Olé olé let's par-tayyy!! I'm so excited to share our "Fiesta Forever" themed Girl's Night Out with you! It's our last GNO until the fall, so it's a little bitter sweet, but don't fret because we'll be having lots of summer funnin' with our weekly summer camps over the next couple months!
This review is based strictly on my opinion. I was provided the sample free of charge by Oriental Trading to provide my honest review. However, I only promote products I love and all ideas and opinions are my own.
Since pastels are so on trend lately, I wanted to create a super girly pastel fiesta to say hola to summer. Our rose gold sequin tablecloth and balloons from Northstar Balloons were begging to be paired with a lighter color palette, and I couldn't be happier with the end result! And I couldn't be happier to find all kinds of fiesta fun at Oriental Trading!
Here's what you'll need to host a girly summer fiesta:
Flower Vinyl Cutout Pennant Banner
DIY Wood Maracas
DIY Ceramic Mini Flowerpots
Mini Fiesta Donkeys
Silver Letter Mylar Balloons
Meri Meri Cactus Plates
French Milk Bottles
Varying Shades of Tissue Paper & Crepe Paper Streamers (I purchased the pastel colors at Walmart)
16" Rose Gold Foil Balloons
Nothing could be more girly and fiesta-ive than Mexican tissue paper flowers, so we set about making oodles of them to really set the mood. They were added to the backs of our new white child-size chiavari chairs (obsessed!), the table tops, piled in the fireplace, and hung on the walls. Having them as a repeated element throughout the party really helped keep the overall feeling cohesive.
My main chica Jen T. by Design created the fabulous printables including the invitation, bottle wrappers, place cards, framed printable, and bunting. As always they were on point and perfectly meshed with our theme!
The littles will be decorating the mini flowerpots then planting succulents in them, but we gave them a head start by adding a quick coat of spray paint to coordinate with the theme, as well as a little fringed edging.
The pots were also the perfect size to hold a yummy cupcake with a cookie topper from the amazingly talented Mel of Say Anything Bakery.
The adorable mini faux piñatas will make darling party favors. You can find the tutorial for them here.
And speaking of mini piñatas, how stinking cute are these little fellas on sticks from Lula Flora Designs?! They would look darling on top of a confetti'd cake!
We couldn't have a GNO without taking lots of pics, and these fun props will be perfect for our photo booth!
The main focal point of our GNO is definitely the Fiesta Forever backdrop! We (painstakingly) hand painted the Flower Vinyl Cutout Pennant Banner and after several coats of paint per pennant I definitely decided I was loco! LOL! I probably could have sourced a pastel colored one, but that would be against my party craft-loving nature!
The gorgeous rose gold balloons speak for themselves.
I couldn't resist another quick balloon project to fill in the space behind the table. Because what's a fiesta without a little olé?!
The balloons were inflated by my (now short on wind) husband, then we spray painted them in the theme's colors. Fringed tissue paper was added using double sided tape to make them a little more festive. They may or may not still be hanging in my living room. ;)
I cannot wait to say hola to summer with our little guests in a few weeks. I sure hope they're ready to fiesta until they siesta!
