For Jude's Puss in Boots birthday party we decided to do something a little different for food instead of the normal pizza or BBQ that we usually do. We created a yummy Taco Bar for everyone to enjoy! When I first started thinking about this task, I felt really overwhelmed but now that we achieved a great Taco Bar I know we will be doing it again for parties.
Here is our final product! Also notice our great decorations for our Puss in Boots birthday! So fun! To build our Taco Bar we decided to set it up just like a buffet table. This made the prep so easy. Most of the prep was able to be done the night before the party.
To cut down on the prep I did our chicken in the crock pot the night before, super easy. Add salsa to the chicken breast and cook for 6 hours on high, shred and keep refrigerated until the party day! We kept the Beans, Beef and Chicken on warm during lunch in crock pots! Great way to keep everything hot and ready!
For our Taco Bar we had the following food:
We got so many complements on our Taco Bar and everyone was thanking us for a yummy meal. I loved that it all came together perfectly. We had grapes and watermelon for our fruit too, again, super easy prep! Perfect for busy party days!
As I was planning our Taco Bar I started thinking about how to bring the fiesta to the table and have fun labels of everything we were serving. I asked my good friend Heather from Terrell Family Fun to help me create some festive Taco Bar Table Tents. Don't you love them? Thanks to Heather, our table was perfectly labeled. You can use these great labels for your next Taco Bar too! A total of 14 Table Tents for your Taco Bar.
