Party Recap

River's Taco TWOsday Fiesta was a huge success! We wanted to try and keep things as authentic/traditional as we could for her party. (I just really don't love the typical "fiesta" decor you find at party stores.) With that being said, I knew I would be making most of her decorations or getting it imported from Mexico. I'm sure glad I started working on everything months in advance, otherwise it wouldn't have gotten finished in time! We had lots of family who travelled over 12 hours just to come help and to celebrate with us!

    This is just amazing! You are such an inspiration, I literally loved everything about these decorations! I am planning a cactus/fiesta themed party for my daughter and am wondering if you could share how you made the cactus cut outs? Or did you buy them from a vendor?
