PARTY DETAILS, as told by Kelin

We celebrated Sutton’s first fiesta on Cinco de Mayo 2013. Baby #4 and the last first birthday party I will ever throw! We wanted to make it very casual with our closet friends and family. This party truly was a labor of love…everyone helped out with all of the handcrafted details.

My husband built a custom photo booth from scratch, a family friend who’s hobby is woodworking made the beautiful dessert stands. My girlfriends helped out hand painting maracas as party favors, creating a custom UNO sign wrapped in yarn, and mommy had help from big sister, harper, making the first year banner and all of the other banners and signs.

Guests sipped on homemade agua frescas, homemade horchata, homemade “DOTTS MARGARITAS,” Jarritos & cervezas. Wilo the caterer prepared ‘made to order’ food for each guest including authentic carnitas, carne asada, pollo, tacos, burritos, nachos, quesadillas, etc. The postres table was complete with fresh fruit, churros with an authentic dulce de leche dipping sauce, galletas (sprinkled cookies), chocoflan & of course a smash cake for Sutton!
