Fiesta Wedding Shower

Busy week for parties ... as the Maid of Honor for my good friend, I helped co-host her bridal shower this weekend. It was a Mexican inspired Fiesta with lots of good times and good company!

The tent with round tables, Mexican Papercut flags and large tissue paper flowers on each table.

 Nametags - I like fun, themed name tags at events where everyone does not know each other. They help break the ice and make everyone feel a part of the event.

 The clear boxes contained Mexican Wedding cookies as favors.

 Mexican inspired appetizers and desserts for guests to snack on. We also have maragritas, coronas and a Churro frying station.

Harry Potter Movie Dinner

As a Harry Potter fan, I couldn't let the release of the last movie pass without a celebration! A group of friends whom I've seen several of the movies with joined me for dinner and a chance to reminisce about Harry Potter. Although I waited to long to buy tickets for the opening night, I look forward to seeing the movie soon.

 Bags with Harry Potter buttons as favors and to hold Honeyduke's treats!
 Festive table
 Bertie's Every Flavor Bean for all.
 Owls, wands and lots of Harry Potter books for decoration.
 Favor bags.

 Dessert - English Sherry Trifle in a cake pop - so much fun!
More dessert - pumpkin juice too.
