How To Create A Soccer Viewing Party At Home: Team Mexíco

We’re getting ready for the big soccer tournament that brings the world together. And if you’re wondering who we’ll be rootin’ for since USA did not qualify, we’ll be screaming “¡Si se puede!” into our TV screens. Team Mexíco all the way!  World Market - World Cup - Chips Salsa-World Market-Cost Plus- World Cup entertaining ideas- #discoverworldmarket

Many of you might not know this but I’m a daughter of immigrants. My parents came to the states when they were teens. Years later, they ended up meeting one another at a mutual friends wedding in Los Angeles, CA. They danced the night away and found out their families were both from the same exact small town in Mexíco. And both set of parents actually knew each other. I mean what are the odds of that happening? It was definitely meant to be. They got married and had two kids (my younger sister and I).  

Ever since I can remember, my parents have always loved watching soccer matches. I have so many fond memories of us screaming like crazy at the TV when our team, Las Chivas Rayadas de Guadalajara, scored a goal. I’m sure the entire neighborhood knew what we were watching and who we were rootin’ for. But the best part was gathering with friends and family to eat all the delicious Mexican food and drinks we had at our cozy home in South Gate, CA.

Fast forward to me having a family and home of my own. It’s now my turn to keep this tradition going and definitely loving the entertaining part of it. Which is why I wanted to share some ideas on how you too can entertain for the big soccer tournament.

If you caught our stories last week, we went shopping at one of my absolute favorite stores, Cost Plus World Market in Temecula, CA. I found so many awesome international food and decor options for game day and I’m so excited to share them all with you!

Fresh Fruit Cookie Jars

First things first, you all know I’m all about making quick eats on the healthier side. So the first thing that caught my eye was these adorable cookie jars. But instead of adding cookies, I thought of adding fresh fruit. What do you think? Aren’t they the cutest? I grabbed two jars because fruit is so perfect for warm days, amiright?World Market - World Cup - Chips Salsa-World Market-Cost Plus- World Cup entertaining ideas- #discoverworldmarket World Market - World Cup - Chips Salsa-World Market-Cost Plus- World Cup entertaining ideas- #discoverworldmarket

Margaritas

Second thing that caught my eye was this Organic Tres Agaves Margarita Mix. Love that it’s all natural and only has 68 calories per serving! Add salt to rim. For every 2 oz of Tequila mix with 3 oz of margarita mix. Poor over ice and add a lime garnish. Salted rim optional.World Market-Cost Plus- World Cup entertain ideas #discoverworldmarket

And what’s a margarita without a proper margarita glass? These marbled Carmen Margarita glasses set of 4 and pitcher are the prettiest. Love that they’re clear and white which goes with so many other colors. Perfect for entertaining multiple themes and gatherings.  

Table Linens

With my cute fruit jars and margaritas in hand, it was time to get some table linens. I love how these prints compliment one another and I’m a tad obsessed with the succulent napkin ring holders. I mean, seriously?

Also, since it’s starting to really warm up outside, I’m loving these chipotle chicken lettuce boats. The easiest to make too!

[#AD] Yes to pool parties, ice cream dates and the prettiest summer bouquets from @Teleflora 💐 I bet you didn’t know Teleflora's network of professional florists can create artistic arrangements like this one? I sure didn’t! This one reminds me of being on vacation in Hawaii. 🏝Swipe to see a close up & check out our stories to use our discount code on any gorgeous summer bouquet. 🤗👌
  • I thought it would be cute to get matching sunglasses & outfits to take a fun pic at this wall. I’ll blame the hot weather for this one. 😅 .
BUT, the truth is aren’t all the pics of our kids the best regardless if they’re looking at the camera, smiling or just being themselves? These are the real deal. Lexi running around not wanting to wear her sunglasses nor stand still. Mia not wanting to wear a dress & wanting to just climb things or take her own selfies with her iPod (aka phone). 🤣 Duh all kid things. Just a daily reminder to myself that I need to #letthembekids 🙈 .

  • Last Wednesday, I was invited to celebrate the launch of the new streamlined  @HonestBeauty products 
hosted by @jessicaalba at the Honest Headquarters. The event was nothing short of spectacular filled with delicious food, drinks and yummiest gluten-free vegan desserts from @yvonnesvegankitchen And, yes, Jessica Alba really is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. 😍 I asked her how she was able to balance family and business and guess what she said? She’s got the best help, her sis-in-law. 😘  She also mentioned that she created every single product for herself. How awesome is that? .
.
I was excited to try on some of the gorgeous  colors and new skin care products but most importantly to learn how gentle they are, how easy they are to put on & that they’re free of harmful additives. Find them all today @honest_beauty @Target @ultabeauty And check out my celebrity snap in my stories. ☺️ #CleanBeautyThatWorks #honestbeauty 📸 @lin_marty 💕

Fancy Nancy, is a new animated family comedy series centered on 6-year-old Nancy, who likes being fancy in everything from her advanced vocabulary to her creative attire. It’s geared towards kids age 2-7 and each episode contains funny heartfelt stories that highlight self-expression, being unique and family love.

And speaking of family love, it melts my heart to see our oldest reading Fancy Nancy books 📚 to her little sis. So you can just imagine the reaction these two had when they found out they were invited to a Fancy Nancy tea party inside Walt Disney Studios. And even got to see the first episode! 😱Beyond ecstatic and grateful. Merci it was all Magnifique! Can’t wait for you all to see it. Catch the premier tomorrow at 11a on Disney Junior. And stick around to see our stories of the event throughout the day. 💕#DisneyFancyNancy #DisneyJunior

And more so with kids. 😆 Amiright? Lately we’ve been going on day dates. And although extremely grateful for it, I’m now having #momguilt because our oldest is questioning why she can’t come with us and that we don’t play with her like we use to. 😩 The struggle of finding balance is real. How do you find balance? I feel like I’m being pulled different directions and I know I’m not alone on this. #momlifeyo #teammarriage 📸💕 @lilyro_

I try my best to make sure I’m #raisinggoodhumans but also independent & brave ones. Zip lining, archery, rock climbing, mining, cycling and hanging out with Santa🎅🏼& Mrs Claus 🤶🏻. Just some of the things our 6-year-old experienced yesterday. And although she’s scared of heights, she rock climbed on an outdoor 30-foot wall! Cried a little & attempted to go higher every time. She got more than half way up which is huge in her eyes. On the way out she said it was actually fun and wants to go on again to go higher. Yes my love! You are amazing. 🙌🏼 .
