Tuesday two days ago marked the 4th of September which means we were celebrating my soon to be husband´s birthday.
It was a special birthday, not the number, but the last one without a
“wife”. We are getting married next week and I am so looking forward to
it. Can´t wait to be married to this awesome man I love so much and
spend the rest of our lives together hopping from one adventure to
another or even sitting on the sofa watching one Netflix series after
I am wishing him again a great year of 28 (we celebrated with
family and friends over at our house). He really enjoyed his party and had a great night.
I am quite sure by now you have recognized our party theme. I wanted to go with a Mexican Fiesta theme and have a tacco bar. A tacco bar is like a buffet but only is stocked with foods that go perfectly into and with your tacco.
I really love Mexican food and everyone else loved it too. The guacamole and the salsa was homemade by me (you can view the salsa recipe here and the guacamole contained avocado, garlic, cream cheese and salt and pepper). I also offered red peppers, green jalapenos, tomatoes, scallions, salad, corn, kidney beans, two kinds of cheese and chicken and minced meat spiced with tacco seasoning from Fuego. The tacco shells where from the same brand and totally fine. I got them from amazon with lots of other practical stuff like the tacco shell holder to present them properly and also a warmer with two oven dishes to keep the meat warm and enjoyable.
For dessert I planned on making a fruit salad and of course Florian´s birthday cake. Also my mom made rum balls from the leftover dough. I used half a melon as fruit bowl which is always cool and guests love that. The rum balls fit perfectly on the etagere and looked so pretty in their colorful chocolate papers. For the birthday cake I had this cake as a model. It isn´t the same but wasn´t bad either and in the end I decided to go with cream cheese frosting rather than with fondant. I added the wooden number to the cake which gave it extra stability and little sugar cacti.
There are so many themes to choose from and I think I have some pretty good ideas for a Halloween party. Stay tuned.
Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
