tips on hosting a fiesta

Grab your pencils ‘cuz it’s…

Today’s colorful theme…FIESTA!…was inspired by this delish recipe linked up by Donna of The Epicurean Crafter.

Baja Fish Tacos

Spicy foods were not a part of my childhood. Ketchup, Thousand Island and a pinch of chili powder were as spicy as we got! While I still can’t handle very spicy foods, I do love a great taco and these sound wonderful! Click here to grab Donna’s recipe.

A Taco Bar is a great way to serve a large crowd at a party and also makes a fun middle of the week dinner! One of my all-time favorite taco bars was by Brittany of GreyGrey Designs. 

Brittany created this taco bar for her son’s birthday party. The brilliant part is that she served the shells on a taco shell garland!

I also adore the pinata-inspired backdrop. Click here for all of the amazing details.

During a recent visit from my family, we had fun creating this Nachos Bar for dinner one night.

Everyone chose their own favorite toppings then popped them under the broiler for a few minutes. It was the easiest meal we made during their visit! For dessert, I whipped up my Faux Churros.

For a true Fiesta feel, decorating with bright colors is a must in my book! We make it easy for you by offering our Fiesta Collection in The Market.

Brittany of GreyGrey Designs added lots of color to her dessert buffet with a pinata, basket, jelly beans, maracas and bright fabric.

She also decorated her white cupcake stand with sombreros and added a Mexican blanket to her taco bar. The cupcake stand…genius! Pure genius!

For our Fiesta, we added ruffled streamer remnants from other parties to $1 paper lanterns and tied on ribbon scraps. We then hung them over the Nachos Bar and dining table to create a festive atmosphere!

Don’t forget to add pops of color to your dining table. Use blankets, placemats, napkins, plates and more to create a playful and fun placesetting!

I hope you’re inspired to make your next taco night a lil’ extra special!

  1. Mom says, “We had cinnamon and nutmeg, too!” OOOOOOH, so spicy! I’ve decided that they just didn’t have spices in the U.P. of Michigan!
