Birthday Party Express: For those serving up drinks, we love their plastic margarita glasses that you can rim with sugar and add lime slices to complete the look. To add some more fiesta flair to your refreshments table, dress up your drinks with our fiesta serape drink cozies! One size fits most bottles – just slip on and sip! 

Adding some fun fake moustaches adds to the humor, and your guests will definitely get a kick out of them. To brighten up your party scene, we also love their festive paper fan decorations and the giant fiesta decorating kit. With three 24-foot banners, you’ll have enough party to go around for sure! You can even enhance the look further with handmade paper decorations of your own – this can make a great party activity for kids, too!
