Gabe’s 40th // Fiesta Birthday Party // Santa Cruz

I’m the type of person who likes to celebrate just about everything in the biggest way possible, while my husband, on the other hand, likes to keep things pretty low key, so for his 40th birthday party I decided to host a laid back fiesta for our closest friends and family. I have to thank the ladies of Beijos Events for all of their amazing party ideas and for providing many decor items, and Katie from Wylie Weddings for bringing her elegant touch to help dress up the property with lots of beauty and bougainvillea. While Gabe may hate to be the center of attention, he loved starting his new decade of life surrounded by some of his favorite people on such a beautiful summer’s day. He still makes fun of me for picking fuchsia and turquoise as ‘his colors’ though. 🙂 Some of the party highlights included shots of tequila by the pool, badminton/corn hole wars, the taco truck and their amazing churros that they made fresh on the truck, watching the kids run wild wearing stick on mustaches and giant sombreros, and having the kids go home with a babysitter while all of the adults had a sleepover that kept us up until 2am! So thankful for such great family and friends full of heart and humor. It was a day we’ll never forget! Check out Style Me Pretty Living to see the full feature.
