Cacti, Margaritas & Fun // Celebrating Cassandra

 Fiesta, cacti and margarita party DIY

I threw a little fiesta for my friend Cassandra for her birthday! The margaritas were flowing and the fish tacos were spicy! Cassie is such a beautiful person and I am so happy I got to make her feel special on her birthday day. We had planned for our little gathering to be outside on our deck but sadly it was rainy so we quickly had to shift everything inside last minute.. but it still turned out great. Scroll down for details, sources and see all the fun!

The menu's, place mats, invitations and really the whole party was adapted & inspired by Studio DIY and Sugar & Cloth's #butfirstcacti brunch. You can download the original templates from Sugar and Cloths blog post here! - Thanks Ashley!

The DIY Cardboard Cacti was inspired by these ones from The House that Lars Built.

I bought the solar lights and pink plant holders from Kmart, you can find them here and here. I bought the baby cacti from The Borrowed Nursery and hand painted the white pots I also bought from Kmart for only $2.

The cactus balloons were a really easy DIY all you need is:

-1 large darker green balloon per cactus
-2-3 lighter green small balloons per cactus
-handful of small pink pom poms
-tape or glue
-sharpie

Tape the smaller green balloons to the side and the top of the larger green one. Glue or tape 2-3 pink pom poms to the outside of the smaller green balloons and draw "V's" with the sharpie.

I hope this inspires you to have your own little fiesta and happiest of birthdays to Cassandra!
