A 90th Fiesta!

This weekend we were so happy to provide a very special birthday fiesta feast for a teeny tiny West Texas woman celebrating her 90th year! The colorful desserts were inspired by the setting: an adorably funky Mexico-inspired home that is wall to wall fun. If walls could talk, this place would seriously be a raucous Spanish party any day of the week. For our fiesta tables, we pulled objects from the home and incorporated them into serving pieces, proving that you don't always have to keep your party tables super theme-y or over the settings where the location wows on its own, sometimes it is better to keep your spreads minimal and enhanced by a celebration of color rather than pageantry.

Crazy long hot pink candles are a new must for birthdays. So fun!!

Two of these adorable giant pink chairs await pool time royalty in the backyard.

The menu included: savory squash and corn tarts, chocolate wafers, brownie bites, funky candy jars, raspberry lemon tartlets, chocolate berry tartlets, strawberry cupcakes, lemon cupcakes, and a cute little lemon birthday cake! Get a load of that chandelier!!
