Elizabeth’s husband, Scott turned the big 4-0 back in March…and we threw a “Fortieth Fiesta” to celebrate! The party was held in the Seaton’s backyard…we had catering by a taco truck, an amazing bartender / mixologist making custom drinks, the best photobooth (Red Photo Booth), and a tasty dessert bar. The color palette was inspired by a Mexican tablecloth that Karrie found, so we stuck with bright colors and lots of them! It was one of those parties where nothing necessarily “matched” – but that was part of the charm. One of clients, turned one of our best friends (!) threw a fiesta for her son’s first birthday party – and we were lucky enough to be able to borrow some of her awesome decor! Table runners, maracas, tiny pinatas, sombreros – she had it all!
The invitations were printed on wood – full color. We did a fun patterned envelope liner, to mimic a Mexican blanket pattern. We also printed custom napkins, tent folds for the dessert bar, bar menu, a large sign for the dessert backdrop + utilized a package of “loteria” cards to make a banner.
Karrie could moonlight as a florist (not kidding!) – and she used Spanish / Mexican style cans to hold her gorgeous floral arrangements. She did big and small – and they were the perfect addition to our tables (belly bar, large tables for seating / eating + the featured tables – dessert bar, bar + food table).
Custom sugar cookies (by Elizabethan Bakery) were a huge hit – as was the carrot cake; Scott’s favorite! (also by Elizabethan). We added in some salted caramel bites + Mexican chocolate brownie squares (homemade) and the dessert table was complete!
Most importantly, the birthday boy loved his party – and we had a fun time planning + executing it! 🙂
