.
- Skill level:
Things you need
Take your pen and paper and write a list of words or phrases that fit in with the Mexican party theme. For example, "Fiesta Time!," "Dance the Cucaracha," or "Viva la Fiesta!" You can use English words, Spanish words, or a combination of both.
Next, make a list of objects or items that come to mind when you think of a Mexican fiesta. For example, you could write, "sombraro," "moracas," "mariachi band," or "piñata."
After you've made both lists, come up with a few slogans that use some of the items and phrases to invite people to a party. You want the invitation to sound both inviting and exciting. For example, you might say, "Grab your maracas and dance the Cucaracha at my fiesta!" or "Come over for some tacos, margaritas, and mariachi. Viva la fiesta!"
Pick your favourite slogan and add in the details about the party. For example, if you say, "Wear your sombraro and be ready to dance to mariachi," you will want to include the specific details about the party. For example, "Wear your sombaro to 123 Main Street on May 5th and be ready to dance to mariachi at 8pm." If you don't want to include the party details within the actual slogan, make sure they appear somewere on the invitation.
Now that you have your Mexican fiesta-themed invitations, you are ready to send them off to be printed or make them yourself.
