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

Feliz Navidad - Fiesta themed Christmas tree

December 08, 2017

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! When Elena of Avalor made her royal debut (see our royal party here) both of my boys have loved her ever since! They were so excited when they saw Elena in the Viva Navidad parade at Disney's California Adventure.  

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 and discuss old and new traditions! It's little moments like these that help bring fun memories to life during the holidays.

Feliz Navidad!
