Fiftieth Fiesta

Last Saturday we threw a surprise party for my mom's 50th birthday!  It was a fiesta-theme, and I had a lot of fun planning it! 

I got these cute invitations:

from "Fully Designed" on Etsy.

Made some little centerpieces, using printables from The TomKat Studio:

We patiently waited, and waited:

until it was finally time to yell "SURPRISE!"

we had great food and drinks:
(guava and pineapple aguas fresca, margaritas and World's Yummiest Sangria at the bar, Mexican sodas and beer in the coolers!)

Hung out with family and friends:

{apparently my husband and brother like to dress like twinsies}
and beat up a piñata!

all to celebrate the best mom in the world!

YAY!!! I can attest to how LONG and WELL you have been planning this surprise! I am so glad it was all - and more - than you hoped. I have never met your mom...but as a mom to girls, I hope that knowing you is knowing just the tiny tip of the woman your mother is. I know this is true! XOXO

Love all the party details. The dingle balls. And especially those jars for the drinks! So pretty!
