Celebrations :: Father's Day Fiesta

It doesn’t take much to add pizazz to a party. Joanna, from LotusHaus Blog, made the basic Father’s BBQ into a fun fiesta with bright colors and flavorful dishes. For flowers, she bought grocery store bouquets and placed single red and yellow votives for more color. The tablecloth and runner were found at a local discount store and the colors really make the space pop. I love seeing intimate parties with such flare, it will make anyone feel more special.  She did a great job of keeping it cheap and bringing the fiesta to an otherwise standard BBQ. Lastly, she switched up the blah hamburger and hot dog menu to fit the theme: carne asada with aqua-mole salsa and spanish rice and beans. Luckily, she did not post pictures of the food, because my peanut butter and jelly sandwich is not doing a good job of holding me over.

Did you celebrate Fathers’ Day? What did you do?


Beautiful colors! I like the simplicity of the decor, not to crazy but nice and cohesive.

I made the best strawberry shortcakes for fathers day with organic berries, homemade biscuits and fresh organic whipped cream.

That sounds too delicious! I love fresh berries and creme.

I agree! She did a nice job with a small budget.
