HAVE GUESTS DRESS UP
Keep in mind what is culturally appropriate and keep it classy. Bright colors, florals and patterns are traditional and a lot of fun. Ladies, add some fresh flowers to your hairstyle!
OFFER MULTIPLE SPECIALTY COCKTAILS
A classic margarita is always a festive favorite. Let Snake Oil Cocktail bring a few twists to your bar like a grapefruit paloma, pitaya margarita or spicy mango marg! We’ll be sure to offer your guests salt or no salt while you’re sharing stories and connecting with friends.
HOST A GUACAMOLE CONTEST
What’s better than margaritas and guacamole? Having TONS of guacamole. Have guests bring their best dip and supply lots of corn chips. You can pick up bags of chips from El Nopalito or El Indio. Take it one step further with a mole competition for your guests who are pros in the kitchen.
GO TO A MEXICAN BAKERY
Pick up a few traditional desserts or sweet breads (pan dulce) from Panchita’s. As a host, it’s one less thing to worry about and your guests will be raving about the authentic treats. Try to keep it local, and support a small business near you. The prices are usually better too, with a taste to match!
IT'S NOT A PARTY WITHOUT MUSIC
Use your Bose speaker system and choose a playlist from Spotify or pay a few extra bucks for a small mariachi band to play for the crowd for an hour. If your group is musically inclined, keep the guitar and drums out and encourage your friends to sing along.
FLEXIBLE CATERING OPTIONS
When hosting your fiesta fun at JULEP venue, you have access to a full service kitchen and the ability to bring in outside caterers. This means you don’t have to narrow it down between the made-to-order taco cart or the catered enchiladas. The limit does not exist!
