Anyone can throw a party but to throw the ultimate fiesta you need to go the extra mile. Everything from the food to the music needs to be in line with the theme. There are some tips for the ultimate fiesta that can help you keep your head on straight during the planning stage. After all, you want people talking about your fiesta for days to come afterward. Get ready to throw the best fiesta you’ve ever thrown.
Using these tips for the ultimate fiesta will make the guest list the hardest part.
When it comes to any party, the most difficult part is usually the food. There are plenty of Mexican recipes that can have guests asking for more. There are a few fiesta staples that people often expect at a Mexican themed party. Having good guacamole and salsas is important, margaritas, and of course, tacos. A fun way to incorporate food during a fiesta is a build your own station. At this station, you can have the different ingredients ready to go for tacos, burritos or tostadas and let people add what they like. However, if cooking all of the usuals sounds like an exhausting day, you can always call Chelas Mexican Grill to cater your fiesta.
In the days of social media and hashtags, people love taking photos. Create a fun hashtag, specifically for your fiesta. One you’ve come up with a catchy hashtag, you’ll need to set the scene for the perfect photos. The decor will play a role but more on that later. First, you need photo props. These props should encompass traditional Mexican colors. Use sombreros or maracas and make sure they’re white, green, and red.
The decor will help set the entire stage for the ultimate fiesta. The usual colored streamers are a nice touch. Though to get even more into the fiesta theme, utilize pinatas of all sizes. You can have smaller pinatas as centerpieces and bigger ones for hitting. The trick to the decor is the color. Use as many different colors as you like and make sure they’re bright.
The music will create the ambiance you’re looking for in a real fiesta. Pick from traditional Mexican classics when building your playlists like Oye Como Va or La Bamba. Don’t worry about not being able to understand the words. The most important thing is that the Mexican style of music is entirely encompassed in your playlists.
There are plenty of Mexican classic drinks, both for adults and for children. Horchata is always a good bet and a safe bet for both adults and children. If you want to have a few adult beverages, offer different flavors. Margarita stations with different choices is always fun. You can even allow the kids to have some virgin margaritas to be like the adults.
