If you’re planning a Cinco de Mayo party or other Mexican-themed celebration, we have the BEST products to help you throw the ultimate fiesta!
Tips for a Festive Fiesta
Here at Lil’ Luna, we love Mexican food and we love Mexican-themed parties! If you’re looking for ideas on how to throw the ultimate fiesta, we’ve got you covered. Here are some easy ways to make your fiesta one for the books:
- Decorate with bright colors. Mexico is vibrant and colorful, so your fiesta should be too!
- Serve food buffet style. Hopefully you’re planning to serve lots of yummy Mexican food (we happen to know a place where you can find some amazing recipes!). At a fiesta, food is best served buffet-style so guests can pick and choose what they want.
- Make it fun. A fiesta is all about food AND fun! Music, dancing, games, and a photo booth will add even more fun to the party.
We have some great products that will help you throw the ultimate fiesta! From decorating to preparing and serving the food, these items will make your next Mexican-themed party easy to plan and a blast to be at!
Fixing the Fiesta
Mexican food just might be our favorite cuisine, and we have some products that make it so easy to prepare.
Electric Chopper – If you don’t love chopping up onions, garlic, peppers and other veggies, you’ve got to try this chopper! It saves so much time and work when making recipes that require a lot of chopping like Pico de Gallo.
Tamale Steamer – If you like tamales but don’t have one of these, do yourself a favor and grab one. It’s the best way to steam tamales!
Cob Corn Stripper – Have you ever tried cutting kernels off a corn cob? If so, you know it’s a pain–unless you have this handy product. This makes it so much easier to use fresh corn instead of canned for Mexican Street Corn!
Pepper Core Remover – This gadget is genius! It has a sharp spiral edge that allows you to efficiently and quickly cut and remove seeds from peppers for appetizers like Jalapeno Poppers or Sausage Stuffed Jalapenos.
Cheese Grater – If you’re still using an old-school box cheese grater, stop! This rotary grater requires minimal effort and gets the job done in a fraction of the time.
Tortilla Press – This cast iron tortilla press has been a lifesaver when making Homemade Flour Tortillas (it also works great for corn tortillas). It makes it so easy to press the dough and get them just the right shape!
Jelly Roll Pan – This is our all-time favorite pan, and it’s our number one choice when making Baked Chicken Chimichangas. It’s also a great pan for baking cookies like our yummy Mexican Wedding Cookies–a great addition to any fiesta!
For Your Fiesta Food
Presentation is key when when serving food! These are some products we love to use to make food look extra appetizing at fiestas.
Chip & Salsa Bowl – We all know chips and salsa are a staple at any fiesta, and this dish is a stylish way to serve them.
Taco Holders – Your guests will love how fun these colorful taco holders are as well as how they prevent the taco toppings from spilling out.
Taco Bar Condiment Platter – This large platter is both amusing and a smart way to serve all the taco toppings without having to use a bunch of bowls or take up too much space on the serving table.
Mini Salsa Bowls – These salsa bowls are just like the ones they have at Mexican restaurants but more colorful! We love spreading out these bowls full of Homemade Salsa, Sweet Salsa Verde or Queso Blanco on the eating tables.
Disposable Buffet Set – This buffet set–complete with fuel pans–is a lifesaver at parties and would work wonderfully at a fiesta! And the best thing about them is that you can just toss them at the end of the night!
Tortilla Warmer – This large and durable tortilla warmer makes it so easy to heat up tortillas in the microwave without drying them out. It will keep tortillas warm and fresh for the duration of your party.
Make It Fun and Festive
