I designed and styled this Mexican Fiesta Party Collection for Bird's Party EZINE Spring Issue that you can read here - And I worked with some stunning, talented friends (and family!!) for this fun party project! Check out the fun details below...

Party Printables:

The designs were inspired by the Mexican "Burrito" Pinata, with cacti, bright flowers, maracas and chili peppers party icons - Used to decorate party favors, dessert tables, cupcakes, straws and more!

The colors I chose were not necessarily traditional, but then again neither am I! I wanted something vibrant, fun and colorful to convey the feeling of celebration and party, suitable for a kid's birthday party or a grown up Mexican fiesta bash!

Party Décor:

For the styling, I wanted a twist on the usual, dessert table layout and chose a very relaxed, outdoors sit-down style where all the goodies, desserts  and party favors bags (decorated with a "Gracias" favor bag labels) are available at arms reach of the kids!

Logs from my garden were re-purposed as seating, and my garden plants acted as a natural table backdrop.

Paper Lanterns decorated with satin ribbon, Sombreros and Chilli garland (from my kitchen) were hung from the trees to add interst and height to the table.

The tablecloth was a bargain find at my local fabric store. Colorful paper plates and napkins as well as round place mats, added nice color blocks to the table decor. The  printable buffet labels were used here as placeholder cards with each guest's name.

The centerpiece was created using floral mousse, empty cardboard boxes covered with green wrapping paper, hardy grass from my garden and silk Gerbera Daisies from my local "dollar" store

Party Frocks: 

The photo I used for the cover of the EZINE Spring Issue is of my little angel wearing a stunning, gorgeous, handmade tutu and flower hair accessory by my darling friend Ashlyn from Cole Baby Tutu. 

Dessert Table:

Desserts tables included vanilla Cupcakes with Dulce de Leche filling and colored marzipan frosting (recipe coming soon), decorated cookies or Biscochos that can also be included in party favor bags, and yummy Cake Pops displayed in small terracotta painted pots.

Terri from Terri's Party Treasures provided the cake pops!

Not only these cake pops were beautiful to look at, but they also matched my designs perfectly; and they tasted scrumptious too! 

Another fabulous collaborator was Sara from Dandy Delights!! Since this was a Mexican Fiesta Party, I chose the Mojito Shortbread Flavor - Totally child -friendly (I asked hehe) but Sara told me it was more of a grown up flavor...Well, I guess my kiddos must have grown up taste then, 'cause there was not a crumb left! :)
