My Granny turned 80 today! We wanted to celebrate this milestone with a fun family party full of little surprises for her yesterday. It was great! She was so happy!
Since we live in San Antonio, a Fiesta-theme isn't hard to recreate and she already loves the style. I searched Pinterest and started pinning ideas and recipes. You can check out my board here: Granny's Fiesta. All of the recipes turned out tasty, so be sure to check them out.
We had a "photo spot", fun take-home gifts, tons of yummy food, and colorful decorations.
I started by making a lot of tissue paper flowers to be the bulk of the decor.
|Just a FEW flowers!|
Everyone had fun posing in the entry and playing with the props!
The rest of the flowers were used around the living, dining, and kitchen. Dollar store plastic tablecloths in bright colors along with cascarones and confetti made for easy table decorations. I used empty Mexican canned good cans to hold the colorful flowers and flatware.
The banner above the windows was a custom cut my mother made with her Cricut.
We had a special cake my Uncle and Aunt had made in the Houston area. And, surprised Granny with her favorite treat.....Bahama Buck's. They offer a cool party pack with everything you need to make Sno at home! So fun!
After dessert, the ultimate surprise arrived....a local Mariachi group came and sang for her! She was thrilled and the tears of joy said it all!

We had a wonderful time celebrating our Granny!
