Senor Crosby's Fiesta!

CONFESSION: Let's just preface this blog post with the fact that I basically FORGOT to take any pictures of the decorations at the party or before so many of the pictures were the next you won't even get the full effect but ehhhh, you'll get the idea.  Also sorry for the extra grainy iphone shots! A few posts ago, I showed you the invites & said that it was a fiesta theme so I went heavy on the pinata type fringe.  I made the cupcake toppers, the sopapilla toppers (seen below, I got no action shots of them...), and the fringe banners.  I hung several other banners and had some serapes placed about that ordered from a party supply company and my mom had some pinatas made for the party. 

Pre-party DIY-ing 

This guy was actually next to the front door, but the wind
was blowing like crazy so he had to move indoors.

Crazy hurr, don't currr. I promise his hair was somewhat "done"  before
he started running around like a crazy person. 

Sweet Cousins!

Post cupcake.

Do ya chain hang low?!

You know me, any chance I can get to quote an old school rap song, I take it! Here is a little purse DIY that I whipped up last month before heading to Vegas.  My friend Megan is a fellow thrifter and found me a hot pink snakeskin clutch (with a long strap so it can be worn cross body) and I of course loved it...when I got it in the mail, a thought occured: "uhhh I have that exact purse but in light pink/purple!" I have probably had it since college and hadn't used it in forever.  It's missing the strap and so I always just carried it as a clutch which I almost never use anymore...this girl needs a strap! I also decided I didn't need 2 pink snakeskin thrifted bags so I decided to try a little something on it.
