DIY Gold Leaf Maracas

Materials

  • Maracas (I used mint and coral)
  • Gold leaf sheets
  • Mod podge
  • Foam brush

Instructions

  1. Use the foam brush to coat the maraca with a thin layer of mod podge. Allow to dry slightly to become tacky.
  2. Place gold leaf sheets on the top half of the maraca using a pair of tweezers. Smooth the gold leaf down.
  3. Allow to dry completely.

Ultimate Salsa and Guacamole Platter

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of guacamole
  • 1 cup of corn salsa
  • 1 cup of pico de gallo
  • 1 cup of medium salsa
  • 1/2 cup of chopped red onion
  • 3 jalapenos, sliced
  • 2 mangos, chopped
  • 2 avocados, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of Cotija cheese
  • Tortilla chips
  • 3 limes, sliced
  • 1 bunch of cilantro

Directions

  1. Arrange 10 bowls and ramekins on a large tray.
  2. Fill each bowl with a different ingredient.
  3. Garnish the tray with tortilla chips, fresh lime slices and cilantro.
  4. Serve remaining chips in a large bowl next to the tray.

Avocado and Fire Roasted Corn Crostini

Ingredients

  • 1 baguette, sliced
  • 2 avocados
  • 4 ears corn, husks and silk removed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/2 tsp ancho chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup Cotija cheese
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

Directions

  1. Boil corn for 5-7 minutes in salted water. Remove corn from pot and set aside.
  2. Preheat grill or grill pan on medium-high heat. Rub corn with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt. Grill corn, turning occasionally, until lightly charred all over, approximately 2-3 minutes. Allow to cool and then cut kernels from cob.
  3. Toast sliced baguette on the grill, approximately 1 minute per side.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, 1/2 of lime juice, paprika, ancho chili powder, and chili powder. Season with salt. Add corn kernels and stir.
  5. Mash avocados in a small mixing bowl and combine with remaining lime juice. Season with salt.

Styling tips

One Stylish Party shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

Set the tone with a modern fiesta invitation. Keep the design minimal and bring in personality with the use of bold fonts and colorful mini tassel details. Be sure to relay any info your guests might need to know, such as the dress code (I asked my guests to wear white).

Tip 2

Choose an unexpected color palette for your fiesta, paired with traditional Mexican decorations. The easiest way to personalize an overdone party theme is to change up the colors that are typically associated with it. For my fiesta, I choose a mostly white color pallet with pops of mint green and pink. To ensure it still looked like a fiesta, I still sourced many Mexican decorations, such as papel picado, piñatas and maracas, but only in the set party colors.

Tip 3

Get creative with the florals. Incorporate bright, seasonal blooms in organic arrangements to give your fiesta a chic, feminine vibe. Accent the floral arrangements with small potted cacti that can be displayed on the tablescape, appetizer table and bar cart.

Tip 4

Serve classic Mexican appetizers and cocktails that everyone loves. There’s no need to re-invent the wheel with developing your party menu. There is something about a classic margarita that feels so right at a fiesta. And who doesn’t love guacamole and tacos? Keep it simple and pick tried and true recipes that you know your guests will enjoy.

Tip 5

Bring the party to life with a festive music playlist. Also, be sure to include fun interactive elements, such as maracas, which are fun for dancing or for photo ops.
