Type A Planning had another milestone anniversary in April. Thanks to the support of family and friends, I’ve had some amazing opportunities over the past few years. I decided that it was high time we had a little appreciation fiesta for my supporters, mostly family and a few close friends.
I’m a transplanted Angelino so in honor of the upcoming Cinco de Mayo celebration, we have for you a special festive party! Cinco de Mayo like St Patty’s Day and Oktoberfest is a time to celebrate different cultures. I think its just fun to have themed parties!
Aren’t these baby Pinatas so cute? I wanted to be authentic, so I went far and wide to pick up my decorations.
On my quest I found vendors selling decorations, Mexican food, candies, and arts and crafts. I’m lucky to be in LA as all of these things were available to me just a short car ride away.
Me setting up for the fiesta time.
Handmade paper flowers in bright colors. I wish I had 100s of these to make all sorts of garlands. It’s eco-friendly too since its reusable!
Ready to party. The hanging garlands were so fun, just a little bit added to the ambiance.
Party time – Cocktail style… with TACOS!
A very lovely woman named Rosa came to cook delicious tacos for us all night. I personally ate 6 tacos and almost exploded.
What a fun night for all! I was able to do what I love to do – plan parties, and also to treat my special people to some fun, great tacos and drinks to commemorate our anniversary. What’s in store for next year?
