My husband and I have birthdays around the same time of year. For our honeymoon we went to Mexico and last year, we went to Mexico for our birthdays. Our love of Mexico started a family tradition and we now have an annual fiesta to celebrate our birthdays with our families. Laura was nice enough to come over and take pictures of all the details before the guests arrived. Her pictures are always so beautiful and she probably thinks about details as much as me, so she knows just what pictures to take. 

On the fireplace mantel were pink, blue, and yellow votives and candleholders with gerber daisies attached to them. Each female guest got a flower crown as a favor that I hung from the fireplace. Each male guest received a sombrero and maracas were given out as well. 

Oversized margarita glasses were filled with multicolored jelly beans and M&Ms. I filled jars with gerber daisies, grass, and stock.

 I made a multicolored ribbon chandelier and added pink and purple sparkly butterflies

Food labels were held with the jeweled butterfly place card holders.

My color scheme was inspired from napkins I bought from Crate and Barrel. I also bought turquoise glasses, and gerber daisy napkin rings from Crate and Barrel, and turquoise chargers. 

Little sombreros hung from a curly willow tree.

 I put a brightly striped table runner on the table. The metal lanterns from were spray painted yellow for a more vibrant feel. Colored jars and vases were filled with purple spider mums, red gerber daisies, bear grass and yellow stock. From the ceiling hung paper lanterns from Luna Bazzar in various colors and sizes.

Cupcakes with pinwheels from Etsy seller: A Party Studio  were served for dessert.

It was a fun night with our families. I can't wait until next year!
