How to Host a Taco Party







Spring and Summer are the 

perfect times to host a Taco Party.





Pull out your most colorful dishes 

and accents that offer a bit of texture.




Mix in some seaside details.





Serve fish tacos 

for a light, healthy entrée.






I captured this table setting 

at a local Pottery Barn.

Simply couldn't resist sharing these 

colorful dishes and fun ideas.




Pottery Barn's Cabo Melmaine outdoor 

dishes come in both red and blue.




The designs are taken from earthenware 

but made in unbreakable melamine.




In addition to the dinnerware sets, 

Pottery Barn also offers several fun 

serving pieces, like this set of condiment bowls and tray.




The display table at Pottery Barn 

mixed the Cabo pattern with 

pieces of PB's Rope Outdoor Collection. 




A table runner woven of pure cotton 

added vibrant color and texture 

perfect for the Mexican theme.

  5. I've been resisting walking into Pottery Barn and buying those small glass bowls. I particularly like the green ones. Pottery Barn's design value has consistently elevated for the last five years. Great table. Thanks for taking us to the mall. Cherry Kay

  9. What an interesting combination of dishes and accessories on this table. I guess that is why we all love PB so much! With Cinco de Mayo coming up, I guess we should all be thinking about tacos and Margaritas, of course - lol!! Thanks for sharing this wonderful table, Sarah!

  27. Fish tacos? I LOVE them! What a cute tablescape, and who'd ever know those dishes were melamine? I need to go to PB. Haven't been there since before Easter, and then didn't get a thing. Happy Sunday.

  28. Hi Sarah, I love these patterns from Pottery Barn.I saw a similar table there last weekend. A Taco Party would be fun, but anything on this table would be.
    I don’t think your new posts are feeding Sarah. Mine quite several new posts ago and seems to be stuck again.
    Hope you are having a great weekend.

  30. What a fun idea. Here in Oklahoma, we have beef or chicken tacos. Not much fish. The table settings look like a fiesta ready to happen.

  41. Sarah,
    Delightful tablescape, dear friend!!!
    "Mr. Ed" and I have been looking at melmaine dinnerwre for the back deck On Crooked Creek. It certainly has taken a more classic appeal since my first set in the 1970's!!!
    Thanks for sharing!!!
