|The happy couple Madelyn and Benjamin|
|The party planners ~my mom on the right and me|
The location was easy. A mexican restaurant with a casita in the back with a private patio, bar and outdoor fireplace. For those that know San Antonio, this is the La Fonda on Main.
|Private courtyard ~ La Fonda on Main|
We chose simple centerpieces with gold pottery from Anthropologie filled with assorted colors of Kalanchoes and votives with fiesta colored candles.
|Custom made Papel Picado|
A framed papel picado with the date of the wedding greeted guests and also served as a gift for the bride and groom to hang in their home.
No proper fiesta would be complete without mariachis!
For a fun activity, we provided a polaroid camera for guests to take photos of themselves and add to a photobook with advice for the newlyweds.
For those unable to make the trip to New Orleans, we made a collage of pictures from the wedding.
The bride and groom's table was decorated with special china from Anthropologie, hand painted tin love birds and a tissue flower bouquet.
A little whimsy on the bar ~ a picture of the groom passed out on the wedding night after being overserved at the reception! Good times!
Having a theme makes the planning so easy but for any theme the basics are the same. Location, decorations, music, food, drinks and a fun activity all make for a great party!
