okie dokie, so my wonderful husband is turning 33 on feb 4th and we plan on having a birthday party for him on feb 2. i know, a day before the super bowl and we were thinking of having a sunday, super bowl/birthday party but he's a chef and i'm sure his work is gonna be super busy and we're not sure what time he'll actually get out of work =/ not to mention, i'm sure our guests will have multiple SB partys to go to (most of us are niner fans, lol!)

anywho. so yes. feb 2. 33 years old. not a major milestone but my hubbs is totally deserving of a great bday party! i told him to decide on the food; do we want to get something or cook ourselves? of course being a chef himself, he decided to cook the food! and he decided on mexcian. since he decided on mexcian food and it's a birthday party we decided to have it be a fiesta themed party. we're both mexican, but any help i can get on making his party awesome would be great!

we got the food down. "street" style tacos (taco truck style? basically warmed up corn tortillas topped with some chicken or carne asada, onions and cilantro, and salsa), rice, beans, salsa verde, salsa, pico de gallo, guacamole, bean dip, PLENTY of tortilla chips. i super want to buy a pack of brown paper bags and put a handful of tortilla chips in them so guests can just grab them and munch!

first question: what's a good dessert to go with this theme? besides flan. or fried ice cream. or tres leches. while looking up ideas on craftster i saw the idea of churros. any recipes my fellow craftsters have tried? and in general it doesn't have to be a big dessert since we're having a birthday cake also.

second question: decoration ideas!! we've found some things at our local hobby lobby and party guys stores. (lol, i totally want to get little fake moustaches!) but any ideas on hand made decorations? oh! anyone have any great tuts on diy pinatas?

third question: speaking of pinata, what would be some good ADULT type items to stick in there? lol, not condoms! (yeah, my dirty mind thinks like that, lol!) we were thinking of some candy still for sure. maybe a few dollar shooters..i think we've saw some for a dollar before...basically we don't want little toys, so anything you guys can think of besides candy? if if it's something diy, i'm down for making a few of them =)

i believe that's the only questions i have. any help/tips/ideas/input would be GREATLY appreciated =) thanks everyone!

And your scared to death that you are never going to come alive.

I'm planing a fiesta party for my daughter, so far for decorations I'm doing papel picado, fringed tissue paper, tissue flowers, and serapes for the tables.

For desserts you could do mexican sweet breads, dessert empenadas or burritos.

I LOVE that idea! How cute would it be to have everyone running around in ponchos and sombreros? *goes to add them to party to-do list*
