Feliz Navidad - Fiesta themed Christmas tree - LAURA'S little PARTY

Feliz Navidad - Fiesta themed Christmas tree

December 09, 2016

I have always been drawn to the rich colors and beautiful hispanic decor of my culture. Be it a fiesta, or delicious cultural foods from my relatives, I am really enjoying getting back in touch with my heritage! Our recent cruise to Ensenada had me purchasing fun items that I ended up using in my Christmas decor this year.

As my two younger boys get older, I'm starting to share more of our culture with them. I can thank Disney's Elena of Avalor for helping with some of that! Earlier this year Elena of Avalor made her royal debut {see our royal party here} and my six year old son has loved her ever since! He was so excited when he saw Elena in the Viva Navidad parade at Disney's California Adventure. He is really looking forward to her special Feliz Navidad: a royal Christmas episode that is airing on the Disney Channel! 

To continue the love of our heritage, and get my children more involved with our cultural traditions, I decorated our main Christmas tree with all sorts of fun hispanic decor! I knew my theme was meant to be this year when I happened upon some festive piñata ornaments, chili peppers, cacti, and brightly colored bulbs at Target - muy perfecto! 

I added felt Papel Picado that I had previously bought from Michael's. It helped bring our tree to life with its bold design and beautiful, bright colors!

I'm a huge fan of repurposing - especially when it comes to my party decor! I love using the same items for different themes. For example, I used these darling piñata cacti in my cocktails and cactus party. They worked out perfectly on my Navidad tree this year!

I couldn't decide on just a few fiesta themed ornaments from Target... I wanted ALL of them! 

I also carried the fiesta decor over to my mantle. I added some green pre-lit garland and added a couple maracas, mini sombreros and a piñata that I got from Shindigz. I also added in a few toy guitars. I set out a serape, and added in some faux roses. 

 I can't wait to sit down with mi familia tonight to watch Elena of Avalor's 'Navidad' episode! It's little moments like these that help bring fun memories during the holidays.

Feliz Navidad!
