Party Like It’s 1999, Literally

We’re gonna party like it’s 1999, and the entire decade that brought us grunge, doc martens, 90210 and Crystal Pepsi (bet you forgot about that one).  While several people still think it’s cool and original to celebrate the 80s, we’re thinking we’re “The Bomb” by celebrating the 90s. Oh Snap. The Sistah’s been talking about throwing a 90s party (probably since the 90s) and it’s finally coming to fruition. We’re so “hella” excited we even mailed out invites.

To get us more pumped for the party, which is on Saturday, I’m dedicating the rest of this weeks posts to all things 90s. And I’m starting off with one of my favorite movies – Clueless. You’d be pretty surprised at the amount of movies I haven’t seen, and for every movie I haven’t seen I’ve seen Clueless at least twice. I won’t bore you with the amount of quotes I could recite (I’m sure you know a decent amount too), so instead I’ll share a little collage of the three I once considered my Best Friends – Cher, Tai and Dee.

Can’t wait to share pictures. I’m sure this party will be “off the heasy.”

Pictures From a Fiesta

Sorry for being a Lazy Susan yesterday and not posting my stILe finds, but I think you’ll like these photos of Dad’s Fiesta much better.

Party was a success. Our guests all arrived wearing white, creating a crisp and refreshing ambiance, which reflected nicely once the lanterns and candles were lit. We played Loteria (Mexican Bingo), danced with maracas, drank Agua Fresca, Mexican Coke and Jarritos, filled up mini bags from El Mercado with Mexican candy, got stuffed with street-style Mexican Tacos from a real tacquero, finished off with softest Pan Dulce I’ve had in years and sang Las Mañanitas to the birthday boy with a cake featuring his favorite actor, Cantinflas.

Happy 60th once again, Dad

Time For a Fiesta

The Sistah and I have agreed to plan a party for our Dad’s 60th. I’ve always been a collage-type of girl and Polyvore allows you to do so without having to reach for the scissors or glue, so I’ve created a little inspiration board to relay my vision for the partay.

Fiesta

If you haven’t guessed it already, it’s a Mexican theme. Our dad is super proud of his culture and this is a celebration of it for him.

The man in the black and white picture is not my dad. Cantinflas is the late Mexican comedian/actor best described as the Charlie Chaplin of Mexico for those who don’t know who he is. My dad has watched his movies about 100 times each and laughs hysterically every time as if it were his first viewing. Cantinflas cake?

We’ve asked our guests to dress in white just ’cause we think it’ll look cool.

White lanterns will hang from above.

No flowers on these navy-blue-tablecloth-covered tables (with zarape runners). We’ve opted for multiple, varied size vases filled with white candles because flowers are too girlie for dad.

Small cacti dispersed throughout – way more manly.

Okay fine, a bouquet of sunflowers will accentuate the buffet style table.

Mini Reuben sandwiches as an appetizer. Get it, get it?

I know, let’s drink the mojitos and margaritas from cantaritos.

Maracas will emphasize the beat of the music once people are ready to get jiggy with it on the dance floor.

I think that pretty much gives an overview to how I picture this fiesta. I hope to have some pictures to share after the event.

Happy {Almost} Birthday, Dad
