A First Birthday Fiesta

Lily Bean turned one recently and her parents thought that a South American theme would be the most apt theme because that’s where Lily Bean was……..*cough* conceived *cough**blush*.  I was so excited to be a part of the planning process, not only because it was a fun & unusual theme for a first birthday party, but also because Mark, Mel & Lily Bean are good friends of mine.  As with all planning, it started with an inspiration board…

The garden was decorated with papel picados and tissue paper flowers, which were a cost-effective, yet authentic way to decorate.  No South American Fiesta would be complete without a pinata, which we had made.  Grownup guests were served tortillas with all the trimmings, sangria and margarita cupcakes – made with tequila.  Melissa didn’t want the kids snacks to be packed full of sugar so we served fruit drizzled with chocolate, popcorn and alcohol free sangria and cupcakes.

Here are some pics from the day…
