Mexican Fiesta Dinner Party
Mexican Dinner Party: be transported to Mexico for dinner with this Mexican inspired menu, drink ideas and party decorations.
What every cold, snowy winter needs, is a Mexican Dinner Party to brighten things up! We recently joined a supper club -where 4 couples take turns hosting a dinner party. We meet about once a month, and this month our friends Dan and Heather hosted this fun fiesta.
We were greeted by this sweet wreath on the door, that set the tone for a fun filled night! It’s made out of a foam wreath, with cocktail umbrellas stuck into it. So easy, and so colourful! Loved it.
We were welcomed in with a drink -some fun Mexican beer, and tropical coolers.
Our hosts also made some lovely fruit salad, and served it in fruit bowls, before and during dinner.
I loved the festive setting they created for the night, with a few fun, colourful decorations.
On the side buffet, there were some bottles of water and straws for guests.
They also bought some delicious, fresh chips from a local favourite restaurant and served them in simple paper bags -love the presentation.
You can also see the amazing layered Mexican salad they made for the night -it was so good!
Mexican Dinner Party Table
I also loved the table setting.
Heather used a rustic burlap runner, and potted succulents for the perfect starting point. She added some colour with fun napkins and ribbons.
I loved the individual condiments and fixings at every ones place setting. Heather served salt and pepper in tiny wooden serving pieces, salsa in mini margarita glasses from the party store -could it get any cuter? and cheese, sour cream and guacamole in a side plate. It looked amazing.
Mexican Dinner Party Menu
The menu for the night was really perfect for a fun dinner party, since it was mostly all make-ahead. They started with the fruit salad, then served a Mexican casserole of soft tacos, beef, rice, veggies and cheese, along with corn on the cob, a Mexican salad, chips with all the fixings, a warm caso cheese dip, and corn bread. It was so yummy.
For dessert, our friends served great cupcakes from a local cupcake shop, and all dressed up for the fiesta with some fun piñata inspired cupcake pics.
Heather also made some baked Churo Bites -recipe from here.
I really had such a great time. It was the perfect fun, colourful evening to take your mind off of all this snow. If you can’t get away for spring break, perhaps a one night escape like this is the perfect idea -it was an amazing adult night out, but would be a wonderful family night in theme too. With a Mexican Fiesta dinner party with friends, life really is a party!

As it’s cold and wet in England at the moment this cheered me up no end. Great ideas – looking forward to seeing what everybody comes up with -this should be right up your street Dannyelle.
