FIESTA THEMED ENGAGEMENT PARTY {Guest Feature}

fiesta engagement party by Ashley dePencier Photography

Cinco de Mayo will be here before you know it, but if you ask me, any time is a great time for a Fiesta!  Case in point, this fantastic Fiesta themed Engagement party photographed and sent to us by Ashley dePencier Photography in Southern California.

Everything about this party spells “FUN” from the chic table decor and colorful streamers, to the gold glitter accents and chalkboard signage.  Notice the sign-in table with cutouts attached with clothes pins, that can be used as drink markers – mustaches for the guys and lips for the girls.

You’ll also see a fabulous taco bar with glitter banner and individual bags of tortilla chips, just like you’d find at Mexican grills. This party brings together two seemingly unrelated elements – Mexican themed items and gold glitter – but they come together perfectly to create a unique and festive celebration thanks to Mint Design.

  3. I love the “Key Pieces” list at the end of your post – it really ties everything together in a very useful way – thank you! Plus the theme was fabulous – I never would have thought to put the gold glitter accents with the Fiesta – wow!

    • Oh, good. I’m glad that was helpful. I’m such a list maker. It always makes things seem much simpler when listed out. :-)
