And you were wondering where we were. Oh just a little busy organising the best Mexican Fiesta engagement party for an amazing couple we know. They were lucky enough to have two engagement parties one in their hometown of Christchurch and one in Melbourne. Miss L and I were lucky enough to have a part in helping out with the Melbourne party. I am sure this was due to our incredible effort at the Bride to Be’s High Tea.
They chose a Mexican Fiesta theme which was fine by us with our massive love of all things Mexican! So off to the Mexican store we went buying ridiculous amounts of Corn Chips, Jalapenos, Jarritos, Tequila and the list goes on!
For the food we had a simple menu of corn chips, guacamole and salsa, sliders with pulled pork or black bean patties, tostadas with pulled pork and pineapple salsa AND some amazing moustache cupcakes and some pinata cookies which we will share later on.
We were lucky enough to be able to use the couples house as a venue and brightened it up with some mexican flags, sombreros and a fun photo booth. It was all very easy and fun to set up. So easy that we started the day with a ladies lunch and then got our nails done!
It was an incredible night that ended in two straight hours of karaoke which involved eight of us standing around a juke box singing at the top of our lungs. Always a sign of a good night I say.
We are so thankful to have been a part of it and look forward to the couples big day. We love you two heaps!
Not a party without a moustache glass!
Sorry for the poor quality of this photo but yes it is a massive banner of the happy couple that was the entrance to the house!
