My sister’s Mexican-themed bridal shower was a great success! She really enjoyed herself, and towards the end of the shower, she told told me it was exactly what she wanted! Mission accomplished!
We had perfect weather for the shower! Sunshine and blue skies! 😎
The decor for the shower was a mix of bright, colorful fiesta and backyard chic. 😉
The beverage bar was a hit! It was a great place for guests to gather and mingle.
Available at the bar were a number of beverages: summer sangria, margaritas, beer, lemonade, iced coffee, and water.
I drank a few (hundred) glasses of sangria. 😳
The shower favors were so fun! 😀
Inside a “frosty” margarita glass was a nip of tequila, a lime, a couple of candies, and customized margarita mix.
So cute! My mom found these online here.
For the guests who didn’t drink alcohol or who were underage, we made “virgin” favors with a mini bottle of water, a kiwi, a couple of candies, and customized lemonade mix.

The bride and me:
The food, of course, was Mexican-inspired, but much of it was light and healthy, too.
I never made a plate for myself (I probably should have), so I grazed all afternoon.
After eating, it was time for the bride to open presents! My sis had her work cut out for her, but the bridesmaids moved things right along.
My sister got a little help from my cousin Erin, too. Remember her at my shower last year? She’s too cute! 😀
Then the groom arrived to help open gifts.
One of the bridesmaids had a wonderful idea for the shower. Each of my sister’s college friends and her bridesmaids decorated a wine bottle for the couple to drink together at a significant event during their married life. For instance, the first Christmas they spend together, their first anniversary, and when they buy their first home.
Each of the girls wrote a poem related to their occasion and read it to the bride and groom before giving them the wine bottle. Most of the poems were hilarious!
The wine bottles were such a cute idea! My sister and Pat loved it! 😀
My mom, sis, and me:
After presents and wine bottles, we brought out the desserts. Mmmmm!
The cake from Konditor Meister was gorgeous! Thanks, Linda! 😀
After dessert, the party started to wind down, but Erin was just getting started with pinata!
Eventually, candy rained down from above! 😀
My sister took a quick photo with her college friends before saying goodbye to everyone.
Soon, the men came to gather the gifts and my sis and her groom headed home.
And they lived happily ever after.
WOW I am blown away, your mom is amazing for pulling this off. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G lady she is.
I am sure the wedding will be wonderful to. 🙂

This is this kind of a wonderful resource that you’re providing and also you give it absent free of charge. I love seeing web sites that understand the value of offering a quality useful resource for free. It?s the outdated what goes about comes about program.
My daughter is the maid of honor for her girlfriend whose favorite cuisine is Mexican. My daughter is away at school, so I’ll be doing the shower (she’ll fly in to attend). With your permission, I am plagiarizing some of your ideas. I too, would love to give out favors in Margarita glasses and would love to know where you purchased them. Thanks for sharing you ideas and photos. Your shower was amazing!
