Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. - Fiesta Themed Baby Shower

Hola friends! Not gonna lie...I've been hiding all the tiny little details from my sissy-in-law's fiesta themed baby shower we threw this past weekend specifically for today's link up! 

Let's just go ahead and say 99% of the shower was Pinterest-inspired (Duh. Have you met me?) and below are the original pins we got the ideas from:
1 | 2 | 3 | 4

I won't do a lot of talking (err-typing) because, well, I'm one-armed these days and because the pictures kind of explain it all. When I say Pinterest threw up in my house this day, it is no lie...











Tissue paper tassel garland (original tutorial here)

Game prizes - "From our shower to yours" with body wash and loofah inside.
(Original pin here.)




Hostesses :)


Some of you may or may not know that my sister-in-law, Julie, is currently 25 weeks pregnant with TRIPLET GIRLS! (Yes-it's still SO surreal!) She's been on hospital bed rest for a little over 2 weeks now and her husband has been SUCH a trooper and has been attending ALL of her showers in her place. (Super dad, right? What man do you know that would be bold enough to face 20-something women at a baby shower?!) When it came time to open presents, we Skyped Julie so she could say "hi!" to all her guests and see all the gifts she would be receiving. It's seriously the neatest thing ever!


(Mirror and wreath in background also Pinterest-inspired...) 

Even Brian "ooh'd & aww'd" with us a couple times! ;)

Me and Brian, soon-to-be-daddy-of-three!! (Whoa.)

Asking me if I will I be hosting another fiesta-themed shower would be like asking if I add lime to my vodka. Perhaps I'm bias but it is probably one of THE most fun shower themes I've seen to date. ;) Just sayin'...

  42. Umm.. I'm preggo or anything, so can you please just throw me a fiesta themed party? Like, in general? :) That is TOO much fun! I'm half Mexican, so I'll probably be hinting to my sisters for a fiesta like this when I do have bebes of my own!
    Also, that is SUPER awesome that soon-to-be-daddy-o was such a trooper! I don't think my husband would do that. Maybe. Maybe not??
    And you look fab, by the way!
