After Parker and I graduated from college last spring, we decided to have a joint graduation party to celebrate! We debated what the theme should be for a while and decided upon a fiesta theme. Because really, what is more fun than eating tacos, drinking margaritas, and dancing to mariachi music!
We got Café Rio to cater, and if you haven’t tried it before, go, their salads are amazing. What I loved about our fiesta theme was that it allowed me to use lots of color in the décor. I found the cutest mini DIY piñatas on the Internet and decided to make them as part of the centerpieces for the tables. While they were extremely time consuming to make, they turned out to be my favorite thing about the party. I made them in a rainbow of colors and they were absolutely adorable. To go along with the fiesta theme, Parker made funky colored cactuses to stick in the yard which made for the perfect party backdrop. For the dessert table, I made fiesta sugar cookies, along with margarita and churro cupcakes as a sweet treat to finish the night off right! I loved all of the bright touches at our party and once our guests arrived it was so much fun to “fiesta like there was no mañana.”
