Fiesta Time

When your Tex-Mex Papi turns 70, theres nothing left to do but to throw a party fit for even the littlest of cowboys! My sisters and I combined forces and created a fiesta filled with all sorts of fun...yee-haw!
The Set-Up
The tables were set in my backyard, under the shade of the trees. Instead of plates our cowboys used tin bowls and sipped their drinks from a fun mason jar {or a margarita glass for our older cowboys}. Mason jars filled with bright colored flowers lined the checkered tables. We added some pizazz with black and white picture place mats going down the center of the tables. 
Our spread included: 
Drinks:
Tex-Mex Margarita, Jarritos, Tea, Corona's

Appetizers:
Shelled peanuts, 7 Layer dip, Cowboy Cavillar, Chips and Salsa

Main Dishes:
Cabrito {goat}, grilled chicken, Tex-Mex beans, Mexican Rice, tortillas

Dessert:
Ice Cream, Carmel-Sea Salted Peanut Brittle, and German Chocolate Cake

The Fun
A party wouldn't be complete with games. With pin the mustache on Papi, a piƱata, cruzin in our mini pick-up truck, a photo booth, and pony rides, the fun lasted all night!

The Photo Booth
No description needed...just a lot cuteness going on here.


The Pony Experience:
A true cowboy party wouldn't be complete without horses, right?!

Wrangling Up All The Cowboys
Planning this party for such a special person was so much fun. Seeing my dad enjoy the games, the food, and the atmosphere was well worth it. But I think what meant the most, was wrangling up the whole family. Being together to celebrate our Papi, the amazing man he was and the amazing man he is today was unforgettable. Feliz Cumpleanos Papi, te quieremos mucho!
