Everyone loves tacos! Taco snacks, taco cake, walking tacos … Tacos make delicious party food and fiesta-style décor can set the scene. Decorate with a vivid bunting from Party City


There are so many creative ways to feature tacos. The new trend for “Birthday Tacos” is a great one to try. Simply arrange tacos on a big platter in the shape of the number representing the age of the birthday kid. You could even get the tacos from your local Mexican restaurant or fast food place to make it easier. 

A DIY taco bar where guests can add what they like to their tacos will be a hit. A great post from Cheryl at Moms and Munchkins explains how to set up your own. 

For less mess, serve up Walking Tacos. These are very convenient because all your toppings are contained in the bag — the chips are the base instead of a taco shell and the bag is the bowl. Brilliant!

A tutorial from Chelsey at Chelsweets shows you how to make a taco cake from a simple yellow cake. 


For an activity, we love this taco pinata from Party City.
