Party Plan: Host a Girls’ Fiesta Night!

Simple steps + cute DIYs for hosting a fabulously chic Fiesta Girl's night!

I‘m so tickled pink to share this party table with y’all! I designed it for the launch of Inspired Gatherings, a new site for Kroger that is packed full of entertaining ideas for lots of occasions (and yummy recipes too)! I was thrilled to help contribute content for the site in the form of this festively chic Fiesta Girl’s Night! Plus, ALL the items (minus the tablecloth which was a fun fabric from a fabric store) came from Kroger! ALL OF IT!

I created 4 DIY ideas shown on the table that my guests loved too! Each are listed below and you can find the step-by-steps over on  Inspired Gatherings

Cut a pepper and hollow out to make a cute individual salad bowl! Pizzazzerie.com

1st up are these easy-to-make pepper salad bowls! They’re the perfect size for individual portions. Get the step-by-step for my pepper salad bowls here. I love these pepper bowls for holding anything from grains like couscous all the way to guacamole and salsa. The possibilities are really endless and the presentation gets everyone talking. You could even group several together with various salsas on a cake stand or platter.

Quick and easy DIY for making homemade lemon votive candle holders! Pizzazzerie.com

These little lemon votives were quite possibly my favorite of the 4 DIYs! They’re ridiculously simple yet very effective in adding a simple lighting element and pop of extra color to the table. They’re much more fun than simple votives, don’t ya think? Try this idea with limes or oranges too! Get the DIY here.

How to use mini peppers to create a fabulous vase for a fiesta night party! Pizzazzerie.com

Next up was this easy to make centerpiece using mini peppers! Are they not the cutest? Not to mention delicious. And this DIY provides lots of color to the table too. I love using food to create a smokin’ hot party table! Get the DIY here.

How to make a mini pepper garland! Pizzazzerie.com

Last but not least, a mini pepper garland! I love this simple idea because you can buy thin string and mini peppers and – voila! It really couldn’t be simpler. Gotta love EASY DIYs right? I love the festive touch it added as it hung over the tablescape. It’s simple and colorful. Try making it for your next party! Get the DIY here.

How to throw a fabulous girl's night fiesta party!

Thanks for checking out my girls’ night fiesta party, y’all! It was so much fun to put together. I just loved the pops of coral + pink. I’d love for you to share it on Pinterest if you love it too! And Visit Kroger’s Inspired Gatherings to see more!
