My sister Jasmine's birthday was this past weekend. We had lunch together to celebrate- grilled chicken, carne asada, chilaquiles, rice, beans, chips, and salsa. We love homemade Mexican food. (I say Mexican, but my mom is Guatemalan, and we have plenty of Guatemalan food, too).
We added a few festive touches. I loved the idea of bright flowers in recycled jalapeño or salsa cans:
I've mentioned that my dad used to be a florist. We asked him to make the flower arrangements.
Lunch was delicious! For extra fun, we made strawberry margarita mocktails.
Oscar, my brother in law, made deep fried ice cream, which Jasmine requested. Jasmine and Oscar recently returned from a vacation in San Diego and were excited to have tried deep fried ice cream while they were there. It was dangerously good.
We enjoy celebrating birthdays and other events together. Check out more of our parties here.
