Salsa & Margaritas Adult Birthday Party

Since August is my birthday month (yeah for birthdays, maybe less yeah for getting a year older), when Cat from Pocket of Posies asked if I wanted to participate in an adult birthday party blog hop I was in! I love celebrating birthdays, but usually only plan fun parties for the kids. Not anymore! I think I need to be better at celebrating mine and my husbands birthdays with fun parties (and I can share more party decor and ideas with you too). So the next question was what do I want for my birthday??? Oh the possibilities…

When I thought about what I would want for my birthday party, I wanted an evening with friends, some easy food, and a fun drink! Since I am a little “spicy” (according to my sweet husband), what better way to celebrate another year than with salsa and margaritas? I am a huge fan of salsa, not just plain salsa, but all different kinds of salsas. So for my party, I created this fun Salsa & Margaritas adult birthday party.

I love to go all out for my kids birthday parties, but for my own party, I don’t want to spend the week leading up to it busy with preparations. Salsa is the best solution for this because you can prepare it super fast and even the night before. There are so many different recipes, or have each guest bring their favorite so you can try new ones! Then throw together a pitcher of your favorite margaritas (I absolutely love the Trader Joe’s brand margarita mixes, this is not a sponsored post, I just really enjoy both their original and mango mixes so I thought I would share) and you are ready to party!

Of course you do need to make the party pretty, but again, not too much work, so I made a few printables to help you with that. How about a “spicy” party invitation that you can print, text or send on Facebook to all your friends?

And for the party you will need some easy labels so everyone knows what kinds of salsa they are enjoying. If you want to get extra crazy, go ahead and add some balloons or a banner, but I’m keeping it really easy so my salsa & margaritas adult birthday party is all about the friends, food, and drinks.
