¡Fiesta de Cumpleaños!

Lizzie and I had a joint birthday party last weekend and I have to say, it turned out pretty perfect. Some of Lizzie's friends came by and helped her eat cake and mommy and daddy's friends helped us go through delicious Mexican beers and margaritas. Hubby cooked all of the meat for the tacos himself: carnitas, lengua, and flank steak. I don't think I could have been any prouder of him. They were absolutely delicious! We could not stop eating. The decorations were my labor of love. If i retained anything from ninth grade Spanish, it is how to make a mean tissue paper flower.  
Take a look at our joint Fiesta de Cumpleaños! 

The drink station was a hit with the yummy margaritas and garland

2 and 30 balloons decorated the living room. 

Even doors need decoration, don't neglect the doors!

My dad sent us the picado flags for the backyard. I love them so much, I think I'm going to keep them up for a while :)

My mom sent us an edible arrangement that was a huge hit with the littles. And you cannot forget the limòn and chile for fruit cups. 

Piñatas are always necessary

The salsa selection. That top left corner is an avocado based salsa, so good!

I saw this sombrero and automatically thought it should hold the chips. Way more fun then bowls!
