Wedding Shower Themes: Plan a Mexican Fiesta for Couples
Pick a Wedding Shower Theme Everyone Will Be Sure to Remember
There are so many wedding shower themes to choose from and coed showers are very popular, why not spice things up and plan a couple's shower? Speaking of 'spicing' things up, why not try a Mexican Fiesta? This fun theme is great for the bride-to-be and the groom.
Go Mexican with Your Wedding Shower Theme
For the bride-to-be, the thing she probably most looks forward to at her shower is all the gifts. But remember, we're inviting the groom, all his buddies, and the groomsmen to this fiesta and the most important thing for the guys is the food. And that's exactly why a Mexican fiesta is such a good theme for a coed shower.
You can really make an impression when you have a nacho bar at the shower. Make the centerpiece of the table a nacho cheese fountain. You can rent a chocolate fountain to use for your nacho cheese. All you have to do is thin the cheese down with a little bit of milk, make sure your cheese doesn't have any bits of salsa in it, and it flows out of the chocolate fountain perfectly.
Surround the fountain with baskets of different colored chips and have containers for toppings. Some toppings you'll need to include are different varieties of salsa, guacamole, sour cream, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, taco meat, and beans. Everyone serves himself or herself making your job as hostess super simple.
Make your arrangement attractive by putting the chips in baskets and the condiments and toppings in containers with a Mexican flair. Check home decorating stores to find serving pieces with Spanish influence, or use black wrought iron and black dishes. Fiesta™ dishes in the reds, yellows, and orange colors work well for this wedding shower theme too. See if you can borrow some from friends to put together a great look for the food table.
For drinks, you can have sodas, but be sure and add in a few Mexican drinks like sangria, margaritas, and anything made with tequila.
Mexican Fiesta Fun and Atmosphere
Guys aren't usually too crazy about playing wedding shower games, but if you play just a couple of printable games for wedding showers that are tailor-made for the couple or the Mexican theme; they'll like them much better.
To add to the Mexican wedding shower theme, don't forget to decorate with plenty of Mexican-themed decorations. Use colorful tablecloths draped with serapes or with a sombrero as the centerpiece. And don't forget to play Mexican music in the background for some possible dancing later in the shower.
Add all these ingredients together, plus the bride-to-be and the groom-to-be and you'll have a fantastic Mexican wedding shower theme that everyone will be sure to enjoy.
