Tex-Mex Fall Party

Turn the same old get-together into a Tex-Mex themed celebration.
Serve up some 7-Layer Southwestern Dip at your Tex-Mex bash.

Celebrate with the conquistadores and say gracias, graciously. Break out the bandanas, turn up the two-step, and savor the salsa. Take a whack at a turkey pinata and let the candy corn flow.

Invitation Ideas

  • Cactus- or chili pepper-shaped invites can be purchased at a stationery store (look for note cards) or you can draw or download your own images and get busy with the scissors.
  • Find or make taco-shaped note cards (a yellow circle folded in half will do) and place a turkey cutout (try a stationery store or draw or download the image) inside. Write your invitations on the flip side of the turkey.
