Fiesta de Dotty!

Categories   Kids Birthday Parties

You guys, this party? It’s like all of our party dreams come true. Bright, fun, full of families, yummy food, a sweet birthday girl… plus it’s insanely cute and we’re pretty jealous we weren’t invited. We might have flown to Dallas to spend the afternoon in the care of Bows & Arrows. Pin the entire party, and then plan a duplicate this summer! So many gorgeous photos by Ben Q Photography, we had a hard time not showing 100 more.

Alicia and Adam like to throw parties with a bit of culture that create an experience for everyone attending. This year they decided to celebrate Dotty’s Mexican heritage (she’s named after her two Mexican great-grandmothers) with a giant fiesta, conveniently timed just before Cinco De Mayo.

They decorated their backyard with papel picado garland flags and tissue paper flowers, had a seven piece Mariachi band serenade the birthday girl, and had a cake that looked like a pinata and was filled with candy. (NICE!) Plus they served tecate, tamales, and pb+j tacos. Love every detail.

Sports sunglasses are thosee products which are specially designed and manufactured, keeping inn mind tthe need of sportsmen. For many women, handbags are just as important as shoes. Most retailer have probably dealt with your wholesaler in the past so you can ask them how was it dealing with a specific whholesaler annd if it is worth your time and money.
