How To Throw the Ultimate Mexican Fiesta
Whether you’re planning the ultimate bash for Cinco de Mayo or you just want to plan a party of epic proportions, there’s no better word than that of fiesta to take the celebrating up a few notches. If you’ve ever stopped in at Verde Kitchen for our authentic Mexican cuisine, then you know how much we take our celebrating seriously. We’ve gathered up a list of steps to throw your own fiesta for your party’s pleasure.
The key to throwing the ultimate fiesta all comes down to the atmosphere. Your guests want to be instantaneously swept off into another world. You can create this lively and whimsical atmosphere with decorations, which are the cornerstone for any successful fiesta. Choose lively colors, and don’t hold back from being as extravagant as possible. Bright tablecloths and the ceremonial pinata are tried and true and are excellent ways to liven up any room you choose to celebrate in. Don’t hold back on music either, the more lively you can make the situation the more fun your guests will have.
One of the tricks to throwing a successful fiesta is offering your guests a wide variety of drinks so you can enjoy the festivities and not be straddled with the role of bartender. Variety is the name of the game. Consider some pre-made margaritas and some imported Mexican beers on tap. (Dos Equis & Tecate are very popular with just about any crowd.) Of course, keep plenty of water and other non-alcoholic beverages on hand for those who might be driving or are abstaining from alcohol for the time being.
This is the ingredient that turns a good fiesta into a great one. While the cornerstone of good fiesta food can be found in a taco bar, this is your chance to go all out and really roll out the red carpet for you and your guests. Select food such as tamales and stuffed peppers, items that can be pre-made and stored overnight. There are a wide variety of traditional Mexican dishes that have their own recipes. If you find all of this preparation a bit too overwhelming, you might want to consider a catering company to help you out in your time of need.
