      Anny I love all the ideas everyone has given you already. I was going to say you should get a pinata of a donkey that would probably be fun. And I love Merryme's idea of enlarging the loteria cards and making them into placemats. What about throwing a couple of sombreros on some chairs for extra decoration? What about those mini guitars? Are they cheap? I remember when I went to RM I bought one for FI and it was so cute. Maybe you could do that for a favor? If not I love T's cactus plant idea.

        i had a shower that had a latin theme - it wasn't exactly mexican but we did some really cute things...

        i used orange, pink, red, green and blue and made it look like a fiesta. i made authentic recipes and had little cards explaining what everything was, strawberry mint white wine sangria (YUM), i bought vintage linens to use on the tables, bunches of these flowers...

          what about using on your tables "mexican" style oil cloth- You know the one I'm talking about! The one all of us latinas grandmas had on their kitchen tables.

          Bright colors and fruit or flowers all over them. You can but them by the yard cheap.

          Oh! You could take a small sombrero hat and flip it upside down. Use that as the snack bowl that people often place in the center of tables with nuts or trail mix inside.

            We are throwing a "Pre-Wedding Fiesta" on Labor Day weekend. My Mom is really creative and has come up with lots of fun ideas. Here are some of my favorites:

            - For favors we filled little white boxes with authentic Mexican candies, and then decorated the boxes with bright ribbon.

            -We made TONS of tissue paper flowers and are planning on using them everywhere.

            - Each table gets their own salsa, guacomole, and chips.

            -We painted Margarita glasses, filled them with sand, and added a votive inside.

            - We bought some large margarita glasses, and are going to put pyramids of key limes in them.

            - We are having a "tequila tasting" table with different brands of tequila, shot glasses, salt and limes.

            -There will also be margarita machines and coronas, of course.

            - We bought a pinata with long streamers and are going to use it as a decoration over the dance floor, and have guests hit it at the end of the night

            That's all I can think of for now...

                  Great ideas!!! Anny you have everything already for your mexican party!!!!
                  mmmmm.... what about placing the salsa on small molcajetes in the tables, there are some big stars made out of metal material ( laton) at the mercados, there are lighted and you can hang around the tables, those are really cute and look great during the night, and using rebozos tied around the chairs
