When it comes to throwing a party, few cuisines are as popular as Mexican food. If you’re planning on hosting a Mexican dinner party, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind. This blog post will discuss some essential tips for throwing a successful Mexican dinner party.
Set The Theme
There are many ways you can set the theme for your Mexican dinner party. The easiest option is to use solid colors and vibrant patterns throughout, which will instantly create a fun atmosphere. You can also add items like sombreros, maracas, and piñatas to help make guests feel like they’re at a real fiesta!
Coordinate The Music
Mexican cuisine is all about flavor and spice, so it’s important to have the right music playing in the background. Mariachi bands are a great option, or you could simply choose some Latin-inspired tunes that will get everyone in the mood for a party.
Decide On A Three Course Meal
As in most dinner parties, the menu is one of the most important aspects; however, when it comes to Mexican food, you will want to make sure that you have a backup plan. For example, if your vegetarian neighbor cannot eat meat and seafood because of their dietary restrictions or lifestyle choices, then perhaps consider including some vegetarian-friendly options such as rice dishes or salads. You don’t want anyone feeling left out at such an event!
Starters – A Meze Platter
This is a great way to begin the meal and get everybody’s appetite going. You could serve your guests some chopped-up vegetable sticks, guacamole, salsa fresca, and pickle hummus, all of which would go perfectly with tortilla chips and pitas! The best part about this option is that it won’t take much prep time beforehand either, as long as you have all of these ingredients on hand in advance.
Mains – Tacos
Whether you want to make your own tacos or buy them in a box, this is an excellent option for those who are looking for something simple yet delicious. You could also serve some rice and beans on the side if that’s what suits your fancy! Don’t forget to include multiple toppings, each to suit your guest’s tastes.
Dessert – Churros And Ice Cream
There is nothing better than freshly fried churros with vanilla ice cream on the side! Plus, they’re so easy to make, which means less time spent in front of the stove and more fun out there on that dance floor dancing away like nobody’s watching.
Choose Your Drinks
Margaritas are a must for any Mexican dinner party! Be sure to stock up on tequila, lime juice, and Triple Sec. When deciding on drinks, it’s vital to have both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. While margaritas are an authentic Mexican theme drink, not everyone will want one, so be sure to have some beers, sodas, and water on hand as well.
With these tips in mind, you’re sure to throw a Mexican dinner party that your guests will never forget!
