Colorful Cactus Fiesta Theme Party Idea

Written by Stephanie Eckman

Summer is almost here! That means it is time to throw a summertime fiesta. And we have the most adorable cactus fiesta theme party idea to share with you.


This theme was designed around the colorful plastic tablecloth fringe banner made by GlamFete. The balloon garland in various colors and sizes coordinates perfectly with the fringe banner.

The FIESTA word banner, the piñata themed llama banner, and the giant cactus mylar balloon completes this cactus fiesta backdrop.

The cardboard cactus cutouts work great as centerpieces for the cupcake stands and also for the center of the cake. Just add some "desert" sand (crushed graham crackers) around the cupcakes and cake, and you have a festively decorated dessert table for a cactus fiesta theme.

The mini cupcakes from Walmart look so cute dressed up in these baking cups with the colorful geometric pattern.

The mini Papel Picado banner works great around the cake stand to add character and color. Mini maracas and mini piñatas along with bright colored confetti add to the overall look of the table.

You can't have a Mexican-themed party without churros from an authentic Mexican bakery. Yum!

The potted cactus decorated cookies from Merritt's Bakery look so cute when added to the yellow salsa containers filled with crushed graham crackers.

Paper cups can be used for more than just drinks. Fill with your favorite party snacks like trail mix, popcorn, or even fruit. We used our cactus theme cups filled with popcorn to tie to the cactus party theme. And they look cute on the decorated sweets table.

Add some humor to your fiesta with these fun cocktail napkins that read Party Like A Pinata and Get Smashed! Too fun

Baking cups

I ordered a variety of baking cups for my project and some of them were themed. When they arrived, I was really happy to see they were like the picture and they also came really fast. I would highly recommend Party Darling for your next big or small project, and you will not be disappointed..

Fast service!

I literally just ordered these plates yesterday afternoon and they arrived today! Even though I live in the same state from where they were shipped I still didn’t think I would get them so fast. The plates are super cute and exactly what I needed for my son’s first birthday party. Thank you!

Birthday Party Plates & Napkins

The plates and napkins were perfect for our party. Unfortunately, they did not arrive on time but upon contact with Party Darling they made things right and I am impressed with their handling of the situation and the plates/napkins. I would definitely order from them again.
