Let's Fiesta!

My Sweet Bella Rose was turning sixteen years old!
I knew her party needed to be bright and colorful just like she was!  She loved cactus and was a huge fan of taco bars... so I thought, what could be more fun than celebrating her special day FIESTA style!

The cactus along with some of Bella's Favorite colors became the inspiration for the color palette and overall party design.  We chose bright pinks, oranges and yellows with pops of green and turquoise.  Gorgeous watercolor cactus designs adorned the invitation and other printables.  Personal touches always make the party a bit more special!

We decided on a fun casual vibe so I set the table low and added a selection of cozy white pillows for seating. For the table runner, I found a bright playful striped pattern at my local fabric store. A simple piece of fabric can create such a stunning focal piece. The cake adorned with multi colored scroll designs and a fabulous hot pink topper became the centerpiece of the table, flanked by two lovely floral arrangements and the most adorable little ceramic cacti sprinkled throughout.

 Each place setting started with an elegant white paper doily place mat, topped by a hot pink plate and then a smaller coral plate with a darling gold scalloped edge.  I then placed the sweetest little favor box filled with yummy tropical gummy bears atop patiently waiting to be discovered by the guests. 

To the left sat a larger favor box with the cutest little cactus candle nestled in a cloud of fuchsia crinkle and neatly tied together with a simple coral ribbon. (Sometimes, I tend to go a little overboard with the favors!)  

Sitting to the right was a pretty blue glass adorned with the cutest swizzle stick place holder in a poppin bright yellow. Finally, as if there weren't enough adorable elements, a precious cactus napkin sat to the left to complete the sweet sixteen Fiesta!

I kept the dessert table fairly simple.  Beautifully designed sugar cookies, gorgeous cupcakes and brightly wrapped chocolate covered Oreos adorned the table.  The guests couldn't wait to dive into these delicious sweet treats but not before indulging on a fabulous Taco Bar fit for a king!

This was the absolute perfect theme for a most memorable SWEET SIXTEEN!
