uno: 
decorate your fiesta space with colorful pennant banners, a fun pinata, and creative centerpieces.

dip avacado-feta salsabasil guacamolequeso fundido with corn-bread dippers
bake cookies with a margarita cookie cutter and splurge on cupcakes from wild orchid baking company .

dress in something bright!! [1] [2] [3] and grab a drink!
and don't forget little love notes for your guests. 


besos
jillian
