          Definitely get a pinata! Maybe some maracas, sombreros, maybe mariachi music. If you have a national wholesale liquidators near you, go check them out...they usually have a ton of decorations to choose from! Best of luck planning.

            Check out any wedding decoration store, there you can find something inspiring for your theme or some cool item for your wedding decorations.

              We had a Mexican fiesta themed Welcome Dinner in Mexico. Our table decor included a string of fake red and green jalapeno peppers and we actually used some real stuff too -- bellpeppers, onions, avocado -- to add with it. It gives it a very festive feel and of course is all usable after the fact. But def. add maracas, sombreros, pinata to the mix. Have you decided on food? We had a taco man making fresh tacos, fajitas, quesadillas on a grill, it was fabulous!! And of course don't forget the margaritas

                I LOVE this and didn't get a chance to use it:

                I think you could find the votives cheap around Christmas. The peppers at world market or something. Simple but not cheesy!

                  kate.com - I love the votives and peppers!!!

                  We're doing a Mexican fiesta AHR too... still in the beginning of planning for that, but right now (until I change my mind AGAIN) here's what I'm thinking for tables... while we're in Mexico, we're going to go to a store and buy a bunch of small bottles of hot sauce. For the AHR I'm thinking a small tin pail (like a beer bucket) with a ribbon around the outside in our wedding colors... then I'm going to "stuff" the bucket with sand half way, and then throw in a bottle of hot sauce for them to use on their food, maracas (also planning to buy those in Mexico) and a small bottle of tequila.... we're thinking of doing personalized shot glasses at each seat, and the table can do their own shot of tequila if they want (it's an all adult reception).

                  I may change my mind for the hundreth time... but that's what I'm thinking right now.


                  22 booked... we're ready to go!!!

                    I don't know how festive these are, but Martha Stewart's tissue paper pom-pom balls are really cute (not to mention cheap) and can be done in whatever colours your theme is:
