Since early March, I've been obsessing over the #ohjoyfortarget party collection from designer Joy Cho. The combination of traditional party flair infused with modern colors and shapes just takes the cake in my book. OhJoy is such a smart and sophisticated collection that may be used for any age and so many different party themes.
I was so excited that the party goods hit Target stores just in time for my birthday! Inspired by the Oh Joy's Garden Party launch theme, I tweaked it just a bit to be a Spring Fiesta theme to celebrate my Hispanic roots (I'm adopted!! :) and the arrival of spring. Here's the invitation I sent out . . .
Leading up to my party, my mom, cousins and I had a girls weekend in San Antonio which only fueled my inspiration for the Spring Fiesta. Here's a pic my cousin caught of me at La Margarita during dinner in the popular Market Square of downtown San Antonio . . .
After dinner, while perusing through the Market shops in San Antonio, I found so many festive touches I knew I wanted to recreate for the party, including this Mexican paper flower wreath I made to welcome guests . . .
As for the party table, I wanted to make a spring fiesta tree as the centerpiece so I clipped a branch from our backyard that was starting to reveal little green leaves and stuck it into one of my oversized vases (I love how the #ohjoy party hats drip from the tree!!) . . .
Then, I added a few feature treats to the tablescape including the #ohjoy cups for guest to help themselves to white sangria . . .
I also used the cute #ohjoy favor bags for guests to easily carry and munch on tortilla chips . . .
And then, I finished off the table with fun party hats and horns from the #ohjoy collection . . .
Since the party was for both adults and kids, I tried to create "wow moments" to suit different tastes, but it seemed the photo props were a big hit for all, including my sweet friend Nye and her adorable son Lucas (isn't he the cutest!!) . . .
If you're planning to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year, I hope this gives you a little inspiration. And, as always, I'd love to hear from you. BTW - are you planning to host or go to a Cinco party? Let me know in the comments section below. I'd love to know how you are celebrating :)
