Fiesta Daddy Daughter Date

Fiesta Like There Is No Manana!
For our 2016 Activity Day Daddy Daughter Date, we decided to do a fiesta theme. It was very colorful! Our guests ate Mexican food, and drank apple soda or water while listening to Latin American music in the background! The activity day girls helped us make many tissue flowers, napkin rings, and glued labels on soup cans. We planned simple activities such as fun photo booth with many props, writing postcards to our ward missionaries (even sent them pictures of our event too), played pin the tail on the donkey, broke a few pinatas, and learned a cha cha slide dance from a leader and youth volunteer in our ward! 

Invitations
I was inspired by Once Wed, which I found from Pinterest. I loved how the colorful fringe turned out! Supplies: We used a package of colorful tissue paper, card stock paper, gems, scissors, glue stick, and invite printouts. Credits: I used black chalkboard paper from Mediterranka, clip-art by Revidevi, and the following fonts: El Rio Lobo, Jicama, and Matador.
Decorations
Over a span of two months, we collected many toilet paper rolls and soup cans. I designed many soup can labels, made some picks, made a place mat, posters, a banner, thank you tags, poppers, postcards, etc. My co-leaders and I were inspired by Pinterest for our inspiration for many of our decoration ideas such as the papel banner tutorialcactus wire center piece, plastic table cloth doorway, photo booth backdrop, napkin ring tutorial, poppers tutorial, poppers thank you tag, etc. Credits: The stuff I used to design my stuff were from the following: Anchored By Love's fiesta papers, black chalkboard paper was from MediterrankaKate Hadfield's clip-art, chalk board tags are by, black button is by Zoe Pearn, banner template came from Shabby Princess, frames are by Allison Kimball,.  I also downloaded and recolored (to match my colors) some fiesta picks from The 36th Avenue and Crafting Chicks.

Poppers and Thank You Tag
I failed to photograph the finished project but it was filled with lots of candy and had a colorful tissue top, which we hot glued down. I attached the tag at the end of the baker's string. I got the tutorial on how to make these Poppers from One Good Thing.

Menu
We did a soft taco/nacho bar. Appetizers were chips and salsa from Los Hermanos. We offered a warm flour tortilla and chips. We kept a bunch of crock pots warm with rice, beans (refried and black), and chicken, ground beef. As for the toppings, we had lettuce, tomatoes, chilies, olives, jalapenos, onions, green onions, hot sauce, salsa, soar cream, etc. For dessert, we gave them a dessert taco or drumstick ice cream (they look like maracas).

We used a Polaroid camera. We thought it would be fun to have the photos printed out to have for a memory keepsake. I downloaded and printed on card stock some cute Fiesta Photo Booth Props from Dating Divas.  We had an Mexican poncho, sombreros, maracas, a pink guitar, lips, mustaches, etc.

Pin the Tail on the Donkey

Last but not least the Pinata!
