Raise the Bar

Welcome guests with sweet mango margaritas served in a clear decanter that's large enough for a crowd. Add lots of fun color with paper-flower garlands, shockingly pink glassware and a massive display of gladiolas.

Pop a Top

Transport guests to a sunny beach by serving Mexican beer and sparkling water, all topped off with a twist of lime. For a laid-back presentation (and to make things easy on the host), display in a bucket filled with ice so guests can help themselves.

Bite by Bite

The only thing better than tacos are miniature tacos. A variety of fillings and taco shells can be prepared ahead of time, then quickly assembled right before guests arrive.

La Musica

To take this party over the top, invite a Spanish guitarist or mariachi musician to make a surprise entrance. The ambiance and conversation are instantly lifted by the sounds of light strumming, serenading guests late into the night.
