All we needed was a sandy beach!
Some of you may know my daughter Jamie and her fiancé are getting married in Mexico this fall. Her Aunts hosted a beautiful and very detailed shower this past weekend.
Little by little all the decorations are pulled out onto the patio ready to be perfectly placed
The humidity was drippy high but the Aunts worked right through it in the mid day heat.
Don’t you just want to sit a spell maybe with a glass of sangria?
Four little bistro tables were nestled close together with each holding a brightly colored placemat and lantern in the center. A variety of festive napkins and rings were carefully placed and a parrot was perching on each lantern.
Pictures of Jamie and Dan were placed here and there. This one is from the night Dan proposed at a Mystery Dinner Party.
A meal was served of tacos, refried beans, several appetizers, fresh salsa from a Mexican grocer, a wonderful corn and black bean side dish among other things.
Guests of all ages began arriving. They were greeted with offers of Sangria, Limeade Lisa, Iced Tea or Water
Everyone was thrilled to see my mother make her first road trip after her fall.
The Aunts thought of everything!
A wonderful Tres Leche cake was served with a Best Wishes message in Spanish.
The cake was half strawberry and half coconut. YUMMY! It was from a local Mexican bakery.

Of course it was a special time for Mother and Daughter as well.
Please join me today as we thank Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for another Tablescape Thursday!
I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit and seeing a memorable time for our friends and family!
