Pixar's COCO is a huge favorite in our house! We loved celebrating our latest birthday with a bright and bold COCO themed party! We captured the look of Miguel's town of Santa Cecilia, with an old brick wall backdrop and cobblestone ground. Will you be throwing a COCO themed party this year? See how easy it is to recreate with my ideas and inspiration!
For those of you who have seen the movie, or read the stories, you know how much Miguel loves to play the guitar! The movie is filled with beautiful music, catchy songs and bold colors that capture your heart. Use musical note mylar balloons, and a cardboard guitar to bring your COCO themed party to life! Get creative with musical note silhouettes and COCO spiral danglers to create a party banner for the front of your table.
No COCO themed birthday party is complete without COCO plates, COCO napkins, COCO favor cups and a table centerpiece!
Pretend guitars are the perfect party favor for your COCO party! The guests will have a blast strumming a few chords and pretending to play and sing like Miguel. Set out gable favor boxes filled with toys and candies and add a fun musical note necklace to each party box!
Make a store-bought cake extra sweet by adding all sorts of tasty pastries, churros, cookies and a special COCO birthday candle for the guest of honor!
I hope you get the chance to see COCO in theaters and have someone who would love to have a COCO themed birthday party!
