This weekend my baby sister turned 30! She is always one to joke about my old age! So, it was nice to welcome her into her 30’s and have her in my age group now. 30 is a momentous birthday and we decided that it needed to be celebrated in style! Along with my mom and sister, Ximena, we hatched a little surprise garden fiesta party! Daniela had recently traveled to Mexico City and fell in love with the color and all of the Frieda Kahlo so, we knew we needed some bright and festive and perhaps a floral crown or two!
Here is what the birthday girl got surprised with!
I love this face! She was so confused! She had a little birthday get together at a bar the next before and we were all there so she was super surprised to see this whole set up and her close friends and family again.
Let’s take a peek at what she saw. We were lucky enough to be able to use my sister’s newly finished outdoor courtyard. They had a pretty pergola and I knew that paper lanterns would be really budget friendly and help give me a big pop of color and make the whole space party ready!
One of my favorite sources for table linens is Leilani Wholesale. They have amazing price points. I’m always able to pick up cloth tablecloths for parties and they always have the ones that drop down to the floor!
I wanted a nod to the garden/picnic aspect of the party so, I went with blue gingham melamine plates! I already had the plates from Asher’s Baptism so, it was nice to get to use them again. I also got to reuse the Sip Sip Hooray champagne classes I used for Ximena’s bridal shower!
A pop of pink with cloth napkins.
I wanted some orange cutlery and I was happy to stumble upon these cute faux silverware ones.
I also set up a little table with some chips, extra cups, napkins, etc and a fun floral centerpiece! If my sister was an animal she would totally be an owl so, I had to use my owl as a nod to her!
Blankets in case any of our little guests wants to lay down in the grassy areas of the courtyard.
Garden party straws and drink umbrellas were picked up at Terrain.
We also picked up cute floral braided crowns for all of the guests to wear.
Cute party shoes!

It was a beautiful party and fun was had by all! Happy 30th Daniela!
