40th Fiesta & Superbowl

Finally, here are a few pictures of my big 40th Fiesta.  I will apologize now for the lack of pictures.  I tried my best to take some decent pictures...but after a few beer margaritas (which are delicious, btw), I couldn't remember where the camera was :)

So here goes..

A little of the decor.  I used the great Fiesta printable collection from paper & cake and Jo Ann of Oh goodie designs sent me a box of fiesta goodies.


I made a few tissue paper flowers that I put in clean frap bottles  


No pictures of actual food..but we had grilled chicken, black beans, cilantro/lime rice & all the fixin's.  I even made some cute salt & pepper shakers using empty beer bottles.

 Notice my festive 3-tiered stand??  It was used to hold 3 levels of chips -  worked perfectly!

Maria of Love & Sugar Kisses did an OUTSTANDING job with the cupcake toppers.  I got so many compliments about them & they were quite tasty too!!

My mom always makes me a chocolate birthday cake.  Awww :)

 I got a pinata..filled it with tattoos, gum and little maracas for the kids.  
I also made sure they had a few extras to keep busy

I couldn't pass up the chance for a "40 Sucks" display 
(made the holder from a yellow box from Costco)

I also wanted everyone to know that I appreciated them celebrating with me.
I made little fortunes that said
"I'm fortunate to share my birthday with you.  
Thank you for making it special"

Cupcake liners from Hey Yo Yo made cute fortune cookies.

And because I really wanted to help raise a little money for a family in need,
I put out a 'tip jar'...
I collected ~$100 :)

We had lots of food left over & lots of beer too..so the party continues :)

It was a great birthday party/Super Bowl party 
(even though, I didn't care who won)!!

I'm hoping 40 is the best yet!!

Looks like it was fun--happy belated!! And I understand about the photo taking... as I was throwing out stuff from our Super Bowl party I suddenly realized I hadn't taken any photos! You get so caught up in hostessing!
