Disney’s Encanto was an animated showstopper filled with great music and vibrant colors. For a Mexican inspired, Disney-influenced, personal Encanto of your own, check out our step-by-step guide on How To Throw An Encanto Themed Party. From finding the perfect venue, to have the right color palette, we’ve got you covered.
1) Encanto Themed Party Venues
Finding the ideal venue is key to creating the correct atmosphere for your Mexican-love Encanto themed birthday party. It’s such a subtle thing that you can do whatever you wish with it – as long as you can feel the magic in the air. A Spanish themed event space can make any indoor or outdoor Encanto party a dream. Our top 4 favorites include:
Beautiful, right? Even if you don’t live in one of the locations featured above you can use them as inspiration to find something similar near you.
2) Magical Entertainment
Encanto was filled with magic, so why not invite some real magic into the party with a professional magician? A great pairing with this would be to invite your favorite Encanto character to party with guests, or a face-painter to paint Mexican themed art on little cheeks. The best part is that you can find both of these services on the Yombu marketplace, a spot where industry pros meet and chat with you in real time and you can book online in minutes. Let them help with digital invitations too!
3) Encanto Color Palette
Whether it’s beautiful pastel balloons or fresh florals, you can go to town with an Encanto themed party. Gaby’s Balloons will create amazing garlands to match paper cut-outs and flowers from Daisy Kart Florist or La Petite Fleur. The Encanto color palette includes the following:
- Yellow – the color of happiness and optimism
- Blue – serene and calming (for when you’re stressed!)
- Green – Bruno’s color. It represents vision and truth and it shows up in Bruno’s visions and is the color of Mirabel’s glasses.
- Pink – All those flowers!
- Orange – the color of magic.
4) Mexican Themed Games
Some awesome Mexican-themed games include a peso toss, pin the tail on the burro (donkey), Mexican kickball and the favorite – piñata! A Cinco de Mayo scavenger hunt is a great idea – hide items such as mini sombreros, small bottles of hot sauce, fiesta maracas and marbles, which is actually quite popular in Mexico.
5) Encanto Party Food
Food, glorious food! Mexican food is great but might not be everyone’s cup of tea. However, you can provide some of what most folk enjoy of the Mexican culture, minus the spice, like burritos or nachos. Woodfired pizza is also delicious – hire a pizza oven from Wild Wood Ovens. Churros for dessert is a must – we love JJ Snack Food Service. And a beautiful Encanto themed cake from Sweet E’s.
6) Encanto Party Favors
Photo booth for the win! Let the guests take memento snapshots to take home, with Mexican candy and a Mexican mesh market bag. Etsy sells them in packs of 10.
Bright colors, loads of energy, great food. You can’t go wrong with this cool Disney theme. Now that you know How To Throw An Encanto Themed Party, check out our other How-To inspo for more party ideas for upcoming events.
Cinco de Mayo, which literally means ‘The Fifth of May’ is the yearly anniversary of the Mexican triumph over France at the Battle of Puebla during the French-Mexican war in 1862. The official colors are red, white and green (like the flag) and there is a lot of music, feasting and battle reenactments to celebrate.
