Tacos are big in my house. My kids and husband alike look forward to a Mexican feast—mainly because they all loves chips, salsa, guacamole and cheese—but also because the meal, with all its moving parts, is just plain festive. Unlike mac and cheese night or pizza night, tacos involve bowls overflowing with lettuce and beans and rice and cheese, from which everyone gets to pinch and pick as they cobble together their very own, totally-unique-to-them taco.
And while I don’t always roll out the red carpet (or break out the nice napkins) on a random Tuesday with my kids, I do when I’m entertaining friends. Hosting a Mexican-themed party at your house is just so easy—the cuisine it easy to divvy up for a potluck-style meal (one person brings the guac, another is responsible for the seven layer dip). And while you might not be in charge of the entire menu, that doesn’t mean the evening should lack in authenticity. A tortilla warmer, for instance, is practical and harkens to everyone’s favorite Mexican restaurant, whereas the artisan-made margarita glasses I’ve included below are a must for when the happy hour portion of the night officially kicks off. Festive patterns and bright colors (and a gorgeous glass pitcher!) round out the theme. So, if you don’t have taco night on your calendar, you better get one on there stat.
