I was the first of all my friends to have kids, and living out here in San Diego it was hard for people to celebrate with us. I knew that I wanted to be a part of my friends’ kids’ lives back in Minnesota but I wasn’t sure how. I figured if I could make their baby shower invites, it would be perfect. I created an invite for my friend Kelli when she was due with her son Parker and now my friend Jenny was having a boy. My friend Kelli came to me and told me she wanted to throw a couples shower in the theme of a Mexican fiesta! How fun. I immediately started thinking about the bold colors and the fun textiles and amazing art work in Mexico. She wanted it to be fun, yet not like a Mexican theme bachelorette party or frat party.
I always draw inspiration from other place so I immediately googled “Mexican Fiesta Baby Shower”. The stuff that came up was to die for and so adorable. I found a few things that we both admired, like a cactus wearing a sombrero and traditional Mexican flag bunting (like square snow flakes). I knew she didn’t have to point me in any direction, I was already there. The result is so fun and I made matching thank you cards for jenny to send her guests afterwards. I hear it was fun fiesta!
