Fun ideas for an AHR that's more of a party than a reception

Recommended Posts

What about the autographed fiesta donkey? Like kate (LALA) had at her wedding?

I was considering a margarita machine, but my mom gave me the idea to get a big drink despenser & make margaritas on the rocks. it would be a lot cheaper. You can also get a margarita machine at sam's for $180.

Jamy is a rockstar because the Mexican candy is also a great idea - there are lots of yummy things you could put out. and As far as the taco stand, this is the #1 recommendation I have - my FI's parents do this when they host garden parties and its amazing and so fun. Especially if you can get someone to do tacos al pastor...yum!
