There ain’t no party like a Boho Fiesta Party and with the weather so amazingly beautiful, it’s the perfect opportunity to invite your favs around for a fiesta.
When the box of Boho goodies arrived from Talking TablesI’m not going to lie,I did a littledanceat the vibrant colours, pom pom details and cute llama plates; I mean, who isn’t going to feel happy with cute llama plates?!
I’m so in love with this theme that I’ve speedily turned this post around because I couldn’t wait to share it, ha ha. I hope you love it as much as I do.
Exciting party decor combined with the excuse to invite friends over and legitimately serve up avocado and tortilla chips in cute little coloured baskets is always a winner in my eyes.
For me, the bunting sets the scene. I love that the flags are an unusual shape and larger than expected so they’re guaranteed to make a real impact and they really pull the scheme together don’t you think?
The cute little pom pom details are the absolute icing on the cake (or salsa on the chips in this case); the bunting, the knockout chandelier and these adorable picks complete with tassels which come in the same pack as our friend the llama.
My fire surround which you lovely people convinced me not to mess with is beautifully decorated with sets of three tropical palm leaves.Sometimes it’s best to leave things as they are and not get overly creative with them, hey?
I’ve mentioned before my love of wooden pallets before as they always come in handy when entertaining (check out my Mermaid Party). This time I stacked two small ones together and covered them with hessian coffee bean sacks which created the perfect table for our younger guests who sat on floor cushions.
As well as the tortilla chips and avocado, I served up pizza to keep the kids happy, grilled halloumi with honey and made a selection of salads including my favourite combo of pear, parmesan and parma ham drizzled in olive oil. Not strictly ‘on theme’ but delish all the same.
Drinks served in Frida Kahlo cups added to the boho vibe and got us inspired as it started a conversation about her history as a successful Mexican artist and iconic feminist. I simply adore the design and I’d love to see it on a cushion or art print, wouldn’t you?…
And as if by magic my wish came true! Not long after I styled this fiesta Talking Tables launched a Frida cushion and I couldn’t be more excited. Doesn’t it look fabulous in our summer house?
So there you have it! I’m sad to be signing off on this one because I loved it so much but I hope you’re ready to bring the vibe of Mexico to your next fiesta.
