I thought I should post about the party we did since I asked a bunch of questions leading up to it. Feel free to delete if this isn’t ok to post here. We hosted about 40 people for a fiesta themed 1st birthday party for my daughter. Even though the weather wasn’t perfect, it worked out great. We rented a big tent, chairs and tables from Acme Party Rental.
We catered make your own tacos with all the sides (pork with pineapple and chicken), flautas, rice and beans and chips and salsa. I made a roasted corn salsa and guacamole because I was paranoid we wouldn’t have enough food. HA! We got the food from Tropico in Keyport and it was a huge success. People went crazy for it. Next time I will order way less, we gave away a ton.
I got a cake from Normandie Bakery in Hazlet which was also delicious and hired a server who worked her tail off via Servers for Hire. Highly recommend. The first party we have hosted I was able to actually spend time chatting with people and enjoying!
Oh and enormous batch of margaritas by just scaling up our regular ratio (2 oz tequila, 3/4 oz simple syrup, 3/4 oz lime juice).
