We aren’t super big on celebrating Cinco De Mayo around here but I am known to throw a themed dinner party on a whim. Just because I like to keep my family guessing.
When I was at CHA back in January I ran into this amazing group of women who own Sabor Papel and I loved them right away. They were my kind of women. Open, loving, and having a great time. And their papers were amazing. You know I love learning about people from all walks of life and these ladies were just so kind…I wanted to spend the rest of the show in the booth hanging out with them.
Anyway, I got a sample of some of Sabor Papel’s papers and knew I needed to have a little Fiesta so I could make invitations and party favors. This is the invitation – of course.
