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!

Funny thing is Lexi got to open a few things I’m adding to their #valentine bags while we were unboxing. She kept telling her sis Mia all about it when she got home from school. But Mia had no idea what little sis was talking about. 😂 So Lexi got first dibs this time around. Check our stories to see. And how cute are these tees??🤩 #ad @dmodamia 📸 @lilyro_
