Fiesta Bridal Shower

I recently had the honor of planning a bridal shower. We choose a Fiesta theme because the Bride to Be and Groom are big fans of vacationing down in Mexico.

I wanted the overall feel to be pretty and elegant but with a fun fiesta twist.

I got all of the succulents and flowers from of course, my favorite, Afloral! I have provided direct links below but if you are looking for succulents, they have a vast selection you can see here.

In this arrangement I used the following items from Afloral:

Mauve Succulent Pick

Hanging Succulent

Large Peony

Peony Bud

Small Succulent

This little Geometric Vase is one of my favorites, I have several and use them all over the house. On the menu are these delicious plant based street tacos and dressings. Pictured below are jackfruit carnitas and they are amazing. To make them, I just shred some canned jackfruit with a fork, marinate in a little liquid smoke and chipotle seasoning, spread on a baking sheet and bake until tops are crispy and golden. For my Tacos de Papa recipe you can see this post.

These Margarita cupcakes were so good! You can find a plant based recipe here (I'd choose to keep the frosting white).

Throughout the party and table setting I used these simple succulent vignettes. I love how they marry bridal shower elegance with the rustic southwest fiesta theme. I used various sizes of glass cylinder vases, filled halfway with play sand from Lowes, and stuck a little succulent pick in the center. They couldn't have been easier to put together.

This throw from Target is one of my all time favorites. I love how it lends to the rustic southwestern feel. If you are interested in this Sip Sip Ole printable shoot me a message and I'll send it to you!

To line this envelope I used the image of a fabric, printed on lightweight card stock. I traced the envelope, cut it out and applied a little glue stick to attach. This festive paper doilie is from target's spring party line but I thought it had a fiesta feel to it!

If you are interested in a free template of this invitation or any of the printables (menu, signs) send me a direct message via Instagram.

All of these dressings and sauces are DAIRY FREE! if you are interested in any of the recipes shoot me a message but I will be providing an official recipe post soon!

I hope you found this post inspiring! If you have any questions on anything, feel free to ask!
