Kids Parties with a Fiesta Touch-Featuring “Kara’s Party Ideas”

When it comes to deciding themes for Birthday parties the choices are vast! Little kids love everything to do with any popular cartoon these days or their favorite things, which we know can be just as interesting and unique! #KidsSayTheDarnestThings

 

Amols’ is full of party supplies and decorations that can suit any theme you’re little ones want this year! From table ware to hanging decorations and of course the beloved fiesta party supplies we carry; we can be your one stop shop when it comes to decorating for your kid’s party.

Out of California, Niki Stoller was requested to make a Two-Year old birthday party one of a kind and Mexican Themed with a large dose of Peppa Pig. Niki did an astounding job as she designed this little girl’s Peppa Pig Party with our party supplies to make this special occasion spectacular! We are thrilled to share this beautiful kid’s party idea and hope that it can inspire you to do something similar.

 

Kara’s Party Idea’s featured this fiesta of a time in her blog about Peppa Pig themed parties.

“This is what Niki shared about the party- “When Ryane, Jordan’s momma came to me and asked me to help her design her daughter’s 2nd birthday that she already themed Taco Twosday, I jumped at the opportunity.
This Southern California toddler has been raised on a steady diet of Mexican inspired food and loves Peppa the Pig. We merged the two ideas together and started to DIY all of the details from the cardboard cactus plants, to the custom made piñata stick, the peppa the pig tic tac toe and temporary tattoo parlor this party was a hit with the kids.
I would love to provide all of the DIY instructions for this party for your followers”.”

Here are a few items that Niki used to decorate the Peppa Pig Fiesta Themed party!!

Terecitas Terecitas!!!

Our Terecitas Flowers have long been our best-selling paper flowers. These vibrant, handmade flowers, sold in large bunches and easily separated, are perfect for centerpieces, Fiesta Wreaths, flower crowns, crafting, and much more. We love these versatile flowers so much that we had to tell you about some new styles!

Our  Jumbo Terecitas are a fun twist on these classic flowers. These terecitas are just as vibrant and festive, but larger than ever. Each bunch still makes a beautiful and simple centerpiece, but the jumbo individual flowers can be used in a whole variety of new ways. We especially love using these to make pins or hair accessories. We’d love to see how you get creative with these Jumbo Terecitas!

And while our traditional Terecitas are a fun burst of different colors, we know some options couldn’t hurt. Our solid color Terecitas are perfect for a wedding, birthday, or other celebration with a color scheme. Decorate in your own style with these stylish flowers. Check them out in hot pink, purple, red, yellow, blue, green, orange and yellow. Hey, we meant it when we said we were giving you options!

Do you love the Terecitas family as much as we do? Stock up on your favorites, and get ready for Fiesta — it’s fast approaching!

Papel Picado Invitations

We had so much fun making Valentines out of papel picado, that we wanted to try making invitations! This is another easy and fun craft that will lend a little extra festivity to your next Fiesta-themed celebration!

All you’ll need for this project is 1) some of our new “Viva Fiesta” flags2) colorful paper, 3) scissors, and 4) glue. While you can definitely do this with any of our smaller papel picado banner, we found that these flags were the perfect shape and size, and we loved having the fun saying on the front of the invitations. Here are the super simple steps for making your own invitations:

1. Coordinate your flags with your colored paper. We did a fun mix of different complimentary colors, but you can stick with one color scheme for both the flags and the background paper.

2. Carefully cut the flags off the sticks. You’ll have just enough room on the side to easily cut away from the wooden stick.

3. Glue your flags onto the paper. You can get two flags on each piece of 8.5″ x 11″ paper, if you want to glue on two flags at once.

4. Cut! We like keeping a slight scalloped edge on the paper, but if you’re in a bit of a rush, you can just cut along the shape.

5. Fill out the back with your party details. We went with a handwritten format, but if you want something a little more streamlined? Download our free printable! Just print these on your colored paper at the beginning, and glue your flags onto the other side.

Whether you’re hosting an engagement party, baby shower, or birthday, we strongly believe you can’t go wrong with a Fiesta theme. Now, you’ve got an extra festive touch that will get everyone into the spirit from the very beginning!

Day of the Dead Alters

During the annual Día de los Muertos festivities, people create elaborate altars to honor their loved ones who have passed. These unique altars are an iconic part of Day of the Dead. Take a look at a few of our favorite ways to put together an authentic altar on your own.

Marigolds are ubiquitous during Día de los Muertos, and are usually found on the altars. These flowers are the symbol of death, but they’re not as depressing as they sound. Rather, their scent is meant to draw the deceased back to their homes. As such, some people even leave a trail of marigolds from their houses to the graves of their loved ones. For your altar, purchase some real marigolds from your florist, or decorate with classic Mexican paper flowers.

Of course, you don’t need us to tell you that sugar skulls are a must-have for an authentic altar. We have tons of great skull decorations, but we’d definitely recommend our Tea Light Holders. Candles are an important part of Dia de los Muertos, and we love placing them in these decorated sugar skulls. They create a wonderfully festive look when you light the candles.

To complete the look, include photos of the deceased who you’re honoring — obviously an important part of the altar.

Whether you’re teaching a class about this tradition, or celebrating it yourself for the first time, you’ll be able to put together a wonderful altar with these tips. ¡Feliz Día de los Muertos!

Make it a Safe Halloween

We have tons of tips on how to make Halloween more fun than ever, but it’s also important to remember to stay safe during the festivities. With trick-or-treating and parties galore, we always recommend passing out light up party favors and accessories, so kids and parents can stay safe in the dark. Check out a few of our favorites for Halloween.

Our Flashing Fangs are an absolute must-have for any celebration. They make a terrific costume accessory, and once they’re switched on, produce a flashing, multicolor light show. Batteries are included, so you can go ahead and pass them out to each of your guests for an easy and totally festive party favor.

We’re also loving our new Glow Lights! Kids will love taking these festive accessories as they go trick-or-treating. No matter the costume, this is the perfect accessory for Halloween.

Be sure to check out the rest of our glow sticks, bracelets, necklaces and more. Not only are these all an easy way to keep an eye on everyone once the sun goes down, but they also make fantastic party favors. Make this Halloween a stylish and safe one!

Breast Cancer Awareness

Whenever we reminisce about the month of October, the first things that come to mind are spooks, scares, and sweets. However, more and more people around the country are discovering that October has more to offer than pumpkin spice lattes. Breast Cancer Awareness Month has become a national spectacle that lasts throughout the month of October, encouraging awareness of the disease to provide the funds and education for women and men alike in hopes of reducing their risk of cancer. We at Amols’ understand the importance of this cause, and we’ve got great new products for you and your devotees to help show your support.

Whether you’re hosting a fundraiser or marathon, we’ve got you covered. Create a wonderful and ultra-pink booth with our collection of Pink Ribbon decorations. We definitely recommend that our Pink Ribbon Banner be a part of your booth. Perfect for both indoor and outdoor use, you can drape this cute banner across your booth for a festive and easy look. Go that extra mile for fabulous by including these always stylish Pink Ribbon Tissue Fan Bursts, and don’t forget to stock up on Pink Ribbon Pins! With the way you’ll be decorating your space, you’ll need plenty to satisfy a crowd.

We think one of the best ways to show your pride for something this important is by dressing for success. So now that your event space is sporting that famous pink, it’s your turn! We offer fantastic accessories like Breast Cancer Awareness Buttons and Pink Ribbon Lanyards perfect for displaying your support. At the end of the day, thank those who donated and other fellow supporters by handing out fun Breast Cancer Awareness favors. Our favorites include Breast Cancer Rubber Bracelets and kid-friendly Pink Ribbon Jewel Tattoos. Wrap in pink tissue paper or tie with pink curling ribbon for the final touch.

With October already upon us, we hope these decorating tips will help you put together the perfect pink ribbon inspired event for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Share the love – tag us in your event photos on Instagram with @amolsfiesta!

Papel Picados for the Holidays

If you haven’t noticed by now, we’re obsessed with papel picado. These hand-cut Mexican banners are wonderful for Fiesta celebrations, but we love them so much we make sure to incorporate them into every holiday. We have each design custom made in Mexico, so we’re always dreaming up new ideas for different occasions. And if we may say so ourselves, the Christmas picado banners are pretty spectacular.

The metallic versions of our papel picado are all fantastic, but we think this finish is especially perfect for Christmas. It’s a great way to add a little extra shimmer and cheer to your festivities. We love hanging these banners up for a great party decoration, or just stringing them up to decorate your house during the holidays. Your guests and neighbors will love this unexpected touch.

If you want to go even more unique, you can’t go wrong with our Feliz Navidad picado. After all, papel picado is a classic Mexican tradition, so it makes sense to wish everyone a merry Christmas in Spanish. Especially here in south Texas, we love adding these banners to our more traditional Christmas decorations.

No matter what you’re decorating for the holiday season, our seasonal papel picado is a must-have. Switch up your decor a bit this Christmas!
