Southwestern Party Theme

The more color, the better.

About the Theme

Make your next event a southwestern soirée. This theme makes a beautiful and vibrant statement for anniversaries, baby showers, birthday celebrations and more. Get inspired by the Sonoran desert to create the perfect laid-back, bohemian vibes this theme calls for. Blanket all the tabletops in cacti and succulents, and throw in textured pebbles and metallic accents for good measure.

VIBE: Bohemian

Host at a dynamic loft that you can dress up or down according to your preference. The open space encourages a laid-back atmosphere.

With so many regional influences behind this theme, only a live musician can pull off the right playlist, not to mention the transition between popular covers and regional sounds.

Taco Bar

Serve up a customizable food experience with a taco bar. Guests can play with bold flavors, from mild to hot, and top their plates according to their taste. Offering toppings that cover all the bases: meats (chicken, chorizo, steak), veggies (peppers, cabbage, tomatoes), cheese, salsas and hot sauces.

Stir up some mezcal cocktails like margaritas or palomas. Or introduce your guests to something new by swapping mezcal into a different summertime favorite, like a mezcal mule.

Cactus Décor

Place cactus arrangements and illustrations throughout the event to lend a dessert feeling to the atmosphere: by the bar, tabletops and anywhere else that can use some sprucing up, like restroom countertops. Mix in vibrant pink and orange florals for a pop of color.
