Taco parties are all about fun and connecting, and tend to be less formal.

The food is literally, “the life of the party.”  The taco party decorations also need to be a consideration, although they are not a matter to split one’s hair over.  Keep everything simple, and focus on providing excellent food and company.

So, whether you are hosting a taco party for Cinco de Mayo, Taco Tuesday, birthday parties, or just a good afternoon with loved ones – you may appreciate the ideas that I have gathered up.  I loved the concept as I was planning for a family gathering.
