Host a small group of friends for a sweet Fiesta! Whatever the reason, bridal shower, baby sprinke, girls night, bachelorette party or birthday, this theme is fun and easy. Start with a soft and pretty invitation to set the tone.
Coordinate your wrapping paper for a fun pulled together look, especially for small gatherings.
For small gatherings, serve individual servings of salsa and dips.
Mini tacos can be dressed up with crumbled mexican cheese, fresh cilantro, chopped green onion and lime wedges. You can even take a shortcut and dress up freezer aisle tacos with fresh ingredients. Serve them on a wood board.
Grilled shrimp with honey, lime and cilantro make simple bite sized kabobs. Fresh fruit seasoned with chile lime salt is a perfect sweet side dish.
The kitchen counter is a perfect place to set up your spread and let guests linger. I got to use my friend Natasha’s gorgeous kitchen for this one!
I love these cactus glasses made by Libbey for our signature drinks. They are nice and heavy and perfect for the occasion and beyond. This is why I love small gatherings, it makes adding these special touches reasonable. The yellow pitcher was a thrift shop find that I just love.
My sister made these adorable cactus sugar cookies. Check out Little Miss Sweet Tooth on Facebook for more of her fabulous desserts.
Serve a SIGNATURE drink like this Mexican Paloma with lime wedges on the rocks.
1 1/2 ounces tequila | 3 ounces grapefruit soda | 1 teaspoon salt | 1 slice lime
