A few weeks ago, I helped plan a birthday party
for my best friend Amibeth! At first I had no idea what type of theme to go with for the party; however, after careful consideration I decided to throw her a FIESTA! Here are my tips on how to throw one of the most memorable Fiestas YET!
1.) Ambiance: Every party needs some character and this Fiesta was no exception. I decorated the front table with some goodies. This was the first thing the guests saw when they entered the Fiesta! I had a custom made Margarita glass for the birthday girl, Mini margarita shot glasses, Fiesta birthday cake, Picture frame with "Keep Calm and Drink A Margarita" decor, Mexican candy, and Napkins with tequila phrases.
2.) Mustaches: It's a pretty simple concept. If you are going to throw a FIESTA, it is a must to have mustaches for your guests. Can anyone really be in a fiesta without a mustache? NOT ME! I purchased the mustaches at The Dollar Tree, but you can also pick them up at your local Party City if The Dollar Tree near you is out of stock.
4.)Snacks: Keep your guests munching on snacks throughout the party to help eliminate hangovers. I went ahead and did the traditional chips and salsa for the party and later in the evening we did a BBQ with the following: Carne Asada, Chicken, Beans, Rice, and Guac. I had everyone that came to the party bring a side to help save on costs for the party. It worked very well and I am so appreciative for everyone that helped me out!
5.) Pinata:Must add the Pinata to the FIESTA. I went ahead and decorated the party with mini Pinatas around the house. I actually purchased the mini pinatas at a local liquor store for a reasonable price. They were a great touch.
