Mexican Independence Celebration/ Celebracion de la Independencia de Mexico

I was born and raise in Mexico and every year in school there was a celebration for the Independence. One thing I remember is how colorful and happy it is. School cover their hallways with colorful paper and decorations resembling the flag.

Naci y me crie en Mexico, cada año habia una celebracion en la escuela por el dia de la independencia. Una de las cosas que mas recuerdo de las fechas es lo colorido que es y feliz. Las escuelas se llenan de coloridas decoraciones que asemejan a la bandera de Mexico.

And in this post I will be sharing a couple of ideas that you can use to celebrate in your home. It doesn't necessarily have to be for that day but you can throw a themed party and use some of the elements I will be showing you right here.

En esta entrada the compartire unas idas que puedes usar para celebrar en casa. No necesariamente tiene que ser ese dia, pero si estas planeando una fiesta Mexicana estas ideas te pueden servir de la misma manera. 

This centerpiece can be a great idea if you are setting up tables for your guests. I used materials I had at home, the base of the centerpiece is a coffee can that I stripped of the tag and covered with glitter.

Find out how to make your here.

Este centro de mesa es una gran idea su vas a colocar mesas para los invitados. Use materiales que tenia en casa, la base del centro de mesa es una lata de cafe nada mas le quite la etiqueta y la cubri con brillantina.

Aqui esta el tutorial de como se hace.

One element I really wanted to add was the loteria place mats, since it is one of the most popular games in Mexico I think it adds a great touch and they are fairly inexpensive (around $3 dollars and comes with 10 cars I think)

Un elemento que quise incorporar fue la loteria como manteles, ya que es uno de los juegos de mesa mas populares en Mexico le da un toque muy especial y no son caros (alrededor de $3 dolares por cada 10 cartoncillos)

Another idea I would like to share with you is this make up that I used last year, I am not a make up pro but it was pretty easy to make and you can show the colors of the flag on your make up. This can be used as well if you are watching or attending a soccer game and it lasted the whole day with minimum touches.

Otra idea que les quiero compartir es este maquillaje que utilice el año pasado, y no soy una experta en maquillaje pero fue muy sencilllo de hacer para mostrar los colores de la bandera en el maquillaje. Tambien se puede utilizar si es que van a ver un partido se futbol o ir a uno en un estadio y dura todo el dia con minimos retoques.


And lets talk about the outfits that the boys and girls wear that day, so adorable because they are tradition Mexican outfits for kids and they all go dressed up like that showing their pride all over.

Y ni hablar de los trajes que usan los pequeños ese dia, son tan lindos por que son trajes tradicionales Mexicanos pero para peques y se van bien vestiditos mostrando el orgullo Mexicano.
