    I am having 2 Mexican Fiesta shows next month, and I wanted to try some "authenic" mexican recipes without making a mess. I went to the recipe files on the PC website, and looked at the Spanish Season's Best. There are some great ones there, and since I live in a suburb of Chicago, I can get the ingredients real easy. I am excited to try them out. Also, does anyone have instructions on making the big colorful flowers out of tissue paper, used in Mexican Fiesta decorating. I thought that would be a cheap way of adding some color to my decorating without spending alot of money. I have some mexican blankets that will work well. I am going to make a CD of murachi (sp) music to play before and after the show. Any other ideas are appreciated.

    Crepe Paper Flowers - Mexican Fiesta

    This link will provide you with the basics. You can use different sized paper than suggested. If you make larger, add a few more pieces of paper.
    You can also use multiple colors together instead of all the same. To me, they're more fiesta looking because the go with the colorful blankets, etc.

    Lastly, you can do the same thing with coffee filters and markers. Draw colors on the filter. Mist with water, or quickly lay in paper plate with little amount of water. This causes the colors to bleed. After they dry well, follow the directions on this link: http://www.kidsdomain.com/craft/flower1.html

    We've done both with Kindergarten and First graders. Quick, easy and fun.
