Let's focus on the postive, shall we? We had a good five hours of party greatness and overall the heart of the party was present. The decor was lovely, many good friends and family came, and there was lots of great food as well as an amazing signature drink, Sangria.
Check out the delicious menu:
These gorgeous flowers are from the Mpls Farmer's Market and the bold colors reminded me of Mexico.
I've been saving mason jars for months now and tied colorful ribbon around the top and filled with long-burning votives.
Kristin brought over lots of great decor.
Biffer dressed up for the party. It was a big hit.
These colorful lanterns were my favorite part of the decor. At night they just glowed and created a cool ambiance.
What is a Mexican Fiesta without a pinata? My favorite part was after Libby broke it open about 10 neighborhood kids appeared and we had them join in and collect all the candy.
The buffet, thank goodness for crockpots.
The gorgeous lanterns at night.
