Host A Fiesta

As the weather heats up, the colors get brighter and food, spicier! What better way to take advantage than to throw a backyard fiesta. So grab those maracas, sip a margarita, and make some tapas!

Setting: Find a place with a bright palette. It saves you the time and energy spent to create one. Bold colors are best!

Menu: Invite friends to B.Y.O.T. Bring your own tapas! Small bites make the perfect party food. From chili shrimp tapas to fried chickpeas, we’ve got several recipes to get your party started. Serve up Mexican sodas and margaritas to wash those appetizers down.

Favors: Traditional Mexican tiles double as coasters that guests can take home with them. Find the simple tutorial here.

Decor: Drench your party in warm bright hues from napkins and plates to a hanging paper garland and flagged skewers. Save yourself a trip to the florist by making some tissue paper flowers!
