Fiesta Anyone?

Throwing parties is one of my favorite things ever. Themes, invitations, menus, music, party favors. I love it all. If I could throw parties for a living, I would. But, I'm too lazy to look for clients and I'm not interested in dealing with insurance, contracts or Partyzillas.

I'm not Colin Cowie (my party idol), mind you, nor do I have a socialite's hostess budget. Which means I have to make most of the fabulousness myself. But, I love doing it and think I'm pretty good at it. So, I thought I'd add a blog feature called Fiesta Fridays. I'll share some ideas from shindigs I've thrown over the years and I'll probably come up with some new ideas and tips as we go along. Excited? I am! Here's a sneak peek from the first Fiesta Friday:
