Amy's Mexican Fiesta - MexicoMelissa look here!

Recommended Posts

I thought I would share this with Melissa and any other bride planning a fun AHR. We had a Mexican Fiesta for my 21st B-day and had a blast! I made all the tissue paper strings (at night, you can't tell what a horrible job i did!). We also strung colored bulbs throughout the yard. My brother and I made the taco stand which was actually used. We hired ppl to come make tacos and my mom made tamales and pozole too. As our table settings, we found cheap knit fabric as tableclothes. I found large coca-cola cups at the 99cents store and used them as vases and placed two sunflowers in each per table. Each table had mexican candy and a bottle of tequila.

Everyone stepped up and pitched in! We found a ton of junk in our garage and used it as decor. My parents are Mexican so we had a ton of useless stuff! My uncle even found a rooster and chicken which we placed on top of a hey stack by the portapotty we rented!

I know what you mean, but if you purchase the masa or dough already made, all you have to do is make the filling and steam them.

Amy-

That looks great! And I bet it was so much fun!!! That is what we are planning on doing for our AHR (for 300+ people). I can't wait. I think I'm almost as excited for the Fiesta as the DW!

Thanks ladies! We def had a blast.

 

Melissa- I'm sure we had more than 100ppl that night. You can't tell from the pics but it was crowded. I think you may have to open up your house for guests if you feel that you can't fit 150!

 

Anny- Its my mom's dream to open a "cenaduria" (sp??). She was really tempeted to leave all the decorations up! haha!

 

by the way, we had so much fun finding things to decorate with. You can't tell from the pic, but my dad had a weelbarrow which was falling apart. he was ready to throw it out, but we lined it with thick black plastic, filled it with ice and stuck a ton of corona's in there at the entrance of the yard!
